[Bloat] YAVP: AsFn of Gozag (3 runes, no resistances)

Would you fancy a game with no resistances? Play an Astral in Bloatcrawl! They are unable to gain any resistances. To compensate, they get clarity, see invisible and wings and their melee attacks reduce the MR of the target. They also have innate wizardry, but I don't think it works, because wizardr...

I wonder if a god for ranged combat could be in vanilla as well. There's no ammo anymore and only one ranged combat skill, so Ihp'ix wouldn't be compatible as it is. But a god that would buff ranged combat and gift launchers would be interesting I think.

Being faster than a monster is a very powerful ability. So if you would make e.g. elves faster, you should balance them by making them weaker in some other sense.
