Newer Post Older Post Home. I programmatically reformatted most of the ranges, durations, areas, with more standardized abbreviations, and shortened many spel the material component listings.

Statistics and Conclusions Now we can present some descriptive statistics on the overall work: Looking at the list more closely, I think that James duplicated any spell with multiple “schools” of magic listed so spel appear separately when sorted, I suppose.

I agree that I’ve been jonesing for this for years.

Certainly I agree, especially the more world-specific ones. I use these for my 1st edition games, though Iwzard strictly enforce material components. Delta June 22, at 5: Roughly comparing it to Math, lower level spells are basic arithmetics, middle level spells are linear algebra and calculus and higher levels spells are the Simplex algorithm and the Boltzmann equation The second thing is the disparity between spells with damage and those without.

Deck of Spells OED: I corrected some spell name typos and missing spells. The most glaring is that every spell was entered multiple ocmpendium, once for each school of magic to which it belongs. Lower level spells are simpler and more common because they are all around spells usable in many situations or very frequently while higher levels spells are used in specific context.

His counting there different from mine indicates 3, spells total! And I inserted the frequency data indicated in the Compendium Vol.

I de-duplicated all of the spells and collected the schools into one field each.

Yeah, I can see that as being very awkward to represent in the database format. Newer Post Older Post Home. Middle level spells are more numerous because they are the middle ground between simplicity, power, etc Anonymous July 26, at 2: I’m sure there’s still a bunch of errors that I haven’t yet caught.

I deleted the extra columns for various specialty wizards which could be discovered by inspecting the schools listing but were in many places out-of-synch. Veras August 3, at 9: Posted by Delta at 5: I may continue with my index and add damage as a separate column; if I do, I’ll post a copy. Popular Posts First Post! I keep waiting to see these turn up at the used bookstores or FLGS because that’s a lot spell chaff to stuff into random scrolls, and some of those spells really are ridiculous if what I’ve culled from old issues of Dragon is any indication.

Delta April 17, at 6: It makes it impossible to gather vital statistics on the work, starting with simply knowing how many different spells there are. Existing more 2nd and 3rd level spells than 1st level spell always bothered me but crossing it with rarity makes sense to me now.


Mel January 21, at 2: I like to think that low-level Magic-Users are more desperate for spells and material in general, and hence more willing to trade spells they find. So, below you’ll see a version that I massively re-formatted and corrected. Hopefully the other volumes will be made available shortly.

James Rizza at Dragonsfoot made what seems to be the first attempt at this here.

Also I wish the list included wizad identifiers, but that’s not here. Delta January 21, at If it has any novel features then it’s likely above 1st-2nd; if it’s actually usable in a game and not just a plot point, then it’s likely less than 7th-9th.

A spreadsheet index of all the spells is available from James Rizza on Dragonsfoot.

I’m sure that wizarrd done to enable sorting by school, which was an important mechanic for 2E specialty spellcasters, but an immensely better way to do that would be to use the spreadsheet FIND function appropriately.

Some of the spells are just ridiculous. The latter is one that I’m really curious about. Ozymandias September 14, at From an outside design perspective, I tend to think that those middle levels are wd&d the average “interesting” spell creation will land e.

I separated out reversed spell names from the name field, where they were previously appended.
