* The Planners - So it looks like they got started from family discussions after the panic of 1873. But how much was simply saying, "That worked well, we should keep doing that," and how much was an actual organized effort to build something that could hold people together should civilization collapse.

* The Aunt Family - How unique is the family? Are there other such families out there?

* Addergoole - Do the Nedetakaei have anything even vaguely similar to the Addergoole school?

* Faerei Apocalypse - After the apocalypse what has happened the former 'blindness' that kept regular humans from noticing the fae. Did it go away for good? Just temporarily weakened? Never really went away and people only noticed because of how blatant the Returned were being?

Stranded: is perceiving and manipulating strands innate or learned? How do people acquire and develop these abilities?

Dragons Next Door: How do dweomers originate?

Unicorn/Factory: What do the factories produce? (Other than pollution ...)

The Aunt Family: Ruan seems to be in a different genre from the rest of the family, with scientific chemical/alchemical experimentation and enchanted mechanisms (as well as trapped spirits and whatnot else). What changed? (Or have we just not seen more recent Aunts at that sort of work?)

A meta-setting question, possibly inappropriate to the topic: How do you-the-author develop the rules of magic in the various 'verses that have magic? (Or Mad Science, in the worlds that have that.)

What do the external economics and logistics of the pirate ship Genique is stuck on look like? Do they actually make most of their money on ransoms? How do they make contact to make those exchange without getting caught? Are they being grossly overcharged by their suppliers, and/or have wonky and unexpected expenses? Are they a one-of operation, or part of a larger organization?

What actually happens when someone becomes The Aunt? At least one story (for a branch) implied that something ... tangible is not the right word, maybe distinct? ... happens when that branch of the family agrees on who the new one is.

What made Fairy Town different?

(And one more that wandered into my brain. Feel free to ignore.)

Dragons, history: How did a magic-ignorant to magic-averse race of technology users wind up the clueless dominant race in a world full of magic, some of it not at all subtle?

Not a question exactly, but a request to update the Aunt Family Tree (and start separate trees for offshoot branches whose relationship to the main tree is not yet established).

Keeping: Was it part of the original plan or it something fae? Is there any specific magical binding for Keeper and Kept? I just read a reference to 'Hell Night' and wasn't caught so he should be home free. Is being caught at Hell Night how you get to be Kept? Still trying to catch up! :)
