Mind's Eye Theatre: Werewolf The Apocalypse rulebook review

The setting was in the non-canon place called Principality of Hummingbird, but since it's located in the currently inaccessible part of the world map this was not really an issue. Although, the weather on this year's event was so hot and humid that it could have easily been set in the Strang…
