Re: output only prepared spells

Paul Grosse

It would probably be a custom spellbook that is checking for known & Prepared and only outputting those.

Fyi -  the sources I use include book name and page number for all the spells, so that final bit is ok, but, the idea is to have all the info up front.

Would this just be a filter in the Output sheet?

I know I can do that, but then that's just a list of spell names, whereas what we want is the full spell descriptions, *just* for the prepared spells.

Means that the big-bad has maybe 2-3 pages of spells rather than 23(!) and all the spell area effect/range/affect calculations are all done.

I'd second Ferret's plea.

The standard output for a Prepared-spell caster, is to print the entire spellbook, plus a small condensed table of names of spells prepared.

Our PCs don't use this option - the players faff around with their spell choices and dip into the big fat splat books they like so much;

I, on the other hand, as SG, would like to have explanatory notes for the spells and effects that an NPC is about to use for 10-20mins, before I move to the next NPC.

I'd like a spellbook for PREPARED casters, which looks like the spellbook for the SPONTANEOUS casters - expanded details of current spells known or prepared. Then when the notes state "cast cast Ferret Weaver's Incantation Of Fiery Words" I have some idea what it does, without having to

1) determine on the fly which book it comes from

2) find the book

3) find the spell in the book
