[Dresden Files RPG] Spellcasting Spreadsheet -- Test it for me!

Hey Folks,

I'm running a Dresden Files RPG FAE game for some friends and they're all playing White Council Wardens. Since the magic system is complex, I've come up with a spellcasting spreadsheet that I've put up on Google Drive in a zip file. If you play Dresden Files RPG, I'd appreciate a look-see and any comments you may have.

The zipped file is on Google Drive and it contains an .xls file (Excel 1997-2004).

I've set up two sheets, one for Evocation and another for Thaumaturgy (another two sheets are list info). Since both need Lore, Discipline and Conviction scores, the info on Evocation is ported directly to Thaumaturgy. The file includes room for Focus Items, the range of Elements and Specialties, and Bonuses. I also included space for the Refinement Power. The final thing I put in was page references for the Dresden Files RPG Volume One: Your Story book.

Any questions, comments or ideas for changes, let me know.

/Matt

I can view it on Google but it won't let me download it to play with adding information to it. Any ideas?

EDIT: Got it. Let me play now.

The spreadsheet is very bare-bones with drop-down menu choices that hopefully will allow players to build a spell from the technical side while leaving the descriptive side to them.

What's going on in your game of wardens? What things seem to work well for the players or GM? What doesn't work so well?

Only had 1 session so far and I am not a big fan of fate and fairly dislike fate dresden rules but the 1st session went well, critas could tell people about the game betetr then I but I can see balancing the fights for the team will likely be a challenge wizards can dish out a lot.
Thematically each player has tried to specialize a bit to make the characters a little diffrent, in hindsite I might have decided to go with some other supernatural type in order to shake it up a bit but I think that 5 wizards will still work out ok.
We are not playing next week but in 2 weeks I should have a bit more of an idea.

I'm going to add another "focus item used" field for each Evocation (for one focus item using Power and another using Control) and Thaumaturgy (for one focus item using Complexity and another using Control). I'll also be making some other changes.
