White Wolf Wiki

Werewolf Translation Guide is a sourcebook for Werewolf: The Apocalypse and Werewolf: The Forsaken. Similar to the Vampire Translation Guide, the Werewolf Translation Guide is a guide to help translate the feel and core elements of Werewolf: The Apocalypse's game system and background into Werewolf: The Forsaken, and vice-versa.


From the Onyx Path Catalog:

Have you always wanted to include lupus Garou in your Forsaken game? Or perhaps the Hunters in Darkness into your Apocalypse game? This guide will help you translate the feel and core elements from each version of Werewolf into the other game system and background.

Background Information

  • This is the first White Wolf product to be branded with an Onyx Path Publishing logo. The logo used is a Werewolf-specific variant. Nearly all White Wolf products carry an Onyx Path logo from this point forward.
  • The book details the inspiration the Forsaken and Pure Tribes had taken from Werewolf: The Apocalypse:
    • Ivory Claws = Silver Fangs: Purity
    • Predator Kings = Red Talon Camp of the same name: Hates Humans
    • Blood Talons = Aspects of Get of Fenris, Wendigo, Black Furies and Fianna: Focus on Fighting.
    • Bone Shadows = Aspects of Uktena, Stargazers and Silent Striders: Focus on Spirits and Knowledge.
    • Hunters in Darkness = Aspects of Red Talons and Black Furies: Protecting the Wyld/Wildness.
    • Iron Masters = Glass Walkers
    • Storm Lords = Shadow Lords and Silver Fangs: To Lead/Rule.
    • Ghost Wolves = Ronin
  • The only one without a clearly stated inspiration is the Fire-Touched. But one could guess they take the fanatical religious aspects from both the Children of Gaia and Black Spiral Dancers.
