Perhaps I can use that as a metaphorical state.
"Ithaca" here could mean their final resting place.
I'll admit that the thing I most want to work on is the magic, but until the Dresden Files RPG, I didn't have any clue how I would handle it.
Now I have a little bit of a clue, but not an entire clue in and of itself.
I'm still not sure whether it should be 'equal' or opposite. I like the idea of the badass who can kill you with his fists being able to kill you with his mind, but I also like the idea of the guy who heals injuries because he beat a man into a coma, or who can raise the dead having gotten that power by killing a hundred people.
Other examples are luck spells that are earned by making a sacrifice of pickpocketting someone, or slipping money into their pockets. For a minor spell, you might have to slip them a five. Just a little bit of luck. For the ability to get Fate to cast it's capricious eye towards you, you might have to slip someone a hundred, or even a thousand, dollars without them realizing until you're long gone.
I'm just a big fan of stories where the protagonists are constantly moving from place to place.
