THE DOCTOR IS IN! (Five Cents)

(Muted Hurrah)

I have a few questions, mostly trivial. One of which is this -- are the Humakti Geases stackable? They seem fairly obnoxious if they are, especially if one uses a slower PendragonPass-ish passage of time (a few adventures a year). The differnece between a % based system and an AP based system can be dramatic in this instance.

Also, in the new Heortling Keywords, there was no Urox? He being saved for later?

If Initiates cannot buy the feats of their god but can get the feats of a subcult, that seems... wierd, especially if one treats something like Hedkoranth as a Subcult of Orlanth. Or is Orlanth Adventurous considered a subcult as well? I admit, it seemed simple until I started thinking about the matter....
