WHY DID I WRITE THIS ARTICLE?: Hi!.. I felt that I need to write this article. Because "Vampire Revenge" mod (by Gallas) is the ancestor of my "Age of DOOM" mod. If "Vampire Revenge" mod didn't exist my "Age of DOOM" also wouldn't exist. So it is a very important mod for the history of my "Age of DOOM" mod. Because I used this mod's resources as a base to make my "Age of DOOM" mod. But also I updated (changed) the "Vampire Revenge" mod with many changings to make it suitable for my "Age of DOOM" mod.

It is an interesting multiplayer RTS mod for The Conquerors (UserPatch v1.5). So I need to inform readers about this mod. (Also if you want to get more detailed infomation about its historical role for my "Age of DOOM" mod you can click HERE...)

SOURCE: I used the pictures and texts very often from "Vampire Revenge" mod's Voobly page as the main source while writing this article...

About the mod

  1. "Vampire Revenge" mod is a custom "Random Map" game from "Standard Game" section or "Multiplayer" section. Also there is the Vampire_Ai for the Vampire computer players.
  2. Realm of Dracula and Realm of Lilith are the two hunter (Vampire) civilizations.
  3. Human players can pick any other civs or random (if both vampire civs are used).

+ Every player will start at the center of the map with two villagers (Vampires with two Servant). Lava rivers, dead forests, cliffs and haunted lands (with Tormented Souls) are everywhere. Many other gaia objects for vampires can be found like, Skeletons, Impaled villagers and Blood fountains. Humans should try to find a safe zone by cliffs or other terrains (forest may won't be a good idea), while Vampire have to find Humans.

How to play as Human

+ At start you will begin with two (separated) villager at the middle of the map. Try to go to a destination as fast as you can!

+ Avoid haunted lands! Tormented Souls are there and they can be a problem in big number!
(Unless you have an Aztecs team member...)

+ Build Lumber Camp, Mill and Mining Camp. These buildings are generating your resource by time. The more you have, more resource you get, but each building increase the cost of the next one. This price is reduced ofc when the building is destroyed.

+ You should build some early defense and Town Center to age up. Keep in mind, you are not limited to two villager!

+ Most of the gaia objects what you will find are used by the Vampires. Try to stay hidden as long as you can, or you will be under unwanted undead pressure. Every civilization has it's own strength and weakness. Make sure you are familiar with them!

+ From Feudal Age you can build better walls and towers. Don't forget, the Lumber Camp/Mill/Mining Camp are an unlimited source for your resources! You can build as much as you want... If you can afford it.

+ From Castle Age you can build Monastery. This building not just generate gold, but have important spells. These spells are working like technologies, but you can queue them and unlimited amount of use.

+ The Tower of Flies, while have short range, it has great attack bonus vs Vampires. It should be always part of your defense.

hum8.png


+ You can play both defense-mode by towers, and long-range units...

... and offensive by your army. Keep in mind, the Monastery technologies are applies for all of your units and every Vampire, Undead and Demon has it's own weakness and strength!

+ At Imperial Age you can build The Accursed Tower and Wonder, also one time your civ-specific unique Hero. Wonder also generates gold, and in Standard Victory mode it can give you the option to win by it.

In short: Play kinda like you do with Jurassic. Find a good spot, build your Lumber Camp/Mill/Mining Camp and create your defense. Make army or towers, upgrade and extend your base. If the pressure is too big, try to work in team, relocate, but most important: one villager can be enough to change the fight!

How to play as Vampire

+ You will start with two (separated) Servant. While they have a lot of health and armor, they are slow and small Line of Sight.

+ They have only one purpose: You can build 3 buildings with them, but each building can be built only ONCE! Try to make a good decision where you place them, there is no return once you are finished them.

+ Once you are finished with all buildings, your Servants will sacrifice themselves. Your buildings are: Vampire Citadel, Graveyard and Hell Pit. All building have huge health and armor, as they are not supposed to be able to destroyed.

+ Vampire Citadel: Main building where you can summon your Vampire King (Dracula or Lilith), age up, create your Necromancer, some lesser vampires and research few, but important technologies.

vamp4.png


+ Your Vampire King is a slow, but really strong unit with really fast health-regeneration. You can summon him only ONCE, but if he dies he not die fully. He will resurrect with a huge explosion and fight again! But every death will reduce your buildings hp by 3333. This means your 3rd death will means you will lose all your building and at 4th death you lost the game.

+ Necromancer (Unholy Monk) is important by being able to pick up Soul fragments. Soul fragments are like relics and can be placed into your Vampire Citadel to generate gold. Gold will be used to reanimate Undead and upgrades/researchers.

+ Graveyard: Reanimate your undead, trade with the other Vampire by your Head Merchant (trade cart like unit), research technologies, and more important, (from Feudal Age) it have a second page and you can use your Unholy spells to make your army stronger.

vamp7.png


+ Hell Pit: You can summon Demons from here. Every Demon cost food and each have own strength and weakness. Make sure you read the tool-tips or the tech-tree to be familiar with them!

vamp8.png


+ You can collect food by corpses, graves, Blood fountains around all over the map. Every object have random amount of food at the begin of the game, but it's decaying by time. Only exception is the Blood fountain, which is a capture-able object, which generate small amount of food to the owner by time.

+ There is one more source for food: kills. Every killed Human is a gather-able corpse for all Vampire, Undead and Demon!

vamp10.png


In short: Make your 3 buildings, start summon your Vampire King, then make Necromancers to pick up Soul fragments and place them into your Citadel to generate gold. Locate graves, corpses and other food sources to summon Demons. Find your preys and hunt them down! If they are too strong, try not to waste your units, but upgrade them in your buildings to return as even more powerful!
