The Toreador Handbook

You heard right, this is no Clanbook. The Toreador Handbook is an out-of-character focused overview of the Clan of the Rose, exploring the ideas that form the basis of the clan and then providing all new material for your consumption. Summurizing and ideating on the core concepts of the Toreador, the Handbook breathes new life (so to speak) into this well-known group of Kindred, with fresh takes and honed mechanics. The Handbook explores the history of the clan across the pre-V5 editions, looks at the fundamental elements of being a Toreador, and provides essays on a number of critical issues for the Toreador character, such as relations with their artistic patrons and endeavors towards becoming an Elysium Harpy. It introduces a number of all new setting elements with new rules to back it all up.

The Toreador Handbook includes:

  • A history of the Clan of the Rose, with a spotlight aimed at who the clan founder may have been and what she means to your character or Chronicle.
  • An exploration of just what it is to be a Toreador, with delves into each of the major stereotypes and clan themes.
  • Writing on important topics for Toreador: How to Harpy, Running Major Social Gatherings, and Handling an Artistic Patron.
  • 13 new Merits and 13 new Flaws suitable for nearly any edition.
  • 3 new Toreador-based Bloodlines.
  • One new Discipline and one new Path of Necromancy.
  • New Toreador combo-Discipline powers and advanced Discipline levels.
  • An all new Path of Enlightenment: The Path of Epicureanism.

Don't build a Toreador without it!

Publishers Note: If this book does well, we'll most likely keep publishing more Handbooks for all the clans!

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.
