I wonder what you think of the idea of the Looking Glass? It's basically a cybercafé made with powers in mind. After all, they tend to have certain requirements and issues when going online that most people - not even the powers themselves sometimes - simply wouldn't think of. Things like a relatively anonymous but otherwise fully functional, legal and reliable method to buy things online without leaking their details, hence the giftcards, Paypoint service, Crypto ATM and Amazon Locker. Online privacy isn't just a political issue for a power, it's a matter of life and death.

Personally, I think it`s a neat idea. It`s SORT of like the Home Sweet Home in the States. A place where XDs go without worry to communicate with each other.

One thing I recommend looking at is the Urban Arcana setting book for D20 Modern. It gives a good idea on how some fantasy races would adapt to living in a modern society.

Also, for those with Netflix, Bright. Essentially Urban Arcana in a movie. Not the best movie I've ever seen, but I really liked the Orc Cop.

Just thought of a new slang term...

Dolittle: Anyone with Comprehend: Speak and Understand Animals. Most Dolittles end up developing Animal Empathy and are near-always among the most valued members of any group that works with animals.

Well, the main reason I thought of a section on slang is that it would make the post-Merge world sound like people actually live there.

I like it. My personal thoughts on pokemon and animals would be they would love anyone who could actually understand them and be very chatty because of it. It would be a huge concern if the local critters wouldn't talk. It's a good indication of how bad an area is.
