hey, I published a new book

Ye Olde Book of Spells is exactly what it says on the tin.  It's meant to be a handy reference work so that the players don't need to dig through the full size rulebook when looking up spells.  The majority of the text is borrowed via the Open Game License from Labyrinth Lord, with the following changes:
  • Ascending ACs have been added.
  • Where it previously said "save versus spells" I cut the "versus spells" part.  Since some rules use Ref/Will/Fort, I figure the referee can figure out what to roll against.
  • I added my own version of the 1st and 2nd level MU spells that appear in Holmes Basic but not in Moldvay Basic and later editions in that lineage.
  • Three bonus spells come from outside sources: Flame's Bounty and Soulbrand from taichara and Omar's Mistake from Matt Finch's awesome Eldritch Weirdness.
You can get Ye Olde Book of Spells in three different versions.
A5 size booklet from lulu, sold at cost.
Free download from lulu.
Free version formatted so you can print and assemble your own booklet, on scribed.

I hope you dig it!
