The current EmB of the caster varies use of Sidh Magic. The stronger his
Em, the stronger his use of the magic. In all cases, the effective EL of
a Sidh Magic spell is *EL – (Current EmB – 3)*. If the result is less
than zero the spell is not cast effectively at the EL known.
EXAMPLE – Alvus Jon has an Em of 43. His EmB is +2. He subtracts one
from the effective EL of Sidh magic he knows. Those he knows at EL0
cannot be cast effectively. When his Em reaches 51 his bonus becomes +3.
He will subtract nothing. The Faerry who taught him has a +5 EmB. She
adds TWO to the EL for her use of Sidh Magic.
The formula is wrong. Take mages Exceptional (EmB of 5); Average (EmB of
3); Dull (EmB of 1).
EL - (5-3) = EL-2 when Exceptional should get +2. EL-(3-3)=EL; EL -
(1-3) = EL-(-2)= EL+2 when Dull should get EL-2.
Solution: Change the formula to EL + (Current EmB -3) OR EL-3+EmB
