Candle of the Vampire: The Lord VanDrac Chronicles V.2

Watermarked PDF

A new investigation draws you to the English Countryside and a small village of Ivrad. It seems something strange has been happening at the cathedral there--something involving a candle carved to look like a demon. Candle of the Vampire is an adventure module for the Hammer + Cross Roleplaying game system and is the second volume in the Lord VanDrac Chronicles story arc. Each volume in the 5 book series stands on its own, but all connect to create a greater campaign.

"Each volume in the 5 book series stands on its own, but all connect to create a greater campaign."

Mr. Patterson, you mention 5 books - what exactly are the other 4 books related to this one?

Also, in what order should the player play these 5 books?

Hi, Jesse. The story arc is currently in the middle of its release cycle. This is volume 2. Volume 1 is Skull of the Vampire. The next one will be out next week. Hope that helps.

Where does the original Hammer + Cross book fit into the narrative? Or is it just the core rules that these story expansions build upon? Thanks

The VanDrac Chronicles are a separate story from the campaign featured in the original core rulebook. The core book isn't required to play. These volumes contain the basic rules. The core rulebook has more detailed rules.

Okay, thanks for explaining everything. Your Micro RPGs are the coolest thing to happen to solo roleplaying since Four Against Darkness. Really enjoying your releases! Also your new website is great btw.

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.
