One of the systems I'm pondering including in project paradigm is a generic research system. But thinking on it, it seems that most things the character/avatar could research and find out it'd be better to push up to the player themselves finding out. Two materials making a stronger material if mixed, the properties of various materials, all can be found out through trial and error and would, in my opinion, engage the explorers(http://www.mud.co.uk/richard/hcds.htm). My friend J suggests that there are some things that can't be discovered that way, like writing. Even if I do include this research system, I'm unsure of how it should work out.
