Wait a minute, a Nega-mage hunting bugs?

Aren't the bugs just going to crawl under a rock, and hide till he's
gone? Like normal spirits appear to?

And eventually they'll just get their flesh-forms to push rocks on him
or use guns like everyone else.

Q: What happens if a nega-mage touched a flesh-form, they have a spirit
invested in them, could living nega-mage tissue (yuck, don't ask
where they get it from) be grafted onto a flesh-form, and thus drive
the flesh form out? What about blood donor nega-mages.

Needless to say, it's not an official addition, use it if you want, but
be prepared for players with akward questions (as always).

I personally think that the stories of 'mundanes' defeating dragons are
due to a higher proportion of active mages, using simple spells like
anti-fire barrier to kick said dragon's butt. Especially if it's stupid
enough to hibernate in a tight, enclopsed space like a cave, where it can
only just move, and even a guy in plate armour can run rings round it.
