    The idea is interesting, certainly doable, with some additional adjustments. IIRC, the Warlock gets almost the same (with slight delay) the same amount of spells known as the Sorcerer. The Wizard gets more than double that amount, plus the ability to buy more in exchange for gold. In terms of cantrip known, the Sorcerer knows one more than the Wizard who knows one more than the Warlock. ...

    Pretty much. I've seen a small number, but the key seems to be that you don't allow people to buy merits by taking on flaws. Instead, the flaw should grant some benefit if and only if it comes up in the game (so, if the character is scared of fire, the group encounters fire, and the player remembers to apply the flaw then he gains Inspiration... or something like that). Otherwise, as you say,...

    One of the core problems, IMHO, is that even if you expanded the Inspiration Bonds system, it would still be a mostly secondary to the core game. As such, the amount of effort that you need to put in to making Inspiration Bonds work as a more critical player-facing world-building mechanic may not be worth the gains. You could definitely use Inspiration Bonds to world-build, and it may be...

    You could either do it by making it incompatible with characters generated without the wild talents system, and accept that they would be of a higher power level than the norm. Some guidance might be needed about how to design encounters for parties using those rules as well. Alternatively, you could try to balance wild talents with the existing rules using a flaw system.

    Well, what you propose is a massive bump in spell power. It also makes the warlock.less distinctive from other casters, and might use hiccups since, unlike other casters, warlocks get permanent and free-use spells through invocations. So I'm not sure your proposal is necessarily the best idea. But try it. See what you (and your DM, if applicable) think of it. Let us know.
