Hunter: The Vigil

Selected Option:

A Candle in the Darkness

The scales have fallen from your eyes.

A fire is lit: is it a lamp perched over the inscription upon an ancient blade? Or a roaring conflagration consuming the house in which the howling fiends wait?

Things will never be the same after this. You’ve set forth on a damning path.

Carry the Vigil.

Fight back the shadows.

Hunter: The Vigil includes:

  • A rulebook for playing hunters, those humans who have seen the truth of the World of Darkness and are spurred to action.
  • A many-faced Vigil for many types of hunter: characters might choose a path of violence, of investigation, or even of rehabilitation. Decipher mysteries and confront the horrors.
  • Provides new player types and antagonists for crossover- intensive chronicles as well as those chronicles focused only on hunters.

For use with the World of Darkness Rulebook.

I was wondering why they removed the standard color hardcover option.

So, first off, this is a great book, up there with any of the "new" World of Darkness books.

However, I purchased this way back in 2016 and although I perused it, it wasn't until recently that I finally had a chance to run a game with it. And suddenly I noted some errors. On pages 119, 123, 139, and 147 there are background elements -- typically white or otherwise light colored -- which printed "in front" of the text, leaving blank spots. I'm familiar enough with printing, especially from PDF, to strongly suspect these are errors in the PDF or created in the process of printing from the PDF and aren't seen when browsing the PDF as normal. A few other pages throughout have smaller errors that can be very easy to miss until you read through an entire passage and notice a letter or two are blocked out by some "background" graphic.

This is mostly just a heads up for future prints -- hopefully those who do the printing will see this and check for the errors, and...See more

I recently ordered/downloaded the HtV PDF and I'm enjoying it.

I'm curious if the latest version has been uploaded by DTRPG. The PDF I just downloaded (properties) indicates that it was created/updated on August 27, 2008. But the Product Information section indicates the PDF was updated on July 23, 2012. Has the July 23, 2012 version been uploaded for download?

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.
