Okay, then replace comfortable with a different word.
I thought I just replaced it with "I don't want to"?
Eh, okay. I keep getting the vibe that you’re taking this personally, and I’d rather not continue the interaction.
Well, I did give some pushback on the "comfortable" because it was ascribing a mental state to me that seemed kind of judgmental.
But this one, I have no idea where you got that I was taking it personally. I was indicating the technique I use instead. Putting together an exploration of magic that doesn't actually do
anything seems like a poor choice of priorities, when my players can, and do, do it without my interference. Similarly, I allow them to build out elements of their character's culture, so long as it doesn't muck with plots in motion or contradict established canon of the game.
All that said, I'm fine if you don't want to continue.
