San Francisco By Night for V5


San Francisco By Night

A city torn apart by war between the vampiric creatures of the night. The cradle of modern music, religious communes, countless artistic movements, and the tech boom. A place said to be dominated by the chaos of Anarch rule, now occupied by the very Warlord of the Camarilla himself. This is more than a city. It is the entire Bay Area, five regions of vampiric power, none of which fit the mold of the typical Camarilla city. From the hedonistic Toreador in wine country to the tech bro Ventrue of Silicon Valley; from the hippies of Berkeley to the modern occupiers of Oakland. This is a city on the edge of the world.

San Francisco By Night includes:

  • A modern take on the history of the Bay Area, stretching from prehistory to the more recent conflicts between the Camarilla and the New Promise Mandarinate.

  • Maps for the Bay Area and all of its subregions.

  • Stats and backgrounds on dozens of characters organized by locality and subdivided into 19 detailed coteries. Characters and coteries are carefully written to be easy to comprehend at a glance.

  • Simple rules for two Bloodlines: Gargoyles and Los Pistoleros (Lasombra descended gunslingers)

  • Five new Coterie Types: Brood, Cohort, Company, Network, and Team of Rivals.

  • Twelve new Predator Types: Communitarian, Dawnwalker, Driver, Haunter, Influencer, Muse, Nomad, Raven, Suit, Thirsty, Vulture, and Warden.

  • New Merits and Flaws: Astrological Traits, Prognosticator, and Zodiac Hunter.

  • Rules for using Astrology as a form of Resonance for hunting, including 24 new Dyscrasias.

  • All new Amalgams to adapt the older versions of Dementation into the Dominate Discipline.

  • Two new Distillation Methods for Thin-Blood Alchemy: Crystals and Making.

  • All new Blood Sorcery Rituals for Technomancy.

Does it feature a scenario or is the focus of the book the setting and the background?

There are no scenarios in it, though I am considering writing one or more adventures in the region in the future, as additional books.

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.
