Hi Dave,

Hmm, bit of both I think. My plan is to help them create new characters and then beef them up to reflect how long they've been around.

So Waha provides feats like gods do? I was uncertain about that. I'd envisioned animist cultures as still following gods but with lots more spirits access. Are charms one use or multi-use? I hope they don't have to be reloaded like fetishes were.

It does, thanks.
