        Creatures and humans on the same chart?  I don't think that would
be feasible, at least if you're looking for a reasonably easy-to-use table.
One for critters and one for humans would be a much better bet.

        Well, that could be a small project to mollify my urge to do a
whole new game....

        He wanted to be able to power up a handful of trinkets and use
those without tapping into his personal mana very often.  I mandated that
he not only worry about creating the items and adhere to the letter of the
law in using them, but that he have to actively maintain them.  He figured
he could just spend a bunch of time out of play making bunches of items and
then use them when he got around to it.  I told him he had to constantly
check the "charge" in each to check for "seepage" and spend time
maintaining each item.  With one item, this would be inconsequential--he
wanted dozens of items, though.
