Damnation City


Look, it's simple:

See that fat lick over there?
With the backpack?
When he steps onto the black asphalt of the parking lot, he's mine. Until then, he's in the fields, where any vampire can take him. I am the lord of this ground, and the penalty for poaching from me is you must drink from me. When you drink the kine that walk on my ground you drink from me.

— Sycorax, Lady of the Blacktop

The City-creation sourcebook for Vampire: The Requiem

The Prince is the master of the city, but he has named you lord of your territory. It's up to you and your cohorts to maintain the Masquerade, influence mortal lives and pass judgment on the Kindred who dwell in your shadow. Are you a tyrant or a saint? Will you pull the Prince's strings or become the Prince yourself?

This book includes:

• Guides to selecting or designing a modern city that's right for your chronicle, and giving that city the World of Darkness's gritty supernatural atmosphere.

• Tools and tricks for running dramatic and suspenseful stories in a crowded and shadowy city, including such new systems as "City of Millions" and "Attitude and Ambience."

• New styles of gameplay for Vampire: The Requiem, called Barony and Primacy, that take advantage of more than 50 urban Districts and unique Sites.

• A guide to the fictional city of Newcastle—a new World of Darkness environment ready for you to customize and activate in play.

No Print on Demand for this? Really? Come on White Wolf. Most of your other books are PoD.

The book itself is amazing. One of the best supplements in the World of Darkness family. Sadly the PDF crashes my PDF reader and I wished it would come in print and EPUB as well. This is a classic so they really should make it available in more formats.

Can anyone help me with if this book is useful for someone interested in running Vampire: The Masquerade rather than The Requium?

This is very helpful in running basically anything that involves cities. All rules obviously speak of Requiem but it should be easy enough to convert it and New Castle is my favourite modern city that I not only use in Vampire games.

I wish to add my voice to the chorus. Bookmarks are a must and I would love to see this as a POD.

Did this ever get updated with bookmarks? Considering purchasing but as it stands, I'd rather just refer to my hardcover if there's no bookmarks in the digital version.

There is a "pirate" version of this book somewhere with BETTER quality than this. Why? All other books looks like a real ebook. This look like just a poor scan quality book. Why?

The downloads for this book now include three versions: one where the book is divided into two halves, and then two versions that contain the whole book. Since this is such a large book, I understand splitting it into two files, but does anyone know the difference between the two whole-book versions? There's definitely a difference in quality, but what about content? Does one have errata or something, or maybe they just forgot to remove the lesser-quality version?

Lesser quality ones are more friendly for personal reading devices, like say, a kindle or an iPad. Takes up less space so you can have more, and it loads quicker.

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.
