comment Is there a way to add the “primal” keyword to a power?
Seconded. I have been open to letting players play a wizard, but to replace "Arcane" with "Primal," saying that they're doing it all by communing with spirits, etc. Power sources are almost entirely flavor-driven, in my opinion. You just don't want someone to change their power source all the time -- if ever.

comment Has anyone produced a drop-in well-reasoned economy for a fantasy game?
I ran a space pirates game that more or less used purchasing power, and when it worked, I liked it. I want to run a very old-school feeling D&D game, though, which means some accounting for nonsensical amounts of gold -- but nonetheless I get bugged by small economic details. Anyway, thanks, I will look at the HQ rules for this!

A related question suggested Aurora's Whole Realms Catalogue and A Magical Society: A Silk Road.

This seems like the simplest way to interpret the rules. I hope they'll make it clearer in the next edition, but... you know, I never expect to see PCs make it far enough to matter...

I think that might be the case, too but (a) they did change the class progressions to go to 20 instead of 14 and (b) I'm surprised this omission would survive to the revised edition, if it's a mistake. I am only an amateur nit-picker, and I found it.
