Bordeaux by Night - Players Guide Revised


Updated on November 26th, 2020 with better compression, a few image changes, and some typo fixes/rewordings. Mayor/elections updated due to elections.

The new, revised layout version of best selling master project Bordeaux by Night is now available!

This new layout fixes some accessibility issues, including when it comes to reading the maps and the coterie charts (now fully PDF-friendly and not image). A new proper disclaimer alongside a special "No Fascists" rule has been added for clarity.New art has been added with links to the artists' medias for you to be able to commission your own. These include VtM long time fans such as Bella Bergolts and Edouard Noisette. Chris "Mr Gone" Leland's character sheet was also included. Audio files of myself pronouncing the names of the NPCs has been added as well (with some variants offered), for your entertainement. 

Bordeaux by Night - Players Guide is part of a two book project by Secrets of the Masquerade.

  • The Players Guide contains all the geographical details about the city and larger domain of Bordeaux, its praxis, the public known opinions of the NPCs about each other and so on. It's an introduction to France and to Bordeaux as a city, and Bordeaux as a domain, foreigner-friendly.
  • The Storytellers Guide contains the true history of the city, important events ever since the domain was established, the true opinions about each other, all sorts of other supernatural critters, each character's background and how they perceived certain events, and obviously, story leads and starters for a one shot or for a campaign. Misinformation, hidden details, betrayals, lies as big as houses and as tiny as just a last name change, all create unique plot hooks that the PCs are in stellar positions to navigate.

This book overall is edition neutral, but its lore is closer to Revised era books (Such as the Gangrel leaving the Camarilla...) while its feel and ambiance is 1st or 2nd edition (behind closed doors personal and political horror). This book contains everything that is publicly known, common knowledge by locals. The secrets are in the Storytellers Guide.

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.
