Vampire The Masquerade 1st Edition


A Storytelling game of personal horror.

"No one holds command over me. No man. No God. No Prince. What is a claim of age for ones who are immortal? What is a claim of power for ones who defy death? Call your damnable hunt. We shall see who I drag screaming to Hell with me."

- Gunter Dorn, Dasa Ungeheuer Darin

Almost 100% of White Wolf material are on pod, why this one isn't? Original copies are hard to finds and normally they are used. With a pod we could had a better option and sure lot of people are interested.

Agreed. Seems like a another avenue of funds for people wanting to read up of how VtM has evolved over the years.

WotC does the same thing. Half of their stuff is not POD even though they would make money on it.

I'll chime in for wanting this in POD as well. Original copies sell between 75 to 150 bucks a pop. How about giving those of us who want to run the original edition an affordable alternative.

Darn, kinda sad this isn't POD like some of the other 1e WoD lines. It'd be great to have a hard copy to read up on.

I noticed some rule differences between the initial and later reprint. There were 3 print runs. Is the 3rd one also different? I feel like you need both print runs to stitch together into a playable whole. There seem to be some random omissions, as a result of editing.

It appears that this file has been updated recently, and looks much cleaner. Is it about to be made POD?

It really should be.

I only have one original copy of this book and I'm not going to risk its safety to run a first edition game. I refuse to allow pdf use at the table because electronics distract everyone and detract from the gaming experience. Please, the print quality of 1st kinda sucked anyway even if this is a bad scan of one ya'll had in the back of the warehouse somewhere make a print on demand version so I can buy a few. I wanna run 1st ed again.

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.
