    But that wouldn't be a Dark Era; it would be a Mage Shard.

    Yeah; I don't have a strong opinion on what the second gameline should be (my preference for Changeling isn't a particularly strong one); but the first gameline really ought to be Mage. And if it is, Merlin should not appear — not directly.

    Merlin should be an Ascended Being, having already altered reality to cement the essence of Camelot into reality. The sudden explosion of potential Arthurs that Arcanist refers to is the result of Arthur-flavored Supernal Symbology getting woven into the fabric of reality around this time. And the Camelot that Merlin helped Arthur build as part...

    Making Beast one of the gamelines would be interesting precisely because it would predate the “Gaston is a bastard” meme that drives so much of modern Beast; it would be an era where the balance between Hero and Beast would be different than it is today. Not necessarily better; but definitely different.

    As well, the crossover nature of Beast would give a good excuse to include a (short) paragraph for every gameline not explicitly featured in the era, pointing out what's going on with that gameline and what it will eventually lead to.

    DE2: Gilgamesh discussion

    OK; so Gilgamesh is from ancient Sumeria, which pretty much necessitates one of the gamelines being Werewolf; and the nature of the Epic makes Beast a good fit for the other gameline: Gilgamesh is a Hero, while Grendal et al are Beasts. Alternately, it would be cool to see this as a Hunter/Beast era, juxtaposing what are perhaps the two most polar opposite gamelines.

    Even if the Arthurian setting doesn't win, this thread has been worth it for Arcane's info dumps alone. That said, I want it to win.

    DE2: Arthurian discussion

    If the Arthurian era gets selected in the next DE2 vote, how would you like to see it handled? I think you pretty much have to have Mage as one of the two gamelines for this era (because Acanthus symbology took on its current flavor in no small part due to a Camelot of The Time Before), though the Arthurian Era in the current iteration of reality should definitely not be the Legendary Arthur: more like the movie from a few years back, where Arthur was a Roman soldier who stayed behind when the Romans pulled out of Britain.

    For the other gameline, I'd probably go with Changeling. ...

    replied to Disparates
    As Bluecho mentioned, there's some overlap between the Traditions and the Disparate Alliance. The Order of Hermes includes House Solificati, which they assume includes most or all of the surviving members of the Children of Knowledge, a.k.a. the Solificati. The truth is more along the lines that House Solificati is an infiltration of the Order of Hermes by the Solificati. Similarly, the Templars have infiltrated the Celestial Choir; Hypollyta's Sisters have infiltrated the Verbenae; the Wu Lung have infiltrated the Akashayana; and so on.

    As for what the Disparates want: they want...
