Player ghost spellpower

When a player ghost casts a spell, are ghost's spellpower, MP and success chance based on the morgue or what? Do ghosts ever fail to cast spells?

Could my TrBe learn fire storm, die and then spam it as a ghost?

Re: Vampires: minor feature request

Same problem on characters with gourmand. If I want to eat only up to very full (so I can still eat mutagenic chunks) auto-eat takes me to engorged. I've turned off auto-eat for now.

EDIT: Since mutagenic chunks give no nutrition, why can't they always be eaten?

I had a good game going, with some luck with mutations. In all my other 15-rune games, I didn't have this much trouble with Antaeus. I should have been as cautious as I was against Ereshkigal.

25 points for a win in which you become the champion of Ru and then abandon Ru before entering any branches other than the Temple and the Lair (HERETIC banner III).


That should be Spiteful III and the points should be listed under Banners.
