The generator is supposed to be a helpful tool, not a chain - I'd go with what works best.

When I saw 'Restore Wyter' I thought that there was some sort of Save Game function - if you've screwed up, it can be restored to its orignal form.

I think I watch 'Reboot' too much. =)

In a pure 'game's sense, it probably allows the hero to spend HP to increase the wyter's abilites instead of his own. Probably at some RUINOUS rate (say spend HP to Ablity = +1 to ability) - remember one man, even one who knows a secret, is only a small part of a Wyter which is comprised of 1300 people AND their ancestors AND all the acts of will that have been done with it for the last very, very, very long time.

I like the description for Nosebiter - it is no more a spirit bound into an axe than a human is a spirit bound into a body. I misspoke too - the wyter doesn't live in the sword, it _IS_ the sword.
