comment Save against a spell thought to be harmless
@mxyzplk Yes, if you go for this interpretation of the RAW once, it's only fair if you stick with it, and get to wait to see if you roll good. Afaik the witch's healing hex works like a Cure Light Wounds spell, so imo resisting would only halve the gained hit points, ie. you'd benefit from the hex, and not be allowed a retry. I don't see the legion you're talking about - but even if there are some, consequent application would balance things out in the long run. (Also, no game system is perfect, and no system's been documented perfectly. Otherwise we'd have way fewer questions around here. ;))

comment How to convey the tone of Shadowrun
@ErikSchmidt Thanks for the quick reply! Yep, I mostly see and understand the role and importance of ersatz products in cyberpunk literature. I just thought that 1) Shadowrun is not our classic run-of-the-mill cyberpunk because of all the magic and magically rejuvenated nature in the setting, 2) soy has a nice "cheap" ring to it indeed, yet nowadays "lab grown" and "cultured" (as in "cultured beef") seems... more... likely? :)

@GMJoe Thanks! You're right - and I'll have to brush up on my physics, I'm afraid. :)

comment What is a crystalline creature?
You're welcome. :) First of all, I'd definitely wait for other answers (I suppose you'll get some), see what they say. As for the usefulness of shatter and the like: against creatures of the core, you seem to be right. However, you could always spice up your setting with crystalline objects and environments where such spells could provide serious tactical advantage: think cathedrals and courtrooms with huge windows, crystal caves, pre-deployed explosives in glass containers, chandeliers, bespectacled (love this word) opponents who go half-blind without their glasses on and so on... ;)
