Truly Terrifying Vampires

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $2.99

The vampire - the quintessential horror of the night.  Yet, all too often such fiends are downgraded to simple and forgetable monsters, often easily defeated.

But not tonight.  Tonight, you will learn who a vampire really is, and just how terrifying they can be...

Quite simply, typical vampires are laughable lightweights.  They're a dime-a-dozen, chiché, and severely troped.  Today, they're just not scary, and they're no longer seen as the truly terrifying monsters they once were.  With vampires having been watered down so heavily, how can any game master hope to give their players a morally interesting and frightening challenge?

By going back to what made them scary in the first place.

In Truly Terrifying Vampires, you'll see the difference between boring vampires of today and the vampires of past (who truly instilled fear in others).  Through options and tables, you'll be able to build your vampire into a monster that your players will both always fear and never forget.  There are a few sample vampire builds (with character backgrounds), and you'll also find several horror adventure hooks to inspire your sessions.

As an ANY RPG product, the concepts in this book can be applied to any game system.

Free Mini-Adventure!

Being released in tandem with Truly Terrifying Vampires is a free 16-page mini-adventure, Thornroot Hill.  Look for it here, on DriveThruRPG.

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.
