That means that spells like Banish or Counterspell just fail rather than putting the mage into a coma.
I like that idea, maybe even more so if it were a literal fuse that needs replacement.
You know, as a hook for some some sort of magical mechanics guild, or something.

One thing I just realized ... if you had the magery limitation that prevented you from spending your own personal energy (only powerstones and stuff) wouldn't that prevent you from overspending w/ banish and risking KOing yourself?
