  • It caps at 10B? Sounds weird...

  • I'm less sour about this rule than I was when I originally posted my complaint, but I still feel it takes a little of the "creative" out of creative thaumaturgy.

    For instance, if I create a spell that isn't in the book I can do whatever I want, but if a spell that I want is different only in Primary factor and it's in the book, then I can't do it without spending the Reach. That doesn't make sense.

    If there were firmer guidelines like the ones WHW is proposing I would be more supportive of the rule as there would be OBJECTIVE criteria for determining the Primary...

  • Reach to switch primary factor ...

    ... is the worst rule in 2e.

    It's the new speed bump. It makes little sense in Creative Thaumaturgy that you can't just make the spell that you want with the Primary factor that you want. Many times there are multiple interpretations of what a more powerful version of a spell would be, so I don't find this to be valid argument either.

  • I think I would just add an additional +1 Reach option to change the Gnosis + Potency Speed to Gnosis x Potency. So for the extra Reach, assuming you can get to 3 Potency you would be flying at 3 x 3 = 9 at Gnosis 3 instead of 3 + 3 = 6, with additional benefits if you can get the Potency or Gnosis up of course. Maybe a Master could get 5 x 5 = 25 speed, which is probably fast enough. I would also allow a full out charge to give you 2x Speed, like it does on the ground.
