add-on for classes database: ILLUSIONIST

This add-on is to add the 1e illusionist to default DC (or to your own design if you like).
This is the most complex one yet: nearly all of the databases will need to be added to. and just like with UNDERWATER add-on, this is not a stand-alone add-on.

will provide complete instructions when databases added

This is very nearly done already.
Question: When 7th level spells are usable, should we give the illusionist all of the level 1 magic user spells? The rules say to give 4 and then 1 per level afterwards. Does anyone have insight into whether this is in  addition to the normal spells?

My first character was Illusionist, and I got him up to level 4 :) but those questions are way beyond me sorry ;) I will try to search for answer tomorrow, was listening to this, and got some nice spaceships 3d models that I hope I will try this weekend, after that probably will need to work outside more seriously :) I still can't believe 1e is holding good :) thanks for the updates, what I am looking for is 2e FR specialists for my mods. I hope it will happen and I wish I could help with that.

Thank You, that is what I was thinking about. Now I need to go to town and then I will look trought it hopefuly in the evening. I really want to make those things work in DC, especialy FR specialty priests from Faiths and Avatars, and other 2 books but also other specialists. I think for me adventuring with DC would be much more interesting.

I guess that the 1st-level magic-user spells were in addition to illusionist spells.  The way I remember it, is that the magical languages for magic-users and illusionists were different (thus the different read magic spells).  I guess that after mastering illusionist magic, illusionists were able to start understanding beginner-level magic-user spells (although there isn't much point in memorizing 1st-level magic-user spells at that point, except for some utilitarian spells perhaps...)

Doing the magic user spells in addition to illusionist spells is the easiest way to script this. :D

Should there be a spell progression for this? Obviously only level 1, but gaining the ability to cast more than one of them as they progress in levels...

Also, when able to cast that first magic user spell, what should the cast level be? Should it be level 1 representing the magic user ability, or should it be 13 or 14, representing the illusionist ability?

I think this but he is casting it like wizard of the same level:

 or should it be 13 or 14, representing the illusionist ability?

(edit: though I am not sure about number of spells available to memorize, if those are addition to number that are available then probably those bonus spells should be Lv1 casting power)

This is just my logic, and I am sorry that I can't be of more help atm, summer work is starting sooner that I expected and I also got some work on filming our church celebration of Holy Trinity, if I finish it soon I will upload and post it in the inspiration thread just for people to be able to see how it look like :))

I need spell graphics for this project!
I made one for Color Spray, and that along with a generic illusionist cast and missile image is all that I have.

If you want to help, let me know and I will share with you a list of spells and their descriptions.

Yes I want to help desperately :) and I would like to make that adventure for DC. It is from Dungeon Magazine and it is called Barque without a bark, You can't be serious.

But right now I am in chaos, and I need to work out trough summer good just to be able to make things happen again. But after summer I will try to do as much as I can and this time seriously ;)

Ok now looking at it, real name of that adventure is Old Sea Dog, it is from Dungeon 23 p32. I will have to make a list of adventures I have played and would like to make for DC. My current DC module is my try to expand this adventure and well there is a port but it is also a space port too.

Now to add that to my 5 year plan of playing FRUA all mods, my priority is making my books in english. My estimate is 2 years to do it. Here is the pdf version just for info and it has been 10 years already since they have been published, and beside Ad&d I want to play it too :), my site went down btw long ago but 100mb was not very good lol to work with  http://klubzmaj.org/download/srp.pdf

Anyway what I also am doing is church site which went down this year because they dont like to pay 20e for the ukeep so what is left is this channel and I have uploaded latest vid here but will need to do a text in english of bible reading just for everyone to understand  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1mrsoJigy14

Now what waits for me is beach battle :) and what it is... I wish I could make it like DC mod lol probably impossible alone but would be nice to try if I had time. Anyway there are 3 beaches beside me:

1. waterpolo club that doesn't pay any rent to the state because they are in deal with police, goverment and are somehow smuggling it like Waterpolo club that needs to be financed from beach, but in reality they probably smuggle some weeds (or at least workers) and they don't train in club for 10+ years just do one match per summer with some foreign players from better clubs. My family was thinking about running waterpolo pool on my beach that actualy might happen.
2. oldest and main beach they pay 200e state rent and they are family of diplomat, most of the time ok they own caffe that is most famous of the 3 that are working on the beaches (that is all becahes exept mine, cost for that is 1300e just rent to the beach, I am not sure how others are dealing with that but most probably they don't do it at all)
3. me, I am trying to do my best and make things work and everyone to be happy. My rent 500e, but costs are double, now it is a hard job and fails are deadly. Just example of guy who was in debts with a beach near, he shot leading mafioso in town who was asking for his money and later was eliminated by police who probably was on their side)
4. ex cop (fired because of smuggling probably) mostly works there and they started at the same time as me, though that guy who started and whom we offered to work for us lasted only a year and he got in debt and those guys took over (there is one more small officer from Bosnia) and are working there for 4 years and run beach and caffe without paying anything and are lowering my prices often giving everything for free. But as things goes here they can pull a gun and shot someone who is not doing good so I am just trying to stay away.

Well that is it, I really need to make things pay off this summer and make things better for next summer hopefuly. This is btw my new site that my dad worked out (not the best, but at least he is trying unlike most of the people here who are not very smart, but I think I will need to take things into my hands and try to make it better) http://gdenamore.hercegnovizelenika.com/en/montenegro/zelenika/mirjana-smestaj-o3203.html this is old version btw http://hercegnovizelenika.com/

:) I might talked a bit more then I should but well that is what is going on. I am really interested in making DC mods, I have stopped my GH online campaign because of it, and beside people who are waiting for me there I also have my old RPG table top group 10-20 people) that can all understand english and probably would be interested in playing it but themselves are lazy to do anything on their own except very few that are into it but already have family and need to work.

So first my books then DC and FRUA. Hoping that I will learn to make things better and be able to help with anything that is needed. I was thinking about starting my own Vlog :) it might be good lol

Well, I kind of promised Milos to do some more nature/cave wall art, but from the long post above I conclude that these are not very very urgently needed...

Spells are quite easy to do compared to walls, so please tell what is needed... :)

I need this to be done for the Pantheons add-on, so I will finish up the databases and stop worrying about the art getting done. I hope to fnish this in the next week or so.
