Hi Steve, everyone.
There is another disadvantage which you are not considering. At low attribute levels, wizards and fighters are fairly well balanced. As the characters become more experienced, wizards become over powered compared to heroes. The "staff is a free fatigue ST bank" idea will just make things worse.

I would prefer that Staffs stay the same. If the wizard wants more fatigue ST to power spells, they always can buy ST batteries. They can even put the power stone ON TO the staff if they want.

On a side note, I like the Power Stones from GURPS much more than the ST Batteries from TFT. I would really like if the ST Batteries were quietly swapped out for Power Stones.

Warm regards, Rick.
