Surrender to the Dark Side

Every wraith has his own personal whisperer in darkness, telling him what it's a very good thing to be bad. (And it is, it is - trust me.) They call the voice the Shadow, and every wraith must strive to resist its efforts to drag him down to Oblivion ( Why! It's always more fun heading downhill! ) This Shadow will urge the wraith to untold acts of depravity and evil until he is lost forever to the Void. ( So, like, does anyone have a problem with this! )

You and Your Shadow....

The Shadow Players Guide discuss the less pleasant half of a wraith's personality, the part of a wraith's soul that wants to fast foward the plunge into Oblivion. In other words, it's all about the nasty fun part playing Wraith, so buckle up and get prepared for a hell of a ride. Want to find out how Shadows work around the world? Need to see the top-10 Shadows, dirty tricks? Have a yen to char with a Shadow who actually enjoys getting Castigated? All that and more hides between these covers, waiting for you.

The Shadow Players Guide Contains:

- The ins and outs of the Shadows of the Risen; Wrecking the Shinkinds for fun and profit! Wheeee!
- New Merits, Flaws, Thorns and more; More toys for the arsenal - we're loaded for bear!
- And of course, dirty tricks galore. You were expecting maybe recipes for chocoplate-chip cookies! Whimp.

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.

Didn't get the PDF, so i'll only talk about the softcover book: printing is great, the cover is very nice, and if you forget about the white borders on every pages, it definitely looks like a first printing. For a very reasonnable price, i ha [...]

This is a review of the print on demand-product, not the book itself. This is an excellent product. The art is crisp and clear, the writing is perfectly legible, despite the infamous white print on black. I was slightly surprised that they opted [...]

I have to agree with the previous review - good book, bad PDF. The content is good - but you have to struggle though reading white text on black background for the entire book. This also means that it is pretty-much unprintable; you CAN e [...]

Can't comment on the PDF of this book yet (used to own the hardcopy but it vanished), but, for content, this book is great. If you like having shadows in the game at all, this can only add to your game. New Thorns, tips on playing shadows, all kinds of [...]

The book: The Shadow Players Guide is an invaluable addition to any Wraith game. CH1 is a general introduction to playing Shadows and what they're after. CH2 is the Systems and Dirty Tricks chapter that not only includes new Shadow archetypes but also [...]

Original electronic
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.
