comment Are faeries better than wizards?
If you happen to pick Greater Glamours as a power, your veils get a +2, and greater or not, faeries have it much easier than wizards when making veils of comparable potency. I haven't read the books but I think that is the advantage faerie get in the game.

The DF books aren't really explicit about much, they leave a lot to interpolation. I haven't noticed anything that states a faerie veil is different in effect, they seem to be different only in the way they are made.

Consider it a block against an Alertness check that would have a very low difficulty(low enough to skip) if it weren't for the veil-block. The veil increases the difficulty, and the more shifts, the more you see.

I guess it's a complicated matter with every group having their own style of play. You probably have to experiment and find your own granularity sweet spot. Regarding the second point, I'd say sometimes the most innocent remark can have a devastating effect.

What's the story time you assumed for each exchange? Social combat sounds awkward if you match exchanges to every sentence spoken in a dialogue. It sounds much better when each exchange represents a whole subject matter.

Remember that you invoke aspects after you roll the dice. The first thing a roll tells you is a baseline degree of success or failure, and that generates a basic story. If the player doesn't like that, she can invoke aspects by offering an alternative story, and if it makes sense, then her version becomes true.

comment How should one-word “commands” work in languages other than English?
Yes, I agree that perfect consistency is just impossible. I'm just looking for something a bit more consistent than "one word". Something that defines the intent in a better way.

comment How should one-word “commands” work in languages other than English?
Ok, point taken. How about if we call it "a verb without an explicit object" ? I'm just trying to arrive at a more consistent description and I think we agree that "one word" doesn't really fit that bill. Right?
