The Testament of Longinus

Selected Option:

An Ancient Text Revealed and Re-Examined

The story of Longinus is not a secret story, although some would hide it. But neither is it an open story. It requires study. It requires respect. To some it is the final source of wisdom, freedom, survival. To others it is an evil book, the source of all oppression. No matter what viewpoint you hold, the fact remains that the Testament of Longinus cannot be ignored.

It is our history.

- Henry Matthews, Editor of the Revised Edition

A Chronicle Book for Vampire: The Requiem

• An “artifact” book detailing the tenets of the Longinian faith.

• Can be used as a prop in any Vampire: The Requiem or Mind’s Eye Theatre: The Requiem game, or can be used by Storytellers and players as a resource from which to draw new roleplay and story ideas.

• A “revised edition” that digs deeper into the mysteries surrounding the followers of Longinus, including footnotes and anecdotes from characters within the world of Vampire: The Requiem.

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.

Written in the style of an 'in-character' prop, this book covers what Rites of the Dragon does for the Ordo Dracul: a bliblical treatise on the mythology (or some would call 'truth') of how vampires were created by St. Longinus, founder of the Lancea [...]

A fun little addition to the line - non-existent in a mechanical sense, but an intriguing read, nevertheless. Further, and given the weight with which the myth of Longinus carries in 'Requiem' (whether you happen to be a follower or not), it is an impr [...]

This was an unexpected pleasure. The Testament of Longinus evokes memories of religious texts I've read (by choice or not). There's That One Really Boring Book, and That Book Written On Psychedelic Mushrooms. The text repeats itself, contradicts [...]

A Flames Rising Review: Most players enjoy something tangible given to them in a game. It can be as simple as dice, poker chips, and a character sheet; nevertheless, the experience deepens when newspaper articles, photos, and varied memorabilia [...]

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.
