One of the most requested features has finally made it into the Spellbook, D&D 3.5 app. You can now view spell lists & domains for all the standard casting classes. They are presented as collapsible lists, so you can click on the Level or Domain header to open or collapse a group of spells. You can also access the Menu to collapse or expand all spell groups. I’ve also added short descriptions to each spell in this view, as you would find in the Players Handbook. I hope this will make spell selection and planning easier.
I also added a What’s New dialog popup when you first launch the app or upgrade to a new version, which will inform you of any changes, and also addresses the most commonly asked question:
Q: Can you add more spells from the Compendium or other books?
A: Unfortunately only spells from the SRD are open gaming content. Spells from the Spell Compendium or any other book are copyright protected. If you do find additional Open Gaming Content, I’ll be happy to add it in.
If you open up to the first page of the Spell Compendium or PHB2 or other book with spells in it, you’ll find some legal information stating that the content can absolutely not be used without written permission. I’ve gone ahead and written in for permission, but Wizards of the Coast has not gotten back to me.
I hope you enjoy this new version. Next I’ll be adding sorting by class and level for spells you’ve added to your spellbook.
