I was thinking that rather than base your magicka regeneration off of the amount you have used, base it instead off of your physical condition which would be a average of your health and fatigue. So in the morning you would regenerate much faster than if wounded or tired or both.

Something like {RegRt= X(H+F)/T} where T is Time in seconds, F is Fatigue, H is Health and RegRt is the Regeneration Rate of your Magicka. So lets say for ease of discussion, your health is 50 and your fatigue is also 50 and X was .0001 then you would regen at .1/1 or 1 point every 10 seconds. You could bias this so the gen rate does not climb in proportion to your magicka and a really powerful mage might take all day to regen their magic where a low level might totally regen in 3 hours.

That's what this was missing - options! I knew it was missing something. :)

I should be able to get to this over the weekend, but also that's not the only thing I want to do. Also I need to do a bit of planning. )
Previous experience tells me it's very easy to misunderstand the tone, intent, or meaning of what I've posted. If you have questions, ask.
