Written in the margins of these documents are commentaries by Cainite scholars of varying clans who have come before Niccolo. There are also testaments of later Cainites: a description of life under the waters during God's Great Flood , the events which took place leading up to the slaying of Caine's childer and the Cursing of the Clans, laws, proverbs and prophecies, including the prophecy that the Cappadocian Clan whom Niccolo served would be betrayed by one of its own.

A final angel comes to Caine, Raphael and offers him mercy, a way to salvation called Golconda, if he but seeks it.
Guido Renis archangel Michael in the Capuchin church of Sta.

The fragment is known to contain the rituals from a pre-Hermetic Tradition of Chaldean magic. We see just want a ghoul will go through to service his master and himself, we see his identification with a clan, and indeed we see his own desires for knowledge -- all of these are something that other Vampire guides might lead you to think were impossible once enslaved by the blood. The "documents" themselves are written interestingly -- text from the "ancient sources" interspersed with a dialogue of commentaries through the ages each written in a unique script giving the sense of a real exchange of ideas and personalities.
Some intriquing play on previous "ancient texts" as well as comfirmation of some ideas I'm sure are not unique to our game. Well worth buying and using. I both like the game and I love Friedman's books which there are not a lot of. And so I was suprised and delighted to find this. I found it an interesting a worthwhile read.

Not very long for the price but quite well done. Poetic and Biblical in its storytelling. An interesting bit of fiction. Good stuff here.
The Dark Ages
The book had more cosmetic and binding damage than I expected for what I paid for it. It was still readable, but not "good" condition. No rule only plot. This book is another version of the book of Nod. Its amazing whit the comments of the Vampire who read its. If you enjoy VTM Lore and can find it, it is worth the purchase.
Format: Paperback. Here's my easy description- in content it is very similar to the book of Nod. I think of it as a beuatiful sequel, the art direction immaculate, the legends and myths, stunning.
The Erciyes Fragments - RPG Roleplaying » White Wolf - The Days of Knights
Overall, it is one of the most impressive books White Wolf had yet released, full of hints, subterfuge and pondering the nature and lineage of the damned. It is well written, and interesting enough on its own without the context of the game that spawned it, Vampire: The Masquerade.
As far as brilliant tomes go, I have no complaints, only adulation for the hard work that went into it. Viva unlife! I apologize, dear reader, it is a penchant of mine to become carried away.
