Summary

From the White Wolf catalog:

Dead Things Walk the Earth...
 
Your neighbourhood isn't the only place crawling with zombies, bloodsuckers and ghosts. They're all over the world! Fortunately, so are hunters. We fight monsters everywhere, but unless hunters can unite, our weapons, knowledge and tools will be lost with each of us. United we stand, divided we fall.
They Better Run
The Hunter Survival Guide is the source on stalking monsters and living to tell the tale. This book updates hunters on their fellows' activities worldwide. It spreads the word about the most dangerous game across the globe, and it offers tips on how to fight and defeat the enemy. Not only is the Survival Guide full of story ideas for any chronicle, it puts hunters on the alert for monsters still at large, perhaps even in your own hometown.

Memorable Quotes

"Those of you who do not make the effort to memorize these instructions, compiled out of my own loving kindness, have set yourselves apart from my mercy and my aid, and I leave you to your own inept devices. Read this document out loud until you have it word-perfect. Sleep with a copy of it under your pillow. Eat it. Breathe it." - God45's introduction to the survival guide.
