From D&D Wiki
Painful Aberrant Mark
Your aberrant mark is especially painful to use.
Prerequisite: Aberrant Dragonmark(ECS)
Effect: Whenever you use your aberrant dragonmark's power, you take 1d4 damage per spell level. This cannot be resisted or negated by damage resistance or reduction. Any damage sustained by this effect can be healed naturally.
Roleplaying Ideas: Your character may decide that using the mark is dangerous and avoid using it at all or restricting its use to emergencies only.
