So, I finally found the time to look at 13th Age and wow, I like how they handled casters. It's a beautiful fusion of Spell Slots and AEDU set up. I want to bring it into normal 4e, but can't really decide how to balance it against the other 4e classes. What would you all suggest? Change power scaling? Allow non-casters a limited "slot" system like the casters?

I'm curious about this now. I think I need to look in to 13th age at least to see how they went about building a system.

I only just took the time to look at the system. I don't like "martial" characters, but I really like how they did a combo of Vancian and 4e AEDU powers. They scale spells far differently than I would, but I think the set up works well. Getting it to work nicely with 4e classes that don't use it is a real trip though.
