Default GCA Grimoire character Sheet

Is their a GCA Grimoire character sheet that adjusts for spell levels and calculates cast time reduction and cost reduction?

No, for two reasons. First, the necessary code just isn't there. Second, even if it were, any spell with a variable time to cast or casting cost - whether it's a fireball, an area spell, a buff spell, summon elemental, or whatever - has the casting cost reduction and casting time reduction calculated after you have calculated the final casting time and casting cost given the variables you choose when casting the spell. This means that half the spells would need to be calculated anyways, and it would be even more confusing to have some spells with a time or cost reduction pre-calculated and half the spells with the time and cost reduction not pre-calculated.

Ok thanks. I am still very new to GURPS and I do not know Magic that well yet. I have been using a spreadsheet to make those calculations and that works fine, just a bit of work is all. Also I must be doing something wrong because I thought most of these adjustments where done before you cast the spell, with perhaps the exception of the cost.
So I will continue on and use my spreadsheet.
Thanks again for helping me out.
