Some HARP GMs may feel that not every character should have the capacity to develop skill in magic. In this case, they may object to the suggestion in College of Magics (page 21) that every character start with a free Tap Mana talent. The following talent provides an alternative for such GMs. Like the Tap Mana talents, it is free at first level and costs 20 DPs if developed at a subsequent level.

Empty Vessel

A character with this talent receives a +10 bonus to RRs vs spells and other magical effects, may neither spend nor regain PPs, and has the difficulty of all Attunement manoeuvres increased by one degree. If the character has any Tap Mana talent, she loses that talent when this talent is chosen; if she subsequently purchases such a talent, this talent is lost.
