Long time lurker, first post.
So I am leveling up my human sorcerer in HL and my favored bonus is clearly +1 spell. I've been getting cantrips and now I am level 4 and can get level 1 spells, but when I switch it, it switches all of them (from lvl 1 to 3) to give me extra lvl 1 spells, and so I have excess cantrips. This seems like this is not how this particular bonus should be interpreted, otherwise i could get +20 lvl 8 spells at level 20, and that just seems wrong.
Anybody know what I am doing wrong?
