Werewolf: The Forsaken is set in the New World of Darkness universe. Players take on the role of the Uratha, werewolves tasked with keeping the balance and fighting against the Idigam, spirits of things that never existed that have been imprisoned since before time began.
This new book builds upon the rules of the previous edition and according to Onyx Path includes:
- The complete guide to playing a werewolf in the World of Darkness.
- Reimagined tribes, auspices, and spirit magic to create the ultimate predator and her pack.
- A brand new look at werewolf hunting grounds around the world, from Basra to Tokyo.
- Rules for the werewolves’ prey, and five examples of the idigam.
While I have always preferred the old World of Darkness over the new, it is still good to see the series alive and well. In both old and new formats, World of Darkness RPGs focus heavily upon narrative, which is what I enjoy most about role playing. The release of the new edition of Werewolf: The Forsaken should open up new gaming opportunities for long established fans and hopefully bring in some new players too.
