In Ultima 8: Pagan, many spells can be cast. I noticed this first when casting the Aerial Servant spell, when you cast it, the Avatar starts the cast animation, but then will switch back to standing straight, and then will continue casting the animation, and then will stand straight again.
Usually, in the game, the Avatar will start the casting animation, will end with one hand out straight, then the Aerial servant will appear and move to the target, and then the Avatar will continue the casting animation to bring the fists to his waist, then the Aerial servant will travel to the second target, and then the Avatar will finish the casting animation.
This stuttering with the casting animation seems to occur with other spells as well, but none so obvious as the Aerial Servant spell.
Not a fatal error...really minor, so this can be a later fix.
