Book of the Damned


A Beast I Am, Lest a Beast I Become
"The need comes upon me, a tide of lust and craving that I cannot resist. Like a tree against the storm, I will not bend, but eventually i will break. I may contain my desire for week upon week, allowing the agony to mount, but eventually I can resist no more and I must kill again..."

The Children of Caine

Their unlives are pageants of rich excess, while their perversions are sources of unspeakable horror. they are the spawn of Caine, the First, the one forever damned. Now learn the secrets of these immortals and the origins of their ancient enmities. Prepare yourself for a shocking journey into the depths of damnation. This volume describes, in lavish detail, the undead rulers of the World of Darkness, and their twisted society. The Masquerade is at last unveiled.

According to the back, this book reveals the secrets of the Kindred, such as who the clans are and what words they use. There are also some parts that talk about intrigue and politics. It's all the sort of stuff you'd get in the core books in some detail. This might be good to give to players who don't have the core rules, though, if your setting is still in the early 1990s (or if you want to limit meta knowledge for some reason).

Here's the TOC:
Foreword: The Vampire - An Eternal Archetype
Chapter One: Smoke (fiction)
Chapter Two: The Book of Nod (a different, truncated version to the one that's in the little black book of the same name -- this is interesting but not really anything new)
Chapter Three: The Damned - An Exposition upon the Living Death (Kindred society and physiology)
Chapter Four: Streets of Blood - The Gothic-Punk World
Chapter Five: Rebirth (fiction)
Chapter Six: Lexicon
Epilogue: Monsters, Monsters Everywhere

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
