Re: [FateRPG] Dresden Files...
- You take 1 point of mental stress for just casting an evocation. If you draw in extra power past your conviction, it requires an extra mental stress per point over conviction. So, really...a spell requires "Overpower Number + 1" mental stress.If you then fail to control the spell, you have two options.... take mental or physical stress equal to the amount you failed by, or let it cause an un-desired effect.JoshOn Sun, Feb 24, 2013 at 9:45 PM, Tim K. <silverlion@...> wrote:
Aid me in discussion, the Magic rules (notably Evocation) are filled

How does evocation work? Does it really tend to cause Stress every
spell, or is this another person's misreading? My reading was that it
was only if you tried to use/control more ranks than your conviction did
you take stress.
