So now there's three spirits in one body (a trinity!).
The current dominant spirit is Balastor
The suppressed second spirit is Acklery, the Librarian
And the suppressed suppressed third spirit is Zammon, the Storm Bull
When will it end? When *can* it end?
At the moment I'm having fun thinking of opportunities for the other
spirits to bring themselves out of the situation. But there's nesting
For example, if Balastor picks up a Storm Bull holy item I might allow
Zammon to attempt to break free. But does this mean he engages Balastor in
spirit combat directly or does he have to shake off the control from
