First update for a while!
Well it’s been more than a while – it’s been far too long in fact. Hopefully that will change though! There’s been some interest in the Hack over at the official Cortex Plus forums, which is great to see.
mrchrislackey suggested a good variation to the magical drain SFX:
SFX: Powered up spell. Add any size die to a pool that includes sorcery. At the end of the action take mental stress equal to that die type.
I really like that, thanks Chris! It is elegant and simple to implement. The nice part about is it that it can be used with the Drain Limit if you really want to cause trouble for yourself. I’ve added it to the Magic Talents section and let me know in the forums how it works for you.
