This is brilliant.

Thanks so much -I'm glad you like it! Let me know if it ends up being useful! 

I adore how you gameified this. Thinking through the type of scouring fantastical wizards will do with such a wonderful tool - I love it

You are too kind -Thank you!

A lovely redditor asked me some questions about the admittedly vague ideas presenting in my jame submission and I explained myself at lengths about inspiration and intention, check it out if that interests you: r/solo_roleplaying : Word as Spell

This looks like a great idea! Reminds me of an rpg where you use a dictionary as your spellbook and rip pages out as you use them. Forgot what it's called.

Hi! Thanks for looking! That sounds like a really interesting idea too! I'd love to check that out if you can remember the name of it!

My jaw actually dropped for a moment with how incredibly clever this idea is. Outstanding!

Oh that is incredibly kind of you! I've never tried writing any "rules" (we'll apply that name loosely) before, I've usually thought about styling other, established systems only. This has been a pretty encouraging experience as far as maybe trying to design my own game entirely. Thanks so much for the feedback! 🙏🏼☺️
