Guide to the Camarilla

The quality of the scan could have been much better. The alignment of the pages is acceptable, but shows a marked disinterest in presentation, which, in the last pages of the book becomes even more profound. Compared to other products that have been scanned in, this book is disappointing from a professional standpoint. Also, the scan-lines in the images make them seem somewhat haphazardly included.

The content of the book is well recorded, nonetheless. All the text is well intact and can be read at high magnification without blurring. The misalignment of the text can be viewed as a very old-fashioned way of presenting manuscripts, which is still used by RPG developers today. The passages are clear and no information is missing from the volume. It is all included and some of the more hand drawn art is actually well preserved and as impressive as the original hard cover ones.

Since the majority of PDF's of VTM on this sight are high quality Original Electronic documents, I feel that an exception can be made in the case of Guide to the Camarilla. It could have been one too, but the original one was damaged and White Wolf had to compensate by scanning in a copy of the actual book. They could have done a better job, but the one they did was satisfactory. I only own the scanned image PDF file, but I do imagine that a print copy of it, thanks in part to the larger paper used, would look alright. It wouldn't be as perfectly aligned as a properly designed book, but it would still be clear and appeal to both the mind and the eye.

Don't let the average quality of the file get you down. Modern printing methods and enough concern to make the book a digital product was put into this book. The content does outweigh the faults.

Do not get me wrong, Guide to the Camarilla is one of the best VtM titles, ever. Camarilla's "politics as usual" is well explored and explained, meaning you get the reasons why Kindred are a-holes. In that, it more than hits the spot.

The poor scanning, however, made me give it only two stars. Guide to the Camarilla deserves higher quality scanning, and its file should be updated.

The quality of the scan is well below average; I bought different PDFs from rpgnow.com in the past and was never disappointed by the quality of the images or texts in the books - until now.

The content per se is okay (I would give 4 points) and informative.
