Yeah, the drawbacks for witch types are among the weirder things about it. Like, the enchantress is the absolute worst for this. Take warlock, take the enchantress drawback and you've got an ersatz enchantress with a ton more points. And hag, the whole point is power at the price of ugliness. But we can remove the ugly drawback? So is the hag still ugly or what?
It'd make sense if the drawbacks were fixed for witch types but you could also take them as other witches, but it's clearly not that so who the fuck knows.
They also added a bunch of new schools of magic, but didn't increase how many power points you actually get, which is weird. And the academic witch in general fucks with the balancing. Honestly they should all have some option of gaining more points, or the whole thing should be thrown out.
I say Aromage tier just because I find her work tends to have some real kitchen sink approaches to worldbuilding. It can't just have magic. It has to have magic and demigods and demons and nanotechnology and cybernetic arms. She actually did do a pretty cool symbiote CYOA that I really like though, so there's that.
And yeah, it actually is the immortality types guy. Which was pretty great.>>79736661
Honestly I completely get you, I still do like some aspects of this, I just really loved the original so Ive got a bunch to bitch at. The redux is a George Lucas CYOA. It'd be great if he employed someone to slap him when he had stupider ideas.
