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.

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

A new update is going to be avaliable soon (awaits authorization)

-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
bonusses. 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.

If you do a new update Id recommend adding vampiric houses for Bathory clan and draculeans,you can also keep the graves as one of the models of a vampires civ,It seems really strange to have a bunch of randomly placed graves around buildings,and also maybe use wooden yurts for vrkolak as well?

Admittedly, I am increasingly getting friends with the idea to add another sword-wielding unit, but cannot promise.

Yes, you are right. There are some spooky units that fight hand-to-hand already, but I think what some people are disapointed with is that the unit that looks most like a classic vampire count shoots arrows. For some reason this does not fit with the image they have of vampires. Frankly, I can't relay to that, because the crossbow has been a central weapon in many recent vampire fictions, including 'Underworld' and 'Van Helsing'. I don't mean disrespect to the fans, but I also don't like to comply to everyone's particular expectation. The ideas and clichés about vampires are many and I have to make a selection anyway. If ranged vampires are a bit odd and unexpected, this is ok, because it promotes the originality.
