Detroit by Night


The violence and urban decay of Detroit is the subject of much embellishment, but there is some truth in the stories. A city of skyscrapers and major industry, the best days and nights of the Motor City are seemingly behind it. But mortal Detroit is a paradise compared to the nightly carnage of the Sabbat. With no archbishop to govern them, surviving to sunrise sometimes depends on a pack’s collective courage, cleverness, and a little bit of chance. Most unenviable of all are the peacekeepers, the enforcers, who do what they can to control the chaos in a city of anarchy.

Storytellers using Vampire: the Masquerade 20th Anniversary Edition can use this book to craft Sabbat chronicles set in modern Detroit, with a special emphasis on episodic procedural-style stories. Whether they serve an ambitious bishop, a Black Hand commander, or a visiting Inquisitor, player characters can be the agents of order and justice (or injustice), with advice on this format and its advantages and disadvantages. This supplement is best used for an action-oriented game.

Detroit by Night includes:
• A list of notable NPCs in Detroit, including from the Black Hand and Inquistion;
• A thorough but concise history of the Sabbat in Detroit;
• An outline of the major neighborhoods of Detroit, with Cainite domains; and
• Storytelling suggestions for running an episodic procedural-style game.

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.
