Close enough. The PhysMage spends as many of his Magic points as he wishes
like a PhysAd. What's left is used as his Magic Rating wrt spell casting,
etc. (Don't forget to take a geas for every two points spent!)
That's the basics. If he wishes to initiate, I believe you choose
whether to increase the magic rating or buy more powers with them.
Oh yeah, magic lost from Deadly wounds etc comes off Magic rating first, so
a really unlucky PhysMage will in effect become a PhysAd if enough points

I did too until I noticed one has to take a geas for every two points spent.
