I've just made the final tweaks to the text and layout, and have written the introductions for both books. (Writing introductions is always the last thing I do.) Later today, I'll be sending out pre-release PDFs of both books to the wonderful proofreaders who have gallantly offered to pore over these 104 pages of delicious Advanced material. (As so many people offered to proofread these books, I won't be sending them out to everyone. I'll select a group of 10 or so people to do the honours.)
Another thing I just did was to regenerate the indexes in the two books. I thought it'd be fun to share the index of spells, which now shows the final list of spells contained in Advanced Fantasy: Druid and Illusionist Spells.

- The book contains a total of 106 spells. 34 druid spells and 72 illusionist spells.
- 19 of the spells have already appeared in Classic Fantasy: Cleric and Magic-User Spells. That means that this book contains 87 new B/X spells.
- Many of the new spells were adapted from Unearthed Arcana, and have not appeared in a B/X clone before (to my knowledge).
- A few illusionist spells (I forget how many exactly) were also adapted from AD&D 2e.
- 4 illusionist spells (blacklight, dream quest, through the looking glass, visitation) are completely new creations of my own.
