So I just read the Charisma rune spell properly and it sank in: it doubles your CHA. And increases your Spirit Magic learnt-cap. While it notes that the limited duration of a Temporal spell might make this latter increase somewhat academic, the ease of Extending the spell up to a year's duration prompts two questions: What happens when the extra CHA goes away? Do you just forget the Spirit Magic? Can you overwrite your Charisma before its anniversary to avoid there being any hiatus in your improved score? Does this improvement also increase your limit of Rune Points per Cult? I guess that's asking for an interpretation as to whether the text simply omits mentioning Rune Points as an oversight. And that leads to a followup question: if your Charisma spell does increase your potential pool of Rune Points, what happens to those points greater than your natural CHA if your spell lapses somehow (is dispelled or you just can't get it re-cast in time)? Do they vanish for good, or just become unusable until your CHA goes back up? This same question applies to normal CHA loss; I couldn't find anywhere that mentioned it. As a GM with liberal tendencies I'd be inclined to allow the increased CHA to do whatever natural CHA would do, thus permitting increased Rune Point pools, and I'd have the character's Deity hold any surplus Rune Points generated by CHA loss (for whatever reason) 'in trust' until CHA increased again. Spirit Magic would be forgotten though; that seems pretty clear, though I would allow overwriting up to the anniversary day too, in order to preserve the benefits.
