Shadow War


At Twilight the Knives Still Shine

In Kowloon, the bamboo Princes stir insurrection against the bloodless, ancient mandarins of the Quincunx. In Korea, two elders of the Green Courts swear ritual enmity in a midnight war, as each has been told that the other is akuma. In California, freed from the dictates of civilized warfare, the Kuei-jin seek to wash away the hapless kin-jin with sudden savagery. Everywhere, the Kuei-jin are at war.

At Midnight, They Are Red with Blood

Shadow War is a guide to warfare, both formal and otherwise, among the Kuei-jin. From the honorable strife of the twilight war to the relentless savagery of midnight was against the Yama King's servants, from the battles outside the Middle Kingdom to the means the youngest Wan Kuei use in their struggles against their elders, everything a Kuei-jin needs to know about taking the field of battle is here.

Shadow War Includes:

  • The true story of the Kuei-jin invasion of California
  • Tactics and rituals for declaring midnight war
  • Wars of the Kuei-jin against their elders, the secrets of manipulating Scarlet Screens and more!

This is an excellent book as of all of White Wolf although I would rescan it if possible for some pages have a dark background and it seems the font used doesn't show clearly as other books from the series. [...]

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.
