02-May-2007 - SpellGen 2.0.1 is released. Fixed a bug with previewing spellbooks with domains.
03-January-2007 - Shame on me for never putting this up on the main site, but SpellGen 2.0 beta 2 has been available for a few months now (for those subscribed to the yahoo group). SpellGen 2.0 contains many changes.
02-March-2006 - SpellGen 1.30 released. This fixes a bug rendering spell lists and (hopefully) fixes the database login issue.
Welcome to the homepage for SpellGen, the d20 Spellbook generator. SpellGen
is a windows application designed to create spellbooks and spell lists for
characters in any d20 based game. SpellGen uses XML reference files containing
the required information from various d20 reference books; after entering your
pertinent character information it will 'render' a spell list for your character
including all of his spells. Spells are rendered calculated according to the
character's class, level, ability scores, etc.
SpellGen requires version 1.1 of the
Microsoft Framework. You can either download it from the link or use
My goal in making SpellGen was to make an application that would allow users to create spell lists using large sets of reference books for almost any class. To accomplish this the application enforces a minimal amount of rules; instead it allows you to apply modifiers to almost any condition. For example instead of knowing about the Archmage class, it allows you to adjust the spells per day of a class level by level. This means that as new classes, feats, etc. are published in reference works the application itself does not need to change. You can simply enter the pertinent modifiers applicable to your character.
I am hoping that the application will reach enough critical mass that others will create xml reference files for it, and that the d20 community can make it a self supporting project. The application is only as good as it's data, my hope is that the community will provide to keep the application useful as new references are released.
