Subsidiaries: A Guide to Pentex covers the top six companies under the umbrella of Pentex which include, Endron International, Magadon Incorporated, King Breweries and Distilleries, Avalon Incorporated, Tellus Enterprises, and Black Dog Game Factory. The best part about the top six is that most are innocent enough on the outside and go to great lengths to hide their activity or make themselves indispensable to the region, so there will be no nine foot tall walking death machines 80% of the time. White Wolf wants the Story Teller to ham up the "I'm an innocent pedestrian/by stander/worker" and forces the pack to use less obvious methods to solve their problems, especially against the toy company Avalon, the software company Tellus Enterprises, and the pen and paper company Black Dog Game Factory. These corps have some nasty tricks up their sleeves for any slack jawed creature of the night that thinks they're in charge of the situation, such as chemicals that affect Garou and Vampires, genetics that target certain sectors of the population, viruses, teams of lawyers, and an insane amount of wealth to buy off opposition. In my opinion, since Pentex is a global enterprise, they should be in every World of Darkness chronicle. A quick description of their logos while the pack is at the gas station, or a Masquerade violation the pack witnesses in a video game that just hit the markets, would do wonders to add fluff to your chronicle. Even if the coterie/pack doesn't investigate now, they may start to associate Avalon Incorporated with nasty news articles about children stampeded to death in toy stores around their area, visit the Umbra and see a Wyrm infested factory with the same logo, or have their Kinfolk tainted by a bane attached to a Tellus Enterprises video game.
These are all CLEARLY mockeries of real life organizations and are to be taken in jest, which I hear is illegal in some sectors of Gaia, and there the most childish heads up to readers compared to other White Wolf products. Some products deal with horrible real life issues such as rape, murder, child abduction, mass corruption, and other very touchy topics to some players, while this one gives fair warning in chapter six to nerds about their dark side of... laziness, uncleanliness, immaturity, or their lack of vitamin D from no sun exposure.
