It’s a mistake to think of vampires as simple parasites that latch on to an unlucky victim and drain them until they drop. No, they’re not ticks. 

They’re spiders.

Kindred lure victims into their webs and form a ring of protection and sustenance around themselves. And spiders, like vampires, are cunning. They ensnare the small and the weak, but some bind the strong and the mighty.

Think of the spider when you consider the vampire’s herd, the vampire’s retainers, the vampire’s allies. They’re all theirs, caught in a web surrounding a predator. Some even fool themselves into thinking they want to be there. They think that proximity to the predator is a boon, or maybe, just maybe, the predator will see them as a creature with a use greater than sustenance.

Do not fall for the lies of the vampire, recruit. Throughout their webs are trails of ash and bone, from all their friends, loved ones, companions, and cultists.

The vampire cannot help but be the hungry spider. 

Trails of Ash and Bone includes:

Four stories, each of a different theme, one set in the forests outside Copenhagen, another in decadent Atlantic City, one in arcane Florence, one the last in urban Birmingham.

A set of fully playable ready-made characters, enabling a group of Vampire players to jump straight into one of these stories.

New Loresheets and Oblivion Ceremonies, expanding the range presented in Cults of the Blood Gods.

One big problem that WoD aways had. If the character goes out of USA or Europe the character gets a dumb story. [...]

Onyx Path Publishing does it again. And by "it", I mean add a wonderful addition to the series! Taking elements found in both Children of the Blood and Cults of the Blood Gods, this book marries the two: The Wellspring [...]

I'm not a big fan of chronicles-focused books (even if it has some powers and loresheets), but this one hit it right with me. Although I'm biased cuz I love me some Giovanni Chronicles, and Old Wounds and The Family hit it right at home. Open [...]

tl:dr - Whether you're a Storyteller looking to work elements from Cults of the Blood Gods into your chronicle, a new ST starting off, or just looking for a short story to run, I highly recommend this supplement. Trails of Ash and Bone is a [...]

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.
