Don't like the curse word.

Minor, major, extrême curse.

I feel that from the description curse is not the right Word. Burden would be better and as you level up you became familiar at the border between using the power and being overwhelm by it.

Good thing to think about. Also, curses are a major part of the Witch. And having something called a curse work in vastly different ways in different places would be potentially confusing.

I also like "Oracle's Burden" as a name for the class feature.

I may have been asleep at the keyboard by calling curses a major part of the Witch. Whoops. Time to use the Neuralizer on y'all.

Having said that, I like Oracle's Burden.

I really like it as well. Especially if they don't go back to mixing and matching curses with mysteries. Pure semantics, but it makes sense more sense to me that a Life mystery would have a specific burden associated with it rather than all Life mystery oracles share the same curse (even if the exact same mechanics are used).

We can't call it Oracle's Burden because Oracle's Burden is a spell that inflicts the penalties of your curse on an enemy.

...We are getting that spell back right

With the way Curses work currently? I hope so!

The spell could be called Share the burden (or Spread the love).

This is an acceptable compromise

Incidentally, if the name is changed, that makes this spell a very logical candidate for being called Oracle's Curse.

Just sayin'.
