I suppose that's my cue...

Yes, it was before auto-augments were nailed down.

And Charles is pretty much correct, it's an amalgamamamamam of a group of different abilities/magic under one header. I'm not sure how Greg came up with 14 (he may have just pulled it out of his bu... thin air), but the 14 (and the "noisy" and "Undefoot" descriptions) came from him.

His Trickster abilities would provide -2 per augment nowadays, so you might want to reduce the -14 to -6 or -8.

I suppose someday I'll be tasked with re-doing the stats...

It is by my order and for the good of the state that the bearer of this has done what he has done.
