God doesn't love me. But He's given me these teeth to spill your blood and these words to speak over your remains. 
And when I do that, He's going to make my dreams come true. 
God is good.
-- Sister Snow, upstart Bishop of New Orleans

Being a vampire is inherently trading humanity for power, but most Kindred don't do it on purpose. Blood sorcery is about wrapping your arms around blood sacrifice or inhuman philosophy and holding it close against your silent heart. As presented in Vampire: The Requiem, sorcery is a series of rituals passed down from hierophant to acolyte, pastor to parishioner. The blood caked on these rituals is dark and dried, and they are ancient and horrible indeed.

That's what this book is: a gory and grand new exploration of blood sorcery from the powers of the great covenants to the dirty secrets of the street to the figures that lurk in the shadowed history of the Kindred.

This book includes:

• A flexible new system for blood sorcery, allowing you to build and enact your own rituals
• Threnodies, sacrificial charms that build on Disciplines and add a little mojo to any character
• A legion of occult antagonists, from the heartless Sons of Phobos to the enigmatic Empty Liars

While some players might feel awkward with Requiem's new direction, I find this to be more of a knee-jerk reaction to the new "edition" that emerges rather than any weakness of the products themselves. The material finally lets go of t [...]

With the Circle of the Crone being my favorite Covenant, I was happy to see the new Theme based system for blood magic that gives much more flexibility with rituals. Only thing I found disappointing is the new system no longer allows the use of Spirit [...]

Blood Sorcery lures us back to the beginning of Vampire the Requiem and takes a long look at one of the most interesting aspects of the game. While blood sorcery has always been “good” it was probably not as well developed as it could have been in [...]

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.
