I'm a game designer that's been playing tabletop games since the early '00s. Most of my experience is with the D&D 3/3.5/Pathfinder ruleset, but I've bee branching out more in the past few years.

I had to read that several times before I got it, but are you saying that a "nomothetic" person relies on specified rules, where an "ideographic" person relies more on what makes sense in the narrative? Would it be possible to explain that in a less dense form? The quote from your whitepaper is a bit hard to grok.

comment How to prolong a spell in absence?
If you really do need Charm Monster specifically, could you tell us what level you are, what kind of resources you're willing to spend, and how long, exactly, you need the spell to last? If you're going to come back every 3 weeks guaranteed, then it's an easier problem than if we have to account for several month long absences.

comment How to prolong a spell in absence?
You might get more useful answers if you asked about your specific problem, rather than your solution. It sounds like your problem is that you need someone loyal to guard your stuff for an arbitrary period of time, not that you specifically need Charm Monster to do it. If we came up with a way for a loyal ally to guard your stuff for a while that didn't use Charm Monster, would that be an acceptable answer? If so, you might want to alter your question.

comment When wielding a two-handed weapon in one hand, how much benefit does Power Attack confer?
-1: You ignore the contradiction between the dev posts. The 'lance' post says "such as a lance", which says that they're asking the question about other cases like this other than the lance. If you were to expand the part of your answer where you say that the lance question only referred to lances, I'd remove the downvote.

Yeesh. That's a really crappy way to spend 10K, then.
