BLOODY DOTS: The Writer's Guide to Disciplines


Vampires are defined by power.

Carmilla invaded dreams and turned trust to murder. Dracula commanded and became the children of the night. Varney, in all his forms, could not be slain.

You know their powers. Now learn how to create them anew.


Hiya, Rose here! In the dark era of 2013, I led the team that created the Disciplines for Vampire: The Requiem, Second Edition. We were building on nine years of hard-won experience with the system and our passion to give new life to White Wolf's Kindred.

Through development and playtesting, we cracked the secrets of writing great powers.

Now I want to share!

Here are the bullets:

  • Detailed development histories of Auspex, Animalism, Majesty, Protean, and the physical Disciplines.
  • Never before seen excerpts from development and playtest drafts.
  • Anatomies for your own Disciplines, from concept to details.

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.
