SummaryEdit

From the White Wolf catalog:

When Fiends and Warlocks Go To War
Good evening, childer. Welcome to our old and blood-drenched soil. We have known the tread of the Hun, the Roman, the Magyar, yet we stand defiant, as we always have. Now, after sunset, cries of war and horror pierce the night. As the old ways crumble and Usurpers recieve their bloody baptism, limitless power awaits those clever and brutal enough to take it. But beware: The Old Country is a harsh mistress, and those who fail greet the dawn on impaling stakes. So come, my friends. Enter freely, and of your own will. After all...you may never leave.

Transylvania by Night is a source book depicting the classic "vampire country" of Eastern Europe, as it is in the Dark Medieval world. One part history, one part Hammer Horror, this book will delight Vampire aficionados and genre fans alike.

Chapter One: IntroductionEdit

Why the book is written, and references to help with atmosphere of classic horror.

Chapter Two: A Land Bedecked in DarknessEdit

The histories of Bohemia, Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria, Lithuania, and Kievan Rus, by way of vampiric influence.

Chapter Three: Cities and Settlements of the EastEdit

The important regions to the Cainites of Eastern Europe, with the focus on Prague, Kraków, Buda-Pest, Transylvania, Sofia, and Kiev.

Chapter Four: The Cainites of Eastern EuropeEdit

The important vampires of each clan in Eastern Europe, grouped by both city and clan for convienence. Note that this chapter lacks the Tzimisce and the Tremere...

Chapter Five: The Children of the NightEdit

...because they hold such influence in the area they get the next two chapters. This chapter belongs to the Tzimisce, and how the Voivodes rule over Transylvania, bringing the terrifying old stories to life.

Chapter Six: Born of Magick: The TremereEdit

Not so welcome are the former mages turned kindred, who have angered many Cainites and made absolute enemies of the Tzimisce and the Salubri.

Chapter Seven: StorytellingEdit

Themes, moods, and ideas for running Transylvanian chronicles.

Chapter Eight: Denizens of DarknessEdit

Other supernaturals of influence in Eastern Europe, most notably the Shadow Lords and the rusalka.

Appendix: Slaves of the Voivodes and Other MiscellanyEdit

More information on the Revenant families of the Tzimisce, and on the servants of the demon Kupala.

Background InformationEdit

A note in the introduction points out there are some historical inaccuracies in the book for the sake of drama, most notably the early formation of Budapest.

According to an interview with Brom in InQuest Gamer, the original sketches for the cover art featured a cross; it was changed to an abstract "pagan-type" symbol to prevent controversy.
