    LORE: "It has been one hundred years since the Vampire Lord was banished, but since then the humble people of Talabhiem Kingdom have endured an unholy curse afflicting their lands, for the Vampire was not truely defeated...

    His spirit remains, slowly drawing strength and corrupting the land. The peasant folk tell of strange creatures lurking within the shadows of the forests and dark voices wisper through the wind. While crops fail and disease spreads, it is the King of Talabhiem whom has suffured the greatest tragedy, all the heirs to his kingship have mysteriously disapeared and with every passing day, the king grows more weary and older. He has lost all hope of continueing his legacy but his greatest fear is about to come into being:

    THE PROPHECY: Before the Vampire Lord was slain, he vowed to one day return and destroy the family line of King Alec. With the kings children missing, all the Vampire lord needs to do is kill is the king himself to fulfil the Prohecy. If he suceeds in whiping out the dynasty within 3 days he will regain his full strength and claim lordship over Talabhiem. If he fails to kill the king then his body will crumble and his spirit banished to the underworld for eternity.


    But in the Darkest hour there is still hope, for 6 champions have stepped farward, offering their help to the beligured King of Talabhiem.



    BASIC GAMEPLAY INFO:

    This is a unique PvP map with support from AI factions where players can either chose to play as the Vampire Hunters or the Vampire Lord himself.

    It combines influences from maps like Vampirism, Tomb of Jabocoriah and Dragon Hunters. There is also a strategy element as players have the option of creating squads or armies by hiring our local mercenries from the city of Talabhiem.

    The basic aim of Vampire lord is to kill the King of Talabhiem within 3 days or he will die. The aim of the Vampire hunters is to protect the King for 3 days or slay the Vampire lord himself.

    If a Vampire hunter dies to a creep then he can be resurected by an ally, however, if a hunter is killed by a Vampire he will return as an undead Vampire and serve darkness. Another way for the Vampire Lord to win is to kill all 6 defenders, but he only has 3 days so he must work quickly.

    The Vampire hunters will have to work as a team, defending the King and the local villagers from evil. There are 3 villages around the map and of course the city of Talabhiem itself which houses the King. The cities defenses are formidable, but if the Vampire Lord grows strong enough he will have the power to bring it down and slay the King.

    The hunters have a number of weapons at their disosal, the greatest asset being the people of Talabhiem themselves, many can be hired as merc to fight along side your hero. In this sense the game also has a RTS element to it.

    The Vampire Lord has the power to create vast armies of undead, but not in the normal sense, all his minions must be infected and raised as Vampires or zombies summoned from the corpses of the fallen. He can then mutate and evolve his minions into more powerful creatures and servants of Darkness with a range of different bonuses and abilities.

    CREATORS NOTE: This is a very old project of mine I finally decided to finish, I've been working on it while other LTA developers had the LTA map so it won't have interfered with development of that map! RotV is almost finished now so I'm hoping to do a private beta test in afew weeks. Some of you may notice this is a continuation and sequel to my "Zombie Rising" map.

    GAMEPLAY TIPS AND ADVICE:
    Vampire Hunters:
    - Stick together and always work as a team, the Vampire will be able to overpower you alone but he can not match the strength of you all combined.
    - Use your powers to unlock special mysteries around areas of power around the map.
    - Buy mercenries from the local village bastions, upgrade and expand your unit squad via black smiths.
    - Entering the Vampires lair and destroying his base there will seveerly weaken him, but be wary for the underworld holds hidden powers and evil...
    - Remember the undead are stronger at night but weaker by day.


    Vampire Lord:
    - Your aim besides killing the King should also be to kill the Vampire hunters, any which fall to your bite will be reborn as Vampire allies and serve you!
    - Use the special global powers found in your underworld altar of power. Try and keep this protected.
    - If the Vampire hunters enter your castle remember to use your traps to your advantage.
    - Build your vampire and zombie army by corrupting and killing the local villagers and soldiers of Talbhiem. They will serve you either as a vampire or as a mindless Zombie. These can then be evolved into minions of great power.
    - The main city of Talabhiem is very strong, attack and destroy the outer villages first before going for the king directly.
    - Remember you only have 3 days, keep an eye on the timer, you can not afford to wait around.

    I'm quite impressed and hyped for that game.
    As said before: Survival Maps like Zombie Rising are imo your strength.

    This map recylces alot of assets from my canceled Skyrim Project from years ago so you may notice some screenshots are very similiar, the Vampires snowy castle was actually Windhelm in my Skyrim map. Now these doodads won't go to waste and will finally see the light of day!

    Nope there is no base building, only destroying :-)
    But you can comand armies. Humans can hire mercenries from the villages but they wont be able to hire a huge amount, just small squads. However the Vampires will be able to gain huge undead armies by infecting and raising the poor villagers as zombies and Vampires.
