Vampires and Wraiths are least changed. Wraiths barely see reflections of these new worlds in the realms, but those vague shadows are growing.

Vampires don't remember that change, just going from top of the food chain to being chased by people with phasers knocked out and sent to penal colonies for the criminally insane (the Tzimisce are annoying the hell out of everyone by calling themselves https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Garth_of_Izar]Lord Garth of Izar[/url] before the Malkavians can).

Some elder Vampires are know to be loose and out there and not all lower generation vampires were caught.

You might want to edit the Garth of Izar link.

I'd love to, but it isn't an option.

Does being On Notice mean that you can't edit, or is this a smartphone issue, or something that I haven't thought of?

The first. But I'll get a better link to Gath later.

First, Gath of Izar.

Second, the vampires are shocked that the Tzmisce have watched TV, and the Malkavians are netted that the Tzmisce got to the quip first.

Third, the Federation people running the rehabilitation camps don't know why they're all talking about a war hero they could never have met.

The Cathayans or Kuei-jin have also been rounded up. If anything they're fat more outraged than the Cainite vampires.

A small number of the most enlightened Kuei-jin have gotten away. Certain heretical dharmas like the Cerulean Curtains or the Rising Phoenixes get greater levels of freedom as do selected members of the Way of the Gods. Meanwhile, another heretical dharma, the Scorpions, and the non-heretical Devil Tigers, are under intense lock down 24/7 like the more distrusted Cainites.

Meanwhile, Dhampires (the children of Kuei-Jin), Ghouls, and Revenants are also gathered up into the penal colonies. The Dhampires, being the most independent and reality focused are pretty much scheduled for release. The Revenant families generally disturb everyone they meet and are kept under watch like Vampires.

The few Risen and Mummies that the Federation has found/catured are judged individually, but sternly.

I'll try. I've got to see if anyone has done something on Star Trek Cosmologies. After all, Spock, in the animated episode where he travels back to meet/protect his child self, does mention going to "the shrines of our family's gods" to his father. Did the Vulcans worship a pantheon but assumed their families were under the special tutelage of one or more specific members of the pantheon. Is it like Henothesim where they pick a god? Or is it like the Yoruba faiths were the gods pick you?

And what cosmologies do the Klingons, Romulans, Bajorans, Betazeds (Sacred Rings and Holy Chalice remember) and other have.

My instinct is to stick primarily to Mage and add in anything else fun and colorful.

The Imbued have shown up in this setting as well. The Imbued remember both their past lives before the transition and the lives they have now, in this they are like the Mages, and Changelings. The Mercy Creeds, Innocents, Martyrs, and Redeemers have mainly shown up within the Federation. The Vision Creeds Visionary, Hermit, Waywards are almost exclusively found outside of the Federation, or on worlds like Tasha Yar's brutal Homeworld. The Zeal Creeds Avengers, Defenders, and Judges are split between the many societies of the galaxy, but which group is dominant is unknown.

The Hunters seem to be coming to the consensus that those supernaturals that support stability and survival are needed allies. The Mercy Creeds tend toward seeking to build alliances. The Zeal Creeds tend to split between announcing that they're "in" and seeking recruits to their causes. The Vision Creeds tend to seek followers, with the Hermits and Waywards still being most likely to simply attack or avoid.
