Caerns: Places of Power is a sourcebook for Werewolf: The Apocalypse that details fourteen caerns: one for each of the thirteen tribes of the Garou Nation, plus a twisted hive of the Black Spiral Dancers. Caerns: Places of Power also introduces the Kitsune: the werefoxes of Japan.


From the White Wolf catalog:

Land of Longing
The world is the flesh of Gaia, the Earth Mother. She is sacred to the Garou. Across Her surface are sites where Her power is strong, where the Garou can still connect with the spirit world. In woods, in valleys and on mountains, these sites can still be found. They are the caerns, the ancient places of power.
Land of Death
As humanity spreads out across the once virgin earth, the caerns die out, unable to withstand the onslaught of mankind's destruction. Gaia's flesh is torn away. There is still hope, however. Even in the cities, the sacred sites can still be found, kept alive by the Garou. How long will the caerns survive? The Wyrm slithers ever onward, destroying everything in its wake...
