Last night when I was DMing I had an NPC wizard who had Magic Missile. The description states “each dart hits a creature of your choice”.
In this instance what would be considered a creature? The player characters?
When I look up creature in the manual it looks like “a creature” means an animal and not a humanoid, so Magic Missile would not be effective. I guess this would be true the other way as well: if I am playing a wizard I could not target most humanoid monsters/villains.
Am I reading this right?
