Born of Darkness

Saulot has fallen, and to what end? The demon Kupala rages in his ancestral home at whose behest? Beneath the dead soil of Transylvania pulses an undying heart, but for how long? The prophecies of Gehenna are coming to fruition in the Dark Medieval world. Only those who would defy destiny itself can stem the dark tide of the final nights

Bearers of Unholy Light

Dark Tides Rising, the first of the four-part Transylvania Chronicles, takes characters on the ride of their unlives--through the epic annals of Cainite history. Coteries play vital roles in the Nosferatu Zelios' titanic struggle to bind dread Kupala, in treacherous Goratrix' return to the Tremere's Ceoris chantry and in the Anarch Revolt itself. The Transylvania Chronicles cross over with Vampire: The Masquerade and span 800 years of Cainite and mortal history. Players now have a chance to make history.

Dark Tides Rising Includes:

  •  The Springboard for a four-part epic chronicle
  • An examination of eeveral ongoing plot threads in the World of Darkness, including the inevitable coming of Gehenna
  • An opportunity for player's characters to assume formative roles in momentous Cainite events, even the formation fo the Camarilla and the Sabbat

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.
