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.

I wanted to make an Alucard character to play around with. Basically every time he kills a unit he can either resurrect it as a ghoul, or gain +1/2 hp and an extra life if killed.

Sure a nice idea overall (although I tend to only include historical/mythological creatures in my project) the question is if the Age of Empires engine would support the data-editing that would be required to set your idea in action...

Do you plan on making this mod compatible with the steam version of Age of empires 2?

Possibly try uploading this to the steam workshop even?

Depends on how much effort this will cost, I am very employed these days, but I am also playing around in my head with one more update anyway... so we'll see. The option is not excluded :)

Very well made mod, Sir.
But there is one thing in the description that I have to correct:
We Romanians are not of Slavic ethnicity, like Bulgarians or the Ukrainian people. The composition of our gene-pool (for lack of a better term) and our language have been somewhat impacted by these, for sure, but we're mostly descendants of the Thracian and Dacians, as well as some Romans (and for the last 3 hundredth years Gypsys) mixed in. That's maybe why we as people are considered strange, even by Russian standards. :)

I would encourage everybody to check out the history of the real Dracula, if only for one reason: The historical Dracula was infinitely crueler, crazier and bloodthirstier than in any of the Vampire legends. :D

I am very aware of the Romanian's uniqueness, but admittedly the description could promote misunderstandings, it is not meant as Romanians being Slavic, but rather that vampire-mythology is shared among Romanians and Slavs (like the words 'vampir' and 'varcolac' are Slavic, but used by Romanians as well).

I had forgotten to give the witches of the Báthory Clan the ability to fly, so together with other peanuts, here comes another update with not much new. I expect, though, to start working on part II over a few months.
