Many people are probably already familiar with the way bat describes his new items at Ancient Vaults & Eldritch Secrets. bat has a stable of recurring characters who use his new items in action scenes, following with game info. For an example read this spell, which I think is pretty nifty mechanically, too.
Every once in a while you run into a method or process that works so well it subsequently seems the only right way to do something. And yet to adopt it feels like copying something distinctive and personal, unlikely to equal the quality of the originator. Thank you and damn you, bat.
I'll probably just plod along with my Ed Greenwood pastiche.
