Came across this again while searching for something else. Love the details on these creatures and the 3 strains bred for specific purposes. Have to quote manfred just to repeat, "A creature that indirectly defines the Hanaset."
Also a fan of the whole "dear reader" tone as you know :)Go to Comment
I am also of the mind that there should be some sort of contest as to the spell snatching. Additionally, if it uses spells like a scroll is the page of the book consumed as well once it is re-cast? If the lesser item is fairly common I would imagine there are some good stories and fluff that this entry could have. Otherwise I really like this idea, and think the 'greater' version is where the ingenuity lies.
