comment Living forever in D&D (via spells)?
Typical medieval taxes were only 10% each to church and lord. It was the rents that were 50-70%... and commoners rented from their lieges historically...

@neontapir I decided to obliquely mention that there are more Dr. Who games.

comment Are there good game mechanics/systems for a timetravel-heavy game/character?
I've never seen a copy, @neontapir ... so I can't add it to my answer, per the rules here. All the ones I've mentioned I have at least read, and all the generics I have mentioned I've played and GM'd. Experience with a given game is a prerequisite for answers in recommendation questions. As a further aside, I'm not a whovian. I have read the C7 Dr Who... but won't play/run it. I was reading it for system comparisons.

comment How does D&D Vancian magic make sense in-game?
Rolled back because I do not consider 5E to be best visualized by the Willingham version - it's not the same as pre-4E, nor as 4E.
