I've been kicking around a number of thoughts on Porte, so I thought I'd offer them here and see if anyone else has been feeling the same way or want to soundboard on a few tweaks as well.
One thing that did bug me was the cost of a Dramatic Wound when using the Socery, and I've been contemplating a few ways around it. A part of the thought was due to the novelization (a Porte user not injuring themselves and not opening a blessure), and another was just an issue with the way the mechanic worked.
