nothing of note beyond resting
« on: March 12, 2012, 06:15:38 AM »
Characters naturally recover 1 of each Resilience per day. Certain magic
particularly Pewter Allomancy and Feruchemical goldminds can accelerate
this process (see pages 299 and 355).
Additionally, during a Short Breather, a character...
...recovers half of any lost Health, rounded up, though only if he or she sits
the Breather out (doing nothing of note beyond resting).

my question is this, does storing in a mettle mind count as something of note beyond resting?  So if my Ferchamist needs to recover some health during a long breather can he also store charges?

I was thinking that this might be a way to balance out the power of a keeper, that and sticking to no more than one short rest per session.

The rules state that a Feruchemist can't regain health while storing health in a goldmind, but I think the rest are ok.

It's a judgement call really, but I would tend to rule against it.  From a rules standpoint, it means feruchemists get a lot extra from breathers than everyone else.  From a "common sense" standpoint, aggressively storing certain attributes would tend to make one feel even sicker and more out of sorts, potentially hampering the healing process (storing mental speed might make one thoughtlessly move in ways that open up wounds, storing luck would mean things keep falling on you, etc).

Of course, in most cases it probably won't come up - what feruchemist isn't going to have a sizable store of health to draw upon?  Instead, feruchemists would tend to spend breathers storing health...
