Default Re: Should all spells be equally easy to learn?

Naturally, for non-Wizard types, the cost would still be three times as high (i.e., 240 XP for that level 8 Spell, and 600 XP for that level 20 Spell).
Hi JLV, everyone.
I rather like this. It feels proper to me that high IQ spells would take more effort to learn than the easy ones. Your second paragraph also suggests a reason why non-wizards would tend to pick up the lower IQ spells. The tripled experience (XP) cost is significant.

Warm regards, Rick.
