White Wolf Wiki

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:
  • The Hollow Ones "tradition book..." as if!!
  • Storyteller advice for hardass chronicles;
  • Gutter magick, templates, living legends, a ready-to-run club, and more!
