I totally agree, I just simply couldn't come up with a better name!
Can yee good folks suggest a better name for the attack?
What we have so far:

Luca
-"Energy Drain"
-range: 1
-PsP cost: 6
-enemy health reduction formula (psy attack+ attack level/2 )
-effects: reduce max enemy health

Learnable at circa level 12 Psy Attack.
Explanation: "Luca figures out how to drain/dissipate energy from her victims, making them physically weaker." Not unlike Zem the Reaper's attack. More subtle, hence requires more skill.  


(Great, we have 4 "yay" so far!)

I thought about that- but then we are not draining the soul here- soul drain is a synonym for soul suck really. I guess we're looking for synonyms of words like "vitality" and "sap/drain/suck" or "decrease", a continuous process, which does not terminate- that would be the best, methinks.

Ooh,ooh
Psy bridge, Set

Allows a charachter to walk over objects, essentially flying set has learned how to create a barrier horisontally so that orhers can walk on it.

Allows one charachter to walk over objects for one turn.

Or "Draw Life" or "Life Suck"... "Life pull", "Vivacity Drain"?

Sounds too much like Facebook.

Psy bridge may be too complicated to code, but the idea is interesting.

So, Duckling, is that a "yay" for the idea?

Hehe, "vivacity drain" equated to facebook, interesting!

PS
"fatigue"?
"stamina exhaust/deplete/diminish"?

That's a yay. Bosses shouldn't generally have attacks that can't be at least mimicked at a smaller scale by players in Telepath.

What? "Facebook"? Maybe not.

How about "spirit leech" or "spirit drain"?

(I doubt that Craig would do that. w.r.t. facebook)

I can't say I fully agree with that name. While it is shorter, and more in keeping with the Telepath naming style, it also doesn't (in my opinion) capture the meaning well. I associate Spirits with Souls, and Soul suck with Psy.

Mental Fatuige. Mental fatigue leads to a lapse in defense due to lack of concentration. Name idea. Like? Or dislike?

Psy drain maybe? Too bad drain is already used. Edit: I didn't realize it drain max health, not psy points, so I vote nay.
