Curious what other ideas people have.

Bought it yesterday. Very impressed.

It is not a light reading as there are lots of rules and options. But it surely gives plenty of advice and... well, options. Tons of them to build spirit characters and NPC as needed.

I do not play a fantasy or horror game without spirits so it will be very, very helpful for me.

Thanks for such a good and conscientious job!

Heh, totally suitable for a fantasy setting that features a Fungus College of magic, as suggested by GURPS Magic: Plant Spells p. 17.

Yeah, unfortunately neither is the editing.

Thanks all.
I hope to do a designers notes post this weekend. SO feel free to let me know what might be of special interest in those, from questions on what made it to what was left out or why. Or anything else.

It would be cool if the designers' notes had suggested disadvantages to go with the Devotion power modifier for different types of spirits.

Well not really a list but I hope this helps.

It is so much up to the taste of the player or GM for the specific spirit.

Who do I talk to about my comp copy? Or rather, the apparent lack of one.
