    Just the fluffiest.

      Wonderful. The word you are looking for is wonderful. Embrace your inner Hagrid.

        Being a Barghest or a Hellhound is suffering for animal. Being both is....

        Well, terrible is correct.

          A Demon as a part of a Krewe sounds like a lot of fun, particularily if the Demon is an ST-Char.

            Think of it as rescuing them from the slow doom of the Underworld! Just remember to keep them stocked in Aether-feed.

              I wonder what happens when a Promethean's Wasteland starts to take effect in the Underworld?
              Better yet, inciting a Firestorm is bound to very interesting effects, maybe even more so than usual. (In my mind, forces like The Principle and the Dark Mother, the G-M and the Underworld are the big league players that are opposed to each other to some degree. But I guess not everyone would agree.)

              Another thought: if the G-M stays away from the Underworld as much as possible as was stated earlier, don't you think there's bound to be a good reason for that? Imagine finding Castoffs of G-M origin down there...

              A Krewe with Beasts has the additional benefit that they can enter the Underworld not only via Avernian Gates (plus Beasts can force those open - another bonus) but also via the Beast's Lair: All they need is for the Beast to create a Chamber somewhere down there to gain additional accesses. And the Beast is bound to love a chamber in such an area: best way to get rid of a Hero is to send them to the great Below, don't you think?

                From the Demon Storyteller Guide p143, 'The reason anyone would bother with these dangerous realms is the same as anyplace dangerous: the secrets hidden within the Dead Dominions are long-forgotten and almost as dangerous as their guardians. Current theories suggest this is one of the reasons the God-Machine stays away from the deeper levels of the Underworld.'

                It also mentions that Angels are more likely to fall, and Demons more likely to attempt to come back to the God-Machine after spending time there.

                  Now THAT is interesting... and should be quite the deterrent for a lot of Unchained to go down below.

                  Seriously, we will need a Underworld supplement dealing with the effects it has on the other Splats.

                    Agreed. Some blue books about Cosmology would be awesome!

                      Speaking of crossover, the Dead Dominions aren't the only supernatural realm where following an agreed-upon set of rules grants stability. That's potentially of interest for someone.

                        I can see both Carthians and Ordo Dracul becoming quite intrigued (Carthians for similar applications to their Law, Dragons because Dominions are kind of like an enormous Wyrm's Nest, ruled over occasionally by an actual Wyrm).

                        Though, onto antagonists;

                        Strix: Who's this masked young turk? She seems a bit, ugh, human for your tastes, and she seems to rely on the authority of Gods you're pretty sure don't exist and definitely are sure don't care, but she seems to think those treasonous blood-drinkers are fugitives from her prison-home. Sounds like fun. She just asks you widen your palate to her own undead adversaries for a bit...

                        Pure: A new spirit has approached you, one clothed in the flesh of a mortal. A volunteer mortal who seems to exist in harmony with the deathly god powering his flesh without the mental fusion of the duguthim, already something very intriguing. Neither seem all that versed in the ways of the Shadow, but they do understand that mortals should respect the intangible much more than they do. They seek to make others respect their ancestors, you seek respect for spirits in general-an alliance seems natural. Their network, Fire-Touched evangelism...you could rule this city by the end of the year.

                        Seers: The Exarchs have spoken to you! Hallelujah! You...were not expecting the Psychopomp, but still! He chose you to help directly enforce her jurisprudence over the trapped shards of the dead, to be his holy tool in solving a problem the Thousand God-Slaves are having with their own rebels-one that is proving to have become directly annoying to the Queen of Judgement. You can't wait to start working with these loyal infiltrators of said barbarians, can't wait to see what a good word from God will do for your career...though you wish you knew why your new allies can't stop sniggering when you talk about your mission...

                          Wow, everyone seemed to like that!

                          I'll add a couple more:

                          Huntsman: What little of your mind isn't overtaken by your oh-so-beneficent master's obsession is focused on the natural order of things. There is a certain way things must be done for the world to work as it should, and to be frank after your adversary took a detour through a River City, you're not sure the Chthonic Gods are part of that order. Everything is just so...messy. The entire Great Below seems held together by twigs, spit, and sheer spite, and the Reapers don't help matters (it doesn't help their case you look upon their willing enlistment with levels of envy you didn't think was possible). So, when taking a breather, and you met a cabal of humans bound to slaugh who seem interested in codifying the laws of the Below into coherent codes of transgression, punishment, and reward, you were quite interested. The wind in your hollow chest doesn't seem to notice when you steer it to enforcing the will of the krewe as well as the Keeper, as you're still keeping to a code of laws based around manhunting. Perhaps, you can "coincidentally" find your heart if you get the right convict...

                          Slasher: You kill people. You have your reasons, good ones, just ask you, but you kill people. You were pretty surprised when several of those same people took umbrage with this and overpowered your will, steering you into the maw of a place several ghosts had disappeared...but then it turns out the local monster was more interested in dissecting those same stubborn freaks for the sake of immortality and was quite happy to let you go in return for bringing more of the stubborn to him. You went above and beyond, and are now paid for it. Do what you love for a living, never work a day in your life.

                            I can't stop thinking about the fact that:

                            1. A Doppelgänger can come about from a human experiencing a moment of trauma;

                            2. When a changeling strengthens her Mask, her shadow still reveals her true self;

                            3. Vampires don't show up correctly in mirrors or recordings;

                            and

                            4. In Iremite metaphysics, the shadow is the pillar of the soul related to death, ghosts, and one's darker impulses.

                            What could it all mean? Possibly nothing. Or maybe something important, something really important.

                              More specifically the sheut of both Iremite and Egyptian metaphysics are the silhouettes and impressions of a person as well, including statues, carvings into rocks...really, any sort of impression of a person left behind.
