    Vampires and witchcraft have a substantial basis from which to address their impact on society and how one does monster-hunting on them in that context, but there's a reason Spirit Slayers split its attention between werewolves and spiritual incursion, and the rest of the monsters that have gamelines about them don't require nearly as much verbiage that wouldn't be repeating generalizable advice from Witch Finders, Spirit Slayers, Night Stalkers, and Slasher.
    Fair enough. Also, I guess with the staggering number of homebrewed compacts and conspiracies dedicated to hunting monsters besides the 'Big three' on this site and a bunch of others, making any more sourcebooks may seem a little redundant...

    Are there any plans for supplements on hunting say...Ghosts, Prometheans, or The Fair Folk, much like the supplements for the 'big 3' in 1E?

    If you're part of an organization, pursuing Status can give your cell more favored Tactics that it's more effective at, but the cost of "buying" Tactics is mostly just having the stats to pull them off.
    Thanks! I can stare at the pages all day and still miss stuff like that.

    Any hunter can perform any Tactic, provided they’re willing to risk Willpower (p. 135). However, the cells that learn how to play to their strengths will favor certain Tactics above others.

    Gotcha. Thanks. So it should read "read the number of uses as an effect instead of a cost, and then subtract the -2 cost for being consumable."

    I do not understand this sentence.

    As a homerule to the Rite of Hecate, would it be fine to allow for it to take blood Sorcery, werewolf rites, and even things like Changeling Oaths (basically anything that's more about manipulating what isn't necessarily innate, in keeping with the Rite being used to take powers that manipulate the otherworldly)

    Unless I've missed something there's no problem with infiltration. It's not a hard rule, it's a feature of the setting that the C&Cs don't allow dual-memberships.
