    I wonder if they could’ve served Obtenebration better by making it a series of Potence (+Obfuscate?) Amalgams. And leave Abyss Mysticism as (out-of-Clan-but-still-)Lasombra-flavored Necromancy, one that focuses on the deep Tempest realms itself more than its inhabitants and visitors.

    I like how Mementos are peppered across slasher profiles. They're the perfect match for crossovers in hindsight.

    From what I observed, the Begotten are essentially Thallain and/or Denizens from CtD, but with Kithain ‘genes’ that connect them much more firmly to humanity.

    The Lost, meanwhile, are more closer to the Wan Kuei than the Kithain. Except they escaped from Wonderland and Neverland instead of Hell, and aren’t arbitrarily bound to a specific culture....

    Mmm, never heard of the word Rainbow Body before. Must be not from Mahayana, I guess.

    Still, I can’t help but think the Undying are better fit as Buddhist-derived, as opposed to Daoist-derived, for some reason… Maybe my head associates the latter too much with the Wan Kuei. Plus, I feel a Buddhist base would give them a more visible connection to European lands, than a Daoist base would do....

    No Daoist beliefs related there - at least, none that I'm aware of. We were more likely to perceive the mysterious absence or inexplicable disappearance of the corpse as a sign of immortal ascension, rather than perfectly preserved corpses. At least one real-life historical figure is attributed to having done this, and he's currently a spiritual symbol of sorts for what little of seriously practicing Korean Daoists that remain.

    On topic: personally the Sokushinbutsu feels more apt as a "Asian Undying" splat, even though they're limited to Japan. In-universe, you can say...

  • Temporal sympathy could weaken, similar to how the Awakening weakens temporal sympathy between pre- and post-Awakening selves....
