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.

Definitely should upgrade to ADVANCED. The entire magic system is now much more cohesive and thought through.
