    It seems that Druids are able to wield the Long Spear, whereas Long Spear is not included in the Druid weapon proficiencies.

    Confirmed. Another left-over from the 3.0 rules. The 3.0 SRD says:
    Where's my half-spear when I need it???

    I was running through Co8 and I added xps to get to level 17 since for some reason I haven't gotten there and I wanted to see what was in level 9 wizard spells. I then found out that there were two dominate person spells. The only difference between the two was the description of the spells. Is this supposed to happen? I am using Co8 8.1.0 with Rudy's mods.

    I assume you mean two dominate monster scrolls? Were you able to buy a dominate monster scroll in Verbobonc? I thought this scroll had been removed by 8.1.0. While this scroll was present you could have 2 dominate monster spells on your list. I have checked my Temple of Elemental Evil\data\rules\spells\466 Suggestion.txt file which is the offending spell behind the dominate monster scroll and it is no longer assigned as a wizard spell. Have you ever played a bard in pure Atari ToEE? No on kicked sand in the face of a 4th level bard in unmodded ToEE.

    Ummm?

    One is the actual Dominate Person spell (141) the other is a re-tagged Suggestion spell (466). We were never too sure what to do with Suggestion since it is very much an RP thing (a lot like Charm Person which is outrageously OP in ToEE compared to what it should be) and in the end it was decidedjust to make it a Dominate-style spell. No real reason to have both. Plus there was the time a Dominate spell was added for testing purposes - it's a sordid past we have here.

    Pygmy, I do get the scroll in Verbobonc and scribe it. I just finally forced my way to level 17 for some reasons and noticed that if you level up, you get 2 dominate monster spells. The only thing I noticed was the descriptions of the spells and that didn't make sense.

    Shiningted, thanks for the explanation. The question I would have now would be would having two spells like that cause the game to crash?

    It just looked weird when I saw it and had to mention it.

    RE: Charm Person, would it be possible to make a new faction for 'Charmed', and make successful Charm Person spells end any combat with the target and assign the 'Charmed' faction to the target, and add a +100 variable to the 'Charmed' faction for the duration of the spell?

    I mean it seems possible to me, it's closer to how Charm Person is supposed to work, and doesn't compel targets to fight for you.
