Can they be hurt? By normal weapons or other toons, and can they die? And if they can, do they come back.

Actually... I forgot, where do they come from? Can more be created/made/be born?
This reminded me of a short article I wrote for All Of The Above, the GURPS APA, some years back: a Memory Store, which is basically a way for illusions and creations (like a created servant) to have a persistent memory between castings. For example, a mage who always casts Create Servant every morning and dismisses it every night. With a memory store, the Servant would remember common commands, know how the mage likes his tea, etc.

Now, imagine toons to be the ultimate expression of Illusion/Creation magic: a sapient, free-willed Illusion (or Creation with a lot of Illusory extra effects), cast at 100 times the cost to make them permanent. Whatever is casting/creating these guys could be an adventure or campaign seed. The most unkillable of these have their memories bound up in memory stores, enchanted to re-cast their forms when the body is destroyed.

This would make toons mana-dependent, but that's not really a bad thing..
