Selected Option:
Hardcover Color Book (Premium Heavyweight)

PDF + Hardcover Color Book (Standard Heavyweight)

Travel the long roads and deep seas in search of power and experience danger, or tackle the wilderness to hunt monsters and face death. Settlements large and small dot the black expanse with the promise of sanctuary, life, and community. These bastions of civilization present cold comfort, when playing host to vampire warlords and sadistic Cainite faiths. Whether led by a Prince, a coordinated belief, or hounded by monsters from without and within — no domain is truly the same as another.

Dark Ages Companion includes:

• Domains scattered across the world, from small fiefdoms to massive cities. Bath, Bjarkarey, Constantinople, Rome, Mogadishu, and Mangaluru each receive coverage.

• Apocrypha including plot hooks, new Paths, and mysteries to explore in your games.

• A how-to guide on building a domain within your chronicle, including events and servants necessary to make a domain as functional or dysfunctional as you wish.

• A study on warfare in the Dark Ages period, so combat in your chronicles can gain authenticity and lethality.

I am opening this discussion regarding the matter of Xmas in July containing this product (V20 Dark Ages Companion) only two months after the initial PDF release and only 10 days after the finalized version and print version were released. I am not writing to rant against DriveThruRPG over a matter of $3.75 and I fully intend to continue to purchase all of my products from this site. I am only writing to articulate a feeling of this being somewhat unfair, but as I previously stated, it is only a matter of $3.25 on the PDF version.

I will not be contacting DriveThruRPG directly, as I do not believe this matter should clutter their inbox while they may have more urgent matters to address, but I do want to state my opinion. I am not sure if the employees of DriveThruRPG will read this post, but I hope that someone does and takes this into some consideration. Again, the purpose of this is not to rage against DriveThruRPG, but merely to express my opinion on this matter. I have recently purchased the...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.
