Description

Five hundred years ago Otto Van Helsing embarked on a secret war against the fiends of the netherworld. Vampires, werewolves, demons, dragons...he fought them all and succeeded in banishing them back from whence they came. However, he predicted that the creatures would return, around the turn of the millennium, and before he died he left a manual for those that would fight in the future. Recently found behind the crumbling walls of an ancient German castle, this manuscript features all the demon hunter needs to know to wage a successful war against the creatures of doom. A skilled artist, swordsman, and magician of considerable powers, along with the main manuscript Van Helsing left detailed pictures, spell books, and other useful notes. All of these have been included in this, the first printing of his amazing "Demon Hunter's Handbook". The reader will learn the details of Van Helsing's incredible life plus all the skills that they will need in banishing evil from the world. Weapons and Equipment lists will detail what weaponry is useful against different types of Hell-fiend, for example everyone knows that vampires don't like pointed sticks, but did you know that a banshee can be vanquished with arrows made from yew? After a section on training, a map of the world showing which parts different demons prefer to infest, and tips on strategy, the book details each creature that the hunter is like-ly to come up against, showing its nature, powers, weak points, and ways in which it may be overcome.show more
