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 been branching out more in the past few years.

comment How far away can you see light?
Different edition, but related because the light rules are similar: rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/60253/…

comment Can the Minor Conjuration ability gained by Wizards of the School of Conjuration be used to summon rare, expensive, consumable spell components?
I don't think that ability checks would change anything. It's an at-will ability with no real cost outside of some combat action economy considerations, so ability checks would just slow down play for no real benefit. I don't think that giving suggestions for how to limit abuse of this feature other than "don't allow material components" would make the answer better.

comment What system is most suited for my Harry Potter game?
I'm accepting this answer because it's the system that I ended up using. While the homebrews that you link all have baggage that make them unsuitable for my purposes, the system in general does everything that I want, while being a lot easier for me to grok than a game like Fate.

comment Does Muleback Cords' effect apply to something/one slung over my shoulder?
One thing is unclear to me here: Did your GM disagree because you were carrying him over your shoulder, and that doesn't count as 'carrying' to your GM, or did your GM disagree because a person doesn't count as "equipment or material"?
