Dark Alliance: Vancouver is a supplement for Werewolf: The Apocalypse and Vampire: The Masquerade that details the complex relationship of the Kindred and the Garou in the city of Vancouver, and the forces that threaten it.


From the White Wolf catalog:

In the City, In the Woods
The city of Vancouver is like no other – peace reigns between vampire and werewolf. To the Kindred, the city is a "safe haven" from the raging politics of the Damned. To the Garou, it is the site of the Great Caern, a place of spiritual brotherhood. A generation has passed in peaceful silence...
The Shadow of Treachery
...but that is about to end. The Vancouver Compact is threatened, and war looms on the horizon. An invisible enemy works to destroy all that both socieites have acheived. Something is awakening and it writhes within the city. Can Garou and Kindred overcome their rivalries and work together to prevent the city's destruction? Dark Alliance: Vancouver is a Vampire/Werewolf chronicle book detailing the people, places, and plots around Vancouver, a hotbed of Garou and Kindred unrest.
