We’ve met before, you and me.

Sure we have!

I was the panic when they left you all alone.

I was the shame when they said they didn’t love you.

I was the hate when you brought down the knife.

I’m every ugly thing you’ve ever done or been,
and I have so much more to teach you.

— Dottie Tonner, Necropolis Underqueen

The Haunts terrify and fascinate the All Night Society in equal measure, yet for all the nightmares they visit upon their Kindred, none compare to the horrors they save for themselves. Now, for the first time in over a decade, return to the rotting underworld of Clan Nosferatu.

Better Feared is a complete guide to the Nosferatu, with updates and expansions to their first edition clan book, The Beast That Haunts the Blood. It includes:

  • Eight Haunt bloodlines: The Cockscomb Society, Gethsemani, Lygos, and Yagnatia, resurrected for a bloody reunion, along with newcomers to the family crypt like the Acteius, Candymen, Keepers of the Dark, and Von Schrecks.
  • A tour of the Necropoli, Nosferatu-exclusive domains where Haunts can fester in peace, including rules to build your own, five examples from around the world, and featuring the return of Cymothoa sanguinaria, the vampiric parasite.
  • Three ghoul families and three Night Horrors to serve or torment your Haunt characters: Listen in on the Gravenors’ dire prophecies, and try to keep downwind of the Noctuku, apex predators of the Damned.
  • Brand new fiction from the Chronicles of Darkness: Chicago setting.
  • Devotions, Merits, and other tools for players and Storytellers alike!

The writing team behind this (and the equally superb Mekhet sourcebook) have written and designed a supplement that is so good I thought it was an official second edition clanbook. The Nosferatu are my favourite clan and this book does an even deeper [...]

Better Feared Nosferatu is another quality book for VtR. The book opens up with a wonderful piece of fiction by Kelly Clark. The book then details eight Nosferatu bloodlines, four of which are updated from 1e, and four which are new. The book the [...]

I really enjoyed Better Feared: Nosferatu. This book includes a number of player options for 2e in the form of Bloodlines and Ghoul Families, a few example settings filled with plot hooks, and some antagonists which could really send a chill in the bac [...]

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.
