As far as I can tell, there are five clans: Katana Clan, Rapier Clan, Bullwhip Clan, Iron Flail Clan, and Cat O' Nine Tails Clan. There should be a third clan for the sword side...

BTW, I'm Glasya the Grubby of Iron Flail Clan.

Nevermind. I think I've got it.

Iron Flail v. Broadsword
Cat O' Nine Tails v. Katana
Bullwhip v. Rapier

I'm pretty sure these are the clan rivalries.

Also, did a bit of research into the name I was assigned. What significance could this hold?

I'd also recommend that everyone stick around until midnight. Just to see what happens. I can't help but have an odd feeling that something strange is going to go down...

We should compile a list of the names referenced, they are all clues, possibly. It seems like he is really into researching his material, as many demon names are similar to those written in ancient grimoires or at least OTO translations of those. I wonder if there are clues in the names. What if the player is the demon, and there is a huge hierarchy of demons inspired by classical demonology? That would be some sick sh*t.

All of the names reference the Ars Goetia.

Very likely the monsters in the game are specifically based upon the Ars Goetia. All of the monsters have glyphs and runes, apparently...

The whole clan thing confuses me. I'm guessing it's only part of this particular viral campaign and will have very little to do with the actual game. Maybe they'll use the clans in a more meaningful way later on, when they're making decisions on the game content? It seems we are voting for the weapons, except not quite? I've been clicking randomly on both weapons multiple times, lol. And if I leave the site for a while and return, I'm given a brand new name, so I don't see any real meaning here just yet. This is the strangest thing I've done all day.

In demon form Glasya-Labolas appears as a dog with wings like a griffin. In his human/angelic form he appears as a young man, a teenager perhaps, with short blonde hair and white wings.

Finally! I woke up to this and it is brilliant! Go, IGA! I am so excited! I am sure it will be something great, mostly similar in spirit to SotN. My financial situation is not good, but I am SO giving money for this :)

Holy shit that is creepy.

I really can't wait to see how twisted and creative this new bestiary of monsters is going to be. Clean slate, new ideas. This is incredibly exciting! :D

Makes me think that the game will be based on two opposing clans of demon hunters or something.
