OSR Spell Survey

The goal of this survey is to provide feedback to the OSR (Old School Renaissance) and RPG community on what Level 1-3 spells are considered most useful. The results can then be used to create shorter spell lists and player aids - or to inspire custom spell lists for other designs.
Spell descriptions take the form of “Name [120', 2] Effect” showing “[range in feet, duration in turns]” before the magical effect. Spell descriptions © Zenopus Archives, Used by permission.
For each of the six groups of spells, please rank at least the top three spells for play, from most useful to least useful. The spells are presented in random order to minimize order bias (the likelihood of spells listed first being given a better ranking).
Every question is optional; click Next if you want to skip a question.
