(The ruleset makes sense and doesn't look that badly written. The issue is that, whenever I get pretentious, I've usually lost my sense of judgment in some way, and I can't figure out in what manner until later. In this case, I THINK it was that I fluffed it out massively when I could have just said it tersely. I think.)
I'm probably just bored with Gen 1/Gen 2 games and should take a break with a more casual run.
(Another issue with pretentiousness: it's usually a marker that I'll blow a ton of energy on it at first, then take one look at it later and go 'WTF? What was I trying to do here?!' Don't get me wrong, I would LIVE off of pretentiousness if I had the energy level necessary, but I crash a few updates/~1000 words into something and don't have the energy level to pick it up again. The enthusiasm is gone.)
Meh. Time to go RP an amnesiac Giratina.
