The Grimoire changes many of the standard Neverwinter Nights domains either to make them conform more closely to Dungeons & Dragons rules, or adds new spells from other sources that fit with the overall theme of the domain. New spells added to domains usually are added at levels where the spell the domain normally receives could not be implemented.

Also, the Grimoire provides an optional cleric domain spell memorization enforcement feature, which requires a cleric to memorize at least one domain spell per level, or the character will be unable to cast a spell until the situation is fixed.

Other rules changesEdit

  • Paladins and rangers have their caster level equal to half their class level, per rule in Player's Handbook.
  • The wearing of medium or heavier armor, or the carrying of a medium or greater weight load, will now negate the use of the evasion and improved evasion feats.
  • Spells and spell lists have been converted to be as close as possible to the 3.5 Dungeons & Dragons rules.
