The Endless Death, Volume Two: The Blood of Caine


The Blood of Caine...

Born in murder and primal blood magic, the horrific violation known euphemistically as the Embrace is neither a quick, clean, easy act, nor a darkly alluring initiation into sensuality as the Gothic imagination might hold. It instead consists of a violent divorce of the body and soul called the Katabasis, and the Becoming - a week or more of abject humiliation, suffering, and dehumanisation.

…Flows Along Many Courses

The Damned are anything but homogeneous. Even within their many extended families are found diverse strains of vampirism, with traits drawn from founders both famous and enigmatic, malevolent and (rarely) benign. These Lineages may exist to their parent Clans as vital pillars upholding the greater structure, bizarre fringe groups best kept at a distance, or outright rejects who bring only shame and disrepute.

Book One - Genesis includes:

  • The Katabasis, the journey to the Underworld which tests a childe’s worthiness to her Clan’s blood, and more precise rules for Embracing.

  • The Becoming, the gradual but traumatic change from human to vampire which follows the Embrace.

  • Means for existing in a state between Clans, or even changing Clans, called Imprints - which are neither simple or without cost.

Book Two - Genealogica Vampirica includes:

  • Over forty Lineages, additional character choices which delve into specific concepts within Clans.

  • Mechanical benefits and drawbacks which alter gameplay - sometimes quite radically - for Lineage members.

  • Lineage trees to help determine and track characters’ vampiric ancestors, which are almost entirely drawn from the Vampire canon.

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.
