Being a adept player of WtA I was at first having a hard time accepting the demise of my favourite game, that is, until I put my hands on The forsaken book.
Werewolf the forsaken gives the player a freedom that his predecessor never dreamt about. While I read the book i felt that it centered around you as a wolf in a mans guise. The forsaken dont have to fight a overwhelming cosmic force of evil like the wyrm, instead, they have to defend and enlarge their territory. Of course they still have their connection to the spirit world, but now the spirit world is not a nice place for the Uratha(as the werewolf call themselves now), instead, its a dark and menacing place.
I felt much closer to the wild animal inside me as i read this book then when i was playing the old Werewolf the apocalypse. Open your minds and give it a try. Im sure it will be worthy!
