The Orphans Survival Guide is a sourcebook on both the Orphans - mages who work on their own, outside of the Traditions, Technocracy and Crafts – and the Hollow Ones. It is in part a replacement for Destiny's Price, a much-maligned sourcebook that covered roughly similar topics.
From the White Wolf catalog:
- Born in a Firestorm
- One moment, you're halfway normal. The next moment, everything goes to hell. Reality becomes a sham and you're the only one who understands the truth. Bend over, baby – you're screwed!
- Raised on the Streets
- Surrounded by enemies, haunted by visions, wrapped up in forces you can't understand... no wonder you've gone crazy! But help is here – help from the only people on Earth who understand. People like you. The Orphaned Ones. The Survivors.
- I Will Never Submit.
- From the Waydown to the Heights, the self-Awakened gather. Defiant. Demented. Too rebellious for "traditions" and too cool to care. This is the New Way. They are the Hope of Tomorrow.
- So EAT ME!!!
- You know the drill:
