-If you find this spreadsheet valuable, I hope you'll visit Applesorcerer.com, where I've started publishing content for the DM's Guild and DriveThruRPG.-Items in orange and italic are suggested prices; e.g., what a player might pay at a magical supplies store. These are a little subjective.
-Items with no marked price ("-") must be harvested by the caster or acquired via special means.
-Items in normal black are the minimum value of the material that the spell requires in order to be successful!
-You seem like a person who likes materials. I have a whole podcast exploring the incredible true stories behind the materials we work with outside the realm of fantasy! I'd appreciate it if you visit episodictable.com to give it a listen.---1-If you have any suggestions, feel free to add a note directly to this spreadsheet! I'm interested in keeping this an up-to-date and useful resource for fellow DMs. Thanks!

2019-02-24: Added "Spells by Class" and a few other options under Data > Filter Views again. Please let me know if you spot any errors!
