For or against the removal of unique stuff in favour of time and speed? less measuring in your wargame, less looking at the book despite doing that so you know your litinies etc.

Magic System Pet Peeves

No.79111759 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
What are your most common concerns or complaints regarding the magic systems that you see in TTRPGs and/or other fantasy media, and what would you change about said magic systems if you had the chance? What would you like to see more of?

For example, I personally tend to dislike settings where the magic system is 100% genetic in regards to who can use it or not. I mean, if that were the case, wouldn't everyone and their mother try to get magical blood into their family lineages, particularly the nobility equivalent of the setting? Not to mention how that would have even come about, or why it would only show up in humans (or other humanoids) and not animals either. But Mistborn actually handles it well, with the nobility having gotten the power of Allomancy originally as a gift from their immortal king, and do their best to keep the bloodlines from mixing with the lower castes. Not that they were very successful, as the power has diluted enough that the titular Mistborn are almost mythically rare, and “Mistings”, who can only use one power in contrast to all of them like the Mistborn can, are much more common.

We will use Chinaman fakes. There's nothing WoTC can do about it if enough people do it. We need to send a message; if WoTC isn't willing to budge on the RL, that's fine, who cares. We'll just normalize the use of proxies in sanctioned events. If enough of us get on board, WoTC can't do shit.

Mad Science

No.79190626 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
There was a time back in the day when to the common man and popular media science was basically magic. "Scientists" were unhinged lunatics experimenting with that which man was not meant to know, one spilled vial or insane experiment away from destroying the world as we know it through their delusional pursuit of knowledge for its own amoral sake.

Now, you might argue some people see it like that today, but for the most part people acknowledge science and the scientific method as normal and not alchemy and witchcraft with extra steps. There's a lot less maniacal cackling and misshapen abominations than the men of that age conceived of. In short, its actually way more boring. But mad science, that cultural conception of it which existed during the beginnings of the modern age, is a really fascinating concept to explore and use in games for me. I have science and wizardry function more like a spectrum. The difference between a witch brewing potions and a scientist using a centrifuge are blurry at best. Even mundane things born of seemingly rational thought are suspect. What is an arrow? A rod of tree flesh, given feathers of a bird and a beak of stone? That's a homunculus if you ask me.
