I guess someone may already have asked some of that but I just didn't find.
All these questions concern the "Green-eyed boy" scenario of course.

1) Are the investigators allowed to attack each other with special cards (Lantern, Fire extinguisher...)?

2) Are the investigators allowed to attack each other with spells?

3) If they can attack with spells, which effect gives Shriveling card "Deal an amount of damage equal to the monster's damage value +2" when used against an investigator?

Investigators can target each other with "attack" effects (including No Weapon attacks, weapons, and Attack spells), but not card effects that deal damage without being considered attacks. (Of course, you're free to house-rule that smashing a lantern over another investigator's head is legal, but officially it isn't possible.)

And I have no idea what to do with that Shriveling card.

Shrivelling spell question, has it been sent to FFG?

Nope yet. Do you think I should?

Ew, for some reason I thought that casting attack spells on one another wasn't allowed.

Well, since the investigator has a damage value of 0 (none printed!) I'd say the spell does 2 damage.

Now, be on the lookout for the Shrivelling spell that instantly kills a humanoid surprise

If I remember correctly Shriveling should not work, since the card explicitely states a "monster", and another investigator is not a monster. It should even be stated in the latest FAQ

In "GEB" setup it is said that investigators may attack each other as if an investigator's a humanoid monster.
On Shriveling card it is said "Spell. Attack."

Nope, Shriveling's an Attack so it's legal. Only fake attacks like Typewriter can't be used.

I like Tibs' solution. A general rule of "any number that doesn't exist is zero" makes sense.
