Bordeaux by Night - Players Guide

Bordeaux by Night - Players Guide


Until the end of the month of April, all of the profits made from the sale of this product will be donated to the fund for the reconstruction of Notre-Dame de Paris. ND is, more than a religious building, a national and historical monument which still mostly depends on the French state for its upkeep. 

Secrets of the Masquerade delivers the biggest project yet!

Bordeaux by Night will be in two tomes. Bordeaux by Night, for players, and Bordeaux by Night, Storytellers Secrets, for the storyteller, coming soon~.

This book overall is edition neutral, but its lore is closer to Revised era books (gangrel leaving the Camarilla...) while its feel and ambiance is 1st or 2nd edition (Behind closed doors personal and political horror). The heavily modified layout is 2nd edition.

Blood and wine come in many flavors

Known for its wine and architecture, Bordeaux hides many facets in its cellars. Open this player guide for Bordeaux and read about the city that was English due to a 12th century divorce and marriage, a city that traded metals and slaves, a city with high technology and world-renowned institutes, a city of patrimony, collaborators and resistants, of the precursors of the Enlightenment ideas and of fierce rivalries with Paris.  And the biggest European sand dune.


Bordeaux by Night includes:

  • An overview of the general and local history and geography;
  • Maps and other visual aids;
  • A small crash course on Just French Things;
  • What is known about notable characters and their coterie charts;
  • A character index, references and further sources;
  • And a special Mr Gone character sheet!

This is a detailed sourcebook that, as a storyteller, I feel I could use to run a short stopover game where players in a french campaign make a stop for a short time in Bordeaux before moving on. As it is a player's guide, it alone isn't necessarily [...]

Publisher Stock #
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.
