Re: Non-Vancian magic
This was exactly the sort of fine-tuning advice I wanted. First, I think I'll cut Lifecasting out entirely, since you have a point about it being too complicated. About the issues of the mana pool, I can alter that in a number of ways if necessary, but what you were saying about the mana pool being very high compared to spell costs was something of the flavor I was looking for, and I do like the idea that using up all your juice leaves you weak for a few days. On second thought, though, I might alter the rejuviantion effect to match that of Hp regain, which would make the recharge rate roughly proportionate to the mage's total power (good). I do admit that this runs a bit into Linear Warriors, Quadratic Wizards, but all D&D rather does that.
