I run a GURPS fantasy campaign since 2008. I was one of the creators of the world we play in, Erinel, published in Czech. I have also authored a RPG about magi high on magic; my other tries for gamedesign and worldbuilding stopped halfway or were not published. Small, experimental indies are my other favorite RPGs after GURPS. I have also played Czech RPGs Dračí Doupě and Dračí Doupě Plus for some years.

Why is this rule good, why should anyone else introduce it? "Just the way I run things" is not considered constructive here unless it helps the questioner somehow.

Wasn't he "Judge" Dee? Books about Judge Dee were my number one source for low-tech investigation, and I recommend them to everybody interrested in this topic.

comment Truly alien NPC races
I like this. Fantasy cliché is that goblins are small and weak while orcs are big, but what if they're just one r-strategy race and orcs are just adult goblins? I did this in my world, justifying both ordinary goblinoid "cannon-fodder" strategies and frequent occurence of excellent orcish warriors are a challenge for high-level PCs even by themselves.

comment “High on Magic” - how original is it?
Paradox is slightly different, because it doesn't penalize any magic, just the vulgar magic. I already know Mage, but thanks for reminding.
