Clanbook: Gangrel is the sourcebook covering the Clan Gangrel, the Kindred closer to the Beast than any other. It was replaced in the Revised Edition by Clanbook: Gangrel Revised. Its tag line is From the Forests of Mystery.


From the White Wolf catalog:

The Gangrel relish their reputation as the most mysterious of the Camarilla clans, but even their secrecy cannot stand forever. Now learn the secrets of these enigmatic vampires — their history and legends, their allies and enemies, and the truth of their relationship with the fearsome Lupine. There is good reason why they stand at the forefront of every vampiric war: none can stand against them.
