OGL Spells, 1st and 2nd

It has been a long time coming, but here are the 1st-level and 2nd-level OGL compliant spells I have created. As before, these spells are meant to supplement the existing OGL spell list, and are not balanced to work with additional, proprietary, or other supplemental spell lists. While I believe the power-level is appropriate, all…

Zarovich v. Pixies: A Case Study
