adding to Mr Bournes comments there is the storm priest who sprouts foliage
from his lungs, reference forgotten, &an 85 year old NPC with alzheimers &
senile dementia in Gaumata's Vision. Granted these are all a consequence of
living not inherited deformities.
If Ms Williams arguements for Ernaldan abilities to correct congenital
deformities are taken as true how do they affect the birth of ogres? Given
the comeliness of an ogre one could expect those in human society to produce
the odd child outside their own supervision. If this child is then subject
to Ernaldan normalising magic does it become human?
BTWgreat idea for SC ensuring its own racial purity. I'll steal that. Maybe
that's why old Ironpike is so keen to dye his beard as well, black hair
marks him as a freak who could not be blessed (an Ogre???)

Mr Ferro writes about Lares & Pentaes.
I am currently populating the Amad area of Far Point with a great swarm of
spirits (one under every stone) including stead spirits of various sorts.
For this I have found A Field Guide To The Little People very useful as it
gives a 1 or 2 page precisis of each being which can often kick off G.
ideas. Also Mr Hughes published a great artical in Questlines called Spirits
of the Far Place which deals with Orlanthi stead spirits among others.

 Mr Metcalfe postulates heritable traits without DNA
Perhaps children inherit spirits or totems from their parents which
influence the way they look & behave. Thus deformities could be caused by
attacks on either totem spirit & Ernaldan Eugenics could be a way of healing
or protecting a child's totems.
