    Hello, I'm just about finished with the prologue, and my sorcerer is level 2. I leveled her up but I didn't get any new spells. I thought I got new spells every level. do I only get two spells of every spell level for the whole game? I'm really confused.

    I think you've misunderstood my question, I know that I can't cast 2nd level spells yet. My question was that I leveled up to level 2 and I didn't learn any new spells. I thought that at levels two and three I was going to get more first level spells. I wasn't prompted to select more spells and I don't know why.

    Just to keep my response clear I believe you are talking about access to new spells rather than what I refer to as 'slots'.

    New spells would mean that say you start with sleep and shield and a new spell could be magic missile.

    New 'slots' would mean you go from 3 castings of any (of your a available selection) 1st level spells.

    So my answer is on new spells and I believe almost every other level advancement you get new spells. at 4th level you get your 2nd level pick(s) and at 5th you get anther 2nd level pick and another 1st level pick. I can't remember if getting to level 2 you don't get anything but it sounds like it might be true. I doubt your game is bugged. I searched for a table but couldn't find. You might try to find the manual somewhere; yes this game is old enough that games came with paper manuals and someone might have recorded the info online. The only thing to make sure of is that your charisma is 11 or higher to cast 1st level spells but that should be irrelevant to getting new picks and just so you know charisma effects the DC (saving throw of enemy versus their spell) so you want to pump this as high as possible regardless of just getting access to spells (e.g. need 19 charisma for the 9th level spells).

    Thank you for responding. I had figured that might be the case, but I wasn't sure.

    Sorcerers don't learn any new spells at level 2. You learn one new spell of a new spell level every even level except level 2, and one new spell for old spell levels every odd level except level 1.

    Sorcerers are supposed to lag behind a wizard casting-wise, and at character level 2 all wizards get is 1 extra casting of a level 1 spell. Thus, it doesn't make sense for a sorcerer to get an extra casting AND an extra spell.
    You can basically blame whoever came up with the wizard spell progression who decided that wizards didn't get anything special at level 2, since the sorcerer spell progression follows from it.

    The game manuals were included on the CD and installed with the game in my copy of the original without expansions, although I have MotB. Look in the game directory for a folder called "documentation".
    It is also available on Sorcerer's Place .

    According to page 74 of the PDF, you should have gotten one cantrip at level 2 and a first level spell at level 3.
    A copy/paste screws up the formatting, and I'm too lazy to fix it properly.

    It's just a reprint from PHB. As far as I know, spell progression is the same as it is in P&P.
