Could someone describe the changes to the magic system and spell list for the Advanced version? I am trying to decide if I should upgrade from the the basic SOBH.
Thank you in advance!
The magic system is essentially a subsection of special abilities. A figure takes the spell caster ability and then gains access to a list of spells, each with their own effect. The effects are pretty interesting and varied. There are several wall spells that basically create a small piece of terrain with some effect. Those can be fun to play with.
The mechanics of casting a spell are basically the same.
The spells have keywords which let you know if they have variable ranges, are resisted, effect an area, summoned, etc.
As for adding spells to characters, you could visit the Warband calculator: http://www.ganeshagames.net/army_builders/ASOBHbuilder.html.
Here is the list of the core ASOBH spells:
Aura of Terror
Protection from Arrows
Turn to Stone
Wall of Bedazzlement
Wall of Bones
Wall of Fear
Wall of Fire
Wall of Ice
Wall of Water
Wall of Wood

Definitely should upgrade to ADVANCED. The entire magic system is now much more cohesive and thought through.
Thank you all for the comments. It looks like the magic system definitely received some much needed attention.
