Want start a V5 chronicle fast? The V5 Quickstart "The Monsters" is now available!

In a small American town, someone is killing people and taking their blood, which is always a problem for vampires. If it is a human being, it might draw attention to the true predators of the night.

If it is Kindred, the Masquerade is in jeopardy. If it is something else...

In this quickstart scenario of Vampire: the Masquerade fifth edition, you and a couple of friends will portray inhuman vampires doing their best to stay unliving in a world filled with peril. In this particular instance, they have been tasked to find a killer before the increased police and civilian scrutiny causes trouble for the vampires in the region.

The bookmarks are honestly the worst. Someone needs to go back to PDF school :/ Also why isn't the text aligned left and right? Why do the character sheets, meant to be printed, have this ink-wasting background?
Story looks nice enough though, I just wish this multimillion dollar worth IP was treated with better polishing when releasing products. Will rate and review as soon as it's been played.

Had a lot of fun running this scenario. If you're familiar with Vampire you'd want to make some up some extra details for the city you're playing in, and maybe give the vampire NPCs clans and some more detail. Our playthrough lasted for about 6-7 hours, and that was without the "red herring" part provided. Overall a good introductory story to V5.

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.
