Contribute to help give the Deluxe W20 Changing Breeds Edition a leather bound, embossed, metallic-edged, full-color, deluxe treatment.

The werewolves are not the only changing creatures to stalk the world. The Changing Breeds hunt places where wolves do not tread, from the storm-tossed skies and sun-lost seas, to the jungle depths and broad deserts. Spiders spin their webs, each silken strand reflecting how the world should be. Bloody-handed serpents kill swiftly and vanish into shadow and myth. Hyenas choose the slain and call down the rain as they fight a desperate war for their homeland. The Changing Breeds will take their rightful place in the world, and woe betide anyone who stands in their way.

This book brings the Changing Breeds to life, giving players and Storytellers tools to integrate shapeshifters into the World of Darkness. All eleven Changing Breeds are described in detail, along with the three long-extinct lost breeds. Storytellers who want to breathe more life into an antagonist and players who want to portray a different werebeast will find all of the information they need in this book.

W20 Changing Breeds contains:

  • Details on the eleven Changing Breeds who hunt in modern times, from the Ajaba werehyenas to the Rokea weresharks 
  • Character creation information for each Breed, including Gifts, rites, fetishes, and more besides. 
  • New information on the three Lost Breeds: the Apis wereaurochs, Camazotz werebats, and Grondr wereboars.

This Deluxe W20 Changing Breeds Kickstarter is designed to enable us to create a prestige hardcover edition that will look like a companion volume to the Deluxe Werewolf 20th Anniversary Edition. At least one bookmark, leatherette "hide" cover material, special edging for the pages, and a full-color, 220+ page interior that features new stunning color artwork are all part of this Deluxe package.


As with our successful KSs for Deluxe versions of V20 Companion, V20 Children of the Revolution, Werewolf the Apocalypse Twentieth Anniversary Edition, Mummy: The Curse, and Exalted 3rd Edition, we are posting this in order to give our backers the chance to have a say in the kind of package we'll deliver and to further foster the community of Werewolf fans around the world. The text of W20 Changing Breeds was commented on by our community and subsequently amended by Stew Wilson during the Open Development Process on the W20 Blogs, and, because of their backing during our W20 KS, some of our backers' likenesses will be appearing in the art for this book. We had a blast talking with the community during our previous KSs and fully hope that every backer will enjoy commenting both here and on the WW W20 Blogs: http://whitewolfblogs.com or our Onyx Path Facebook page.



We have a great community and want to hear from more of you, so please comment away!


Because of the incredible response to the PDFs we offered with our last KSs, we are offering several reward tiers that include collections of classic Werewolf: The Apocalypse books in PDF form. (These are offered as they exist on DriveThruRPG and may be scans of the original printed books, or may have been rebuilt as original electronic files depending on their age). These rewards may also be added to any of the other reward tiers by manually increasing your pledge as noted below.

We have included two Retailer Reward Tiers, one US and one non-US, because we want to be able to support all the great Retailers out there who have supported WW for these past several decades. We have a special reward price just for Retailers (someone who owns a store that would sell Deluxe W20 Changing Breeds) and anyone thinking of pledging to those Retailer Reward Tiers needs to contact me: richt@theonyxpath.com to confirm that you are operating or representing a store before pledging, please. Any pledges to those Retailer Reward Tiers which do not have confirmations of status will not be honored when sending out Rewards.


We have US and non-US reward tiers so that the specific shipping costs for physical rewards can be built into the pledges, as there was just too much confusion when we tried to leave it to folks to manually add shipping. We do not, however, try to add in or calculate each countries VAT. That amount, if any, will be an extra charge between you and your customs officials.


It's pretty easy. Contribute any amount you want, bearing in mind the levels of contribution and their commensurate rewards over there on the right. If we hit our $40K goal, you'll get the reward that goes with your level of contribution. PDFs and Print on Demand versions will be made available first in the form of a coupon from our online sales partner, DriveThruRPG. This Deluxe W20 Changing Breeds will take several months from the closing date to print and ship. We will contact contributors in the upper tiers with details on their rewards.

You can Add-on the classic PDF collections to any Reward Tier pledge that already includes a PDF by clicking on your Reward Tier to the right, and then when you get to the pledge page that confirms your pledge amount, manually changing the amount of your pledge from the base Reward amount to that Reward amount plus the amount of each Add-on that you want as listed below :

  • + $10 for the classic Blood Dimmed Tides and Rage Across the Amazon PDFs together.

  • + $20 for the Werewolf: The Apocalypse 20th Anniversary Edition PDF.

  • + $40 for the classic Ananasi, Gurahl, Mokole, Nuwisha and Ratkin PDFs together.

You can also add on individual copies of the Deluxe W20 Changing Breeds to any pledge that already is shipping a physical book by manually adding the appropriate amount on the pledge page:

  • + $50 for a Deluxe W20 Changing Breeds (US)
  • + $70 for a Deluxe W20 Changing Breeds (non-US)

You can add on the W20 Changing Breeds Storyteller's Screen to any reward tier that offers a physical book:

  • + $15 for the W20 Changing Breeds Storyteller's Screen, a sturdy three-panel screen featuring a beautiful collage of W20 Changing Breeds art on the outer side, and on the inside there's a selection of charts and other info to make the Storyteller's job a little bit easier.

You must type in the correct amount calculated by adding the base Reward amount and the Add-ons you want. It does not happen automatically.

If we have contributions beyond our target number, we've planned  several added rewards for contributors. These include such things as added topics as PDFs or even added to the book, a comic for the front of the book, a fiction anthology, maybe even a CB Cookbook:

At $50,000 of contributions, we will create an additional 5,000 word PDF expanded look at the Beast Courts of the Hengeyokai to expand that particular facet of the Changing Breeds. That part of the world is not a focus of W20 Changing Breeds, although they are touched upon, and we have a few more things we can say about the Beast Courts.

At $60,000 of contributions, we will create an additional 5,000 word PDF expanded look at the Ahadi to further explore the culture of this important alliance of Changing Breeds.

At $67,500 of contributions, we will double the word count for the Hengeyokai Beast Courts PDF to 10,000 words.

At $75,000 of contributions, we will create and add to the book an opening Changing Breeds comic book sequence in black and white.

At $77,500 of contributions, we will double the word count of the Ahadi PDF to 10,000 words.

At $80,000 of contributions, we will include both the expanded sections, Hengeyokai and Ahadi, in the W20 Changing Breeds book itself.

At $85,000 of contributions, we will make the opening Changing Breeds comic sequence in full color.

At $87,000 of contributions, we will add more info on the Camazotz to the book including their main populations around the world and the events that drove them to extinction, for players that want to explore areas outside of Europe before the last werebats died.

At $89,000 of contributions, we will create the first Changing Breeds short story PDF that will be combined with further short story Stretch Goals to create a W20 Changing Breeds Fiction Anthology PDF that will be sent to all backers who pledged for a Reward Tier that includes a PDF.

At $90,000 of contributions, we will add a write-up in the Lost Breeds chapter for the "extinct" were-sabretooth Khara, providing similar information to the Changing Breeds write-ups in W20

At $91,500 of contributions, we will create the second Changing Breeds short story and add it to the first story PDF, as we start building a small fiction anthology.

At $93,000 of contributions we will add more info on the Grondr including their role before the War of Rage, what happened to those in the Beast Courts during the War of Shame, and more hooks for bringing them to the modern world.

At $94,000 of contributions, we will create the third Changing Breeds short story and add it to the story PDF, as we start building a small fiction anthology.

At $95,000 of contributions, we will add a write-up in W20 CB of the Okuma werebears, providing similar information to the Changing Breeds write-ups in W20.

At $96,000 of contributions, we will create the fourth Changing Breeds short story and add it to the story PDF, as we start building a small fiction anthology.

At $97,500 of contributions we will add more info on the Apis expanding the information as Gaia's matchmakers, expanding on their lore and history, and detailing their last days.

At $98,500 of contributions, we will create the fifth Changing Breeds short story and add it to the story PDF, as we start building a small fiction anthology.

At $100,000 of contributions we will add more info on the Ajaba expanding the information focusing on those members of the Breed who have fled to Europe, America, and Asia as part of the Breed's diaspora.

At $101,500 of contributions, we will give the creative team a 15% bonus to their pay

At $103,000 of contributions, we will create the sixth Changing Breeds short story and add it to the story PDF, as we start building a small fiction anthology.

At $104,000 of contributions, we will expand the Lost Breeds chapter to include information on both the extinct turtle varna of the Mokolé and the Ratkin Bards, lost forerunners of the Munchmausen Freak Aspect, allowing for historical chronicles or for them to be revived in the modern day.

At $105,000 of contributions, we will create the seventh Changing Breeds short story and add it to the story PDF, as we continue building a small fiction anthology.

At $107,000 of contributions, we will provide more totems, rites, and fetishes for all the Changing Breeds presented in the book, both some old favorites coming back with W20 mechanics and some new entries created just for W20 Changing Breeds .

At $108,500 of contributions, we will create the eighth Changing Breeds short story and add it to the story PDF, as we continue building a small fiction anthology.

At $110,000 of contributions, we will provide the Nuwisha with more info and an expanded Gift list, meaning they don't have to crib quite so much from the Garou.

At $111,500 of contributions, we will create the ninth Changing Breeds short story and add it to the story PDF, as we continue building a small fiction anthology.

At $113,000 of contributions, we will add to the book a Changing Breed-centered look at Australia -- both the region's history, and the state of those Breeds that remain after the War of Tears.

At $114,500 of contributions, we will create the tenth Changing Breeds short story and add it to the story PDF, as we continue building a small fiction anthology.

We have further surprise stretch goals in mind if we go past this...

Whatever the outcome, we're still using these Kickstarter projects to gauge the players' interest in future Werewolf and World of Darkness titles. Using Kickstarter, we're able to produce books more quickly and deliver them directly to the players, skipping the distribution system entirely. Simply put, if this experiment continues to work, we'll make it a business model, and bring you more supplementary W20 material faster, and incorporate your feedback at every step of the way.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Risk: This book isn't created at all even though the goal is reached.
Solution: We have successfully shipped two Deluxe books funded by KS backers, and two more are at press. All those books have taught us how the various pieces of the process works, and the creators of W20 Changing Breeds have over a century of combined experience in the writing, art direction, developing and layout of beautiful tabletop RPG books. The writing and art is already 99% finished.

Risk: Shipping costs soak up pledges that were meant to enable the creation of the Deluxe W20 Changing Breeds.
Solution: I was forewarned as to the extremely high costs of shipping such a big book outside the US (and shipping ain't cheap inside the US for that matter), and was able to find ways to work with other shippers to bring down those costs - both to keep the consumer costs for shipping as low as possible, and to allow us to be sure that shipping doesn't eat up the pledge money supposed to go to printing.

Risk: The books will take a long time to produce and anger the backers.
Solution: We've learned many lessons with our previous Kickstarters and we're becoming much better at estimating the various pitfalls that will delay a KS project. That being said, backers need to be aware that they are enabling a process, and not a pre-order opportunity, and things do sometimes run slower than we want or anticipate with that process. We've found that an open flow of communication between us and the backer community is vital so once the project funds we will deliver Updates on progress at least once a week via Kickstarter as well as our website at www.theonyxpath.com
