Spell Compendium I


Do you miss the expansive spell lists of previous editions while playing your 5th edition D&D game? Look no further! Here are over 50 pages of spells from the past, all converted to 5th edition. The spells have been redesigned to keep the flavor of the latest iteration of the game while offering your casters the wide variety of spell choices players enjoyed in days gone by. More than 150 spells are included in this volume, covering spells beginning with the letters A and B. 

Please use the preview tool to get an idea of the spells contained herein. Additional volumes of the Spell Compendium will soon be available.

There is no preview, either full or quick.

Are the spells from 3.X or did you go back to both editions of AD&D?

Thank you so much for that notification. I went back to the product page and verified that the previews were enabled. I un-checked and re-checked the boxes, so hopefully you will be able to preview the document properly now. If the issue persists, please let me know and I will contact technical support.

I drew from 2nd edition D&D, due to the ridiculous number of spells in that edition across the many, many publications. While many of the spells from 3rd and 4th editions found their way to 5th edition, 2nd edition seemed to receive less love. My goal was to remedy that while maintaining the flavor of 5th edition.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
