comment Making magic “magical”
@Superbest It was implied in the OP that magic could be "practiced", hence the assumption that it could be tested in practice.

comment Are PDF Based RPG Sales Hurting the Industry?
@SevenSidedDie Maybe, but if it wasn't profitable, no one would spend their spare time developing it. Just saying.

One would think that the enormous increase in part-time developers would be a big "no" to this question?

comment Making magic “magical”
Coherency and internal consistency implies an internal logic. If there's an internal logic, it can be tested and presumably measured. If it can be measured and tested, it is open for scientific study. While number 1 and 2 are not exactly mutually exclusive, they can create some hard-to-avoid friction.

comment How does a DM correct the balance after accidentally giving the players too much gold?
I shall remember this answer, even though I play DW, a game where wealth has a more narrative effect. Excellent answer!

comment Are clauses in Changeling contracts cumulative?
You only have to buy each dot once, and you must buy them in sequence. That's how "X to Y" dot merits work.

Merits are weird in the special case, where there's an intermediate dot "missing". Example, Striking Looks is either a two-dot or a four-dot. Going from 2 to 4 means you Have to buy both dot 3 and 4. You always have to buy all intermediaries, even if it's because they start higher than 1. Also the reason no one buys common sense. It's 20 Exp!
