Instead we see what appears to be a couple of new spells. A 2nd level spell would be Conjure Minor Item, which causes something like a coil of rope to appear temporarily.
Magic Sword has got to be a more powerful spell, maybe 4th level, which causes a +1 sword to appear in the M-U's hands and lets him use it temporarily as if a Fighter. In fact, the spell seems so potent, that I wonder if P.M. isn't just a Fighter/Magic-User who already had a +1 Sword on him...
Oh, and there's a green dragon! Instead of exhaling chlorine gas, it breathes fire through its nostrils.
