That's basically what the bit I quoted above says. If a Talisman has 200
SP as part of its cost, we assume that to mean that you need to use a Soul
or a group of Souls whose values sum to 200 or more.

I'm worried about the other direction: if more classes are made, Priests
may become rare, and suddenly it'll be very difficult to get your soul

Maybe we should allow players to give Souls to other players? So that if
no priest will help you, you can pay some other player to track your soul
down and bring it to you?

Makes sense. I can see how it'd be a real pain for Death, though.

Oh, that's a good point. Ok, forget what I said and I'll try to come up
with fixed alternate prices in a prop later.
