I can't remember the official rule on resisting, but I always ruled that
each spell is resisted independently, so someone with 12 MP is resisting the
5 spells at 85% instead of one big spell at 60%. Similarly, the small spells
are more likely to be bounced by protective magic. I once had a player
sorceror kill himself by sending 17 1-point Venoms at a big monster, not
knowing that it had a "reflects 1 point spells" chaos feature.
