Recently a poster on the forums asked:
"I was wondering how someone would model soul stealing spells and creating soul gems (that function basically the same way as Mana-stones). I don't see any spells, besides maybe soul jar, that represent ripping the soul of of a being and converting its energy into a Mana-stone.Well that's an interesting series of questions, isn't it? As someone who has toyed around with the value of souls before I felt obligated to weigh in on this.
I was also wondering how damage to someone's soul would be modeled. Maybe direct damage to their Will rather than HP or FP with 0 Will resulting in instant dead with no chance of resurrection?
And finally, could such a soul stone function like a dedicated mana-stone that only recharges based on soul damage that is dealt?"
