A later printing, the mislabeled page numbers for Sight Amplification, Sleeper's Spell, and Sonic Spell in the alphabetical list of spells at the back of the book have been corrected. An acknowledgement has also been added to the inside cover which reads:

"Some of the material within this book is inspired by and based upon material from 'Arduin Trilogy' and other works by David A. Hargrave."

Twenty-one names now grace the mages' list in the introduction.

I have a question about the earlier printing of this. Is the "Some of the material within this book is inspired by and based upon material from 'Arduin Trilogy' and other works by David A. Hargrave." acknowledgement present at all on the inside cover?

I have a copy which matches the earlier printing but the acknowledgement has been stamped into the book (by a rubber stamp I think). My later version has the acknowledgement printed in the book.

Here's a scan of the stamped acknowledgement:

My guess would be that the version on the top was released, they got some static, and then stamped the acknowledgment inside the front cover.
