** For an extra layer of amusement, the change in 3e's dev team between the core book's publishing and the development of the Dragon-Blooded book means that he probably ''won't'' have seven wangs. He'd probably still be able to take a form like that but phallic details will probably be left up to Storytellers.


* The ''Roll of Glorious Divinity'' opens the [[PersonOfMassDestruction Kukla's]] statblock with this:

* The laws of Creation demand that the Unconquered Sun must [[TheAce overcome and triumph over all things.]] The laws of Creation ''also'' demand that all living things must one day submit to [[DontFearTheReaper Saturn.]] These two facts tend to concern educated people, since they imply that Creation might suffer the metaphysical equivalent of a LogicBomb eventually. To make it worse, it's been noted that every Calibration feast, the Unconquered Sun and Saturn engage in some sort of trivial contest, and the Unconquered Sun always wins, after which Saturn says, "perhaps next year." The Unconquered Sun always answers, "perhaps." No one is sure what that's all about, but it's making a lot of people nervous.

*The 3e corebook contains a sidebar warning demonologists against summoning the wrong demon for a given job. This is cut down from the playtest, which had a lengthy example of what would happen if you tried to safely send a young boy to a neighboring city by binding a trio of ''[[ImAHumanitarian blood apes]]'' to the task. Don't worry, they won't eat him. In fact, they'll offer him the choicest cuts of whoever they come across on the road.


* ''Terrestrial Directions: North'' has a section on slavery in Gethamane and the restrictions on it - for example, slaves are owned by the city, and contracted out with the understanding that public property is not to be damaged. When the Guild brings slaves into the city, however, they own the slaves - so when the guard see Guild slaves being beaten or abused, they arrest the offender for "damaging someone else's property," until they can prove that they actually own the slave. The illustration takes the cake, however: a muscled-up guard, smashing clear through a wall and interrupting what is clearly an S&M session.

* ''Aspect Book - Fire'' has a section written from Cynis Denovah Avaku's point of view, about how, in the legions, they came across a village where earlier they had fought off the FairFolk, and he witnessed the collateral damage for the first time. The Sergeant of the mortals under his command told him that they had done a good job, and things would be better for the village by the next year, ultimately teaching him to appreciate the good the Realm does as well as the bad. Later in the book, [[http://i.imgur.com/3yk0vIy.png we hear from said sergeant...]]

* After storming over to Lytek's offices and finding him guarded by eight celestial lions and two lesser elemental dragons who only allowed him in after an invasive search of his person, he learned that the Solar Exaltations had started reincarnating earlier that year. Lytek smugly informed him that he'd simply wanted the Exaltations polished up before informing anyone. Not to mention the measures taken to make sure nothing like the Usurpation could happen again:

-->Kejak’s rage upon hearing this report only worsened when he investigated the assignment of Lytek’s new security detail. The powerful guards protecting the Right Hand of Power were each assigned by different deities, ranging from the three Syndics to Ahlat to Wun Ja, the Director of Humanity. Even deities who were not particularly opposed to the Bronze Faction or the Dragon-Blooded still remembered how rudely Lytek was manhandled during the Usurpation, and the blunt show of force served to show that it would not be tolerated again.
