Heroes III spellbook

The Spellbook is the artifact that records the hero's spells in the Heroes of Might and Magic games.

In Heroes of Might and Magic I, Heroes II, and Heroes III, magic-heroes like Warlocks and Battle Mages start out with spellbooks, while might-heroes like Barbarians and Rangers have to purchase them from a Mage Guild for 500 gold.

In Heroes IV onwards, all heroes start with a spellbook.

Spellbooks cannot be taken, lost, sold, or given to another hero - the hero will always have their spellbook with them. In campaigns, spells will usually carry over from one scenario to the next.
