[[folder: Mages, Sorcerers, and Wyrm Cultists]]

* ''Werewolf: The Apocalypse'' and ''Mage: The Ascension'' are part of the same Old World of Darkness continuity. Do human Wyrm cultists from the Seventh Generation and Pretanic Order count as sorcerers? They've sworn allegiance to a powerful being in exchange for magical power, their Wyrm gifts are akin to static magic, but they lack the reality-shaping powers and the enlightened awareness of mages.

** Also might very well not work, given the destiny twisting happening around Zhyzhak.

** It's also just a numbers game; the Black Spirals are a few thousand to the human millions and most spirits have a hard time getting out of the Umbra.

[[folder:No metis with rickets?]]

* The Black Spiral Dancers raise their metis children in underground hives. Metis children generally do not venture out to the surface (and get exposure to sunlight) until after their first change. Shouldn't all those Black Spiral metis children have rickets from being raised in a dark environment?

** Spirits may be preventing her from getting radiation sickness to keep her at her strongest.




to:

** [[HonorBeforeReason Because that would be dishonourable.]] Sure the pragmatic route would be the better one but the Garou all throughout history have repeatedly fallen into the trap of taking the honourable action (by their perspective) rather than the pragmatic one.

** Because ruining the world is easy and fixing it is hard.

**Also writers operating on old, out of date information/beliefs, one of which was that coyotes are solitary animals, as opposed to wolves (who were once believed to run in ridiculously large packs.)



**As for scary-looking, any Black Spiral that is mentally competent enough to do a normal-looking job amongst normals probably isn't going to look very abnormal, either. Also keep in mind modern sensibilities will probably make most people think twice, and ignore any initial gut feeling they might have had.



** It has to do with the intertwined nature of Weaver and Wyrm. The Weaver is actually the Wyrm's real target, and Gaia is kind of a casualty in this (and of course, it's misinterpreted by the common Garou as the Wyrm attacking Gaia, with the Weaver as an incidental victim/sometimes minor problem. Book of the Weaver was not meant to alter the common knowledge of Garou, as it was written by three scholars that no one pays much attention to for being .. oddballs.) And because the Wyrm is trapped in web's of the Weaver's own devise, it's easier for him to act through/attack the Weaver's most important and cherised agents themselves - humans, the adopted children of the Weaver. To corrupt the Weaver's own minions and use them against Her (as well as Gaia or anyone else who opposes him)is just icing on the revenge-madness cake.

[[folder:Just shoot Zhyzhak!]]

* Why does King Albrecht seek to defeat Zhyzhak in hand-to-hand combat, at which she excels? Why not arrange for a Gaia Garou sniper to shoot Zhyzhak from a safe distance with a silver bullet? It would result in far fewer Gaia Garou casualties than traditional combat.
