Base Cost: 10
A Null Mage may absorb a spell targeted at them. This may only be done with directly damaging spells. The Null Mage must take the full damage, not reduced. They also recover a number of Essence equal to the rank of spell, also not reduced.
Some scenarios here to clarify, I'll start with some obvious ones initially
a.) Took all 5 hits of a Strike to the Chest Location
b.) Took all 5 hits of a Strike to Plate Armour
c.) Took all 5 hits of a Strike to Shielding
d.) Took all 5 hits to Global Hits granted by Dex/Skirmish etc
e.) Took a mixture of hits to Chest Location/Armour
f.) Took a mixture of hits to Globals/Armour
a.) Clearly it works.
b.) Not sure...
c.) I would say that it works?
d.) If Shields work, can't see why other sources of globals wouldn't
e.) Not sure...
f.) Not sure...
Anyone want to weigh into this.
There's probably a bunch more scenarios than this, and the only person who I think had something similar to this was Solace, and I'm pretty sure he just took it to shielding.
Anyway, answers on a postcard... or y'know here. Preferably here.
