-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
   Absorb builds a cloak of power around you, which reacts sensitive on the
flow of mana. As it is linked to you, your mana will increase with each
succesful spell cast on you. This empowering does not peak over your usual
maxmana though. As monks become more powerful, they realize that the physical
and the magical world are one, and so they can absorb the energy of physical
attacks as well, increasing their mana instead of losing hit points. When
the mana gets filled up like that, absorb drops. As envisioning the physical
flow as magical needs a lot of meditation by even skilled monks, absorb will
only work for the opponent you're sparring with.
