    Magiocratic

    Discussion thread for Magiocratic.

    Incidentally, why are we using "magiocratic" rather than "magocratic"? A quick search of Wikipedia indicates that "magocracy" is more common and it certainly rolls off the tongue more easily. This isn't a criticism - just a query.

    Magocratic is more common and is the D&D standard. I'm not sure whether I am using a variant or can't spell.

    I nominate you to find out then I'll even do the spelling corrections if you decide that "magiocratic" is in error :P

    I think we should conform to the spelling in the DMG, which is "magocratic".

    What does SEO mean?

    Incidentally, looking at the goverment templates, shouldn't that be "whom it serves"?

    Actually I have done that as part of my job. I have also advised other businesses on how to do it.

    Only if you construct a sentence in which government is the subject and there is a prepositional phrase in which then would require "whom". No prepositional phrase, no whom, and depending on how you read it, "it" can be the subject of its on question, rather than the object of government.
