(damage) life drained per turn.

syphoned is an effect that drains the life essence of a target over time. Every turn, if the user's Ego (or the effect's level, whichever is higher) is greater than the target's MA with a randomized number from -4 to +4 added, the target will be inflicted with the specified damage and the user will heal that amount. This effect can be reality distorting depending on the source.
