The shadows have always been with us, and so have those who dwell within: the sorcerers, the fae, the lycanthropes and, darkest of them all, the vampires. All have secretly lived alongside humanity, veiled from mortal view, for milennia, but now they are exposed to the light, and the supernatural walks among us.

Early in the 21st Century, the US Government discovered the existence of vampires and sought to eradicate them. Thus began the Vampire Wars, killing thousands, and ended only by the triggering of a nuclear warhead. And now, after the Vampire Wars, the world must adjust to a new reality: one where vampires openly walk the streets, where lycanthropes prowl the urban centres, and where sorcerers tout their services from strip malls.

In After the Vampire Wars, you play the creatures of the shadows: seers, fae, lycanthropes and, of course, vampires. Each species has its own special powers and abilities, and some possess formidable magical and psychic talents. After the Vampire Wars adapts the Mythras rules to the contemporary era and the urban fantasy genre. It supports a wide range of campaign types: from gritty Noir, to fast and deadly cinematic adventure; from whimsical urban fantasy to passion-fuelled paranormal romance.

After the Vampire Wars takes Mythras into new territory and does it with style. Fully compatible with the entire Mythras range, After the Vampire Wars creates a fascinating alternate universe where nothing is quite as it seems and where the supernatural struggles for control with the mundane. Take your first steps into the Shadow World and discover life After the Vampire Wars...

Is this a stand alone product or is the Mythras core book required?

You need the Mythras core book for the best results.

I'm curious. I actually own one of the ashcan copies of Chaosium's After the Vampire (And an ashcan of the new Cthulhu Dark ages but that's nether here nor there.) and I'm wondering if this is a different product that just shares a name or if it's the same or what?

This book a complete overhaul of the old Chaosium BRP version. The rules are updated for Mythras, and the setting has been tweaked too, so there's a fair amount of fresh content.

It's quite possible, although it'll be our Lulu store and not Drivethru.

This piqued my interest into your setting books.

That's excellent, Dani! I hope you like what you see. The Mythras Imperative rules, found here on Drivethru, are free and give you a great idea of the system.

So you could technically get away with running "After the Vampire Wars" using only Mythras Imperative?

You will run into difficulties, because Imperative doesn't include the magic systems - and AtVW relies on them to a reasonable extent. Imperative will give newcomers Mythras a very good idea of the system, before they take the plunge with the full rules.

Thanks but, I owned a copy of Mythras ever since it used to be called runequest 6th ed.

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.
