In some cases it will occur when a Cleric is on a mission and his god decides to aid him. It is permissible, however, for characters to Channel to each other It is important to note that the spells a “channelling” spell user acquires normally through worship and the use of intrinsic power points are not subject to this rule. Similarly, the acquisition of Channelling skill will not allow others to gain a “Channelling” spell user`s intrinsic spell ability. This skill applies to extraordinary channelling.

-Transmitting power points: Normally Channelling consist of transferring power points from one character to another. The sender expends the power points and multiples this number of power points by his channelling skill rank bonus expressed as a percentage. (e.g. a sender with a 60% channelling skill bonus, and expending 20 power points actually channels only 12 = 60%x20) Treat channelling abilities of greater that 100 as 100, and round down the resulting power point. This is the number of point sent. The receiving character multiples the number of points sent by HIS channelling skill rank bonus. This result is the number of points received. Power points has to be from same realm.

-Transmitting Spell: Spells may be channelled in rare cases. If the receiver is of the proper spell realm, the sender may cast spells through him. It is not necessary for the receiver to know how to cast the spell; he is not required to do any of the work. The spell is cast and the power point expended by sender. The power points are subject to same rules as Transmitting Power Points. The spell may not be cast if it depends on the receiving character to provide any of the power points; nor may the spell be cast by one individual while power points required to cast the spell are channelled by someone else.

-Burnout due to Channelling: Successful Channelling can be dangerous. Roll 1-00 and add the number of power points received (this die roll is open-ended). Subtract the skill bonus in Channelling of the receiving character. If the result is over 100, a burnout has occurred.
