:There are some capitalized letters, so you might not want that, but if people would prefer that, we can switch.  If you roll first, that tells you how many successes you have to use, so I recommend doing it in that order.  I... um, I can't figure out why you would guess without rolling, we wouldn't fill in anything if you didn't have any successes... --[[User:Boojum|Boojum]] 17:55, 19 February 2011 (UTC)

This bit at the end of the first quoted section looks to me like some sort of ritual incant, what with the parallel structure and whatnot. If one were invoking some sort of triune assemblage of which 'spirit' was the third part, would the first two parts be 'body' and 'mind'? [[User:屳鍁韯褼襳先苮馦枮忺韱奾廯暹纎嘕鱻仚祅蹮|Xian]] 21:43, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
