How could you ever have a "surplus" point? Your pool is limited by your CHA, but if say your CHA is 18 and your RP pool is 18, and you put 1 point into a Truestone, then you are down to 17 and you can't get that one point back until the spell is cast from the Truestone. You can't ever have a surplus point taking you to 19 points and put one into the Truestone.

Easy - the Truestone acts like extra CHA. Kinda like a deluxe version of the powered crystal that helps you remember spirit magic.

That's an interesting alternative mechanic for Truestone but is very much not what is written in The Pegasus Plateau.

In any case, it's a daft way to use your POW. You are effectively spending 1 permanent POW to recharge a Truestone for a single use. There are better uses for that point of POW.

Except... 1-Use Rune Spells! You're going to lose the RPs anyway. This allows you to have your full RP complement, and your 1-Use spells...

 

 

(well, ok, not too many adventurers would actually have access to most 1-Use spells from their own RP Pool, but you get the idea)

Oh, I forgot to add above - wyters!

Get your local wyter to cast spells into it.

Or, those more powerful cult spirits (the ones that cost 4RPs to summon), and ask (very nicely) if they'd cast their spells into it... (or, you could - of course - just command them to... or command any spirit to cast their Rune Spells - or spirit magic, if you really wanted to, into it).

Or,  how's this for a technicality... drop your EarthPower into the Truestone... since the spell is 'cast' until used from the Truestone, you could lose all your RPs and POW to a DI, and then the Truestone-held spell would go off, saving your butt... (again and again and again).

 

Granted, that's a 1 in 100 chance... and you'd only have a couple of points of POW left... but at least your Humakti wouldn't technically be dead.
