I was gonna start this as a "Why are the Twilight Werewolves so Hated?" thread, but instead I thought to make it more general. In context, my vampire in Lost in the Darkness is the daughter of a werewolf, but doesn't know it. As of now, these Werewolves are largely based on the Garou of Werewolf: the Apocalypse. Theresa was designed as a Masquerade character, but I F***ing hate Masquerade and have a driving goal to reinvent the wheel so that Lost appears like Masquerade only superficially. But I actually like Werewolf, and don't have the desire to revamp everything. And I'd actually consider paying White Wolf for licence for Werewolf ideas and idioms. Apparently like the Twilight werewolves, the Garou are most at will transformers and vulnerable to silver. In W:tA Werewolves are born, not made, and their human family are called Kinfolk. Werewolves are Gaia worshipping pagans who fight the literal cosmic forces of corruption and all consuming death. So they’re actually the good guys...for the most part. I actually like this dynamic, as it gives purpose and an enemy for the Werewolves, you know, aside from the vampires. How much of this is original? Are there other stories about werewolf genes, and purpose beyond raving feral douchebaggery by the light of the full moon? I am fishing for ideas. I make no bones that most of my creativity is piecing together other people's ideas in a way that hasn't been done before. I know a fair bit about vampire lore, but almost nothing of werewolves. Thanks.
