For every action, there are consequences.
For some, those consequences are eternal.
Inspired by folklore, myth, and legends from around the world, Death's Shadow: The Book of Vampires provides storytellers with a unique resource to explore the dark side of immortality. Allow players to actually dive into the role of vampires, or create exceptional adversaries for your heroes to face.
Designed for the Karma Roleplaying System, Death's Shadow expands upon the vampire presented in Karmic Monsters to offer players and storytellers a wealth of material for their games. This product includes:
The nature of vampirism: The origins of vampires as explored in the Karma multiverse. How vampires are created. New templates (Vampire Spawn and Thrall).
Vampire variants: Example strains of vampirism. The Plague-tainted Bhutas, the magic-wielding Civatateos, the dream jumping Moroii, the seductive Mullos, the horrific Nosferatu, the sun-resistant Upyri, and the feral Vrykolakas.
Enemies of the undead: Allies for heroic players or enemies for vampire PCs. Dwarven Nightstalkers, paladins, vampire hunters, and werewolves. Plus the standard tools of the trade, from special alchemy items to holy water to stakes, and how to use them.
