"They've got the same number and kind of letters they must be the same word herp derp" fixed the Antinomian thing.
@Zaer - You will need to pay the XP to get the hearthstone amulet. Yes, he does have the abilities to make one of his own without too much trouble; however, as per the Directed Crafting revision, anything that a character forges must be paid for from the new owner's experience tab. The sorcery sacrifices will work, if your heart is set on them; I was thinking more along the lines of The Station of Choice
rather than the station of "I hamstring myself for my future working of High Magic."
@Thorn - With how the characters I've got are, the game is likely to have both a nomadic component (finding and mending strange things, people, and worlds) and a Creation-must-rise-and-unite aspect to it. This is one of the reasons I'm emphasizing people try to create characters that are not only inclined to but also interested in working together to accomplish their interests, objectives, and ideals. The primary reason I'm endeavoring to start with eight is that I do suspect there will be some player attrition; life has a way of getting in the way of things. The world will be moving on regardless of what PCs do; what they get involved in, and what they work to set in motion, will be the make or break of how things turn out.
@Shadow - We'll say pick ten forms for every Charm Cali has that lets her eat a form. Everything has to be within the bounds of her ability to take those forms.
