I lied. We had a garage sale this weekend to get rid of excess stuff after the move. Actually we made about 300 bucks and donated close to $300 worth of stuff, and donated $500 worth of books (especially old school textbooks) to the library.
So, lots of hauling and selling. Had a bigger weekend than I expected.
I wish. Although I'm glad that the robe of useful items is finally coming back into play
So far all it's produced is a few lanterns used to burn some tree things

Okay. Let me clarify this mana burning thing.
If you run out of mana, you can still cast spells (assuming you are a mage) but using up your lifeforce(HP). This is dangerous as the HP used up will only come back with rest. One day per point loss rest. Healing magic will not bring it back.
If you use up all your HP, then you risk Wizard's Twilight. Especially if you use lifeforce and get injured in combat. For example if Fred the Fast Fingered has 10 hp left and no mana - still casts a 4th level spell. Then he is injured for 6 points - he is risking Wizard Twilight.
You recovery from Wizard's Twilight is based on constitution (System Shock) and just how low you go. Also, the more you go into WT, then more of a penalty you develop to recover again.
