Greetings and Salutations

Hi all,
We are running a play by mail HeroQuest game on and are currently undergoing recruitment and character generation. Several of the posters are new to HeroQuest and Glorantha. We have hit a snag already as there doesn't seem to be a simple breakdown of the 20 point spending a chargen. Namely the 3 points you spend to become a devotee instead of an Initiate.

Is there a clear list like the HP spending one? Is there one on-line?
I am at work now so I am away from my books.

This is one answer from the thread.

Affinities (all at 17), augments only, no active use, Magic: Named Feats can be improvised at -10, -5 if magic is concentrated, Magic: Common magic feats can be used actively if magic concentrated.

Automatically Concentrated, no Common magic, Magic: Affinities (all at 17), Magic: Feats (all named at 17), feats can be used actively, feats can be improvised from affinity, Magic: Secret (Only if 1W2 in all three affinities).
