@ischade I imagine that spells are a bit like NodeJS packages. You really just want a minor healing potion but end up importing 3782 dependencies, requiring several flocks of goats, the blood of a village worth of virgins, seventeen generations of newts worth of newt-eyes, a small star's output worth of candles, and countless other accouterments. You look inside the interdimensional spell_modules/ folder and notice its contents would fill several city blocks.
@ed1conf I feel like this is something Terry Pratchett would've written about, if he had known anything about coding.
