Man, there's something almost nostalgic about the particular breed of otherkin featured in this episode.
I think it's something that I didn't really grasp at the time, but revisiting this stuff 15-20 years removed from when it was happening, it's interesting to see just how much of a direct outgrowth of the tabletop rpg community oldschool otherkin invariably were. The actual mechanics and portrayals of dragons in the episode were pretty much ripped directly from the 2nd Edition Monstrous Compendiums and the vague babblings of new age pseudo-spirituality are pretty much identical to the sort of stuff you'd see in White Wolf splat books when Phil "Satyros" Brucato* was in the writer's chair.
The 90s were a hell of a weird time for RPGs.
* - To those not in the know, Phil Brucato was a game developer who legally changed his name to "Satyros" because he's exactly the person you picture when someone says the phrase "neo-pagan weirdo". He still tends to go by Phil Brucato for professional work but always includes the Satyros in some capacity.
