The folks here are just trying to offer ways that they would/could use the SW magic system as it stands, or with minor trapping tweaks fit what they believe, from your posts, you are after.
As I stated in my previous posts, this is NOT simply a matter of "trapping tweaks." If that were the case, I wouldn't be here. I thought the basic SW spells were too general and did not match the "career progression" (for lack of a better term) for a spellcaster in the setting.
I asked for help molding the SW magic system to match the setting, but all I'm hearing is the mantra "I don't see a difference, so use the stock magic system... I don't see a difference so use the stock magic system..." There IS a difference. There is a MAJOR difference.
Now, I realize that not everyone knows the Tekumel setting. OK, no problem, I'm cool with that. However, despite their ignorance, these same people jump in with suggestions ("Use the stock system.... Use the stock system...") about a setting they admittedly know little, if anything, about. I appreciate the suggestion, but...
In the end all I'm getting is really frustrated to the point where I just want to toss the whole damn project just to make everyone happy. I don't feel that anyone is listening to (or rather, reading) me. If they were, then they'd see my point. I feel like I'm talking (or writing, rather) to a &^%$#@ wall.
I have to go to work. I'm sure I'm going to get lambasted while I'm gone. Fire away.
