    "Where the Sworn (by and large) wish to contain or destroy the Contagion riddling the Earth, its people, and the God-Machine, the False choose to weaponize it, take their destructive aims too far and commit acts of genocide against innocents, or fully embrace the coming end of the world (as we know it)."

    While the sentence can be read as "contain or destroy the Contagion riddling the Earth, [contain or destroy] it's people, and [contain or destroy] the God-Machine" I think it's supposed to be read as "contain or destroy the Contagion riddling the Earth, [riddling] it's people, and [riddling] the God-Machine".
    So the Sworn does not lump them together.

    And yet, the God Machine is called out as opposing the Contagion and even saying that the G-M might even be afraid of the Contagion.

    I'm excited that you can have insatiables as allies (though the begotten probably would not be happy about that)

    I can only think of the possibilities such as quashamallin and strix, demons and angels, idigram and mage, and maybe even the god machine and gentry

    I think it’s interesting that the sworn lump in the contagion with the god-machine. It makes sense. If you want to get demons involved. But it’s an interesting point to lump them in together.

    Kind of like Promethean's Centimani are “kind of” a Refinement? That is, mechanically equivalent, but conceptually opposed? A sort of “anti-Vector”?

    The False get access to a... kind of Vector

    I asked before where the Vectors come from, and I don't recall getting an answer. If Vectors are in some way a manifestation of the Contagion, then it would make sense that the Crucible, being virulently opposed to the Contagion, wouldn't have a Vector.

    True, but anything is good at this point

    Also I did think something was missing, isn't the vector question supposed to be after the contagion as a disease section

    Eh, it doesn't really tell us anything we didn't already know, though.

    EDIT: back on point, anyone notice there's no mention of a Vector with the Crucible?

    So we've had a look at one of the Sworn, now here's our first look at one of the False, the Crucible Initiative.

    I hope at least for some Story Seeds section on each CoD 'subrealms' interpretation - adding some small mechanical twist for each would be golden. Like, I dunno, maybe Gauntlet Contagion rendering it slowly open ( as Rats are connected with disease ) or something. You can still have multiple those effects on various 'subrealms' - so one Contagion is taking at Gauntlet AND Flux, for example.

    Nope. It's the author's call right now. We're not discussing table implementation. We're discussing an unreleased product.

    Having the Contagion be Abyssal or not both have advantages for Mage; the former obviously makes things easier to focus on Mage, while the latter allows people to gleefully merge and mix up the two phenomena to churn out whatever fortean horrors they can think of.
