Thanks for the comments about the Gunne.  The manner in which I try to keep
it in balance is twofold...

1) The Gunne is not very mobile, unless it uses the Pao-style capture
(instead of shooting) and leaps out into possible danger.

2) The grid in Panal doesn't run straight from player to player, as it
does in most hex-games.  Shot lines are affected.
