Not personally, but a PC in an old game, Derak the Dark Troll, was possessed while Spirit Binding and the possessing Spirit succeeded on a Divine Intervention and bugged out with his new body. The PC also succeeded in a Divine Intervention and Zorak Zoran couldn't give him his body back or bring his body back but did put his spirit into the nearest available host - a trollkin. It took him a good few game sessions to track down his body and get the spirit out.

So have I.

I used to give attack and defence 1D3 per 20 POW, but now I give 1D3 + 1 per 10 POW or part thereof for attack and defence as it is easier to work out and faster to roll. Attacker and defender roll a Spirit Combat skill, doing/blocking damage according to the roll and any not blocked come off MPs.
