Possible. I've been throwing Costs Fatigue as a modifier to various enhancements; which led me to Leech to recover that Fatigue.

This still leaves the chance of failure once the target has been acquired. But, yes, Compartmentalized Mind is a good idea. :)

Something to consider for spaceships, but they can draw on small generators as well.

Actually, yes. The amount of fatigue I've set the actual powers to cost for their boosted performance isn't doable with Regeneration.

A similar setup would be to link healing to leech, you can transfer life from one person to another person.
Hmm. Something to think about.

Probably what I'm going to go with. I'd still like a 'sticky' enhancement, but I've no idea how to price it.

Heh. That'd be alot of familiars to purchase, everything from a small engine all the way up to a dedicated space station's main power plant. :)

You could use the smallest size engine available for a craft, and use the cost (those generators seem awfully expansive to maintain if memory serves). Also you could just use a Psi Amplifier throne, bonus's to both *talent* and *power level* would definitely work there as well. I'd still go with a power plant, 100K for free FP is nothing.
