So can we get a list of what all 24 spellbooks are called, not their descriptions, don't want to spoil that, but would sure like to know what these spellbooks are called for the base game.

In general, the names of the abilities and spellbooks make sense in game terms when you're playing. But, as the OP requested, no descriptions! I'll post each faction separately

Yellow Sign has:

Spellbooks:
Shriek of the Byakhee (for Byakhee)
The Third Eye (for King in Yellow)
The Screaming Dead (for King in Yellow/undead)
He Who is Not to Be Named (for H*****)
Zin gaya (easter egg reference - not technically a Lovecraftian thing) (for Undead)
Passion (for Cultists)
Faction unique ability:
Feast
King in Yellow unique ability:
Desecrate
Ha**** unique ability:
Vengeance

Nice, can't wait for the rest. Also I notice you did not fully spell that which is not to be named. That was a safe thing to do.

I've edited the previous two and included in this one to show which units the spellbooks/abilities are for or involved with (if any). Basically, a basic principle of CW is that each type of unit of each faction has at least one spellbook which is somehow related to it. Also, each GOO also has a unique ability without you having to get a spellbook - although there are sometimes additional spellbooks which are related to GOOs too. Then, there are spellbooks or faction abilities which are more general and not tied to specific units.

Black Goat faction has:

Spellbooks:
Necrophagy (ghouls)
Ghroth (Migo)
The Red Sign (dark young)
Blood Sacrifice (cultists)
Frenzy (cultists)
Thousand Young

faction ability:
Fertility Cult

Shub-Niggurath unique ability:

Pardon the unfathomable depth of my ignorance here, but is there a place where I can find the wording of what each of these bad boys are supposed to DO? I've never seen a full text list, only snippets here and there.

One of the articles has all the Cthulhu books, and the factions strategy threads give a broad idea of their usefulness. But you can't expect them to give away all the game's secrets before it's released, can you?

actually we have now sort of given away these secrets in the form of eight game videos in which I explain pretty much how they work, and my son Grant gives some possible strategies to use each faction.

You are not looking in the right places. Believe it or not Wiki doesn't have all the answers. Try your local zoo if you are lucky enough.

Heya, is the text of the spellbooks and on the factions cards final? And if so, is it possible to get it somewhere?
I am now eagerly waiting for my game to arrive and I want to start on the german translation as not all of the people from my gamegroup are very good in english.

Edit: Just found the factions cards here, only needing the spellbooks now.

You can get the text of the spellbooks from the faction description videos on the kickstarter page. And nothing is final until they ship it.
