    So here is a rough breakdown of the chapters and appendix. But I'm looking at it and I got a lot of research to do.

    Ottawa by Night
    1) History
    2) Modern Night
    3) City Tour
    4) Ottawa outskirts (nearby point of interest and the Rideau Canal)
    5) Night under Siege
    6) Who's Who
    7) Outsiders (Laibon, Kuei-jin and Ashirra)
    8) Victorian Era Ottawa

    Appendix:
    I) Necropolis: Ottawa . (WtO, WtGW & Orpheus)
    II) Rage Across the Ottawa Valley (includes a couple Native reservations, 2 or 3 National parks and a Nuclear site - Fera included). (WtA & WtWW)
    III) Mystic Ottawa (MtA)
    IV) Freeholds of the Valley (CtD)
    V) Hunting Grounds: Ottawa (HtR)
    VI) Ottawa: Bastion of Unspeakable Knowledge (DtF)
    VII) Undying of Ottawa (MtR)

    *Titles in Italics are open for suggestion/change.

      Mystic Ottawa, maybe. (Not all that splashy, but it is my default for Mage when I can't think of anything better.)


      What is tolerance? It is the consequence of humanity. We are all formed of frailty and error; let us pardon reciprocally each other's folly. That is the first law of nature.

        That could work, concise and better the Chantries (which technically exclude Technocracy).

        Edit:
        Hmm how about: Mystic & Rational Ottawa?

          Well, I have always generally used "mystic" as a catch all term for anything and everything associated with Mages, the Awakened, Sphere Magic/Science etc., including the Technocracy. (Sometimes it's easy to come up with a good Mage title; If I'd had my way in an alternate universe, Mage's second city book would've been Halls of Power: Washington DC and Guide to the Technocracy would've been immediately followed by Loom of Fate: Las Vegas as a Union focused setting book.)

          Changeling wise, I'm not sure if the C20 material gave a name to the Ontario Duchy. There probably isn't a canon name for the Barony of Ottawa, so you can make up your own and entitle the Changeling appendix Barony of [Name].

          Regarding the overlap between Wendigo, Nunnehi, and First Nations Mages, it may be worthwhile to present the Werewolf, Mage and Changeling sections of each as a default of "this is how it is with just Group A (the subject of this appendix), but this sidebar is how it might be if you are also using Group B and/or C."

          Also, IIRC, the Wraith book Mediums: Speakers with the Dead includes a chapter that talks a bit about the Dark Kingdoms of Flint which may be of use for Ottawa's Necropolis and surrounding areas.

            You could go with Willworker Ottawa, as mages work magick through their practices and their force of will. If you are talking mostly about First Nations mages, who will likely be Dreamspeakers or other more shamanic types (though a Native American who is a Technocrat is plausible), you could use

            'The First Peoples of Magick And the Precepts of Damien Dominion Guys' to refer to the mages with pre-Columbian forebearers who lived in the Americas and those mages who are Technocrats. Technocrats follow the Precepts of Damien and well, Canada is a dominion. . .

              That make sense and I love those names. Strangely for Ottawa, despite having our Federal Government (and the HQ of most of our Departments), 4 university, 5 or 6 colleges, about 10 different museum and multiple festivals, and finally a linguistic/cultural and provincial barrier rolled into 1 river, I can't seem to find anything better that City of Contrast: Ottawa.

              I've check over on the Changeling board. The area straddle the birds of 2 Duchy and Ottawa has a Freehold. I'll be expending on this for sure.

              That is an excellent idea, I had not thought of it. Thank you.

              Good point. I have Medium so that's a good start. It would be quite fitting to add it to the book alongside the Stygian Wraith.

              I might also add a Vixpctorian Ottawa Chapter, in case someone feel like trying a different era for the city.
