*Staff of the Magi is now an artifact so replaced with a Staff of Power.

Bargle also has more spells in his spellbook than he should for his level. This is due to the acquisition of spells from the tomes of dead adventurers, rivals, etc.

I've given him fairly generic spells from the SRD based upon what he had in 2ed. Obviously you are liberty to change the spells for your campaign and collection of books - Libris Mortis and Book of Vile Darkness are worth a look.
