Yep,.  But new folks new to game may need a few words on it in teh
file.  So Wout and us can sit down and figure that out if need be.
Like is it a temp possession or unconscious one or does he have
powers through the gods, etc.

Arawn?  Well in my view not really.  But it could be argued.

Well Farseeker is only one to have such Agility.  There is background
on that as well.  But I like the table.  Have you seen the v2 stuff?
Wout revamped them a bit.  I like for balance the bad stuff with good.
I think I like the risk.  A limp or a missing eye.  To me that's
more a challenge to role play than a guy with super powers.  So i
appreciate teh bad stuff.  It does ay optional to take the risk.
Why I liked Fantasy Hero or Gurps for the liabiltiies.
Makes fun games.
