Spell Descriptions and Other Documentation

Recommended Posts

Is the documentation still work in progress? I only get a "404: There is no github page" when clicking on an individual spell.

Thanks for the release.

1) For later releases, would it be possible to trim the description of the spells to actually match the game? 

E.g gate spell, lv. 9. Inside the description it is made a reference to demons turning on their casters, but after reading the mechanics description there is no reference to gate demon actually turning on you.

The site linked above contains the actual spell descriptions used in-game in v4b17. This was provided because all the other references are out of date.

If you notice any instances where a spell's description and behaviour don't match, please report that as a bug.

Okay I will. Thank you Mike1072. Last question: is there anywhere a readme containing the original version of a spell ?

Vanilla spell descriptions are now included in the online documentation and I spiffed up the individual spell pages a bit.

Thank you very much.
Te ability to select specialist mages and see which spell is available is extremely convenient !

I know that it is really asking much, but could there as well be a one page version, containing all of the descriptions in one big file, in addition to the current « TOC + one page per spell description » ? That would help when you want to do Ctrl-F to find all spells that protect from / negate the effects of another one for example (Pierce Shield, etc.), or negate a specific effect like confusion. (Yeah, sorry. 😅)

Well, about the contents, I have read through a many of these descriptions, and it looks like you really have made a good job (again) ! There are now so many spells worth using that it will make it even more difficult to pick spells than before, and it makes me wonder if I should stick with a specialist mage instead of a sorcerer haha. 😅

Thank you again for all that work. 🙏

I would encourage you to upsize the spell icons in the spell list page.

Thanks, I've updated it so the icons are now all displayed at their original size.  You may need to do a hard reload to see the change.

Thanks for the kind words.  I'll consider this.  For now, you can view the mod's translation files to see the entire set of arcane and divine descriptions at once.

Good.

Any chance you could make the specialist mage types clickable:

... so they would lead to their own (mage) spell selections ?

Okay. I've turned them into buttons that take you back to the spell list with the class filter applied.

Also, may we have an option to view all spells of a level in a list so we needn't click each spell individually?  What about showing the revised and original versions of a spell side-by-side or one on top of the other to help readers understand what's changed from vanilla?  Alternatively, giving a note per spell about what's changed since vanilla also works.  (After writing this I noticed all spells include links at the bottom to their vanilla/revised versions.  Neat!)

As you noticed, your best bet for determining changes is by comparing the two descriptions.  We used to have a short summary of the changes to each spell but it became very outdated and wouldn't be of any help in its current state.

Viewing all the spell descriptions of one level on a single page is sort of similar to the request that @ThreeQuarters made to view ALL the spell descriptions on one page.  Would something like that, ordered by level, work for you?

I've moved the rest of your questions here.
