2/17/2019: Updated with quick casting/purchasing reference.

Blood Sorcery: Rites of Damnation takes the systems presented in Blood Sorcery: Sacraments and Blasphemies, and updates them for 2nd edition, expanding upon the improvised ritual systems provided in every way. There’s more Themes, more rituals, more options, and more systems defined for it, and of course, more Risk to enacting these dark magics.

It includes:

  • A complete redevelopment of Blood Sorcery, providing them with a “single roll” ritual system that allows for improvised rituals, studied rites, and mastered miracles, providing more options than ever before.
  • New and updated rituals and Merits, including a simplified system for Threnodies; magic that any Kindred can tap into by ritualizing their Disciplines.
  • Three unique forms of Blood Sorcery used by cults, bloodlines, or those seeking power from whatever source they can find.

There are rules for Gilded Cage here or in some other book?

No Gilded Cage here. I do plan to put out a mini-supplement for this that'll have a lot of the more popular bloodlines' sorceries statted out with these systems though.

Other than the two covenant disciplines, this book covers the Sons of Phobos sorcery, the Sangiovanni (and cattiveria as a Sorcery), and Infernal Sorcery

Will this book be released as a PoD?

If they ever allow Storytellers Vault books to be set up as PoD, I will DEFINITELY be looking to get this and Second Sight: Third Eye set up for it. For the moment, though, it's not an option.

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.
