In my project, I try to take the law of conservation of energy into account - nothing can just appear out of thin air. As such:
- Physical skills have cooldowns and use stamina, which goes down after taking any action. Stamina is directly proportional to the character's stats(except HP). The lower their stamina, the lower their stats, the less damage they inflict, etc. Basically, they're getting tired. Stamina naturally regenerates while being idle or taking a stamina-regenerating substance.
- Magical skills don't have cooldowns, but use both stamina and a certain physical resource with special properties. The resource is also minted as currency, meaning money can be converted to the raw material for use in emergency spells.
