comment Can I improve “free” affiliations during character burning?
I don't see the thread talking about affiliations that one buys with resource points, or about improving trait-granted affiliations with resource points. Any source for that?

comment How can I have non-Euclidean dungeons in non-magic settings?
For similar examples, consider the Möbius strip (most simple non-oriented manifold that is otherwise reasonable) or a torus (simple example of a manifold with non-trivial homology).

comment What are the core tropes or assumptions of D&D?
@TimothyAWiseman Consider the role of clerics that sell healing spells, which is fairly common. Or city or dungeon lighted by continual flames.

comment Structure for a political sandbox game
@Sardathrion Yes, but I find it lacks the structure I would like, namely point 1. in the question.

comment Structure for a political sandbox game
-1: I am specifically not looking for a conflict system. Does HotB, Ars magica, etc. have guidelines or procedures for creating political conflicts, for keeping the actions of factions or persons consistent and somewhat predictable, or other such material that provides a framework for the conflicts? Those might be interesting.

comment Can the astrology helping die decrease the chance of success?
Note that the chance of the astrology die taking away a success is only 1/12, not 1/6. Even considering that the example works, assuming that the astrology die can take away no more than 1 success (this is unclear in the rules, at least to my reading). This all supposing I did not make any mistakes.
