Scenario: A substance has been encountered which appears to augment damage done by weapons and, perhaps, implements. However, this substance appears to be harmful to those who come in direct physical contact with it.
For most weapon users, this is not an issue since they will simply coat the blade/tip of the weapon and leave the handle clean. However, for some implement users (particularly orb users) this is not a viable solution.
Some, if not most, implement users (particularly Wizards and Psions) have abilities (like Mage Hand and Far Hand) that let them move and manipulate objects without being in physical contact with them.
Could these powers be used to wield an implement for use with powers as well?
