Wraith: The Oblivion Style Guide


Welcome to the Wraith: The Oblivion Storytellers Vault Style Guide. This resource will assist you in creating new material for the horror roleplaying game, Wraith: The Oblivion, across its various editions and incarnations.

Whether you are new to writing work for other readers, or even if you’re an established writer working freelance contracts on roleplaying games, you will find this guide useful for getting a grip on Wraith. With this guide you’ll be able to craft elements appropriate to the different editions of Wraith, explain rule variations, and the various historical periods of Wraith. Creators should try and adhere to the moods and themes for the version of Wraith you choose.

We invite you to write the location book you wish Wraith had received, the Guild, Legion, Renegade, or Heretic cult which should have had its own text, or you can write the novel you’ve kept tightly bound in the back of your mind waiting for release. Regardless of what or why, you’ll find that this Style Guide provides guidance on bringing your creation to life. There are some who say Wraith is the most hopeful of the World of Darkness games, even though it has the most depressing outer casing. Whether that is true or not, is up for you to decide, however, having a firm idea of where you stand in this debate will help in the creation of your works for this game line.

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.
