Vielen Dank, Fred, that's great stuff! :)

DL'ed, looking it over now.  The real irony is, there's a Convention up here this weekend that I'm already running a one-shot for. 
Tips for the Evil Henchman:
#12. If the seemingly helpless person you have just cornered is confident and unafraid despite being outnumbered and surrounded, you have encountered a Hero in disguise. Run while you still can.

And now for the nitpicking... (sorry!)

Okay, the kinetomancer, Maria Emana, has Refinement which adds to her Control and Power--which is explicitly not possible according to Your Story, which says that if you have Channeling, you can only buy Refinement for the additional item slots.  With italics, even.

Maybe Lawbreaker repeals that restriction. Might explain why Russel from YS seems to have 3 refinement even though he doesn't have the base restrictions for a sorcerer,  (then again, it doesn't actually show what he spent them on, since his stats seem to cover only 1.5 counts of Refinement, and his focus items would be covered by his Channeling and Thaumaturgy powers)

Russel must be really bad at it then, because he's missing a Refinement and a half. ;D

That's more "room for growth" and "slots for potions". :)
