And you're still not actually giving design requirements.
How should it be different?
What do you want the finished product to look like?
How do the current systems not work or feel off to you?
If you can't answer some questions and articulate your requirements and desires, no one knows what to do to help you.
I never intended to give design requirements. You know, all I did is.ask if they had plans to make a.steampunk sorcerer or something like that. A simple yes or no migration have disappointed, but I want telling them what to do, just asking their intentions.
And now I feel like the victim of the inquisition, starting with veiled comments a out reskinning, and every time I try to.defend my position..
Look,playing the.powers of the priest.and that of.the mage.are.mechanically very different presumably so is the psionics, as they are writing rules.for.that. So, my design criteria is "make it mechanically different, in the same way arcane users, divine users, and psionics users are mechanically different."
Thats it. Why is that so hard to understand?
And for that matter, read the last paragraph, under the era of industrial on page 307. Now Imagine a setting where one kingdom is feudal in tech, and follows all the standard rules, and another that is industrial and is intended to actually live up to the promise of that last paragraph.
Under the current rules, how to you accomplish that promise, and keep it different from the feudal kingdoms; if they get to the same goal and the only difference is the skin, then why even bother?
If that paragraph is supposed to be more than just flavor text, and industrial tech blending with magic is supposed to come up with hinge that are grand new, hen it sure seems unsatisfying, to me, to just say "ah just make a lightning wand and call it a gun."
Because that, then, isn't anything new or wondrous. It's just the same thing in a different canister.
Really, though, all I wanted to know if they were going to make this stuff. I wasn't demanding they do. And now I find myself having to defense.myself instead. I wasn't making demands, just having a single questuon and a conversation. I didn't expect this reaction.
This was a mistake, I see.
