Zap sends forth a stream of pure Chaos at your opponent
having a highly varied effect.  This effect is generally
quite damaging, but can at times be beneficial.  It is
rumored that even the gods fear the power of this spell.

If the caster is already in combat, there is no need to supply
a target.  The other combatant will always be the default target.
Thus, 'cast zap', while in combat with an orc, will 
automatically zap the orc you are in combat with, with chaos.

Due to its violent nature, zap cannot be cast quietly.
