Theophanic Stratagem

Theophanic Stratagem


Terror grips the Midwest

A wholly unnatural cycle of fear matures every Spring. Fingers point in all directions while scared residents accuse neighbors and imply hidden conspirators of plots to subvert their quiet way of life.

Summer heat boils away patience and civility during the height of political campaigns and accusations of corruption. Before autumn harvests, tourists and agitators rekindle undying controversy about who or what keeps creating crop circles across the state. Frigid and lonely winters prey upon everyone that ventures out into the darkness alone; most return from the cold different…incomplete. When the ice and snow melt away, the return of Spring revitalizes dormant suspicions and spiteful alienation.

Secret conspiracies grip Kansas and the Midwest farmland in a destructive rhythm that uses the land’s rebirth as the catalyst to continue the sublimation of the community’s spirit. Alien invaders from outside the world pursue enigmatic agendas, but the real danger lies in people ripping their own societies apart just to find the truth.

The Theophanic Stratagem includes a ring of antagonists perpetuating one of history’s greatest Lies. These foes may be used for any Chronicles of Darkness game and may be tailored for troupes of any level of experience. This supplement includes:

  • A Moros Legacy found within the Seers of the Throne,
  • an ancient Beast surrounded by an unassailable Myth, and
  • a unique strain of Prometheans born from a Primordial Lie.

This Crossover supplement is designed for 

Chronicles of Darkness

Beast: the Primordial, 

Mage: the Awakening 2nd Edition,

 and Promethean: the Created 2nd Edition

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.
