    That would be pretty cool too I think. A book like that would be crazy useful for a Werewolf game too I figure. Heck if you compile all the wilderness sections from the various werewolf sourcebooks over the years you could probably get something which loosely resembles that.

    Oh yeah, a Cults book would be good. The WoD books talk about cults (and their sister groups like Secret Societies and Conspiracies) but they rarely go into the weeds much about how such groups would actually work in the WoD and what their uses may be.

    Which is odd because basically every game line is in effect a Secret Society of some form or another and having to keep themselves hidden is a default plot hook for basically all of them.

    Yeah, while I do get what the anachronism in Changeling is going for I do think it’s somewhat disappointing.

    Horror Inspiration for WoD

    So, I think it’s fair to say that a great deal of WoD material is heavily inspired by horror media, even if the old gothic horrors might not tingle spines today like they used too.

    Within the systems, setting, and rules of WoD you have tools for bringing about just about any horror concept you want, in most cases it’s as easy as saying that an evil spirit or occultist did something spooky.

    So we all know that horror stuff can be created in a bunch of different ways using WoD systems, but what I’m curious about is, what horror concepts do people wish we had more...
