comment Are there any RPGs/settings where a character's class is not chosen but “earned” through their actions?
WFRP 3E does something similar. While you can swap out to any career, it costs less to do so based on how many traits they have in common and if you've fully completed your last one.

comment I want to design and write a setting book. Where do I start?
It's a shame that the questioner isn't actually after the design aspects. Aramis' answer has lots of important points for creating a good book.

comment Should I take Polearm Gamble or Repel Charge at level 11?
I've seen a reference to Polearm Gamble being errated to not affect shifts. Damned if I can find what they were actually talking about in that errata document though.

comment What is thaumaturgy?
I suggest that you change the question to better fit what you seem to want to know which is "What do I call magic that is done by creating mechanical devices?". You can then go into more detail on how your setting works (which we need to give you a useful answer) and also ask for the clarification on what thaumaturgy means.

Folded in comment about magic through technology just being science.

comment Creating the setting with the players
If Sir X of Y is a named character that the characters care about, there should already be enough detail to make that call. Any words like callous, massacre, unrepentant are good synonyms for evil. Of course if there are problems with player knowledge bleeding into character knowledge, then this method won't work well. But as I say, that's not the case for all groups and probably not for the questioners group.

comment Creating the setting with the players
I notice the assumption that the player will be hostile over these small details and that the GM wouldn't ask the original creator of the idea for details. That is an issue for some groups, but not all. A new question that asks how to avoid this kind of conflict might be good to add.
