Of course, Lunars always are a bit weird, but that still leaves the others:) Was this an oversight? My big, fat guess is that it is in Makor's case, but I'm less certain about Tolkazi's.

No, both are deliberate. Makor gets his grimoire rating from his Stonemason keyword, any spells are of course breakouts. The Flintnail grimoire is inherently tied to the stonemason profession. Tolkazzi's grimoire rating is from his Full moon phase, there was a slight jiggle in the final character sheet to fit it in, so it should look like this:

What the Eye does not see (illusion/full moon phase) 1W Irripi Ontor Moon Phase

	(illusion) The object that does not exist

Grimoires can be be keywords, but not in these cases. One of my aims with the characters was to show how the system can be adapted, changed and mixed up.
