    Fate is the least complex. Mage is... Well, imagine a system where a big part of the system is crafting unique spells on the fly based on general mastery over certain aspects of reality where by the rules you can do literally anything as long as you know how.

    Though to be honest, for the most part I would probably put actual sphere abilities in the hands of the gods, named would get specific abilities to go with their general motif/aspects. Basically repurpose the rules for implants. I'm... Actually kind of tempted to try and cobble this into a working set of house rules now.

    Oh, I know. We tried to play Mage once (one of my friends was into V:tM, but the rest of us didn't really like it much... Mage was offered as a compromise to stay in WoD). We couldn't make heads or tails of the rules. I was therefore slightly concerned with the possibility that might have been Rynjin's low end of the complexity scale.

    Largely because outside skill tests and direct combat, the rules are mostly just polite suggestions.

    Mage is a game where the only stat that you need is a high RL Charisma, to convince the Storyteller.

The pancakes are also laced with blowfish poison so the party would have to get an antitoxin before they could eat the ones which weren't pulverized by shoes."

    I don't think anyone would want those pancakes even if you paid them to eat them.

    This is where my +2 pizza of persuasion combined with advantage from my beer of bribery comes in handy.
