House Rules - Duskblade Spell List

The duskblade spell list contained in the Player's Handbook II is quite limited. Some of this limitation is clearly intentional - the duskblade is supposed to be a melee combat oriented spell caster and the spells chosen for the class reflect this. Some of this limitation, on the other hand, seems to be the result of the designers being limited to only use those spells found in the Player's Handbook and the Player's Handbook II when constructing the list. The following list is intended to rectify that issue by adding selected spells that I think "fit" the duskblade class which are found in other resources such as the Spell Compendium.

Overall, my general guide for selecting spells to add to the duskblade spell list has been to add spells that are combat touch spells, spells that create or modify weapons, ray spells, a selection of combat augmentations and defensive spells, and a handful of spells that directly affect combatants. I am also aiming at having a selection of spells from each of the alvari birth schools at each spell level, in order to allow members of those birth schools to be effective as members of the duskblade class. One might note that I have not reached this goal as of yet, which means that this list is a work in progress. I will add more spells as I am able to review other source material.

Spells drawn from sources other than the Player's Handbook and Spell Compendium are marked with a notation by the spells in question. For guidance as to what sourcebooks these notated abbreviations reference, see my key to Sourcebook Abbreviations.
