New Wave Requiem


Do you remember the 80s? Not that bubble-gum garbage you see on those so-called “music networks,” but the real 80s? World War III was always on the horizon while sex, drugs and money flowed like a river of blood right to us. Vampires were everywhere. The Masquerade was at its thinnest point, but we didn’t care because the world was ours. We kept playing our games, doing our dance, but everyone was afraid that one AIDS-ridden blood doll with a grudge or one neonate with a personal computer and a private investor would decide someday to pull the trigger and make the world burn.

Those were good times.

— Robyn Sloane, Circle of the Crone

This full-color PDF includes:

• A brief historical look at America in the 1980s, from a Kindred perspective.

• Player and Storyteller advice on chronicles set in this time period.

• A Storytelling Adventure System story set in 1983 Chicago, complete with a pre-generated coterie.

• A customized blank character sheet, and a black and white version of the full PDF for ease of printing.

New Wave Requiem is a supplement for the World of Darkness game Vampire: The Requiem.

This product was featured in an episode of the White Wolf Blogcast.

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.

Please resume selling this as PoD please. I don't care about it being b/w or color. Thank you.

I inquired with OPP concerning this and OPP redirected me to White Wolf/Paradox. It has been a few weeks and I have yet to receive a reply.

With how beautiful this book is in color, its a shame its only available for a B&W POD. I'll pass on buying this until its available in color.

I completely agree, and I wish I had done so as well. The color pdf is beautiful. The black and white pod is...meh.

The printed softcover is listed as Black and White. The PDF is full-color. Would it be possible to get a printed full-cover version? There are many other color printed books on the site so I was wondering why it isn't an option here.
Thanks for your help!

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.
