The Sixth Age is Here
In the jungles of Malaysia, in the cluttered streets of India, in the mystic ruins of China, they hunt. The Kuie-jin claim an orderly society of tradition and history, but they turn their faces from the strangers within their own lands. The Shadowy subcultures of the unliving play their parts, too, and their secret powers and beliefs rival the wisdom of the ancestors.
And It Will Shake the Pillars of Heaven
The Kindred of the East Companion journeys into the lairs of the mandarins and the temples of their enemies, exploring the underground beliefs and bizarre powers that even the Kuei-jin fear. Here are the lost legacies of the arhats, the writings that defy Xue, and the creatures just beyond the shroud of Asia's grand and corrupt courts.
The Kindred of the East Companion includes:
- Heretical Dharmas, unusual Asian undead, and hidden Disciplines.
- History of the courts and development of Kuei-jin society.
- Detailed information about religions and philosophies and how they interact with the vampires of Asia.
