Topic: The precedent set by VAM!

Vag is magic's update to the magic system sets up spell descriptions differently than the core book.

Are we going to see miscast tables for all the old spells or do we make them up?

Re: The precedent set by VAM!

Right now, you have to make them up.

However, whenever the new Rules & Magic book is released, I'm pretty sure they will be provided.  Not sure if there are any plans to provide them earlier, or if there will be community involvement (as likely a number of people will be making up their own miscast tables between now and the time of the new rules book release).

If you can get your hands on one of the playtest documents, you can get the new version of "Cure Light Wounds."

I did not realize they were the same as the playtest packet!

Re: The precedent set by VAM!

The main issue I see at the moment is the cleric.

If you simply adapted the M-U, no one would ever pick the cleric again.
Now from what I remember James is not the biggest Cleric fan and I think the cleric spell list will be merged into the magic-users.
From what I know there are individuals who created spell miscast tables on G+, but I dunno if they did that for clerics as well or how they are handling things.
I kinda like the new system, so Im kinda interested in conversions. (although Im wondering whether this reduces interest in the other classes that are currently available)
