    Could you reformulate that? I really don't know what you're trying to ask :$.

    That's a lot to unpack. Are you looking to give the VC's the Elector Count mechanic? Looking for a Campaign Pack with an alternate map of the VCs? Something else?

    Clarification?

    Vlad von Carstein is the new where recognized by the empire elector count of Sylvania with some units included and not included of both the vampire counts and the Empire. like he became a elector Count in the end times

    Is it the end times?

    No and that's good. Vampires shouldn't join the empire.

    Coyping the mechanic again would also lead to exactly the same problem we had before with one faction getting the better deal simply because CA learned from the first time around.

    Would be an interesting mechanic. But should only be available for Mannfred and Vlad. As they are the only 2 VC that had Imperial Ambitions.

    Would make the von Carstein bloodline a bit more interesting with some unique objectives. I mean the Bloodline already has access to State Troops.

    A nice add-on would be to give both Vlad and Mannfred the ability to become Emperor and create the Vampiric Empire.

    Being able to give your Vampire Lords Elector Count seats and everything.

    And of course getting Undead Versions of all the Region Specific RoRs. Would be interesting.

    While Vlad becoming an elector count was one of the few really interesting (and most wasted) plot points in the End Times...

    It doesn't make sense in TWW's AU. Vlad was made an elector for the massive amount of stuff he did for the Empire during the End Times. In this AU, he's back to his old warmongering ways, violating Imperial graves and leading hordes of undead on a murderous rampage through Imperial lands.

    No way is Vlad becoming an elector count now. The only thing Karl Franz would give him is a hammer to the face.

    Vlad's ambitions could never be satisfied with the mere position of Elector Count.

    He's after the big chair.

    I love the idea of the Vampire Counts being given the elector count mechanic, once they have taken over the Empire.

    Nothing really changes once Vlad fulfills his ambition and takes Altdorf, which is a shame.

    This is the old mechanic sharing rabbit hole again. Should Bretonnia have something like the Elector Counts? Should High Elves? Should Vampire Counts have "undercities" in the form of covens? Should Chaos have them? Etc.


    I'm not saying some mechanics shouldn't be shared (the skaven undercities developed from the vampirate coves is a great example of actually improving it), but there needs to be a limit, or else it gets too genericized.

    Currently, the VCs have the Bloodlines, which frankly is a great unique mechanic and enough.

    Unless you play Kemmler. Or a very sneaky Von Carstein game.

    IF the VC were to get this elector count mechanic (and I don't think they should), then it should be limited to the Sylvanians, and not given to Kemmler or any other lords that might come down the road.
