comment What point-buy systems of magic (like psionics in 3e D&D) are there?
I would contend that it isn't hard to create an on-the-fly system. It's hard to balance it, usually. Ars Magica has an amazing off the cuff spellcasting system. It just gets really broken when you start mixing and matching modifiers (at least in the 3rd Ed stuff I am most familiar with). It might help you with some inspiration, though. Good luck with your endeavor... I think it might be outside the scope of possible, however. More power if you make it work, though :D

comment How do I promote my gaming campaigns?
I think it would be helpful to have the sites in question available in the text, simply because promotion may depend on where the games are being run from.

comment How do I deal with PCs who use kidnap and torture as an investigative technique?
One thing to add to this: Not only will the torutred say anything to get out of the torture, they are almost certain to say what they THINK you want to hear. You're going to get a lot of willfully false information. If you strap ANYONE who's not trained to deal with torutre to a chair, and ask them if they are the Compte de Saint Germaine, there's a near certainty they'll say yes eventually.
