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.

Had to upload the Silver edition again, 'cause noticed had forgotten to remove white residues from the evil horse and Bathory stable graphics... also had unnecessarily renamed the campaign... excuses for those who have to wait again. Happens every time^^ Now hands off for a while again, enjoy the new version!

seems like the recent silver edition didn't make it into the moddb downloads or it wasn't fully approved as the silver edition.
Where's the download for the latest version?

thanks in advance

To assure the file you are downloading is the Silver Edition doublecheck the size of that file. Prior to the Silver Edition Age of Vampires was ca. 29 MB now it is around 31 MB. I've noticed before on Moddb that sometimes the download button will direct you to a mirror containing an older version than the current one.

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

Ah HD versions are always so finnicky, all they do is ruin mod compatibility.
