W20 Cookbook is a sourcebook for W20, providing extra background information on the numerous tribes of the Garou, as well as providing the favorite recipes of those tribes.

Summary Edit

From the Onyx Path catalog:

Every werewolf tribe has its traditions, legends, and customs. From the tales of lordly Silver Fangs to the debased Black Spiral Dancers, and from the isolated Siberakh to the long-dead White Howlers, those legends live on. Part of that culture comes across through each tribe’s attitude towards food.
This book is a first for the World of Darkness, providing both extra background details on each tribe of Garou and a tasty recipe that’s representative of the tribe. Many of them come with variations for feeding those Garou and Kinfolk who hold to vegetarian or vegan diets, or are gluten-intolerant. Storytellers may want to use the W20 Cookbook as an in-character prop, or as inspiration to cook something for their players before the game begins.
The W20 Cookbook contains:
  • Twenty recipes for tasty dishes, one for each tribe of the Garou.
  • Recipes range from entrees to desserts to snacks to eat on the run.
  • Examinations of how each tribe approaches food, and how even the Red Talons can enjoy a cooked meal.

Background Information Edit

The idea for this book came as a stretch goal for the W20 Kickstarter.

Memorable Quotes Edit

"It pains me to say that I did once know one idiot who, upon seeing my notes, decided that all Black Furies could cook, and that they should cook for him. Last I heard, he was still looking for his genitals. Food can be as much a tribal secret as any other. Respect that."
Pete Quire, p. 7

Characters Edit

  • Pete Quire - A Garou of the Silent Striders tribe, and the "author" of the book. A chef-in-training before his First Change, his culinary nature led him to collect the signature recipes of the other tribes into his Werewolf Cookbook.
