Corebook is the first book of the Angel Roleplaying Game series. It was originally published on July 29, 2003 by Eden Studios.


Bright eyes, beautiful people, and broken promises fill the fabulous parties and elegant conference rooms. Loneliness, despair, and hunger haunt the city streets and tenement apartments. In Los Angeles, the facade makes the heartache all the more bitter.

Worse still, the shadows hide more than human misery. Vampires stalk alleys and boardrooms; demons linger over murders and plan conquest; evil lawyers cover tracks, set up schemes, and bring expensive brainpower to the diabolical. Over it all, the end of existence looms.

How can one person stand up for the helpless while warding off the apocalypse?

Angel: It's all the same thing. You fight the good fight. Whichever way you can —1.9 "Hero"

You heard the man. Time to join the struggle!
