In Eclipse, supernatural warfare shares many common traits with human warfare. The negative motives are greed, power, and revenge. On the other hand, war also inspires positive emotions, such as loyalty to a cause. Supernatural wars are more old-fashioned in that they involve man-to-man combat, but the supernatural speed and force of werewolves and vampires rivals today's high-tech weapons. Strategy, rather than brute strength, seems to be the most important factor in winning supernatural wars.
