We grow old, but we never grow older. That’s the problem you see. 

Timelessness is not stagnation, we continue to grow and change throughout the years. 

If we don’t, then the world changes without us and we die. 

You may think that with a multitude of people coming, going, dying and running away, we’d be tired, done, or ready to give up. 

Instead, I find myself restless, looking for the next thing. 

There’s always a next thing, and I for one am not yet ready to die.

– Elder Kincaid, Daeva Crone

This book includes: 

  • Detailed instructions on creating elder vampires, including how to base chronicles around them
  • A look into the lives of elders, how they spend their nights, who they work with, and why including their roles in both their clans and covenants
  • New Devotions, Merits, and Rituals for elder vampires
  • The kinds of creatures that pose a threat to elder vampires, including Inamorata, Lamia, Sons of Phobos, a new elder conspiracy, and more

Otherwise WHY would an immortal stay in ONE spot, for HUNDREDS OF YEARS?.. I mean really? It makes no sense.. They can go ANYWHERE, be undetected in other place, anonymous, so WHY STAY?.. Unless they gained something...

You wanna make an "ELDER" book, then in it's domain (ex. it's spent more then 100-200 years in the same place).. Sunlight does NOTHING to it, Or "if u invite it in, YOU CANNOT DAMAGE IT".. That kinda stuff, that's OLD, that's scary.

A good book, but I still don't see the "potency" of Blood potency.. It's basically you get older, you get weaker... (sunlight, etc)... for a vamp to be REALLY potent, it has powers that are OLDER the history, that sunlight is a joke, that you REALLY don't wanna cross, this book, just seems WEAK.

An incredible book which is overdue to be part of my collection, its supremely helpful in my better laying out my elders and if coupled with the Damnation City Book can make just make a Chronicle and City come to life and feel more real and lived in, it gives an added depth to everything and can make the players really feel like an elder, infact im using it as we speak to make a " Prince of the City " chronicle based off the boardgame with the book and Damnation city and my Troupe is super excited big props to everyone who worked on this book!

I got this one and I really liked it, can't wait for the P.O.D. version, I'll most assuredly be getting that one too, I prefer to HOLD the book in my hands rather then just read it off the screen (I do that with enough information all day long. Anyway, I do enjoy quite a lot of this book, quite a few good story hooks.

I have been waiting for the POD version. Any word on when it's coming? Other Onyx Path books have been released and gone to print since this thing came out.

Any news on when the print-on-demand version will become available? Great book. PoD is a must-buy for me.

Would totally buy it if there was a Print on Demand option. I hate reading PDFs I don't retain the info.

See the paragraph at the bottom of the book's description, which reads:

NOTE: This is the Advance PDF and we will be tweaking this based on errata from buyers and then creating the final PDF and PoD files. Purchasers of the Advance PDF will receive a coupon for the PoD so that their combined purchase amount will be the cost of buying the PDF/PoD combo.

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.
