OK. I wasn't sure if compounding and spending were the exact same, as they seem to be slightly different systematically, but this makes sense.

I wonder if that's some mutilated attempted at a Mass Effect franchise film...

I've had one Windows 7 update that hasn't successfully applied itself in ....8 months?

I'm going to wipe and reinstall if I ever find the damn disks again.

Postpartum depression and postpartum psychosis are horrible diseases Koala.

Yes.  Yes they are.  We lost one of our receptionists to PPP.  (She literally ran away from home, developed what sounds like delusional schizophrenia and has since become divorced, never rejoined the family or kids...)  That said.. I'm honest enough to know I see a kid with a slit throat, my composure is going to fail and the person who did the cutting, no matter the reason, is going to get hurt.  Thus.. could never do the blue job.  

Given how there are people here who'd shoot a child who might have a weapon rather the risk being wrong, I think the job numbs one to such horrors.

That's like saying soldiers get numb to taking a human life.  They're two completely different things.  Shooting a child who might have a weapon isn't a symptom of callousness to value of life, it's a statement of the perceived eminent violence possible in our society, even at then hands of said child.  

In this we partially disagree and, given how skewed the stats are when the topic of race is factored in, clearly some "possibly armed" children and men are more "eminently violent" then others.

As for soldiers, I can't see how it's not numbing. People, granted people who very much might deserve a bullet or three, get made into targets. Targets get easier to take down. That isn't cause for a claim of a blanket devaluing of human life, but I'm not seeing how that's anything but human stress adaption.
For better or worse, we can get used to anything if the necessity exists.

I'm wondering what they were thinking.

Something like The Hobbit or maybe the new Star Wars might work there, but even that is probably a bad idea.

Skaa Stunt: Malnutrition. You are weak and easily killed.

Actually, there're Stunts in Terris which play with Willpower, so if I had to guess I'd say there'd be similar ones playing with Health for Skaa (given that they're genetically hardier) and ones playing with Reputation for Nobles.

It's nice and neat too, because it covers all three people groups and all three resiliences.

AoL's out. What's next?
"Skaa: Tin and Ash"!
And after that?
"Nobles: Atium and Balls"? "Nobles: Atium and Dancing"? "Nobles: Atium and Privilege"?

Wait. No. There was "Terris: Wrought of Copper" and "Skaa: Tin and Ash," so it doesn't have to follow a "x: y and z" format.

I've got it! "Noble: Spires of Steel"! Evoking Kredik Shaw, standing strong/pillars of strength, and the Steel Ministry. Cheesy

The question I was going to ask before I forgot last time:
Is compounding limited by allomancy, feruchemy, or both?
According to the AoL rules (quite reasonably in my opinion), both. You can only compound as many charges at once as your Allomancy rating, and spending those charges is limited by your Feruchemy. It's elegant, I think.
