      I’d have a more detailed write up but I need to get a new computer and I am only using my phone now.

      It is a time for great deeds!

        For whatever reason, the original contracted author couldn't/wouldn't turn in a manuscript, so Developer Ethan Skemp and Vampire Developer Rob Hatch had to write it at the last minute. Strangely, something similar happened with the first edition Euthanatos book for Mage, with Phil Brucato having to write most of the book with help from Kathleen Ryan. (I won a copy of Euthanatos in an AOL contest and Phil Brucato was nice enough to sign it for me, with a caption under the dead man on the Wheel of Fortune tarot card reading "This is what this book almost did to me.")

        The weird thing was that all of the other splat books dealing with groups who interacted with Wraiths were written by Developers. Justin Achilli, who'd just started as Dark Ages Developer, wrote the Giovanni and Cappadocian clan books, and Wraith Developer Richard Dansky wrote the Sluagh kith book and the Corax breed book. This lead to a minor joke that clearly Wraith had some sort of curse around it, requiring all those books to be written by a Developer.

        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.
