        If the rulers of Basim still actively practice Basmol
worship, I'm sure they still get their transformation magic. The
Basmoli of Prax do, and there hasn't been a lion seen in the Wastes
since the Great Darkness.
        Lions might be born to Basmoli mothers, but I suspect they
are born dead (or sterile, at best). In any case, I do not believe
that _all_ Hsunchen peoples give birth to their totem animals and
vice versa. In fact, I think this is a fairly rare occurrence. I
believe, for instance, that among the Fronelan Rathori, cross-births
only occur on ceremonial occasions.
