SummaryEdit

From the White Wolf catalog:

The End Is Nigh
Once, hunters were normal people who lived regular lives. That was before. Now that the Messengers have touched us, the imbued recognize the real horrific world ruled by monsters. But who are the Messengers, where did monsters come from and why were we, once blind people, chosen to inherit the Earth?
The answers lie in the prophecies of a visionary.

Fyodor's visionsEdit

Fyodor, the Visionary author, relays and analyses visions sent to him by the Messengers, constructing from them various theories of the origin of hunters and monsters, and also prophecies of the coming end of the world.

Fyodor's storyEdit

Main article: Fyodor

Fyodor also details throughout the book relevant stories from his life, including his Imbuing, various encounters with the supernatural and other hunters, and in particular his conversations with Emma, a mage he befriends and eventually betrays.

LayoutEdit

Apocrypha was published as a facsimile of Fyodor's handwritten notes, and as such includes diagrams, illustrations and Hunter glyphs.

The fictional volume is published through Anchorite Press by Violin99, who also provides a foreword and commentary. The ISBN, credits and other usual elements of a White Wolf book are hidden at the back or inside the cover leaf to preserve the illusion.

Background InformationEdit

  • The logo for Anchorite Press is probably derived from the hunter symbol for "Hunter", though it also resembles the symbol for "Extremist".
  • Fyodor prophesies five signs that will herald the end of the world; some match up with the signs that come to pass in the lead up to the Time of Judgment, but not all.

Memorable QuotesEdit

"This is without doubt the single most important document in the world, which is why I have been selected to bring it to you. I do so with reservations, but the good that it will do by arming the few who matter is far more important than the havoc that will be caused by fools." - Violin99, from his introduction

"I would like to start at the beginning, but I may have to end with it, instead. That has been my quest, you see - to find where it began." - from the first section

CharactersEdit

Fyodor 
A ruthlessly pragmatic Visionary hunter whose quest for answers led him to write the Apocrypha.
Violin99 
The Hermit who published and annotated Fyodor's manuscript.
