You guys all realize the grimoire is the actual problem with this project, right? If we could crack that nut, the rest would be trivially easy to accomplish by comparison.
Pat, I know you guys have your new double secret freelancer tackling this. But what about the idea of crowd sourcing those spells that are troubling you. I'm sure there are several people here who could come up with ideas that might make that easier. Maybe a restricted forum area just for the pre-order people and post the problem spells either just a name or name and a description. See what we come up with. maybe that would be enough to get you guys through that nut.
