I definitely wrote my bits of Forsaken by Rome with the idea that Uratha do their best work away from their human compatriots. As everyone has already said:
  1. Falling to Kuruth could wind up being as bad for your own side as theirs (including you, personally, when it runs out), most especially for anyone outside the legions (and legionaries without an Aquila)
  2. Armour is great, ya'll! As are Nikink's legion tactics! Organised, equipped soldiers are actually really hard to beat, even for Uratha
  3. Uratha are still rare and few in number, and a wise tactician wouldn't just throw them into the meatgrinder
