When Used in Combat

With a flick of your wrist, you embed the magnetar in the floor directly at your opponent's feet. What at first appears to be a near miss turns into a direct hit as the uber-powerful magnet draws several pounds of electromagnetically charged items directly into it. Your opponent takes X damage.

sometimes, in addition:
You pick up one of the smaller items as skitters across the floor toward the magnet.

You got an item: badly bent knife Bent-knife.gif
You got an item: dark arts Lawn-darts.gif

You got an item: mangled data plate Data-plate.gif
You got an item: metal-rimmed frisbee Frisbee.gif
You got an item: pocket laser Pocket-laser.gif

or, less frequently:

You hurl the magnetar at the <foe>. A moving magnetic field produces an electric field, and this is a very powerful magnet, and it's moving very fast. Within moments the air is filled with electricity, some of which shocks your opponent for X damage.

If you don't have Electric with Excitement active, in addition:
Some of the electricity in the air rubs off on you, too. Not enough to hurt, just enough to add a little sparkle, if you will, to your perspective. You gain an effect: Electric with Excitement. (Added for 35 minutes.)

If used more times than you can:

You've already used that star as many times as you can.
