    Loved it. I don't like the fera much, but I like the idea of things similar to the uratha hidden and in small number, specially in different eras of the game.

    For instance, when Dark Eras is released I intend to adapt the Aztec Skinchangers scenario and try to build a playable jaguar race similar to the Uratha (using whatever the skinchangers get as a base). Something regional, and that is extinct nowadays. Or I plan to use it if someone else does it.

    But seeing this, I have another idea as well. If I get to play Forsaken by Rome, I think this would be a great antagonist/rival.
    Especially with the symbolism of the Eagle in Antiquity. Furthermore, in the H:tV 1e book "Spirit Slayers", there was a barbarian tribe that was almost exclusively werewolves and their wolf-blooded, and they were antagonists/sometimes-allies of Rome. Perhaps the Eagle symbolism was inspired by heavy-handed influence from secret Wind-Lord elite, who clashed with this tribe and a number of others who were heavily wolf-populated, arguing/sometimes getting in bed with the vampiric Camarilla in order to direct conquesting expansion towards the tribes' many territories....

    A wolf with eagles wings, gills and jaws and sensory organs of a shark added to it. Just give it a pick-up truck and a gun and you have the perfect hunter.

    If a werewolf and an arindhal reproduce, do you have a flying werewolf?

    I'm stealing this for a depiction of a Lune.

    To put it in perspective: in Mongolia, eagles are used to hunt everything from wolves to small deer, as Korogra said.

    I'm not sure they should. Wolves are much more "brutal" species, "licking" their wounds.

    In war form, you still have to move toward an opponent and whatnot. So you can't just fly away all the time; you're still lost to berserker rage.

    I read them once, but I never owned WaTP so I don't remember all of what they did. I didn't think they covered the full spectrum that I'd want the Arindhal to cover, though, offering the general amount of options that the Uratha do. Just as a fun little idea to play a wereraptor but without losing all the cool stuff from the werewolves.

    Yeah, the auspice names need some changin', but the ones there just work so well, it makes it tough.

    I do not like that Arindhal call themselves also "A People" - like Uratha and them meeting and they both call themselves "People". Who is then "People", in reality? Maybe other noun about mass congregation?
    They both are, really. The Arindhal are conceptually oriented toward settings where the Storyteller is okay with multiple werebeasts with spirit ties (and Harmony) exist. Not unlike a spiritual successor to the Fera. In which case, "the People" are all of those creatures who hunt the mortal and spirit worlds, wield spirit magic, and so on. In this case, Arindhal and Uratha probably are ambivalent about one another for the most part. Maybe they work together sometimes. Their territories wouldn't often overlap, and even where they did, their methods of hunting are vastly different, so they're not in direct competition.
