I dislike the way spells are acquired in the game. Especially for starting warbands, getting an awful spell will really ruin your day. I thought why not just only choose your first spell, and after some searching on the forum I found many people use this house rule.
I decided to take it one step further. When a wizard/priest acquires a new spell/prayer (including the starting one), pick three spells from the list. Assign each spell to two numbers on 1D6, then roll to see what spell you get.
Example, you have a spell list of 6 spells: A B C D E F
I choose A, C, F
1-2 = A
3-4 = C
5-6 = F
You now have a 1/3 chance to get the spell you want, instead of 1/6. You do this every time you gain a spell. The rules for getting a spell you already know don't change, it's difficulty will still decrease. However, so it doesn't get too easy to cast, a spell can not be reduced by more than 2 difficulty points.
What do you guys think? I haven't tested this out in a campaign yet, but will it make spellcasting too strong? Anyone already try this?
