On page 803 in the Priest's Spell Compendium Volume 3 listed under Elven deity Erevan Ilesere there's a spell called Faerie Form which is supposed to be 7th level.

When I went to the "F" section in the book, which begins on page 257 in the Priest's Spell Compendium Volume 1, the spell wasn't there. The section begins with Faerie Fire then Faerie Flames - Elf but moves into Faith Armor instead of Faerie Form. The spell is not listed in the index on page 818 in the Priest's Spell Compendium Volume 3 either.

Sylvan Form exists in the compendium but it is a 4th level spell as to where Faerie Form is clearly a 7th level spell. Monster Mythology where the Elven deities are described doesn't seem to contain the spell either.

So, where are the details for this spell? Which book is it located in?

The spell faerie form appears in Demihuman Deities on page 111. It has a casting time of 1 round, a duration of 1 hour/level, and is like the spell shapechange except that only faerie forms can be assumed.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Notably, in the DD spell index it’s listed before the “fa…” section, possibly because the digraph æ comes before a in English dictionary order, and is the only entry starting with . (I wonder if this lead to it being overlooked when the PSC was being assembled.) \$\endgroup\$ Jul 19, 2018 at 6:10

    \$\begingroup\$ @SevenSidedDie I'm pretty sure due diligence was done. The faerie form spell's not in the main text nor the index of the Compendium in F at all, digraph or no digraph. \$\endgroup\$ Jul 19, 2018 at 6:19
  • \$\begingroup\$ Ah, that’s unfortunate. It’s a shame when errors show up in works that will never get a corrected printing. \$\endgroup\$ Jul 19, 2018 at 6:21
