You can get a lot of physical powers from animism, too. And I think
it fits better - the mystics get their physical powers from training and
control over their bodies, I would think the Taran mystics get their
physical powers from allowing other powers (animal powers, wilderness
powers) to enter in their bodies (which is pretty close to spirit
integration, giving Talents). They are becoming not the peak of human
achievment like the martial artists, they are becoming true creatures of
the wild. They aren't, for example, seeing like a well trained human being,
but like a hawk.
I'd probably go for animists with a mystic secret.
Nice thread, guys. Sorry that this is just a rules heavy suggestion
not a real contribution to your discussion.
