    Nah, they're still plugging on with Vampire at least....not really sure why. Modiphius might be able to make a go of it but with all the other properties they are currently juggling I'm not sure how much effort they'll make.

    Hopefully Paradox will just stop with V5 and not try and ' revolutionise' the rest of OWoD.

    This is why, when your Gangrel learns Protean 4, it's important to make sure that your "Flight Form" is actually a literal flight form. Crazed wolf-men can only jump so high.


    The scenario doesn't have shapeshifting in it yet.. and if you could just fly away that would defeat the whole plot.

    Double that, some 10 times even.

    As others have said, there is no news to tell right now.

    A new edition of Werewolf: The Apocalypse was mootedlast year by White Wolf, but they have had a change of management since then. I'm not even sure that Modiphius has a license for anything beyond Vampire, currently, but at least they have a publishing schedule. I suspect they may review how that has gone at the end of they year and then make plans ahead. If V5 does work out for them, it is logical that they'll followup with Werewolf and Mage in due time.

    Personally, I'd be excited by a potential Werewolf game which uses the equivalent mechanic for Vampire's Hunger Dice, but for Rage instead.

    What really gets me about it, is how it is written as a hard limit rather than an obstacle. Have the werewolf there, but have it be something to overcome with planning.

    Checked the vampire forum, and the new people taking the reins seem pretty good. I'll still be on my toes for a bit, just in case.

    To the topic at hand, I personally think Paradox is severly restructuring nuWW before anything official gets published about 5th editions.

    The Lupine tracker can spend Rage to gain extra actions (up to two extra per round) and
    regenerates one point of Superficial damage each turn. It does not suffer wound penalties and its
    claws and bite deal aggravated damage. Good luck! THE END"

    I doubt that too.. honestly the only thing it could really use would be a Lore of the tribes.

    Understood. Thanks for clearing it up

    Good point, alpha playtests being far cries from final drafts. I'll focus on the V5 core's antagonist entry of Lupine
    I wouldn't take that as an indication either. I wrote that entry without any sight of plans for W5.
