 I meant to say, why would it not want to have those nifty power-legs.
 And a iron mostali could have a hammer-hand, with steam-powered
 hits it could _nail_ the opponents down. It's efficient, it's mostali.

 True. IMO, lunar magic should have something to do with the caster's
 illumination, and it's effects should also hit the brains.. we do not

 want another bleedin' bladesharp, we already have two!

 Good idea, again. And the categories would have different power levels...
 That would make specialization much more sound option. There has to
 be some cantrips, still, for spells like Light and Ignite.

 Let's use the good old POW to be one, and caster skills can drop
 the amount of MP's needed. On the other hand, we could have levels
 to the mages... and spells activated with xp! (Teehee, silly me...=)

> questions to be answered before going any further in creating

 Shame, if these good ideas are wasted, since there is no creator
 for future Gloranthan system in sight.. someone Very Important
 Person ought to save these, and give to that lucky game designer.

 The God of Hellfire. You can call me Passo.
