'Run Fast' is an example (as were the others I mentioned). The problem I was addressing is that whether the party defeats the dragonsnail or not is unimportant - its a matter of can they do so fast enough.

Augments don't feel right. The dragonsnail's combat and the tongue's run fast/escape/whatever are both something like equally important, while augmenting means one is only 20% as important as the other. This just doesn't feel right to me.
