This mod pack uses Agamemnon's Skeleton mod, dark_blade's bats mod and ROR_Sir_Williams Dragon mod. Detailed credits are provided.

What if vampires had empires? This is the idea that started it all. Since then I have been mixing modern Horror Cliché with traditional Slavic mythology and hints towards the dark chapters of Romanian history. The result is something like an Eastern European Age of Mythology. With a bit of black humour...

Warning: (This I should have done earlier) the depiction of violence in Age of Vampires borders on cynical and exceeds that in the original game. If you feel offended by the depiction of humiliated human beings, even only in a game, do not download. I do not favor any kind of violence in real life, the brutality depicted here is however an accurate match of the traditional vampire-mythology.

-new unit:

A ranged, axe-throwing vampiric knight replaces the cavalry

archer for the Bathory Clan. Slightly stronger than a regular mounted

archer and causing damage in a radius, but unfortunately, due to some

incomprehensive bug does not damage buildings.

-new building:

The Transsylvanian peasants have an own unique wonder

now. A hide-out/fortress that was originally intended to shelter

people and shoot arrows, unfortunately that didn't work, because this

piece of data-edit crashes the game, but still nice to look at.

-new graphics:

The forest-spirit, Leshy, which torments your villagers

comes with a new look, distinguishable from the Viking Berserk. The

Witchhunter is less stiff when standing (the torch-flame moves a bit)

and in regicide the Vrkolak have a new appearance for their king (and

a different name).

-new data edits:

To keep up with the other strongly over-powered

fractions, the Transsylvanians and Vrkolak have received some new extra

bonus. The Transsylvanians can shelter villagers in churches, which

then shoot arrows and their spearmen cost 50% less. The Vrkolak pay

50% less for villagers and their female nature spirits (Samodiva) have

+1 range, as to compensate for the otherwise poor quality of ranged

units. Overall female spirits now have an attack-bonus against siege

weapons and those of the Dracul Clan (Iele) have the strongest attack.

Transforms the Age of Empires Conquerors Expansion into a Vampire Expansion. The Maya, Aztecs, Koreans, Huns and Spanish become the Dracul Clan, Vrkolak...

Any chance of this mod being compatible with steam's HD AOE2? Looks awesome.

Good News/Bad News

As I recently learned all you need, apparently to convert a mod to HD is to replace the data-files with that of the HD version

good news: I could easily convert the mod without having to redo any of the graphics and/or sounds

bad news: I would need to redo all the data-editing

I won't start experimenting with that too soon, as I am working on a normal-version update currently and have to figure out meanwhile how worthwile it is to convert to HD, I know the HD game only from screenshots... there are things I like and things I like less... I'd probably only do that step if the original game completely dies out

I've just issued one of my mini-updates. It was just that there were some merely visible errors with the Slavegirl-Harness and Witchhunter's graphics. Those of you as autistic as me, who get distracted by little pixel deviations will thank me I guess :D.

This looks interesting, are you converting the entire game to be vamp themed?

That would be tempting in a way, but if I forced myself to come up with ideas for every civ and unit in the game, just for the sake of complete conversion, inevitably some ideas would turn out sh*t. Right now at least all that comes with the expansion is changed and hence this can be viewed as a vampire-expansion to the game ;)
