Goblin Queen (She/Her/Hers)
I actually think the idea of having the player create different magic words and gestures for each spell and perform them when they cast them could be pretty neat. But as a fun (optional) creative and performance exercise, not as a requirement to cast a spell.Absolutely not.
Why is it only skillful characters get subjected to this stuff? Nobody's asking the Wizard to learn how to perform actual magic tricks (let alone literal magic) in order to cast spells. Why do people keep inventing extra hurdles for the mundane characters in the party?
I actually think the product itself is pretty neat. It’s just the notion of using it in place of an ability check that’s nonsense.Why are so many people so dead-set on making everything stupidly difficult unless it's solved by magic? And why do so many people then complain that magic is too prevalent and needs to be nerfed or made foolishly dangerous?
I just...I don't get what people are getting out of all this. What's the point? Why is it fun to have to jump through hoops (perhaps literally?!?) before you're allowed to enjoy the cool stuff your character is capable of doing?
