I think both mortals and vampire halve superficial damage in V5? Like by default
The difference is that being shot by a gun or stabbed would be aggravated damage for a human and superficial for a vampire

I really, really love this. I always liked the Kuei-Jin, even from what little I knew, and wanted to see them playable again. I suppose I have two questions.
One: Any plans on adding in enemies based on the Kuei-Jin character sheet?
Two: Could I use stuff from this to make Kuei-Jin NPC's, be they as enemies or just characters?
Regardless I hope to see more stuff like this. Its amazing, thanks for this!

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide a PoD service due to Storytellers policy! I hope it changes in the future so we can do that!

Hey! This is such a nice work! Can I work in a translation to Brazilian Portuguese for it?

Wow, very good work. I'm impressed by your new vision on KJ, the layout, art, it's professional level design. However:
Where's the lore on the Yama Kings and the 9 Hells? There's not enough story elements. I mean, not copying the original game, but more on your world building vision, and how to adapt to different cultures. Also more Storyteller advice on how to write chronicles with The Hungry Ghosts will be great.
Can you add bookmarks, an interactive character sheet also please?
Can you suppress the watermark please, so we can print it on Lulu or other good printer for personal use?

Thank you very much! We’re very happy that you enjoyed the work and hopefully run well in your games!

1) We plan in the future to expand much more on the lore of setting through our vision including what you have suggested. Much of the work currently presented is to allow people to develop their own ideas before we put our own ideas forward.
2)Unlikely we will add bookmarks but we will be contacting some people who know how to do interactive character sheets!
3)We don’t quite understand the watermarks. From our own testing, the pdf doesnt have watermarks to stop people printing?

1) I can't wait! :)
3) "watermark" was not the right word, sorry :( it's a "protected PDF".
4) Do you plan to add an introductory adventure or even a chronicle in your new version? It can be very helpful.

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.
