i started dividing the current domains into a mesh of associated concepts (light, associated with sacredness and clarity, and dark, associated with the moon, decay and the occult/profane) but for that to work i'm going to need to revise my parser/generator code a little as opposed to just writing more data
(the concept is that there are five fundamental aspects of a school of magic: spells, which have specific effects and which may be empowered in various ways; rites or rituals which produce or refine magical objects for use in other spells or rituals; modifiers for spells or rites which change or otherwise empower spells; complex tools which introduce their own set of mechanics to produce things (e.g., cauldrons to produce various types of brews, or summoning circles to summon different kinds of spirits or w/e); and mystery rites, which introduce a new associated domain into the set of possible spell effects.
currently the code only handles spells (without any clear mechanical effects or other boosts) and rituals (each producing a single kind of magical thing). you can see there's some preliminary modifier stuff in the second file, but it's not really connected to anything yet.

and there's something really infuriating and nefarious about twitter/fb/google/whoever appropriating the word "algorithmic"—with all its connotations of fairness and impartiality and monolithicity—to mean "does whatever we want it to do at this particular moment" (instead of, you know, "following an unambiguous set of rules and steps")
Does your chat protocol have first-class clients that include all features and run natively on desktop systems instead of just web browsers, mobile phones or Electron?
Then your chat protocol is as good at being a chat protocol as the average bowl of pudding.
