... introducing a suite of new psychic and occult magics to the game ...
Psionics must be usable by Evil AI Computers and Robots, because Psionicsis "mental magic". These types of game constructs are purely mental,
because they can think but are not alive. To be balanced, some of them
should have 'spell casting' ability.
If this is excluded in the rules, I will avoid it with distaste.

You're taking a set of the rules that most people already have a hard time understanding, and you're basically adding more detail.
Also, how well does this port to giant spiders, serpents, squids, bears and so forth, that use very different appendages to grab?
Luckily this is a game of imagination, and you can do anythingyou want to. However, in light of your first criticism, I understand
you suffer limitations.
I think we're better off with the more generic current system.
Don't use my rules then. Win-Win. I don't have to explain them,and you don't have to struggle.

could be the reverse.)

You'll find that the answer depends a lot on factors such as the color of your skin, and the relative wealth of the family you were born into.
I bet these factors you mention are highly predicted by: education, household income, unemployment, disability, life expectancy, obesity.And, may be why they chose only these features.

It turns' out I'm actually employing this theory when using my "Sorcerous Origins" abilities in our 5e game.
But this is wrong according to rational choice theory! It is logically
Let’s see why. Consider the events D = Dead and A = Alive. Also
If you pay x dollars to remove one bullet from four, then you are
Therefore, with a utility function u, we have:
u(Lx) = (1/6) u(D) + (5/6) u(A)
Similarly, when you are willing to pay y dollars to remove a bullet
(3/6) u(Ly) + (3/6) u(D) = (4/6) u(D) + (2/6) u(A)
We can simplify the above equation to get:
u(Ly) = (2/6) u(D) + (4/6) u(A)
If we take u(D) = 0, then since we prefer to be alive that means u(A) > 0. So we have
u(Lx) = (5/6) u(A)
u(Ly) = (4/6) u(A)
u(Lx) – u(Ly) = (1/6) u(A) > 0
In other words, you prefer to be alive after paying x dollars to being
Therefore, under the Von Neumann and Morgenstern utility theory, you
This goes against intuition, so let us offer a few justifications for the logic.

If I get to make the game mechanics then, for the moment, let's say Yes.Now, what are the consequences of this for casting in a zero-g environment
(with a "normal" atmosphere) ?
If you are saying "No" and amped up to fight me, then this thread is not for you.
Who said that a Fire Ball has momentum when it leaves your hand?
No one. That's part of the question.
Possible answers can be: 1. Yes fireball does have momentum, or 2. No
