  1. Some of the Plains Tribes of North America practiced "Counting Coup". This was a way of counting how many brave acts a warrior did. Quoting from Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Counting_coup): Counting coup refers to the winning of prestige against an enemy by the Plains Indians of North America. Warriors won prestige by acts of bravery in the face of the enemy, which could be recorded in various ways and retold as stories. Any blow struck against the enemy counted as a coup, but the most prestigious acts included touching an enemy warrior with the hand, bow, or coup stick and escaping unharmed. Risk of injury or death was required to count coup. In a previous game, I made "counting coup" from touching a dead enemy a real risk, as the enemy's spirit could (if it was still hanging around, % equal to enemy's POW) attack you in spirit combat and avenge it's own death. I'm not sure if I want to keep this in my game, and thought I'd solicit opinions. (a) is the appropriate for "canon" Prax. and (b) does this add to the fun of the game, or simply waste time?
