Playing as Vlad von Carstein. I aim to unite Sylvania under my banner, and then lay waste to the empire and beyond! To start with, I recruit Isabella, a must have! With Isabella at my side and two of her vampiress sisters, what could go wrong?
My opening moves are to construct better defences and ways to improve dark magic. I go on the offensive straight away. I go right for Castle Drakenhof. In a costly victory, I wipe-out the Vampire Counts, and of course sit on my throne.
Now it is time to take all of Sylvania, and rebuild it to my will, and to replenish my forces before making a move on the Templehof brood.
I start research in to the Book of Arkhan and from there all the way to Dread Animator.
