Any advice for if we want to add that back in?
Well, as GM I added path of gates into incantation magic. It's been OK so far.

I had a question as to bestows bonus/penalty p.15.
Is giving a penalty to resist a spell a broad, moderate, or single task/skill?
Thx.

A spell? (Requires expansion)

As in 'gives -3 to resist the rotting death spell' (single skill)
'gives -3 to resist spells from the elementalisim path' (moderate)
'gives -3 to resist any magic' (broad)

Pretty much the above. Sorry. I was at the doctor's (standard check up, nothing major) otherwise I would have answered sooner.

As in I build a spell:
Inflict Pain: 23+SP
Control Transfiguration (5), Range 20yds (6), Affliction: Severe Pain (12), -2 to resist (?)

Ghostdancer will likely answer as well, but.

You can't do this.

You need to hit a foe with full resistance on a weakening spell first, then they will resist further spells at the penalty.

Otherwise you are basically asking for 'how can i break the rule of 16 with rpm/incantation'.

Depending on your gm there may be ways to augment the likelyhood of the weakening spell taking effect (making it a side effect or follow up on a damaging spell to move it to an active defense instead of a resistance for example)

Problem is I am the GM & one of my players wants do apply -to resit on the spells. It shouldn't brake rule of 16 anymore than penalizing the resistance roll with a previous spell. Right?

PS: thanks for your interest & help.
