    Book of Oblivion

    So is there any clue as to when this book will be coming out. I have seen the links here that show the two articles that describe it but those are kind of old now, and it would be nice to see an update or even a release date.

We've discussed, and while "the Hood" is common parlance in South Africa and a few other West African nations, we've added "Komboni" as an alternative name, which is the old and present name for the slums of Zambia.
    Just to give general feedback: I think the issue here was context.

    That no proper context was given for why the term was there in the Backer PDF to bring any readers not familiar with West African culture up to speed.

    Yeah, they got both.

    I presume there is a note somewhere about its impact on Werewolf crossovers?
    There is not, no.

    Although the way how it's described, my impression has always been that, despite the name, they aren't actually the materials from the Skinlands side. So if you managed to bring a True Silver weapon across the Shroud and into the Skinlands, I don't think it's supposed to work like regular silver on a werewolf.

    In general there isn't a whole lot of crossover bits, nor are they REALLY a major focus. There's some token stuff, like hinting at Mirrorlands wraiths' interactions with the Samedi bloodline, the tense relationship between Flint wraiths and Uktena werewolves, stuff like that.

    The only real substantial bit of crossover (ergo involving mechanics and setting) is the Arcane Storm. Basically, it's a Tempest non-Maelstrom storm that's caused whenever a mage dies and becomes a wraith, the act of their Avatar leaving their body creates a storm.

    ...and naturally changelings get nothing.

    Gaunts are ancient and powerful Wraiths that retain at least one Fetter. Think of them as elders or ancients in Vampire.

    True Obsidian, Jade, Gold, Turquoise, etc. are the localized equivalent of Stygian steel. An example would be the True Jade swords and other weapons of the Dark Kingdom of Jade. They are just as potent as Stygian Steel, just born of a substance more common to the region.

    Well we are using completely different methods of collecting errata...

    Using one or the other might not be too jarring, but using both together seems to magnify the peculiarity of their usage.
