    I have it on good authority that Book of Oblivion will have multiple significant answers to this question.

      I hope flying ghost-squid are involved.

        For certain values of Architeuthis congruent with Spectres, perhaps?

          Giant squid-like hekatonkhire would be awesome.

              Spectres do know moliate, although I get the impression few want to get close enough to a Shade to turn them into a squid.

              Actually it's funny. My initial introduction to the spectral hierarchy was in Doomslayers (I think), so Shades came across as particularly violent and brutal Spectres. The idea that they were a special kind of Spectre whose Psyches were torn away by the Tempest was jarring when I first ran across it.

                No. It dominates most of the major cities across the Western World - Europe, and North and South America - but not elsewhere. And its power and influece is usually concentrated in the shadowlands near major cities.

                Eat a handful of mushrooms and walk into a Class 3 or stronger hurricane.

                Not normally, if you can see it below you, then you are about to fall into it.

                Unless they are using a special power, they walk.

                They should still look like ghosts.

                It varies depending on the Arcanoi. How it looks will be described, or at least implied, in the text of the Arcanoi description.

                Dis Pater, if he is in the Hierarchy, might be an asset to the Giovanni. For a price.

                  Even better if you're standing next to a waste dump full of jagged rusty metal, toxic chemicals and slaughterhouse leavings when you do it.

                    It's not that the wind is blowing, it's what the wind is blowing. And in this case, the wind is blowing showers of bone, pottery shards, eyes, and anything else you might see in a half-remembered nightmare.

                    And spectres... don't forget the spectres.

                      Unfortunately, shroomies just make me giggle. Alot. No mind altering effects to speak of.

                      But I'm starting to get the gist... hopefully it dies down soon in my chronicle or I wasted quite a few dots on Necromancy...

                        It's been a while since I read either the Great War or the fan-made 6GM materials, but as I recall Great Maelstroms don't unleash their full fury on every Necropolis at all times. Aside from everything else, that doesn't make for good gameplay or mood setting. Instead there are furious times when the winds scour the soulsteel and Shades hammer a the gates and windows, lulls where everyone scrambles to clear the effluvium and rebuild the defenses, and ominous, tense moments where everything could break loose at any time.

                        There should be times your character can navigate the shadowlands, even during the 6GM, they just have to be careful about it.
