    Personally I like geas that can be broken. To me the point of them is that the recipient has to continually choose to follow the path set down by the God.

    Yes, “Never be a parent” and “Unable to bear/father children”. The second doesn’t strike me as a geas at all. But I think that’s what Simon meant.

    Remain chaste at all times? Accept divinely sent sterility? These seem more workable and enforceable than never be a parent. Could not a Humakti become a parent through adoption which would in no way break his/her vows?

    Surely, geases are not meant to be easy?

    A Humakti with “Never be a parent” could not marry someone with children or adopt children. Tough, that’s what you get for having such a geas.

    Is Harrek a Death-Rune Superhero? Arkat certainly was, as was Yanafal Tarnils while he was mortal.

    I can see all of them having children without any problems. Their powers are in death-dealing, by the sword, club or claw, not in being a manifestation of death itself.

    Thanks, that is exactly what I meant.

    FWIW, my Humakti would have lost the ability to bear children. It was a sacrifice to place her more firmly on the path of death instead of life, not a geas.
