	Yup.  It could be that too... (:  I was just trying to change
their portrail away from the "All Knowing Near Godlike Helm Creators" to
something a little more... weak (?).  The group/individual that "controls"
them could have just as easily chosen the dohwar as their Helm sellers.
*That* becomes the arcane secret of helm design, that they actually
don't have a clue as to how they really work... (:  It's all just an act.

	I know that it's getting away from their TSR protrail, but not
by too much.  The way the books present them is not how they *are*, but
how they *portray* themselves.  "Ignore the man behind the curtain!"
