  • Two things:

    ​1. Given that humankind has (to an extent) removed itself from having ties to the spiritual / natural world and/or (to an extent) been cut off from the spiritual world... I would think that spirits of domesticated animals would be rarer in the Umbra and even Penumbra than those of wild animals, and also weaker as well.

    ​2. I'd expect a domesticated animal spirit's relationship to humans to be less a subservient one than a symbiotic one, like that of a City Father. A City Father could not exist without the humans that are the heart and soul of the city......

  • ​A little off topic, but at the risk of offending somebody's political sensibilities, I think an entire plot could be developed around "the real reason" FBI Director Comey was abruptly removed from office (and without any replacement lined up in advance).

    ​Trump is of the Wyrm....

  • ​Trying to out-litigate the feds is idiotic. The U.S. Government has more lawyers than anyone else (even in the World of Darkness).
    If I were a Pentex lawyer, I'd be more afraid of a RICO prosecution.

    Justice Department likes to make examples of people (the sort where people get enough consecutive sentences that they are not eligible for parole for 300 years). It's much better for deterrence. Also, Justice has too many lawyers running things. You're thinking of the CIA....

  • ​Probably about the same. Criminal prosecution for espionage if possible. But failing that, they'd almost certainly show his a** the door.


    ​That would actually make for some serious complications for the Black Spirals. If the BSDs ever got too exuberant about fooling with the government (say open attacks on infrastructure or assassinations of officials), Pentex has a return address. All Justice would have to do is publicly release that all the known Pentex subsidiaries are under active investigation for enterprise corruption (perhaps fabricating and then leaking some story...

  • A. He's immune to the Delerium.

    ​B. He's got really close ties to Pentex.

    ​C. He's attuned a fetish -- which strongly suggests he's got Gnosis....

  • Honestly, probably not much. Not at first at any rate. The issue is that the vampires (in large measure as a legacy of some misunderstandings from the Cold War and even a few gong back to World War II) remain the main focus of the agency. The vampires are urban while the Garou are rural threats. Thus encounters with humans are higher for vampires than werewolves (and also the Delerium makes recalling the event harder, and if you're a human and wander down the wrong stretch of forest, you merely disappear off the face of the earth). While the SAD knows of the existence of the werewolves, that's...

  • Exactly. The idea of FBI investigating paranormal stuff would be a potentially huge political embarrassment to the organization as a whole. That said...

    ​Remember that the SAD is not a secret organization. The FBI tries not to publicize it's existence, but the average FBI agent has probably heard of it. It's purported mission is not to investigate actual supernaturals, but rather to provide the FBI at large with resources and expertise when dealing with cults and other non-traditional religious figures (which actually makes a good cover given that back in the real world the real...

  • The Glass Walkers have more ways of defeating the technology on modern investigation than most others, and also have ways of goofing up electronic communications so that tracing them back to your caern is nigh-impossible (for a human). Ultimately though, any sane werewolf would figure out pretty quickly that the Garou's motivations (going about whenever and wherever they please and killing whomever they please and destroying whatever infrastructure they please, etc.) would be antithetical to the government. That coupled with the ability for the government to hit the werewolves where they can't...

  • Vetted by the Garou or by the FBI?

    ​In the former case, I'd think even the Glass Walkers would keep the dude at arm's length at all times (probably even insisting that all communications be online rather than face-to-face). In the latter, I'd expect that the best case scenario would be a rather expedited termination-for-cause process, and worst-case, prosecution (depending upon what the dude actually did to help facilitate the Garou)....
