If that's true, doesn't that defeat the purpose of having such a spell? Because now you've got an attack that's capped at 1d, maybe 2d if you have a swing throwing weapon, that takes three turns to execute.

One turn to draw the weapon, one turn to cast, and one turn to actually throw. If the whole point of Poltergeist and Winged Knife is to throw a thing except at a higher ST, then it seems to me that casting the spell should just throw the thing on that round.
