The Return of Spell-50
« on: December 30, 2023, 09:20:37 AM »
    From Wes: Quite a few priest, druid and mage spells are extended (linearly) in all respects up to 50th level. For example, a 50th level mage casting Fireball does 50d6 damage (save for half). A 50th level mage casting Blur gains the blur benefits for 150 rounds. Note that this applies to you and to your enemies.

    From Cam: This is not meant to be a balanced mod and, while you may eat a 30d6 Fireball once in a while, for the most part it's going to make the game substantially easier by buffing your spellcasters. It's meant to be fun, even if it can be a bit silly.

    This mod has been recoded from the bottom up and quite a few improvements have been made along the way, notably, that it covers many more spells than before; that it now covers the original Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate games, BGEE, BG2EE, IWDEE, BGT, Tutu, and BGT; that any level cap from 1 to 50 can be selected; that it does so without overwriting the old spells; and that it also updates game text and spell descriptions.
