Is this too overpowered for a feat?The Dire Reverend<

Why would it be? Removing a situational immunity for a power which is hard to get in the first place, seems fair. -- Eiji-kun 07:13, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
also, does it make sence that even though it's positive energy, it harms the living? I was thinking about how people can die in positive energy planes due to positive energy overdose. The Dire Reverend 08:57, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
Positive energy damage exists, so yes. Now why it drains instead of injures through addition is the question. Perhaps a fluff justification is that you energize the life of your opponent so it bursts from them (injuring them) as you feed off its radiance (the "drain" implied in energy or ability drains, even if you don't actually heal or anything from it). Since drain is jsut a fancy word for "permenant damage rest won't fix this" it works. -- Eiji-kun 09:11, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
