I know that look of disgust in your eyes.
You can't hide it from me.

I've seen all its expressions in many faces like your own.
I am intimately familiar with rejection.
Yes, these scars and stitched wounds are horrifying to behold.
Were I truly alive, they'd be enough to kill me.

But I am not alive.
Not yet.

Not in the way you know it.
A fire burns within me and animates this dead flesh,
these legs that have wandered the far regions of the Earth,
these hands that have killed men.

And I walk with a purpose.
You will not stand in my way.
These hands have killed men.

A Storytelling Game of Stolen Lives

Prometheans are soulless corpses animated by a mysterious, alchemical force, the Divine Fire stolen from the gods. Their hideousness forces humans, animals, and even nature itself to reject them on an instinctual level. They wander the dark places of the world, seeking what their creators denied them: humanity.

A New Game set in the World of Darkness

A whole new type of character for players, inspired by the classic Frankenstein monster and the worldwide myths of Golems

Explores aspects of the World of Darkness unknown to the other game lines

Strange new antagonists and mysteries to unravel for players of any World of Darkness game

Note: The Black & White print edition of this book is not full-bleed. Because of printing requirements there is a small white border around the edge of the pages.

Why are you selling the first edition in printed form and the second in electronic form? There is no notification of this in the description. I paid for a printed copy that useless to me. This is very annoying, because I greatly prefer to work from a printed copy.

Some might call it pretentious to make a game that claims to examine the very nature of humanity. I would call it brave, compelling, the kind of thing that designers should strive for if they’re serious about elevating roleplaying as an art form. Then again, I AM pretentious.

Tonally, this is a bit of a weird one. The gothic moodiness (and teenage angst) that characterises the World of Darkness is here in full force – you are an abomination, everyone hates you, Mother Nature herself recoils at your presence etc. But despite it all, and unlike every other WoD game, there is still hope. You CAN be cured, you can become human and leave your artificial life behind. Even a campaign that sustains a monotony of darkness and despair will seem more colourful for having a light at the end of the tunnel.

The fatal flaw of Promethean is in the Milestone system – the life lessons each Promethean must learn before their quest for humanity is complete. Each set of Milestones is created from scratch...See more

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.
