Watermarked PDF
$15.00

A creaking hunter among dust and cobwebs, you prowl the night places, seeking the souls on which you feed. You have done this since time immemorial, or so you believe; you have no memories of  living as a man-thing like those you catch and eat. But human traces linger; your fingers trace clever arabesques in the dirt of your grave-place and with the flourishes come whispered songs in a language you've forgotten. Far away, in a museum, hangs your portrait in oil by a master five hundred years dead--you might have been lovers but the diary you kept then is long lost.

solo play, optional group play

Hardcopy purchasers note:

This POD hardback is being made available as a discounted option for non-US backers.  It is printed in the UK and can be shipped worldwide much cheaper than I can provide the nicer offset copies from the US.  This hardback is considered the "EU Edition". 

When you order here you are getting this "EU Edition" POD version of Thousand Year Old Vampire.  The POD version is different from the offset version in that it is missing the metallic ink, foil treatment, and all around spectacular cover treatment.  The POD cover also has "Thousand Year Old Vampire" written on it in numerous languages.  The POD version's interior lacks the ribbons, endpages, and super fancy paper.  The offset version has been described as "lush" and "decadent" and "the fanciest RPG book I've ever seen" so know what you are missing out on.

The game contents are identical otherwise.

Wondering about a 1-up version? The 2-up version is difficult to read on tablets, a 1-up would be great!

Wondering the same thing. The 2up layout is awful. Hopefully we can get a modified version soon although I see you asked this last year and have had no luck.

I contacted designer on the Facebook, and he send me 1p version as well as text only version. He said that both versions should be available for download here, and promised that he will look into things.

Request from publisher's site (thousandyearoldvampire com):
"If you are a supporter of the near or far right I am going to ask that you not buy my games. I don't want your money, but more importantly I don't want you to feel comfortable enjoying things produced by the people and systems you want to destroy. I don't want bad people playing my games–and that includes folks who are willing to look the other way while braver bigots perform their hateful work.

Yes this means members of cartoonishly evil hate groups, but it also specifically includes Trump supporters and those Republicans who voted for Trump. You are lobbying for the death of my friends and relations, you are pushing for dangerous authoritarians to destroy the systems that let books like mine come to be. And this goes for equivalent groups outside the US–you know who you are.

People who make art and beauty and fun almost universally revile you and it's time you started to feel that. You aren't welcome here,...See more

I am a republican and I surreptitiously purchased your pdf from thousandyearoldvampire.com. I'm surprised I didn't have to provide some 'credentials' to allow my purchase. But that's ok, because my digital transaction couldn't show you the MAGA hat I was wearing when I purchased it!

So seconding queries re: PoD and getting this in the UK- none of my usual haunts have it and would prefer a hard copy without having to sell a kidney on shipping.

How do I get this printed in the UK - any recommendations? How much would printing it cost (to get a decent-looking book - paperback would do)

Is POD coming back? Is the newer version of the PDF available here too, or only from itch.io? https://timhutchings.itch.io/tyov/devlog/171946/second-printing-pdfs-available

Another person looking for a POD as shipping to the UK doubles the cost of the book.

So is this coming back as POD? I want to buy this, but don't want to miss out on PDF + POD.

Thousand Year Old Vampire is such an interesting and compelling game. The writing prompts, the story, the forgetting.... it's a wonderful time and will create an extremely interesting experience each time. I cannot recommend it enough.

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.
