Default Re: [Sorcery] Afflicting Magic Resistance

No. There are two ways to do it. You can say that because Magic Resistance is a taboo trait for people with some form of magery, the attempt to afflict Resistance on them simply won't work. Under this approach, you can't, say afflict a mundane stone with increased intelligence or increased movement. It has no intelligence to increase and it can't move under it's own power. Those traits are simply incompatible with "being a stone".

Alternately you could rule that it's just taboo to buy Magic Resistance for Mages. You can still afflict them with it or have them wear a Resistance gadget and they will still be able to cast spells. Just at minus whatever the level of Resistance is.
