I simply can't believe NOONE took the time to comment on this book! This is the ONLY book I have 2 copies of, (one's worn out, the other's untouched, NEITHER'S FOR SALE!:) and frankly the ONLY book I ever WANTED to have 2 copies of. The artwork is excellent! The rules and details are bone-chilling terror combined with unusual clarity for White Wolf/Black Dog! I read it from cover to cover, had a chance to play a demon-possessed creature twice in my life now (as a plot device). Although I totally ADORE the book, I run a TableTop game and an online game (guidelines don't allow webpages so e-mail for details if you want them:), and would NEVER allow such super-powerful creatures to exist as Player Characters...but they sure do make for FANTASTIC plot devices! You're lucky (and hopefully over 18) if you manage to get this out of print book!!! :)

Freak Legion is not as gruesome as one might imagine. The material isnt overtly stomach churning(the opening comic is dire but not that bad)but it is still enough to warrant a bit of maturity. A fomori is one of the more tragic aspects of the Wyrm's corruption of humankind; they didnt ask to be made into monsters, and Pentex plays on their helplessness. While a fomori may be very powerful in combat against a Garou, it is ultimately a tragic monster that is manipulated by the evils of Pentex and the Wyrm. Keeping in line with the "Dark Side" aspect of the Wyrm, one is lulled, never forced into bloody service to the Wyrm. This is an excellent sourcebook on playing these tragic yet very powerful lost souls.

Good ST Resource, a tad disgusting 11 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am a staunch White Wolf player, and have purchased 80% of my books right here from Amazon.com. They're faster and more reliable than my local retailer, so I've amassed almost every Werewolf: the Apocalypse book in print, with a large collection of Vampire: the Masquerade. This was my first Black Dog book, and also one of the more useful ones I own.
White Wolf seems to not go so much "adult" in terms of pornography as it does on a "lets see how gross we can make it." The entry comic is enough to turn a weak stomach, so definitely keep it out of children's hands -- just as the company suggests. It had a healthy spattering of profanity which wasn't necessary at all times in this reader's opinion, tossing it in possibly to put the "adult" rating on it instead of for emphasis. In today's era, however, that's easily overlooked. Once you get past the general disgusting aspects, or if they don't bother you, the book itself is an excellent resource. It develops the Formori by leaps and bounds over the Book of the Wyrm First or Second Editions. In Freak Legion, you not only learn the in depth history of various Fomori types and breeds, but you also have a full list of how to create and build them with the special powers (and the taints it costs them to be in servitude to the Wyrm.) It was very informative, and excellent fodder for even the Vampire Storyteller who might want to introduce a new element into their game to throw of players who have already "been there, seen that, done that" with V:tM. Pentex certainly doesn't have to be Werewolf specific with a Malkavian antribu on its board of directors, and the company itself is outlined in some ways which are "political" similar to Vampire, although that isn't the focus of the book. All told, I would recommend this book to any serious White Wolf Storyteller. There is a small chapter with ST Guidelines to go from splatter horror, to possible politics, to a good old fashioned "blaze of glory" situation. There's something for almost everyone. A great companion to Book for the Wyrm Second Edition.

Disgusting, gory, graphic, terrifying... I LOVED IT!!! 4 Mar. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com

Must have for mature STs who whant to use fomori. 3 May 2008
By J. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The other books don't go much into fomori save maybe the book of the wyrm. Fomori are some of the most heavly incountered supernatural nasties in the phsyical world... they are simply everywhere thanks to pentex's spreading of curuption.

Regardless of how you whant to use one in your game this book is a must have for such, there is pages apon pages apon pages of example powers and taints for you to use derectly or as a guide to make your own. There is about as many here as all the werewolf gifts with a wide aray. Rather combative powers, stealthy powers, seductive powers, just about anything you can think of..... and LOTS and LOTS and LOTS of realy SICK ones.

Thats about the only down fall of this book, some people will just down right be groosed out by this book some of the stuff in here is down right horable and wrong.... but this is the wyrms affects on men at it's worce, so what do you exspet.... DEFFENTLY a book for adults only.

One very intresting thing this book opens up is alowing people to have PC fomori rather tring to be good or not, you can let some one play one in your game. Or to make things realy intresting play a game with a buch of humans that start getting fomori taints together... various taints showing up more and more before they sudently found that they got powers along with them. And leave them to deside what to do about it when pentex comes knocking at there door.

Some of the possablites here for bad guys is impresive too, not just the brutish or out right nasty looking fomori there use to dripping with taint... but you can have one that not only feelts taint free with powers, but will feel like there dripping with wyld essence, looking perfectly human... using powers that make them very sugestive, only doing the most terable of horid tricks when they get one of the party members alone.

Overall grate resorce for ANY Word of darkness game, even a game in of it'self, but not for the faint of heart.
Perfect! 30 July 2013

The images and stories are well crafted and are giving great ideas for adventures. Furthermore, he explains in detail the creation of fomori and its various types.
