Converting D&D Spells: Part 2

As a follow-up to my earlier post about converting D&D spells, I thought it would be interesting to see if the conversion process could be automated.

The resulting tool is available here: D&D 3.5 Spell Conversion

Sadly it didn't work too well. Although it's usually possible to convert things like range and duration, most of the spell comes from its description, which is very difficult to parse reliably.

Still, it might be enough to give someone a head start, so I decided to make the tool available to the public rather than just delete it.
