Remnants of Ages Past

The Blood isn’t stagnant. It changes with the times, even if the Kindred that carry it don’t. Every epoch leads to new permutations of the five clans. Some of them die out when they are no longer useful, but others carry on, even to the modern nights. Some have been forgotten. Some are ready to reclaim what they have lost. All retain pieces of the cultures and events that created them.

Weapons for the Present

• Twenty new bloodlines, based on the historical flashpoints presented in Ancient Mysteries

• New Disciplines, Devotions, factions, antagonists, mysterious places and a variety of other options of Vampire chronicles

• Two new forms of blood magic — Haitian Kindred Vodoun and Sumerian Mérges Sorcery

This a great book, but the PDF quality compared to other 1E WoD books seems rather off, particularly given this is a later release in the VtR series. The text and image quality seems quite blurred and lacks the clean look of other WoD PDFs (there's also a white border around the pages which isn't present in other releases). Is there any chance for a higher quality PDF in line with the other books?

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.
