Alternate names: Dangerous powers, Hazardous magic

The first video game about Hazardous powers was released in 1990.

Beamdog , SSI and Blue Manchu has published most of these games

Such as throwing an AOE (area of effect) spell at your feet causes yourself to feel its effects as much as anyone else.

This is not simply about friendly fire but rather that the caster themselves get hurt from poorly managed powers (such as those AoE things).
