[Runequest] Extreme Cases

To test ideas, I like to stretch limits. So, consider a situation that is seldom in any RQ publication: parents from different backgrounds. A strong candidate would be a non-inheriting son from the union of an Issaries priest and a Daka Fal shaman. Oh, both Illuminated. Granted, there could be great persecution against such a couple, but less so if the Illumination is hidden and both cults are generally respected. Or they live in Lunarland.

The adventurer would grow up with large parts of all three disciplines, if not everything: he will not inherit, so he gets trained for a life on his own. He sees the differences between the disciplines and starts dabbling in sorcery, perhaps with parental guidance, and learns some basics on his own.

 So, at an early age (perhaps 15-ish), he "simultaneously" becomes Illuminated, an Issaries priest, a Daka Fal shaman and a Sorcerer.

Given all that, your thoughts please?

Don't you ever miss the days when you used to be nostalgic?

PS. Oh, he was a "seventh son of a seventh son born under a caul". He is ALWAYS lucky - whatever that means.
