  • A Pack of Many Things

    Hello there. I have a question that I wish some of you can answer.

    Can a Werewolf Pack contain other supernatural creatures? Specifically Mages and Vampires?
    Or more accurately, can there be a pack with only one werewolf, one wolf-blooded, a mortal, a mage and a couple of Vampires?
    And if something like this is possible, can the Vampires and Mages contribute to and benefit from a Tribal Totem?

    The book seems to suggest that it is possible and it says that they can join in (but not benefit from) the Siskur-dah, but I think it mostly refers to maybe one Mage or one Vampire joining a pack of werewolves.

    So, could the strange pack I described above ever be formed?

    Yes to inclusion in packs. The Pack provides more descriptions for this than the core book.

      But, are the others considered members of the pack in regards to gifts and such? When it makes sense of course.

      And is one werewolf enough to make this strange coterie a Pack?

        You could have a pack with zero werewolves and just mortals, as long as they somehow got a totem to bond them.

          Matter of fact there’s a merit specifically for werewolfless packs that lets them learn and use werewolf powers.

            That's providing they're mortal or wolf-blooded, and a special case besides.

            Emerus, yes you can have a bunch of other supernaturals in your pack. You might lean more towards Contagion than Werewolf for this, though, Contagion being the system made for abundant crossover, with factions and powers for groups based on how many different kinds of supernaturals are in them.

              First of all, thanks for the responses.

              The thing is nofather that we already have a CoD game with all 3 core books combined, so switching games is not an option at the moment.
              Its a large group, consisting of 7 players (usually we have 4 to 6 players in a given story), and we have 3 Vampires, a Werewolf, a Mage, a Wolf-Blooded and a human. I want to have the Werewolf player experience as much of the feeling of being a Werewolf as I can, but so far, when he needs to do something Werewolf-related, its usually his Tribe that he does it with. Which means, the other players cannot participate that much. So I am looking for a way to include the rest of the players in those things, that's why I am looking for a way to turn them into his Pack.

                No and yes. They can benefit, but lack the correct spiritual nature to contribute.

                      Actually, how about this? A merit that would allow others to contribute to the totem. Maybe the characters can justify getting this merit through a werewolf rite that would attune the others to the shadow, using the pack's werewolf as a focus. This could be a 2-dot merit that would contribute 1 totem point to the totem. This way, everyone can contribute, but at a higher cost.

                        You have one in the blooded appendix in the corebook.
