Not my idea.

Nah. Looks counter-intuitive.

It would be preferable, but since "Kromm explanation" is already used by several topics I guess we're stuck with what we've got.

Ummm ... you may be missing the probable futility of what you're asking.

I should add, albeit belatedly, that I would be happy to be wrong.

"Actual play" for accounts of, well, actual game sessions.

Also, I suggest a note urging people not to over-rely on tags and choose thread titles that are clear and precise, and already include the key words of the discussion. I see tags as useful, but secondary to a good title.

<SOAPBOX>I think this shows why, although software search tools make finding information easier, it is still a skill that needs to be learnt. As long as people do not understand or care how to correctly categorise data, the world will still need librarians.</SOAPBOX>

I too hope that you are wrong in this regard, but I fear not.

Unless you are talking about the book, with bells and whistles and power sources, you are basically talking about "advantages."

"Abilities" is what Powers calls them, referring to any advantage that's been modified in any way. This helps keep them separate from what Powers calls "Powers", which are sets of abilities.
