Default Re: [Magic] Magery et al with Temporary Disadvantages

Druid's Blood by Esther M. Friesner had a system of magic where mages had a set amount of mana. So that fireball you cast today could have been a spell to keep you youthful. Getting a mage to cast a powerful spell for you required a lot of convincing, like enough money to retire on for a decade.

It also means that putting a mage in a life or death situation means they can spend thousands of mana to get out and will really hate you if you live.
