  • It's not really something that irks me. I've enjoyed fiction that plays it fast-and-loose and fiction where things are slow and methodical. If I recall correctly, Harry Potter isn't actually an amazing wizard. He just survived a thing he shouldn't have survived. My Harry Potter friends insist there are many more powerful, intelligent, charismatic, and interesting wizards to be found in those stories. One that comes up often is Hermione.

    It's fairly normal in some anime, or just video games (Skyrim), to fly through magic training and become an ace in a montage or couple of hours of...

  • At the same time, you could plug in the exp and be given a time frame for when that skill should be available for use.

    Also, natural story progression can allow for time skips. Not to mention the use of magic to try and commit skills to memory much faster (if the ST is inclined on permitting fast-tracking, but couching it within a magic modified extended action over a period of time). It probably works best with mind and life, but I imagine you can get creative with other arcana.

    It makes perfect narrative sense to me for Thyrsus or Mastigos to learn physical and mental...
