A Guide to the Night


From Eventide to Cock’s Crow

For the people of the medieval world, night is a terrifying experience. As the sun draws close to the horizon, men and women retreat to their homes, barring doors and windows against the threats which emerge during the hours of darkness. Many dangers may lurk within the night, concealed in darkness, from wolves and roaming bandits, to the malevolent servants of the Devil. It is unsurprising, then, that many choose to hide from the night, retreating to a place of safety until the arrival of mornings.

 The Mysteries of the Night

A Guide to the Night is a sourcebook for Vampire: the Dark Ages investigating the nature of night, during the medieval era. From the gathering dusk, to the dark and mysterious dead time, the stages of the medieval night have their own distinct and often menacing characters. This sourcebook provides detail and context for both players and Storytellers, allowing them to understand the manner in which Cainites can interact with the medieval world, and the dangers and threats which may lurk within the darkness.

A Guide to the Night includes:

  • A comprehensive examination of night in the medieval period.
  • An examination of how Cainites interact with the night, from hunting and leisure activities, to some of the threats they may face.
  • Rules to allow Storytellers to simulate various aspects of night in the medieval era.

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.
