That's certainly plausible, and in our games, Jeff has done something like that with relationships. (Though that's a *lot* of directed experience!)

I've mentioned before the boat my character had. I didn't consider it magical at first (though it had a rating, I thought it was just a boat with a name), but as I put Hero Points into the rating, it seemed to get more magical in my mind. Whether the boat was actually becoming more magical, or whether my character was simply learning about its innate magic, who knows?
