  Well, I think I understand what he's saying, though it is a little 
messy...instead of just having it cast 'blah' <target> and it then say 
Okay, and have the wait after it's cast, have it wait before it's cast 
and for each wait 'tick' send_to_char "Casting: <spellname>" and after 
the wait state cast the spell...
