Burning the Midnight Oil with Spell Casting Charts

If I'm going with one XP chart (which I like more by the second as I keep going over it), I probably want a unified spell casting chart as well. Clerics and magic users would have one chart, while secondary casters (elves only in the core rules, although possibly other classes in expansion materials down the road) have a different progression, and dabblers (other classes who pick up spell-casting subclasses - I'm thinking here of bards and the like) have a different one. This way, instead of having to piece out the progression for each class each time, I just indicate which type of caster this class is, and the type or types of spells available, and I'm good to go...

- Primary casters include magic users and clerics.
- Secondary casters include elves.

- Dabblers include characters who take casting as part of a subclass (for example, the bard). Dabblers do not have access to spells at level 1.
