    I'm going to try to parse this very carefully. Apologies if I don't get it right the first time.

    Roleplaying is a collaborative social space. The comfort of all participants is absolutely the most important thing, full stop.

    What I don't like about the concept of a consent mechanic is that it puts in-game boundaries on what is "legitimate" to be uncomfortable with. In the case of the Oleander Law, it specifically calls out "big narrative consequences". But powerful magic you can tag with a keyword doesn't have a monopoly on narrative consequences!...

    Maybe more akin to the Red Rule, but yeah. It's weird to me to attach this type of table-etiquette, social contract in a keyword for specific Charms, probably because it implies that it doesn't apply otherwise. Why does blowing up a city with Disharmonious Cosmic Exhalation need unanimous consent, when other mass-destruction powers do not? And if the table doesn't like the consequences of blowing up that city, why can we retcon it if we did it with DCE, but we can't retcon it if we destroyed it some other way?...

    Some quick thoughts:

    I like the idea that, from the perspective of the least of their users, the Sidereal Styles are essentially one-off Charms that you have to master an entirely separate Martial Art to learn. That makes them inherently weird and esoteric; why would I learn dots of Iridescent Seals of Restraint to access one Charm when I can learn Snake Style or Dreaming Pearl or whatever and access an entire Style? Of course, to mortals one is as good as the other but without enlightened practitioners championing it, mortal schools of such a style would be super rare, and super...
