Named Wizard Spells (Circle/Citadel of Eight) in 5e

There are many Dungeons & Dragons wizard spells in 5th Edition. Most of them were ported over from edition to edition but some were lost. Others lost the creators name and others got simplified and merged (e.g. Bigby’s hand spells).

I like to present to you a list of named spells from the World of Greyhawk in 2nd Edition. We start with the spells of members of the Citadel or Circle of Eight. So let’s see which spells were not ported to 5e and in further episodes create every spell for 5th Edition.


Bold spells are already converted into 5th Edition.

Next week we are going to look at Bigby’s spell list and convert his spells to 5e.

See you in the Green Dragon Inn,
