Brethren of the Crimson Altar


A Pathfinder Roleplaying Game TRIBES supplement by Creighton Broadhurst

Four vampires in the thrall of the Crimson Altar of Kulan-Wyr - an ancient, bloodstained object crafted in the dim prehistory of the world - work to shatter the barrier holding back Death's legions. Stalking streets and alleyways they prey on the hapless and unwary, spiriting them away to a nameless fortress to die screaming upon the bloodstained rock hewn from the very depths of Hell itself!

Brethren of the Crimson Altar presents 16 stat blocks (ranging in CR from 2-15) as well as details of the Crimson Altar of Kulan-Wyr (a sentient magic item of great power and terrible purpose) and four ready-to-use encounters.

The Brethren include:

  • Tregereth Faull: LE female human vampire wizard (diviner) 5/loremaster 8
  • Daveth Goninan: NE male half-orc vampire fighter 10
  • Margh Vosper: LE male human vampire aristocrat 4/bard 9
  • Terl Yarg: NE male doppelganger vampire rogue 5/shadowdancer 2

Brethren of the Crimson Altar is compatible with almost any GM's campaign and can be used in conjunction with The Lonely Coast (a free, 30-page extensively bookmarked campaign setting). Alternatively, a GM can use individual vampires to terrorise his players!

Brethren of the Crimson Altar is an extensively bookmarked 30-page PDF and is 50% larger than previous TRIBES installments.

Brethrem of the Crimson Altar is a Dual Format PDF. The product's zip file contains two versions, one optimised for printing and use on a normal computer and one optimised for use on a mobile device such as an iPad.

This review will give you an idea of why I like this supplement. While I find the product very good, it does have a few quirks you should know about. This PDF makes liberal use of space. I like this in a PDF. It makes it easier to set off variou [...]

The premise is simple: four vampires are not only trapped in their undead state but held by the power of a sentient and malignant artefact, the Crimson Altar... you may drop the lot entire into your game, or use any of the individual vampires as someth [...]

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.
