Accursed Heirs: Dhampirs is a sourcebook for V20 building upon the rules presented in Time of Thin Blood and Beckett's Jyhad Diary that expands the role of half-vampires in the World of Darkness.

Please note: this is a fan-made title, though I've made every effort to emulate the style and quality of an official release!

Children of the Dead


Born half-shrouded in night, dhampirs shook the foundations of Kindred Society with their first infant cries. Now a new generation of demi-vampires stands in the shadow of the Ivory Tower and the fatal arc of the Sword of Caine. Some look upon the nighttime world with covetous eyes, while others burn with the promise of retribution.


Reapers of the Damned


Something stirs from the long-forgotten past. The blood of Caine thickens and settles in the Last Generations, whispering of times more ancient when other half-vampires walked the Earth as God’s punishment upon the Undead...


Accursed Heirs includes:

  • Revised and expanded rules for creating half-vampire characters, from those who serve the Kindred to those who hunt them.
  • Setting updates that bring dhampirs into the Modern Nights.
  • Guidelines for dhampirs predating the modern era, and those born of potent blood.
  • Advice for half-vampire chronicles, including stories where the Kindred acknowledge and cultivate their mortal children.
  • New rules for dhampirs – including 7 character types, 4 new Backgrounds, over 30 Merits & Flaws relevant to dhampirs, and over 20 Bloodrights: powers unique to half-vampires
Content Warning: This product touches briefly on some difficult subjects, including infant mortality and sexual violence.

Thank you! I'm really glad you liked the layout - I put a lot of time into the presentation

I used a Word template from the Vault as a great starting place. It can also be a struggle at times to get pictures to line up properly, or to get the pages to correlate correctly. I learned a lot about Word working on this project! I tried using LibreOffice at first but I just didn't have the fluency in the program to make it do what I wanted it to do.

My only real issue is that these templates seem designed for print editions, since the justification of the iron gate images are staggered on even and odd pages. That's fine if the book is being printed, but looks a little jarring on digital.

Some advice - if you need to do transparency effects, do them in a graphic editor first before adding them to the document (I learned this the hard way). The transparency feature in Word is great and really easy to use, but Acrobat doesn't play nicely with it (most other PDF readers don't seem...See more

I mistakenly bought this product believing it was official release (I was told it was an official product and linked it via DriveThruRPG rather than the STV).

Is it possible to refund the purchase? Thank you very much.

This is actually some rather flattering feedback, Ethan!

Give me a bit to look into refund options. I'll also be sure to make an extra note that this is fan-made material.

I noticed some transparency issues in Adobe Acrobat Reader (this is a known issue with Acrobat). This does not affect the readability of the document, but it currently looks much better in other PDF viewers.

I recommend viewing in Chrome, Firefox, Edge, or in Foxit Reader until I can update the images with pre-rendered transparency.

Format
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.
