Awesome book for one of my favourite clans! Small question though, in regards to the diabolic touch stone. What happens if your touch stone dies of old age? Is the character still immolated? Or do they get to pick a new one?

Diabolic Touchstone is meant to be quite a dire flaw as you're gaining an equal number of positive Merits for taking it, so regardless of how your Touchstone dies, it's meant to kill you. Thematically a Baali with this Dark Bargain would be pushed to ever-greater acts of questionable ethics to ensure their Touchstone's survival, from Ghouling them to more narrative attempts, such as bargaining to keep them safe or alive.

If you enjoyed the book, please leave a Rating, we appreciate it greatly. We also have a free version of our most recent release: Clanbook Gangrel, and we're planning on releasing an updated version of this book near the end of the year.

Ahhh I see, that makes total sense. I shall be leaving 5 stars. Also, I've already grabbed the Grangrel book and plan to keep up with future releases. Keep up the good work!

I just read this. I don’t see any SPC in the file. Did I miss something?

The stat blocks given in the Tools section on page 40, 41, and 42 are meant to be used for SPCs that you create for you campaign. If you were looking for something else, or expected something else, we'd like to know as this book will likely be getting an expansion and update in the future.

Hi, very nice book that takes into account the many sides of the Baali as first introduced in their own official Dark Ages Clanbook many, many years ago and some of the V20 Tal’Mahe’Ra books additions.

Of course there is some modernisation, including making Heretics a seperate thing from Moloch followers and combining the Swarm with the Nergali. Glad to see Celestials are still there albeit by a different name.

Excellent book and clearly a labour of love.

As a minor correction on page 21 Hell-Bound Heart lista three mortals as ingridients but in the mechanics it speaks of 9 mortals. Which is the correct amount? 9 seems to be that due to being mentioned twice in the mechanics but it could still be 3 if that was a later correction that was made in the ingridient list but missed on the mechanics.

Thank you for the compliments! While making the book we tried to scour what Baali lore there was in previous editions and their relation to other splats while also putting a bit of a spin on some of the themes that we thought would allow for interesting or more open-ended playstyles.

As for the error on the Hell-Bound Heart, it's meant to be 9 mortals as the procession is meant to carry a very steep cost for such character and play-altering Ceremony at a relatively early or mid-game level. Sorry for the confusion.

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.
