Werewolf the Apocalypse information source

Wyrmfoe

Wyrmfoe is a database of all Werewolf: the Apocalypse Gifts (except Wild West & Dark Ages) in an easily searchable format. This site is a personal project and is intended as a game aid for players of Werewolf: the Apocalypse who love it as much as we do. We created this site primarily to use as an aid in our own games, but we hope others find it useful as well and that is increases your enjoyment of the Werewolf: the Apocalypse world. All terms and the Gifts are copyright White Wolf Games Studios, of course!

With all modern-day Gifts currently entered into the site, we are debating whether or not it makes sense to include the Wild West or Dark Ages gifts, as well as what other elements of the Werewolf universe would be useful to include. The original idea was to house all of the data or information that needs to be frequently referred to and is spread across dozens of out of print books, but not any of the actual rules of the game. Thus if you want to play, you still have to buy the books (and please do buy them, if only in PDF form. The more sales Onyx gets the more likely they are to continue publishing books for WtA!)

Some of the things we’re thinking about including are Fetishes and Talons, Merits and Flaws, Totems, and perhaps rites. If you see any errors in any of the contents of the site, please just leave a comment on that page and we’ll get it fixed. If you find anything that’s missing, just leave us a comment here!

  • Core book revised:  All 215 Gifts added to Werewolf Gifts

In addition to pouring through all the Werewolf books, special thanks goes out to Chris “Su-tehp” Fernandez-Duque, who created a similar effort in word document form about a year into our work on this site. We referred to his work to double check the completeness of Wyrmfoe, which led to us discovering some gaps!

      As it stands, I’ve compiled most of the gifts, working currently on Revised merits and flaws, as well as a working spreadsheet for both Revised and W20. I looked over the gift list and realized that quite a few of the BSD gifts are missing that are listed in Book of the Wyrm. I’d be willing to help, just drop me an email.

    So, this is awesome, and wicked useful, as I am currently playing in a werewolf/changing breeds game.

    Is there any way I could assist in gathering the information in your wishlist? I also own most of the books and I’d love to help out.

    at

    • Yes! If you want to help enter stuff, let me know and I can hook you up with access to the backend. But I should warn you that it’s a tedious process!

        I’m game! It’s a good cause and I have far too much free time on my hands anyway ;)

          • Not at all — just being a bit slow to get back to things. Let me know you’re email and I’ll get in touch with you about how it works, and get you an account set up on the site!

    This site has editable pdf character sheets for, well, a heck of a lot more than just werewolf: the apocalypse, but they’re in there in all kinds of varieties.

    I have all WTA books let know what and I thought of something you might want to add to your list of things have. A list of Spirit Charms (ie the powers spirits learn)

    at

    • That’s a good idea — we can toss it up there with fetishes and talens as something to move onto once we finish Gifts. But for the time being there are a *lot* more Gifts to hit!

    As I also have lots of free time, I’d be more than willing to help with things on the wishlist. I have the full list of Werewolf books, including the Tribe books and the supplemental books that came with the different editions. All of the Tribe books have gifts that are available for most Werewolf games that are running 3rd Ed. Let me know if you’d be interested in acquiring that information, and I’ll be happy to help.

    How do you handle 1st/2nd ed gifts? Ignore them, post them or look in a revised supplement for an updated version? Will you update the existing gifts with the W20 version when that one is available?

    at

    • Right now I’m only adding revised gifts to the site. Once I have every single one of those done, I may look at some older versions.

      The W20 version — we’ll have to see how they look when it comes out. If it has some differences in gifts but the system is largely the same (which should be the case) I’ll probably tag the W20 gifts and include both the revised and W20 versions on the same gift description, so you can use whichever version you prefer.

    Oh, btw. Is anyone working on a Vampire version of this site? If so, how do i contact them?

    at

    • Not working on a Vampire version — Gotta admit that while I play most WoD, I’m only a gibbering fan of Werewolf (thus the only one I’m willing to put in this kind of work for )

    Let me know if want any help I will give it where I can.

    at

    • I definitely can use all the help I can get — but I have to warn you that entering gifts into the site is pretty dull.

      However, if you are willing, just shoot me an email at brian@northwoodagency.com and I’ll get you set up on the site to start entering gifts!

    Sorry I had a death in the family so that pulled me away from updating info.

    is there a book with all the items in it?
    like weapons,herbs & etc.

    at

    • Alas, no, there is no book that has all the items. Back in the heyday of WtA it was requested fairly often, but line developer Ethan Skemp didn’t feel it fell within the design philosophy of the game to publish a book that was just a collection of stuff, or abilities.

      World of Darkness combat has a huge list of weapons

    What about a garou being born under a lunar eclipse?

    at

    • Ikke

      Pg 129 Rage Across the Heavens.
      ” A Solar or Lunar eclipse during a Garou’s birth is marked down as a definite omen. However, since child-birth typically last much longer then an eclipse’s duration (save lupus), there isn’t any effect on the Garou’s auspice. Anyone born during a lunar eclipse is treated as an Ahroun as usual (lunar eclipses take place only during the full moon). Even so, the effects of an eclipse on a Garou’s birth are hard to argue. The best way to simulate the effects is with Merits and Flaws, usually supernatural in nature; what better way to rationalize your Metamorph ability, or what better forewarning of your character’s eventual Dark Fate.”

      This is a ST box at the bottom of the page in question. Hope it helps.

    Love the site. Aside from a gift database, what other information will become available? Rites? Fetishes? Tallens?

    at

    • I’d love to get all of those — probably fetishes and talens next (rites are a lower priority). But we got a looong way to go to be complete on the gifts, and that’s the first step : )

      at

  18. zhaed

    Sure thing, I have most the books where do I start sending info?

    Also what about Fera gifts, or is this going to be Garou only?

      How are you Z.

        Not to bad, though you should have just aked me on Skype when I talked to you.

    Hey, are you guys planning on including the W20 edition rules as well?

    at

    • Yes, I will be including W20 Gifts — first I want to finish off the last of the original books so that the gifts are properly attributed (almost all of the W20 Gifts are reprints of most of the Gifts from other books).

  20. Thunderclaws

    Hi! First of all thanks for all the gifts. I have one question… how many gifts can I activate in one turn? Does anyone have the answer?
    Thanks in advance!

    at

    • Activating most Gifts is an action (there are some exceptions, which should be in the Gift description, and some Gifts are effectively always active). So you can activate one Gift for every action you have that turn.

      Keep in mind, however, that you cannot spend Rage in a turn that you spend Gnosis. Thus Gift requiring Gnosis are the only thing you can do that turn (exception is if you have the Rank 5 Glasswalker Gift Chaos Mechanics, which lets you spend Rage and Gnosis on the same turn).
