A man who Knows All about the cornils can break the rules, AFAIC*.

In "Dragon Pass", the Alchemical Transformer (known as the "Alchemical
Transmogrifier to those in the know, if you know what I mean) has the
wonderfully special effect of doubling the Range or Magic Factor of any
magical unit stacked with it. What's that mean "in Glorantha"? I dunno:
ask the Dwarf.

: parts were loaded on sturdy wagons, which were drawn by blind cave oxen=
: and it was tended by devoted human worshippers.
