Legends of the Undead
The first vampires remember their first nights, but do not speak of them. Others have heard tales, but know better than to believe them. The wise speak of The Book of Nod, but none have seen this fabled book of ancient lore.
These are their tales...
Their stories begin with the Chronicle of Caine and the earliest nights of the vampire. The Chronicle of Shadow reveals Caine's hidden teachings. Finally, the Chronicle of Secrets unveils the deepest mysteries of the Damned, including the coming dread of Gehenna.
The Book of Nod is a collection of mythic texts for use in the Vampire: The Masquerade Roleplaying Game.
Presented as an epic poem, the Book of Nod is an in-game resource, viewed as sacred by Noddist scholars and most vampire elders, especially of the Sabbat. Rather than a book of game mechanics, this book can be used as a prop and for lore, as it outlines the genesis of vampires with the mythology of Caine.
- Faux-leatherbound book with silver foil, gilded pages, and a blood-red ribbon
- Rich mythology of the creation of vampires, usable as an in-game prop, clues and Story motivation for players, or as Storyteller inspiration
- A perfect companion to Sabbat: The Black Hand for your 5th Edition Vampire: The Masquerade game

The Book of Nod was the first VtM book I had ever read, so I was excited to see it getting re-released. The version I currently have is relatively small and was created for the special edition of Kindred: The Embraced, so having access to a newer version is nice. The PDF is good quality, and it's great to see better quality versions of the art from the book than what I had previously. I'm not a fan of the watermark on every page, and is not something I'm used to having on my PDFs, but it's a small distraction on an otherwise great book. Looking forward to receiving the physical edition.
This book is key for my upcoming chronicle.
If you already own one of the older versions of this book, nothing has changed (except perhaps if you own one of the first runs...where art on some pages was so dark as to make the text unreadable). If you are new to the game, this is your chance to get access to the book without the scalper prices. I was hoping there would be some new material for us old-timers, or perhaps a few updates (like the clan names listed on page 53) but it is pretty much an exact copy of the original. Still, a classic is a classic.
