Drains (D) consume Resources from Pools and other Nodes. They can drain Resources from multiple Nodes at the same time and at various rates.

    Resources that go into a Drain are permanently removed from your games’ economy!

    Like most other Nodes, a Drain has 4 Trigger Modes and the Pulling & Pushing actions.

    The rate of a Drain is determined by the flow rate of its input Resource Connection. Some Drains consume Resources at a steady rate, while others consume Resources at random rates or intervals.

    In the gif above, there are 3 examples of flow rates:

    1. Shooter: The Shoot Drain consumes 1 Ammo every time the player shoots.
    2. Resource Management: The player has a cost of 1 coin every 2 weeks.
    3. Brawler: During a boss fight, player takes damage anywhere between 1 to 6 Health points (D6 notion), every time the boss hits.
