The Erciyes Fragments by C.S. Friedman
They’re good for the reader to look at and feel superior to the commentators, who are writing without knowledge of what the events refer to, but they aren’t useful even in a Dark Ages game because as soon as the GM includes them, any player who knows anything about Vampire is instantly going to know the subject of the prophecies.
That leaves the door open for several extra Antediluvians and their hidden Clans. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.
This wrciyes goes along with the Book of Nod. Revealed now for the first time are the prophecies of Nod and of Gehenna!
Their commentary might even have more total words than the actual text, and while some of it is juvenile or dumb, mostly it adds to the poetic styling with more down-to-earth criticism. Carl rated fragents it was amazing Jun 21, The actual fragments are very similar to The Book of Nodbut different in a few key points.

Patrick rated it really liked it Oct 27, Friedman, The Erciyes Fragments is a version of the Book of Nod that has never been seen before by mortal eyes. Yannis Karatsioris rated it really liked it Aug 06, The traditional interpretation is that Cain’s sacrifice was lacking somehow, but in The Erciyes Fragments it’s because G-d loves the sweet smell of blood and found Caine’s harvest unacceptable, and so Caine sacrifices that which is perfect, that which is unblemished, the first part of what he loves–his brother.
The early sections are written from Caine’s perspective in first person and have a heavy focus on blood, as you might expect for vampires. An expansion of The Book of Nod. The most sage of vampiric scholars provide their commentary for your enlightenment. Jedidiah rated it really liked it Jun 21, She has also been credited Celia S.

Said manuscript has been commented on by multiple scholars over the centuries, and those comments are written in the margins in a variety of hands, as is traditional for medieval and earlier manuscripts. While I found the text interesting, the notes in the margins became quite distracting.

I think White Wolf should have done more with this, especially in the Americans and Africa, rather than having the vampires there claim different originals but all obviously be bloodlines of existing Clans, but oh well.

Rich Waters rated it liked it Feb 20, Adding that to Vampire fragmenfs a great way to deepen the mythology and allow the GM to provide multiple quotations on the erciyyes topic and let players sort through what they believe. Myssi rated it really liked it Feb 19, The Erciyes Fragments is more of a supplement to The Book of Nod rather an an entirely separate book on its own, but not so much that it doesn’t have its own identity.
A fascinating perspective of the origin of the kindred, and the multiple layers of storyline is just awesome.
