I have always handled essence loss effects in game as a strictly RP sort of thing, and rewarded it with Karma.  I like the idea that it is more the effects the cybernetics have on you that guides you to the RP, if you are built to be a hammer every thing starts to look like a nail. All these normal people are so slow why don't they talk faster I have had six conversation via IM in my head before this guy sputtered out a sentence or two.

 I also like the notion that the more power a magical type gets they also feel a sort of a disconnect from the rest of (meta)humanity. If you can kill someone with a thought then maybe bring them back from the brink of death there is bound to be some sort of a disconnect, if you can shift into a large animal or fly or what ever just by thinking it or talk to beings that are not from this plane there is bound to be some disconnect.

No more so than a surgeon. ;)

I've known surgeons there is a huge disconnect there already.

Some people can handle this kind of thing, and some people can't.  It's the same with anyone who has an advanced skillset (or perceived one).  Just take a look at all the starlets and pro sports folks who overindulge in stupidity.
There is no overkill.

Only "Open fire" and "I need to reload."
