Honestly I’m kind of upset, but I knew this was going to happen. But I kind of want to turn that energy into learning how to mod this game. Might as well fully embrace it, and perhaps later we can set up a seminar to teach the community how the engine actually works.
I applaud your optimism. Modding to rectify serious deficiencies like "any class can learn any spell" may be the thing that saves this game for a great many people who would have otherwise tossed it into the trash heap (just as I did with DOS2 after a few hours of trying it out).
