World of Darkness: Blood & Silk

Selected Option:

 Visit an Age of Wonder and Terror

The year is 1197. It is the Fourth Age of the World, and much that is beautiful or holy is dying. Cainites and other monsters take new steps along the Silk Road, while in the Middle Kingdom, the Wan Kuei rage against the heavens. It is a time of majesty and fear, of magic and blood and it beckons you.

Enter a World That Is Not Your Own

World of Darkness: Blood and Silk is a historical sourcebook for the entire World of Darkness. Here, at last is a historical look at the Kuei-jin of the Dark Ages and their Middle Kingdom. From the intruders from the West to the Hengeyokai of the Fourth Age, everything you need to transport your chronicle to a world of awe and fear awaits you.

Note: The Black & White print editions of this book are not full-bleed. Because of printing requirements there is a small white border around the edge of the pages.

I see one kinda problem in this:

"Example: Lin Hua uses Unity with the Earth to step into a granite cliff face. The Yang Prana masters Mao Gu and Mao Ho pursue him. Mao Gu uses Eightfold Yang Mantle to blast a significant part of the cliff into pebbles and dust. If Lin were standing in the blasted area, he’d suddenly be vulnerable to normal physical attack. However, he manages to move out of the blast zone in time, so Mao Ho goes after him with Semblance of the Scarlet Queen. In spirit form, Mao Ho can then pursue Lin Hua."

But "eightfold Yang Mantle" doesn't HAVE any ability to "BLAST" let alone blast a significant part of the cliff to dust.. It's rather a WEAK level 5 ability, just creating illusions around oneself.

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.
