This may not be the right place for this, but I figured it might inspire someone looking to add a slightly different pantheon into their fantasy world:

Centzon Tōtōchtin (translation: four hundred rabbits) is a group of four hundred divine rabbits in Aztec mythology that frequently meet for drunken parties. Their leader is Ometochtli (translation: two-rabbit).

Who are you?
I am two-rabbit.
Who is one-rabbit?
You are six-rabbit.

Of course. Everyone knows that agenothree is good for killing mycorrhizoidal spores. Silver just makes it better, especially when Threadfall occurs during the full moon.

I'll show myself out.

Joking aside, I need to look these guys up. Sounds interesting.

And now I have to go listen to that song or I'll have that bit running in my head all day. Thankfully, I think it's on YouTube...

If you know the song well enough, just singing the final line can help.

They've discovered a planet where it rains titanium.

Glass-like silicate and metals create a sort of 'water cycle' where they create silvered clouds and titanium rains.

Tech CEO Bryan Johnson is a literal vampire. In an attempt to keep himself eternally young he pays young people to donate blood to be used in an unnecessary transfusion. Most recently he talked his own son and father into contributing to the "Make Bryan Immortal" plan. He spends a couple of million a year on various different aging retardation strategies in addition to the vampirism.

So, you and your buddy are out on a small sailing boat, taking it from Cherbourg to Camaret via the English Channel, when your rudder breaks. Being 50 nautical miles from shore and not being Beowulf, you don't have the option of just swimming to safety, so you send out a distress call. It's immediately answered by a nearby ship, identifying itself as the three-masted Swedish sailing vessel Götheborg. You're concerned about the size disparity between your vessels, but you don't have much choice and the Swedes sound confident they'll be able to tow you to safe harbor.

Then it arrives... and you find yourself staring into the distance at a Swedish East Indian Company ship from the 18th century, questioning if you've somehow been transported into the distant past.
