Tex-Nology the John Wayne worshiping gun manufacturer from the CAS?

Rumor has it at night they put on chaps and conduct mysterious rituals involving tumble weeds.
You mean that isn't normal for Texans?
Nah, only a yankee could think a dude from Iowa named Marion was a real cowboy.
Or someone from outside of Alberta...

To a Texan anyone who lives north of Amarillo is a Yankee :)

Perhaps, the other reason was that blood magic in itself isnt bad.

Blood magic was a common practice of the 4th world and not shunned at, even if Life magic was preferrred. What the dragon wanted to stop was the massive use of sacrificial magic at locus made specifically to help the horrors cross.

As other pointed out, the Great Ghost Dance did as much damage... Of course, there the indians were directly taught by an half-horror.

Nine good reasons:

The Lords of the Night.


-Jn-
Ifriti Sophist
Who?

Mesoamerican Night Lords.

Tlaloc, Tlazoteotl, Tepeyollotl, Centeotl, Itztli, Xiuhtecuhtli, Piltzintecuhtli, Chalchiuhtlicue, and Mictlantecuhtli.

I haven't read enough of the source material on Aztechnology to know if it's reflected in-game (I have the rare opportunity not to GM, so I'm staying out of everything but splatbooks), but if North Amerind "mythology" has proven functional enough for a Ghost Dance, I would put the Nine Lords of the Night firmly at the top of my "Do Not Annoy" list.

If they're not in game already, as Horrors, they should be.


-Jn-
Ifriti Sophist

Not horror... But definitely passions material. Gods of old summoned by the people faith to come to their help.

Even Dragons have to eat, and someone has to make Jiffy-Pop.  ;D

Silly CanRay - Aztechnology doesn't make Jiffy-Pop.

Everyone is involved with Jiffy-Pop.  Ares makes the handle, S-K the 'pot', Renraku the lid; Evo grows the corn, Wuxing makes the oil.  Horizon does the advertising, NeoNET handles the ordering, MCT does the package assembly, and Shiawase does the shipping - to your local Aztechnology-owned Stuffer Shack who sells it.

Unless it's been stated otherwise, the DF is the trustee of the Jiffy Pop IP. I'm assuming it was licensed to Ares by Daviar to make money for herself.

There is no damn way that many goddamn megacorps are going to cooperate to that degree.

I don't care if Ghostwalker threatened to sit on all of them, that barghest won't hunt. These guys pay professional murderhobos to go kill and steal from eachother for frag's sake.

I agree. The only things you'll find that many megas all in one place together are ZOG, GOD, and the Corporate Court. And we all know how much infighting there is there.

Obviously, then, Jiffy-Pop is a product of the Corporate Court.

... geez, Canti, you really can't see a joke when it bites you on the ass, can you?

I can, but first it has to be funny.
