I think you rather overestimate your persuasive abilities. You're not going to win this one. You also don't really respond to what other people say in any meaningful way, which means that replying to...

The new colours for mages just don't make sense to me - neither the spellbooks or the monster. The others do, though. I would really like to have the red back, especially cos we've lost all the...

That is a bit outside the realm of what can be done in the gamedata files, I'm afraid.

I really like Derakon's take - it seems like the most Vanilla-flavoured thing that water could be. A nice mechanic and not adding loads of extra faff or rules.
