These are the final days-
The signs are clear:
Even our pups know
That this is the age of the Apocalypse!

Werewolf the Apocalypse roared into hobby games in 1992, inspiring a generation of fans to stand up and howl their defiance at a corrupted world in a battle they knew they were doomed to lose. WtA presented the Garou: creatures at once both man and wolf, and filled with a Rage against the evils that would destroy and corrupt both the natural and spirit worlds. Capable of transforming into a variety of forms and blessed with Gifts that enabled superhuman and supernatural powers, the Garou fought many foes, always knowing that in the end they would fall. But what stories would be told and what songs sang of their exploits!

This epic tragic story, combined with the unwavering dedication of an unparalleled fan base, is the reason this book is being published. Werewolf: The Apocalypse – 20th Anniversary Edition brings the entire World of Darkness experience full circle and will serve as the perfect anniversary milestone to celebrate two decades of gaming the epic sagas of the Garou.

What’s in it?

  • All thirteen original tribes, tribe variants and Lost Tribes, with their signature Gifts and Rites updated from the Werewolf: The Apocalypse Revised tabletop rules.
  • Rules for character creation and advancement.
  • Gifts from level one through six, including expanded lists.
  • Updated setting to the modern nights.
  • New full color original art by Ron Spencer, John Bridges, Steve Prescott, Dan Brereton, Richard Kane Ferguson, and other classic “Apocalypse” artists, as well as classic B&W pieces carefully chosen from the earlier editions.

About the Now in Print editions:

1. The Black & White print editions of this book are not full-bleed. Because of printing requirements there is a small white border around the edge of the pages.

2. Standard Color uses a thinner paper stock than Premium Color, basically the same paper as the Black & White books. This usually means the colors are less vivid, but it also means the price drops a bit per page in the production process. Examples of pages: Premium Color vs. Standard Color.

I just got my Hardcover Standard Edition book. I was so excited to finally get it. I rush home, rip open the package like a kid on Christmas day, only to be disappointed. The pages were not even attached to the spine of the book. WTH guys...really?

I have a large scratch on the front of my book. It's hard to believe that the guy who finished the package didn't notice it.
I'm glad my other books were left unscathed.

Hardcover, Standard Color Book with a big scratch.
consider this a complaint.

Is it like claw scratches? That’s actually a feature. It’s a werewolf slash!

This is a remaster of the 2nd edition of Werewolf and includes a whole bunch of stuff that was found in other books such as settings, tribes or adventures etc. Advances the plot a bit of the meta and gives plenty of tools and options play the game. If you love WtA as I do then this is a must-have definitive edition.

Going to skim through the "reviews" section to see if I can find my answer there, but in the meantime: how does this differ from other editions? Is this just a "remaster" of the 2e or revised? Are the rules here substantially different? Is it closer to The Forsaken than to The Apocalypse?

I ask because this:
I've played around a little bit with both the WoD and NWoD versions of Vampire, and have no experience with Werewolf. I liked the newer version of Vampire more than the older; I felt it was more streamlined, easier to play with, and (eventually of relevance to me) easier to meld into a "Scooby Squad." From reading the Wikipedia article, I gathered very little about the rules differences between Apocalypse and Forsaken, but it seems the themes and fluff of the older game are more what I'm after, so whatever book(s) I buy, I'd like it(/them) to key to that setting/story.

I think.

But what I really want is to have a good idea of what the...See more

It is supposed to be free this week for those cooped up inside, so why does it still want to charge me 30 bucks?

Congratulations for the initiative! The Dark Ages came with two separate character sheets. This one, only the book. Is this right?

Yes and no. The World of Darkness lines have always had a few issues with games or characters "crossing over" into other game lines. However, the 20th anniversary editions of the games are the best for trying to make it work.

Is there going to be a W20 bundle similar to Changeling 20th and Wraith 20 where you can get all the PDFs?

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
