Very nice.

I agree with Ankha re the card scans; that should be improved.

I also noted at least one spelling error on first glance ("Valeren" is misspeeled as "Valaren" in the list of disciplines), which makes me think somebody should do a session of proof-reading on this file....

But that is nit-picking; in fact, I appreciate your effort - very, very nice!

Excellent work indeed!

I can provide you with high resolution scans of almost any VTES image, so feel free to send me a list of the ones you need for the rulebook.

I think it would be convenient to add the Imbued Rules Appendix.

Hi there

Second draft of the rulebook here:
www.dropbox.com/s/wb93uc4akfmbwio/VTES%20Rulebook%20141215.pdf?dl=0

I'd like to think that this is the final version, unless people notice any glaring mistakes...

The spelling of Valeren is now correct, as the main text was copied directly from the online rules everything else should be OK, I have spell-checked it several times and not noticed any other errors.
The images have been improved, the original quality was due to the low resolution settings when I created the pdf, rather than the scans themselves.
The cover has been amended, and I have added the Imbued appendix and a quick reference page. The pdf is also bookmarked and indexed so, along with the links in the text, it should be easily navigable. If anyone finds any links missing or that don't work, please let me know.

Thanks to everyone that has commented so far, and I hope it proves useful to old and new players alike!

Cheers

Wow, the new draft looks amazing! And I'm so happy to see the card images in higher resolution. I've scanned through the entire document (although I didn't read it in depth), and I have to say that I quite like it! An excellent addition, and I'm thrilled that once the VEKN site is operational again that it can host this awesome rulebook. Thanks for you hard work!

Check out my VTES blog: Gaming with BS

I also host a google doc which separates the TWDA into clans . That means I track how often clans win, which crypt groups get used, and how many people attend events. You can access all of that info here:

Hi

great work, I really like it

I find few minor issues reading it

page 3, 1.5 (crypt overview) point 3 (clans):
"See the reference pages in the center of the rules booklet for a list of the clan symbols"

you place the clan list at pages 18 and 19, no more in center

page 5, top left:
"A drop of blood with a number on the left side of ..."

there are no references to old cards blood/pool symbols (white and black drop). Maybe could be usefull to add them

page 6: Govern the unaligned card

miss the red 6 on card text

page 7: 8: powers

you place a power card here and also in the imbued section but there is no conviction card here
in my opinion you could remove power description here and add a note who point to imbued section for other type of cards

page 7: 1.6.4. Event Cards

there is 1.6.4 intead of 9 to indicate event cards
also no number on the event card

page 10: 6.1.7. Political Action (+1 stealth)
.... A minion cannot perform more than one political action each turn."

as stated above in the same paragraph only vampires can play a political card so I suggest to replace "minion" with "vampire"

page 19, Wording Templates.
on 4th line of “During X, do Y” start a new template, “Cancel a card” without a new line and a bold

page 20, top left, 4th row
a new template "“Tap X to do Y”:" start with no new line and bold
also on line 10 start “Search”

ciao
