D&D Spell Book, Need Volunteers

I'm looking for volunteers to help proof-read a very large D&D related document. It's a book of ALL THE SPELLS from all 3.0 & 3.5 source books. I did not do most of the legwork, the thanks goes to Captnq who gathered all the spells, and posted the file to the MinMax Boards. I've done a significant amount of editing though.

- Removed Captnq’s commentary regarding spell usefulness (opinions)
- Removed spell synergy, wand/potion/oil/scroll/permanency costs
- Removed spell flavor text to save space
- Reformated font face & size, paper sizing, margins, columns, etc. for printing as “mini” book
- Added missing spells: Lower Spell Resistance, No Light, Undead Eyes

I've already printed this once, and then promptly found several errors, despite copious proofreading by both Buu and myself. I've gone through and done a bunch more editing, so I really want to make sure it's right this time, before I print it again.

Two main things to look for:

1. Make sure there are no spell names that are hanging alone at the bottom of a page. For the left column on each page, I wanted at least 4 lines of text at the bottom. 3 or fewer got bumped to the next column. For the right column, 6 lines of text are okay, anything under 6 got bumped to the next page. But really I just want it to look nice and flow well.

2. Make sure all spells have a space between them. Because of all the column swapping, there are some spells that might be right up against each other.

Examples of both errors here:


It's a 723 page PDF, so it's a lot to look through. But I would really appreciate several more sets of eyes on it, before I go through another 200+ pieces of paper. (& cutting & hole-punching, etc.)

PDF file is here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BztOLfafvOvaQmVkSHBwUmtJVDA

And thank you very much to anyone willing to help!!

Edit: Errors found so far-
No space between Call Lightning and Call Lightning Storm
No space between Chain Contingency and Chain Dispel

Let me see if I can get my boyfriend on this. Sounds right up his alley... so long as I can tear him away from Skyrim for a while.

Thank you very much! I will be updating the post as I find errors myself, and then I'll eventually upload a fully corrected (hopefully!) final file.

I'll see if I can get through it soon. Hell, I'll just enjoy having a copy of the doc. ;)
