How are you getting this? I mean, even the main book calls them 'the
Fair Folk', I'd note, right on the cover. "Faeries" has never really
been used all that much in Exalted for them. I don't really see
anything in the article suggesting that Raksha will replace Fair Folk as
the preferred way to refer to these critters in general.

And Kindred of the East says "Kindred of the East" on the cover.^~

Yes, it has. Tho, admittedly, not *quite* as much as "Fey", "Fae", and
"Fair Folk"...

Where he says how he sent out an inflammatory "imperial decree" to the
writers that henceforth, "faeries" will now be "raksha", and when he
instructs STs to tell players that there are now "no such things" as
faeries in Exalted, but to hit them up with raksha stories instead.

I do think we'll still hear the term "Fair Folk", but probably only
IC, from characters who don't know any better. Book texts talking
right to the reader might say "Raksha", from now on...Not that it
really matters. It gives me a bad feeling, but these things happen.
It's not gonna ruin the game for me or anything...

Dex,
who was looking forward to +2 Shirts of Poofiness...:-(
