Quick Ref

  • Developing your Concept: Start out by logging in and typing "+concept shifter=<concept>" and give us at least a few sentences about what you intend to play.
  • Sending your Application: When your concept has been reviewed and approved, prepare and email your application (form below) to
  • Statting Your Character: Use Revised (which is the same thing as WW20) mechanics to stat your character (so for example, we do use Dodge and secondary abilities: a list of the abilities we use can be found here). When you pick your Gifts, however, keep in mind that we use the 20th Anniversary Edition Gifts, with select Revised imports.



We are not currently accepting lone wolf concepts or Black Spiral Dancers.


We do not accept the following:

  • Backgrounds: Weaver-Touched, Wyld-Touched, and Wyrm-Touched
  • Merits: Silver Tolerance,

Cross-Sphere Applications

Garou Mediums are possible, but will be limited to the Merit (and not the Numina). Abominations are right out: none of that. We do not currently accept Garou who also belong to a secondary sphere (so no Garou-Psychics/Sorcerers, Garou-Ghouls, Garou-Consors/Acolytes, etc).


Please fill out the application and email it to If you wish to submit a backstory in addition to the application, then you may do so at your choice, but the application itself is strictly required for approval. Please keep all emails in the text based format as some things are much easier when we can cut and paste from the email. Please follow the format here on the wiki beginning with Basics. Thanks!
