Funny / Werewolf: The Forsaken

  • The Iron Master stereotype toward Storm Lords gives us an amusing case of confusion regarding preys:
  • One of the texts in the second edition book provides us with a werewolf visiting a Wolf-Blooded friend's appartment, only to be disgusted by how dirty the place looks. Leading to this line:
    "You're supposed to have the blood of a wolf, not a pig."
  • The Second Edition grants new abilities for some of the forms. The name for one of the Dalu's new abilities? "Badass Motherfucker".
  • Some of the Ghost Wolves stereotypes are pretty funny as well:
    • Their stereotype toward Hunter in Darkness is "You're psychotic." Cue their stereotype toward the Pure:
    "No, I take it back. These guys are psychotic."
    "Alpha-male macho bullshit? Pass."
    • But probably best is their stereotype toward Vampires:
  • The opening fluff for the Rahu in second edition follows a Rahu werewolf near the end of a hunt for a spirit. During the struggle, she shifts into her near-human form. She waits for the spirit to charge her...and it doesn't. Then she realizes the problem-she's still in her near human form. She whispers an apology, saying she meant no disrespect, then shifts into her war-form (a full on man-wolf that is the Urathas favored battle-form) and the spirit charges. It's clearly meant to show the respect that can be shared between predator and prey, but just the image of the two of them just...pausing, in the middle of pitched combat because the Uratha isn't in the right form can inspire a chuckle or two.
  • One of the sample Idigam provided in 2E, Lul'Aya (also known as "the False Father"), is obsessed with Father Wolf to the point he wants to essentially become him, even going as far as basing his appearance on him and actively trying to take Luna as his mate and the Uratha as his children. The whole thing is played for horror, insisting on how he essentially is just a grotesque parody of the real thing, but it is actually rather hilarious in that he makes such a poor impersonation he ends up suffering what is possibly the universe's most spectacular Pretender Diss: the Forsaken don't buy it for a minute and actively hunt him, the Pure feel so insulted he has become a walking Berserk Button for them and they are sometimes willing to do an Enemy Mine with the Forsaken against him, and Luna apparently is so horrified by his lust for her, his sole presence sends Moon Spirits into homicidal rage. And he still doesn't take the hints.
