It Takes More Than Fangs to Be A Vampire!

 

            For years, the legend of the vampire has captivated the minds of mortals, and these dark stalkers of the night have become permanent fixtures of fantasy media and roleplaying games alike. But while vampires in novels, movies, and television each provide their own unique twist or spin on the vampire myth, creating innumerable different interpretations of what it means to be a vampire, for the Pathfinder roleplaying game, at least, there is only one kind of vampire, which fits some styles of vampirism well, and doesn’t fit others at all. Even worse for vampire enthusiasts, the ability to actually play as one of these nocturnal lurkers is incredibly limited.

 

            At least, that was the case until Necromancers of the Northwest changed all that with Liber Vampyr: Secrets of the Blood, a book devoted to making vampiric player characters not only possible, but fully supported. It made use of a new system, called cruomancy, which allowed characters to gain blood points by drinking blood, and to spend those blood points to power various abilities, gained from feats and class features. The book was built in a way that allowed players to pick and choose not just their vampiric powers and abilities, but even their weaknesses, encouraging players to build their own monster to match their vision of vampirism.

 

            Scions of the Vampire: Blood, Shadow, and Smoke picks up where Liber Vampyr left off, by providing 50 new feats and three new prestige classes, as well as several groups of supplemental rules that cover some of the additional concerns of vampirism. The book introduces three vampiric lineages, or bloodlines, each with special powers. Gain power from darkness and make shadows do your bidding as a Shaedross scion, align yourself with the Borsiviaks in order to gain an eldritch mastery over blood, bending and twisting it at your whim, or delve deep into the power of the Montavix to transform into a misty vapor, rendering you all but immune to attack. All these powers, and far, far more, can be yours.

 

            This book expands on and uses the cruomancy rules first presented in Liber Vampyr, a free product which can be downloaded from www.necromancers-online.com.

PURCHASER
In the sections about Borsiviak and Shaedross Scions, there is mention of "Revenant Scourges". Is this from some other material? I cannot seem to find them defined in this material, or in Libre Vampyr.

Format
Original electronic
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.
