I made this very long, because I did not have the leisure to make it shorter.
Well, granted that the prime directive for the Book of Spells, 2nd Edition is "maximal brevity", even though I've been promising a release today (Monday, Dec-1), I am going to be taking some damn time to make it even shorter. And hopefully better. More specifically: I had some really wonderful and detailed comments and suggestions from reviewers for improvements, and I fell behind on reading, defending, and acting on them (entirely my own fault over the Thanksgiving weekend). So I'll be taking another few days to make sure it's as polished as I can make it with everyone's help. Hopefully later this week? Thanks for your patience!
