This looks awesome. If it can be refined it'd be great way to bring narrative folks into the game.

    * I like the idea of Wyrding and reading the runes to form sentences to determine what a character can do.
    * I'm slightly concerned of this slowing down game play when people pause to figure out what kind of sentence they want to build.
    * Maybe it should be stressed that these are mechanic words and you are free to add a cinematic flair (that don't count rulewise) beyond this?
    * Damage may need to be reworked into something simpler with this system.
    * It would be kind of fun to have interrupts that can add/modify/or remove a word form an action.
    * Metas could be adjectives.

This one is even more of a stretch for RGS2 evolution, but I added it because it was already in development and would make for a nice conversation piece when talking about what we could do with the runes when it comes to evolving RGS2.

I suspect you are very right about analysis paralysis if the system is too rigid. It may feel like a game of scrabble, and that's not the intent. The cinematic flair could be governed by the Trait perhaps, rather than the sentence length?

As for damage, I coin the term "wounds" and avoid numbers all together. The wound would be a description rather than a numerical value.

Adjectives? Nice!

The DRGS reminds me strongly of the Wushu System, which similarly builds based on words used. Might be useful in building upon/avoiding pitfalls.

That's a good point Raleel.

Be kind of neat if you could wyrd 1 rune per description, up to your Destiny.
