Hi, I've posted this in the Magic World forum but I do suppose it applies to spirit magic in Rune Quest as well. If a character is attacked by a Disease Spirit and loses the MP vs. MP struggle, they are then possessed by the spirit and suffer the effects (wasting disease loses STR, brain fever loses INT). I suppose two questions spring to mind: Can the infected/possessed character fight off the disease spirit through mundane medicine or natural remedies? When cured (either by Healing Spirit or Physik or Potions, if possible) what happens to the lost characteristic points? Are they gone forever or do they regenerate over a period of convalescence? (Perhaps one point per week up to one point lower than the original level.) What I'm looking at is a 'race against time' scenario, where an important NPC is possessed and starts losing characteristic points. The PCs are tasked with finding the cure. I'd love to hear any suggestions. Thanks, Colin
