Tending the Flame (The Hunter: The Vigil Second Edition Companion)

Selected Option:

The point about hope is that it is something that occurs in very dark moments. It is like a flame in the darkness; it isn’t like a confidence and a promise.

— John Berger

Keeping the Vigil is a choice. Nothing stops them from going home, locking the door, putting out the light, and pretending that all is right with the world. Billions of people do just that every day.

But the hunter lights their candle anyway. Whether out of compassion, hope, curiosity, anger, or boredom, they keep it lit. Moreover, their stubborn refusal to give the night to the darkness often serves to spread that flame to others.

Tending the Flame is a companion book to Hunter: The Vigil Second Edition, expanding on what’s in the core book.

It contains:

  • Narrative and systems support to successfully hunt at Tier One, plus tips for navigating hunter society.
  • Eight Compacts, including a mix of updated first edition favorites and exciting new groups to join.
  • Eight Conspiracies, including an expanded version of Aegis Kai Doru, as well as several new hunter organizations.
  • New Tactics and Endowments.

You’ve stumbled into shadows.

You know what lurks in darkness.

There are more monsters tonight than ever before.

It’s time to fight back. 

Hunter: The Vigil Second Edition is a standalone game that can be played by new or existing players. The lore has been updated to not only reflect the uptick in monsters, but also the fact that hunting monsters is not exclusive to a location, group of people, or time period. There may be more monsters than ever before, but now there are more ways to fight them, too.

In Hunter: The Vigil, anyone can be a hunter — provided you are committed to the hunt. It is a game of personal horror and sacrifice that tests relationships and encourages teamwork within a cell, compact, or conspiracy.

Hunter: The Vigil Second Edition includes:

Hunter presents a core set of rules and three options for gameplay for new or existing players. This game includes:

  • Overview of a hunter’s world and lore, the types of hunters you can play, and three separate tiers of gameplay.
  • Six compacts and six conspiracies with Endowments for tiered play.
  • Character creation, rules to hunt, equipment, Tilts, and Conditions.
  • Monster creation and locations where to hunt the strange and unexplained.
  • The Slasher Chronicle, Storyteller advice, and more!

It's hard to tell what's intended with Operation Nebula. Do they Harvest from just anything, and it somehow works? Or are "alien power cores" an actual thing?

If I had to guess, they probably have something to do with the God-Machine.

Since commenting, I've looked at the Onyx Path fora, and it seems the answer is "just anything." This irritates me greatly; I know I have the power to make stuff up on my own (and do!) but I'm still disappointed. I don't mind Nebula being wrong; I'd just like them to be wrong about something.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
