I purchased this title (some time ago, probably) but there seems to be no download link and it doesn't appear in my library. The title's page on the site clearly states "You Have Purchased This Title" however.

Any suggestions as to how I fix this?

I really like "Vampire: The Requiem 2nd Edition", but after having a look at the preview of this supplement book, I am not sure whether I want to buy it anymore.
My personal reason for this is the quality of the artwork. The picture on page ten is a green line drawing and the one on page 14 looks like a bad mashup, half blurred photo, half painting.. Especially the black moon looks ridiculous.
In my personal opinion it is still better to have fewer artwork, than including those with a different style or minor quality. Therefore using just one good artist, or at least only people with a similar technique, style and color palette for one product line would be better.

Has Onyx Path Publishing ever created a variation of this for other World of Darkness books? I'd be very interested in a version of this that focuses on Werewolves, and a separate one that focuses on Magi (Mages?).

Any help would be appreciated.

Yes, each line has a counterpart in the Chronicles of Darkness. Werewolf: the Forsaken, Mage: The Awakening, Mummy: The Curse, Hunter: The Vigil, Changeling: The Lost, Demon: The Descent, and a few new ones such as Promethean: The Created and Geist: The Sin Eaters.

Some of the options here make me shiver. There is some delicious writing here, on a par with The Blood and Mythologies for 1st Edition Requiem.

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.
