Summary[edit | edit source]
From the White Wolf catalog:
- Chosen by the Wyrm
- Pentex wants to speed up the process of human evolution. If nature won't do it quick enough, then Pentex will have to do it instead. Thus, the fomor: a sick, corrupt combination of Bane and human, a superpowered freak unfit for human society, blessed with deadly powers yet cursed with terrible diseases - and now you can play one of these things!
- Abandoned by Gaia
- Courtesy of Black Dog Games and the Wyrm, find out what life is like among the Wyrm's chosen. Lead assault teams against your Garou oppressors! But beware: A fomor's life is more extreme than you can imagine. Boundaries are crossed and conceptions shattered.
