So, we were discussing syllables for Frank on that german rpg forum. A rules problem popped up. The rules explicitly state:

Quote
only animate beings can be affected, and a being cannot be compelled to do an impossible task.

Being followed shortly by an example

Quote
If an enemy is holding onto a cliff edge, and the speaker says "fast" to the wind, then the wind will blow faster, and the enemy will receive penalty dice to hang on.

So, is the wind an animate being? Is this an artifact from TSoY, first Edition? Am I dense?

Adjectives apply to anything. Verbs apply only to people and beasts.

If you come across a post by a guest called Frank T, that was me. My former Forge account was destroyed in the Spam Wars. Collateral damage.
