Freak Legion: A Players Guide to Fomori is the primary sourcebook for information on fomori, and one of the few books to provide players with rules for playing characters explicitly identified as antagonists.

SummaryEdit

From the White Wolf catalog:

Chosen by the Wyrm
Pentex wants to sped up the process of human evolution. If nature won't do it quick enough, then Pentex will have to do it instead. Thus, the fomor: a sick, corrupt combination of Bane and human, a superpowered freak unfit for human society, blessed with deadly powers yet cursed with terrible diseases - and now you can play one of these things!
Abandoned by Gaia
Courtesy of Black Dog Games and the Wyrm, find out what life is like among the Wyrm's chosen. Lead assult teams against your Garou oppressors! But beware: A fomor's life is more extreme than you can imagine. Boundaries are crossed and conceptions shattered.
