Good point. But as someone brought up earlier the very wise point that Humakt has Lay Ghost. Which would have worked just *fine* in that situation. I don't think that Lay Ghost would work against a Daimonie as they are not dead. Its the *dead* part that gets up the big guy's nose, I think.

As to regimental spirits and wyter, I'd say you're perfectly right. They are spirits who are suppsoed to be here. All is right in the world with them... If that makes sense.

Good call.
