At the Crossroads


Demons lead a dangerous existence. Demons are hunted by the agents of the God-Machine, at perpetual risk of exposure, and frequently alone apart from a few close allies. Some demons form or join rings for mutual protection and security. They amass influence in the world around them through cults. They maintain one or more Covers to insulate themselves from the prying eyes of the God-Machine and its servants, building an ever-changing repertoire of shifting identities.  

Demon: the Descent explains the functions, capabilities, and methods of generating pacts as well as their implementation in play. Though some sample pacts are given, and the Storyteller is encouraged to work with players to create their own pacts via roleplaying, the process can be time consuming.

At the Crossroads seeks to aid Storytellers and players by reducing prep time and time investment at the table in the minutiae of pact creation, freeing the troupe to focus their attention on telling the story.

At the Crossroads includes:

  • Summary rules for Pacts and Facades
  • Nine ready to use Pact-seekers

At the Crossroads is small book on Demon Pacts. A lot of the information isn't that useful, but we really liked the section entitled a Collection of Customers that contains little write ups of the type of individuals who would make a Demonic Pact. [...]

The product contains almost no useful content for STs and no useful content for player characters. When buying this, I hoped to see some handy reference which could be used at the table, or some elaborations on pacts, easing the players/pact usage duri [...]

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.
