If you don't want to use them, then they're just a mixture of well cast illusions and rumor.

Yes, the books ARE that relativist in the setting.

The only thing concrete about the nephandi is that they are opposed to just about everyone. But they aren't needed for that. Paradox demons work just fine in the same role. As do Toreador, Nosferatu, and Ventrue vampires (or their nWoD renames), or Black Spiral Dancer Werewolves.

The Technocracy vs the Traditional Traditions is the biggest theme in the game, but there are others in the core - including academic vs experiential traditions (pitting the hermetics and technocrats against several other traditions), Magi vs other supernaturals, and Mages reshaping the unawakened without them noticing... Gods and Devils in human frames...

Yup.

WWG used to revel in that.
