Blood-Dimmed Tides is a sourcebook for the World of Darkness that covers what lurks beneath the oceans and seas.


From the White Wolf Catalog:

Caught Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea
Nobody said the ocean was a safe place — just ask the crew of the Lusitania. What made you think the oceans of the World of Darkness were any safer? There are...things down there, things that slide effortlessly through the arctic chill and lightless void. Creatures that wait quietly for their time, the time of flood — the time of Dagon.
You Might Be Safer With the Devil
It's time to take a look a what's going on in the rest of the World of Darkness — you know, the other seven-tenths? The places you haven't explored yet? That changes now. World of Darkness: Blood-Dimmed Tides explores the seas of the World of Darkness, and lays bare the secrets of their denizens, whether the wraith-crewed ghost ships or the fae of the deep. Whether you you're looking to take your landlubber characters to sea or try out a coastal or deepwater chronicle for a change of pace, this is the book for you.
World of Darkness: Blood-dimmed Tides contains:
  • Rules for taking characters under the seas, from underwater combat to variant Disciplines
  • A bestiary of underwater antagonists including details on the sinister Chulorviah, an alien threat peculiar to the deep trenches of the undersea
  • Two new changeling kiths – the merfolk and merrow – setting information, and more
