If anyone cares, I've begun work on a master list of every spellcaster class. I figure if I'm going to have a spellbook, I need what you can cast those spells with, ya know?

Anyrate, free free to review the rough draft HERE.

Hey, Captnq, I really appreciate what you're doing here... it really helps my game. I've got some time and would love to contribute but don't want to duplicate what you're already doing.  If you want to suggest something that you need done, I can go scour the books (PDFs) and boards to compile stuff for you.

@Captnq - I've noticed you've split The Spell Book into 4 seperate parts.  Any chance you could give them names that all start out the same so they sort together in a list of books?  Maybe add "TSB" to the start of each file name?

Still loving 'em!

What I need most is write ups. Just pick any spell that doesn't have a color and write up whatever you want about it. In fact, if you see a spell I already wrote up, pick that and write something up and as long as you aren't clearly wrong (ie, I can fly by shooting magic missiles and grabbing them and hanging on!) I'll be more then happy to add it. I've added very little since the last release, and what I did add is a few corrections, updated a few spell lists, and did spell corrections.

However, some other people did some spell threads elsewhere and I just copy and pasted the interesting ones into the Spellbook. So if you see a thread that looks like, "Hey, now that's kinda cool." Just post a link here. If you want to write up your own stuff, just pick a spell and PM me if you want to avoid spam.

Okay. Note, currently the Armor Handbook (Which is turning into the Combat Equipment Handbook) is occupying most of my time currently. I do not look forward to bookmarking everything all over again. :tongue The file names were originally... well, An old file system that I've discarded since the EVD has come one step closer to realization. I would say when I finally get the CEH and the Spellbook and the Rods, Rings, Staffs, and Wonderous Items done, then I will declare it the first Rough Draft of the Encyclopedia Vinculum Draconis. The classes will have to wait, I think.

bBut the armor section is coming along nicely.

Uh. So no one is going through the posts on the main handbook page thoroughly, I see.

Animal Lord (CAdv25) does not progress spellcasting. Thanks for creating a list I could check mine off of. I added a few

Oh! Thanks!

AH! I had a 3rd edition Animal Lord in there. 3.5 animal lord has no spells. Gotcha.

+- ORIENTAL ADVENTURES (3.0) (3.5 UPDATE)

----------

Also Savage Species has "Major Resistance" and Spell Compendium has "Resistance, Greater". But for some reason you have dropped Major Resistance and put Savage Species under Resistance, Greater eventhough Savage Species does not have it. The spells look identical though.

Anyway thanks for the handbook. It's a great compilation! :)

EDIT: Floating Disk, Greater from SpC seems to be missing. There is Tenser's Floating Disk, Greater which was renamed.

EDIT2: Easy trail is listed twice and the first should have SpC as the source and second one should not. Also Cloak of Bravery, Greater is listed twice. The first entry should have CW as the source and the second one should not.

EDIT3:
--
 FLAMEBOUND WEAPON
 - FIVE NATIONS (3.5)
+Transmutation
 Level: Silver Flame (Paladin) 1
 Components: V, S
 Casting Time: 1 swift action
--
 IRON BONES
 - GHOSTWALK (3.0)
 - SPELL COMPENDIUM (3.5)
+Transmutation
 Level: Cleric 4, Sorcerer/Wizard 4
--
 PLANAR TOLERANCE
 - PLANAR HANDBOOK (3.5)
 - SPELL COMPENDIUM (3.5)
+Abjuration
 Level: Cleric 4, Druid 4, Elysium Domain 2, Ranger 4, Sorcerer/Wizard 5
 Duration: 1 hour/level

EDIT4: PRONOUNCEMENT OF FATE: Spell Resistace and description should be new line separated.

For the spell Combined Talent, you have some extra text at the end.  (Spell Book v4.07)
Quote
You allow one of the subjects to make use of the skill ranks of the other subject, in place of her own, up to a value equal to your caster level (maximum 10 ranks). You must decide which skill is affected when you cast the spell, and the spell lasts for long enough to attempt a single use of that skill, up to a maximum of 10 minutes. The beneficiary of the spell uses the other subject’s skill ranks in place of her own but applies her own ability, racial, and other modifiers. The second subject does not lose access to his skill ranks while under the effect of this spell.
another Reflex save (DC 15) to avoid catching fire.
Material Component: A drop of oil and a piece of flint.

The text seems to come from the next spell in the book, Combust.
I looked up Combined Talent, and there is no MC for the spell.  It should end right after "while under the effect of this spell."

You have "Cort" instead of "Sort"

In the Spell List, under Bard second level, you have Catapult and Opportune Dodge on the same line

Quote
Catapult: Magically propel an object from your hand. Opportune Dodge: Subject can avoid a single attack of opportunity.

Opportune Dodge should be on its own line and moved into correct alphabetical order.

This spell book is an awesome idea!

Does anyone have a version of this spell book with only the spells in it, without the editor comments and potion/scroll/etc values?

My intention is to create a database for the spells using an automated script.
