Forsaken: The Edge of Everything
What’s leisure time without homework?
To help folks earn extra XP and to flesh out the people, places, and story of , I will be assigning projects to the group and/or individuals after every game.
Unless stated otherwise, projects are due two weeks after being first assigned. Even the longest projects should take no more than one hour to complete.

The Oath of the Moon
Due: Sunday, 4/07/13
Instructions: The time has come to swear the Oath of the Moon before Thunderbird’s Last Echo, and officially become a pack. Here are your three options for doing so:
- Memorize the English version, and recite it without reading or cues – Mistakes are allowed, but you must basically get it right and not leave anything out.
- Read aloud the First Tongue version
- WORTH 2 XP! Memorize and recite the Oath in First Tongue. If you go this route, you may be reminded if you forget a line.
Weres on Wheels
Due: Sunday, 3/17/13
Instructions: This one’s very simple. Find an image of your character’s ride and upload it to your character page, anywhere in the bio text. Any image you like is great, so long as it represents what your character rides around on. Try to pick something the suits your character. Here is an example
Walter: Same deal as the wolves, except we all know what you’re drivin’! Show us the Fit. :-D
Oath and Auspice
Due: Sunday, 03/10/13
Instructions: Having read your Tribe’s section in The Rage: Forsaken Player’s Guide, describe your character’s view on the following somewhere on your character writeup. This can be as long or as short as you like, so long as you get your point across.
- Tribal Oath – No Uratha chooses a tribe whose oath he does not want to fulfill. How does your character approach upholding his Tribal Oath? For example, how does James honor his territory in all things?
- Auspice – In what way is your character a good example of his Auspice, as interpreted by his Tribe? For example, what makes Luc a good Blood Talon Rahu, and not just a good Rahu?
Walter! Siten Uzu are the result of a Fox spirit seeking asylum in a willing human host, subsuming its will to the human’s and granting him its power. Answer the following questions:
- What drove the spirit take such a drastic step?
- Why did it choose Walter as its host?
- Why did Walter accept the bargain?
A Quest Called Tribes
Due: Sunday, 02/24/12
Instructions: Read your Tribe’s chapter in “Rage: the Forsaken Player’s Guide”
It’s real simple, folks! I’ve emailed you all a PDF copy of “Rage: the Forsaken Player’s Guide.” Just download that and read the entry for your tribe in the first chapter. Please pay special attention to your tribe’s approach to your Auspice, and to your two Primary Renowns.
Julia! Since you have no tribe, please read Appendix I: The Spirit World (WtF 250-285). This will pretty much be required reading for everyone at some point, but since you’re playing a spirit-ridden, you’re the only one who’s gonna get XP for it.
Bridges and badges
Due: Sunday, 01/06/12
Instructions: Create interpersonal connections with 2 NPCs plus put up your rank insignia
- Open the Characters tab

Flesh and bone

Instructions: Fill out your character bio and upload a portrait
- Find your PC under the “Character” tab.

Just get the major events and important details down so players have something to reference. It can be silly, but it must be useful as as a record of your adventures. Don’t worry about editing or getting fancy with wiki cross-referencing, though you can if you like.
