Vampire: The Dark Ages


Vampire: The Dark Ages takes you to the nights before the Camarilla, when kine truly had reason to be afraid of the dark. The vampires of this bygone age ride the dark as lords, play their games with the crowned heads of Europe, and travel to the mysterious lands of the East as they wafe their ages-old war. Come share in the rich terror and heady thrill of the 12th century. Learn what it means to be one of the Lords of the Long Night.
A Storytelling Game of Gothic Horror

Vampire: The Dark Ages includes everything necessary for playing the Damned of the Middle Ages, allowing characters to experience the events that have influenced our age. Witness the growth of the new Tremere clan and the birth of the Anarch Movement. Battle hunters who wield the power of Faith, and savage Lupines whose control of the countryside is as total as the Cainites' control of the cities. Glory and terror await in the shadows of the past... but the darkness that you need fear most is the darkness within.

VtDA is from 1997, and uses VtM 2nd edition rules. DAV is from 2002, uses revised VtM rules, and advances the lore in dark ages

Besides the difference in the rules and the timeline, the feel and theme of those two games is very different. In Vampire: The Dark Ages the theme is Gothic Horror and quite often pure Horror and the world works as a sandbox. There are no fixed organizations and princes and stuff like that. The GM can create whatever he/she wants and the atmosphere is dark and heavy. In Dark Ages: Vampire the theme is Dark Fantasy, moving away entirely from the Horror genre. Everything goes global, same as in Vampire the Masquerade, contrary to medieval culture of that age. Clans are separated to High and Low and most of them belong to specific political Courts. The game imitates too much human medieval organization. It's a total different game from different creators. My vote most definitely goes for the first game.

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.
