Rage Across the Dreamlands.

Because what these werewolves need is RAYGUNS and ALIENS! The World of Darkness properties will go perfectly with campy scifi. Vegas is right near Area 51. It's a perfect fit!


I sorely wish I was making this set up. But I'm not. It was thankfully canned. I did see a document containing some of the cards in early development. AWFUL.

I could not possibly come up with a worse expansion than the real thing.

(I was a playtester)

With the addition of the wrestling cards you can bring fans to worlds with the rainbow windfall ring around them. You can then exploit these fans with ADDITIONAL expansions such as "Monday Night Moon Raiders" and "Thursday Night Titans".
