Summary

From the White Wolf 1993-94 catalog:

The Iron Curtain has fallen but a more dread curtain has risen to engulf Russia. A spiritual blight spreads over the land, extinguishing all magic in its path. As their caerns die out, the Garou must stop the blight before it destroys their last strongholds. A Chronicle book detailing the dark plots in the Mother Land and the shadowy evil behind them.

From the Back Cover:

The Fate of Nations
The Garou and their Kin have always influenced the history of Russia, from the rise of the empire to the time of the tsars. Then the Revolution came, and vampires seized the reins of power. The purges began, and the Garou were running for their lives.
The Fall of Heroes
Now the Iron Curtain has fallen, and a more sinister curtain is coming to engulf Russia. A spiritual blight spreads over the land, extinguishing all magic in its path. Dark creatures out of legend rise and prowl once more. As their caerns die out, the Garou must stop the blight before it destroys their last strongholds.
