I really liked an interpretation I read ages ago that the WOD is what the Sidereals saw when they did the Great Prophecy in the First Age. If they did nothing, Creation would eventually devolve into the WOD. So they said "Hell no" and got to scheming. Either way, I really like the easter eggs even though I left the WOD behind ages ago (Exalted was partially to blame for this). In any case, I've run a number of campaigns in both lines and I tend to leave subtle easter eggs in the Exalted games that reference Lore from my past WOD games.
