    Quest Spells

    Leafing through the Priests' Spell Compendium, I noticed that each of the New Gods had a quest spell they could grant, in addition to one universal one. I have to ask - why weren't any of these converted into high-level cleric/druid spells for the BRCS?

    Right, sort of. Quest spells were unique to a single deity - in 3.5 there is no such thing mechanically. Domain spells are the closest thing, but they don't quite fit into that niche.

    Also I believe they more closely followed what would be called epic spells now and we didn not progress into that territory.

    Well, Storm of Vengeance was a Quest spell, as were a few other high-level spells. Then again, the problem is then finding a high-enough level cleric or druid in Cerilia to cast one in the first place!

    I've started turning them into 'normal' spells on the wiki - usually L8 or L9 in 3e terms.

    I did convert some of the quest spells into domain spells I seem to recall. I'll see if I can find the info.

    Hmm, I've found the info. Can you give me the names of the old quest spells and I'll cut and paste it in for you if you want. I don't have everything installed on this computer yet so can't look them up myself.

    Laerme's Emissary is definitely inspired by her 2nd Ed realm spell. Maybe these could be fleshed out some more?
