The Chicago Folios (Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition)

Selected Option:

A city as large as Chicago requires more than a surface study to find out its secrets. 

Princes, Primogen, and all those other Kindred with titles and notoriety may claim to uphold the Masquerade, but they delight in the undead fame and status. There are others, well-hidden, with deeper secrets, darker ambitions, and elusive sects buried in Chicago and its surrounding towns and cities.

Chicago contains sufficient stories and mysteries to entice any neonate and bewitch any Kindred scholar. From accounts of clandestine meetings to encounters with horrific beasts, these folios provide a deeper insight into the city’s darkest tales. 

The Chicago Folios put any vampire reading them in danger, but through that danger, the possibility of enlightenment.

The Chicago Folios include:

  • Accounts of vampire mysteries in the heartland of America, spanning the activities of Camarilla, Anarch, Independent, and other, even more terrifying Kindred.
  • Dozens of chronicle hooks laid out in a way that any Storyteller, new or old, might use them to start a new chronicle of Vampire: The Masquerade or add fresh content to an existing one.
  • Over 20 individual Kindred with biographies, aspirations, secrets, connections, and purpose for inclusion in any chronicle, whether as antagonists, a supporting cast, or inspiration for playable characters.
  • Loresheets for new vampires introduced in this book and chronicle threads from the Vampire: The Masquerade metaplot.
  • New Blood Sorcery rituals, handling the Thaumaturgical powers devised in the domains of Chicago and Milwaukee.

I'm confused by the purchase options here. It says there's the option to purchase it as a PDF, but also as a Hardcover Standard or Premium color book. However, I haven't been able to find any other place to purchase a physical hardcover of this book. So I'm concerned that selecting the "hardcover standard" option isn't actually going to get a hardcover version shipped to me.
Can anyone confirm that these hardcover options do, in fact, buy you a physical hardcover printed version of the book? Or does it let you download a print-friendly digital version of the book?

Both are hardcovers. Difference is in paper quality and color intensity.

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.
