* 2E features actual alchemists...who are generally antagonistic or become so due to Disquiet, since Prometheans are bountiful harvests for the truly jaw-dropping feats of alchemy.



* TheDarkSide: Centimani, Refinement of Flux.

to:

* TheDarkSide: Centimani, Refinement of Flux. In 2E, it's actually impossible to progress on the Pilgrimage while following it, since it fundamentally is about becoming ''anything but'' human. [[DarkIsNotEvil That doesn't mean Freaks are always evil]], but it does mean they are at the very least embittered hermits, and the majority abandon humanity by defying the positive aspects and sanity.



* ThenLetMeBeEvil: Hi there, Furies!

to:

* ThenLetMeBeEvil: Hi there, Furies!Furies! Subverted, however, in that Stannum is still a Pilgrimage Refinement-it's about the ''dark'' aspects of humanity, but its fundamental goal is learning to ''[[BadPowersGoodPeople control]]'' those feelings and turn them to productive ends.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Transhumanism}}: Deconstructed with 2E's antagonistic alchemists-many of them want to become "more than human," but it's explicit that they do it at the cost of living beings (ie, Prometheans themselves) and it comes with untested and gruesome side effects. As a result, what they ''actually'' become is frequently deserving of the title "less than human."

** The sample ''qashmallim'' include two Elpidos who appear as strange agents and show up to deal with the anomaly that's trapped several mortals and is picking it off one by one - though their primary goal is dealing with the anomaly, with human cost as a secondary focus at best. Their names are [[Series/SapphireAndSteel Ruby and Gold]].

* {{Cult}}/[[ReligionOfEvil Religion Of Arguably a Neccessary Evil Or Unneccessary Knight Templars]]: The Botherud are a group of Prometheans that believe that Azoth is a limited resource that must be conserved and that Promethean reproduction is a Sin against the Divine Fire. Considering that it is a requirement to make another Promethean as a step towards becoming human, this puts them at odds with the rest of their kind and bars them from attaining humanity, unless they reproduced prior to joining, in which case they would have to kill their progeny as per their creed. Bonus points for them also slaughtering any Prometheans they find and using an old Soviet nuclear device close to Boston on the player's Throng in the sample adventure they first appeared in...

* ShoutOut: The "Re-Animator" Bestowment for Zeka is actually a subtle one to ''Film/NightOfTheLivingDead'', and a number of other zombie movies where it is radiation that brings the dead to life. It's also named after [[Creator/HPLovecraft Herbert West]].
