It's not that bad, Gerund is just pointing out what the things in the fiction would be under the actual Changeling rules. As far as I remember nobody in the fiction actually calls things Tokens or discusses Fetches and Wyrds except in context.

Midnight is pretty much Dr. Mid-Nite without the reverse sight gimmick, and Dr. Geistmann is so Ultra-Humanite it hurts. I will state that Seawolf is at the same time both the most unique and the most Golden Age super character.

Thri-Keen wish they could step to the Kch-Thk.

Also,I seem to remember something similar to the Vas Kra becoming the Vas Mal happening in one of the later Lensman books.

Isn't the entire point of Werewolf that every tribe sows the seed of it's own idiotic destruction, but why change horses midstream?

That's why it's my favorite solution. Instead of being impossible, it's a huge and probably campaign spanning effort.

With people doing Night's Black Agents and Ashen Stars, would anybody be interested in a review of Mutant City Blues? If you've ever read Powers, it's Powers. If not, imagine Law and Order but sometimes you can get a warrant to read people's minds and figure out how many perps were involved in a crime by what superpowers were used. Also crippling mental issues!

Between the Guinevere art and the "Arthurian Aliens" angle, it sounds like Siembieda is ripping off DC Comic's Camalot 3000. Which, to be honest, isn't the worst thing to rip off.

The important thing to remember about Clan Books in oWoD (All the specific organization books, in fact) is that they lay out what the Clan believed happened in history. They are all resolutely bullshit, because it's thousands of years of built up propaganda and games of telephone. It's way more important to see why they think certain things happened. The Children of Gaia, for instance, are complete morons.

Yup. In the original story a guy gets tries to escape the hounds by turning his room into an egg shape, which works until a bit of plaster gives way and boop he's gone. The Hounds are the Time Cops of the Mythos, blind hungering things that exist in the avenues of time that you travel when you go backwards.
