Default Re: [Sorcery] Afflicting Magic Resistance

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.
The first option is what I personally lean towards. But I was having trouble putting this into words. Thank you.
