What's the difference between the various versions? Little changed between first and second editions: the second edition mainly reorganized the old material and added quite a bit more. From second to third edition, the world timeline advanced 20 years, a number of races and places went through name changes, and the magic system was greatly overhauled. Second edition had a fairly simple magic system with only 13 basic spells; third edition went to a spell college system with almost 200 basic spells.
