Record of the Hungry Dead: A Rebuild of Kindred of the East

Suggested Price $4.99
Enlightenment or Annihilation

The vampires of Asia walk in secret among the mortal herd. Once human, now the Hungry Dead are immortal corpse-demons, stalking the night in bodies fueled by stolen life as they search for the enlightenment that may yet save them. But the World of Darkness makes no journey easy: In the modern nights, the Hungry Dead must survive many threats, which come not just from humanity and the kings of hell, but also their mysterious cousins to the west-- the strange vampires called the Children of Caine.

For the first time, play an updated, rebuilt version of Kindred of the East for the 20th Anniversary Storyteller System. This title includes:
  • A completely new system for playing and running Kindred of the East, built around the Storyteller System as detailed in Vampire: the Masquerade 20th Anniversary Edition
  • New systems for Dharma, Chi, and Soul Imbalance
  • New and improved Backgrounds, Demon Arts, Godbody Arts, and Soul Arts
  • Sample NPCs and rules for playing as Dhampyrs, the children of the Hungry Dead
  • Includes a printer-friendly character sheet for immediate play

Note: This book requires the use of Vampire: the Masquerade 20th Anniversary Edition for systems and Kindred of the East/Kindred of the East Companion for essential setting information. This book is also designed as a rules companion to Analects of the Damned, a free setting book available on the Storyteller's Vault.

The text and graphics in the pdf are almost unreadably washed out _when reading it through a pdf reader (foxit reader)_ however it is perfectly legible when read through firefox.
It's bizarre!

Hi Tim-- Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I compared Acrobat, Foxit and Chrome and they look the same on my device, so I'm not sure what it could be. I'm glad at least that you can see it; I'll keep an eye out and update the document if there's something I can fix.

An excellent updating of KotE to the present day. Definitely recommended for fans of the old line.

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.
