Thereâ€™s an interesting thread on RPG.net right now about D&Dâ€™s magic system. I go back and forth, loving and hating D&Dâ€™s magic system, personally. Weâ€™ve toyed with the idea of spell points (a la Unearthed Arcana) and other alternative magic systems, but for now are sticking with the core system. The thread covers a lot of the pros and cons of the D&D system. Definitely worth checking out.
