Re: Infinity, Stasis, Magic in S:KoH
I wonder about the Malkioni and the Law Rune. Would all of them have it, by the way? Or do all Wizards have it (I seem to recall some interesting attempts to match castes to runes...)? A whole different topic, I suppose, but still fascinating.
But if it's common enough then I wonder if converting to a Western religion requires getting the Law Rune.

> The write up in Pavis makes it clear that it's easy to swap one of your runes for a Moon phase (and also easy to swap it for the Chaos rune). You don't need a quest, a simple ceremony will suffice. If you read a lunar grimoire, it may happen against your will!
