Re: House Rules, Ideas and the Like

Also note, we don't use the term "memorization" to describe the magic system in BFRPG. My rationale is this: It takes time to actually cast a spell, saying the words, making the gestures, and investing the energy in the dweomer.

Good ol' quadratic wizards. If you're using one of the spell-point systems, you could use casting from hitpoints as a desper...
