[Runequest] How many spirits can you fit in one body?

Maybe I wasn't clear.
1. The 'Librarian' probably would not have been interested in adventuring
in the first place. If he was 'dominant', so long Storm Bull Adventurer
until the party exorcised him.
2. Balastor, much like only having one spirit in a binding enchantment,
would have expelled the 'librarian' as the dominant spirit...the Librarian
would be out.
IMO, This situation should not have happened as the 'librarian' probably
would not have joined the party, the party would not like the spirit
dominating their friend, the storm bull worshipper dominated by the
librarian would have ONLY crappy weapon skills...none of the former Storm
Bull skills, etc. However, much like a healing spirit...once exorcising the
other spirit, the disease/librarian would be out.
It sounds like the situation is multiple binding opportunities for the Storm
Bull w/out binding enchantments or real drawbacks.
>From the examples in the book, possession is done by only one spirit and the
mortal creature's spirit is the only one that is subdued. Any other spirits
are simply expelled.

Yes, the librarian was a Yelmalio worhsipper.. And with poor weapon
skills. And didn't have much of a choice about going to the Rubble (cf.,
Welcome to the City scenario for Pavis).
Balastor on the other hand..
The party typically has a least one "librarian" type character. They're
excellent at mapping, reading ancient tomes in strange languages, speaking
to weird races, world lore issues etc.

Balastor is pretty much alone in Pavis. The party that "found him" seem
friendly enough. He's going to assert his claims at Pavis temple and
they'll probably be glad to see the back of him when he wants to
re-establish old Pavis..
Doesn't really resolve the nesting problem of the dominant spirits tho'...
