He's one of the coolest legendary lords in the game IMO. It would be so cool if he either got moved to Castle Drakenhof (as the true lord of Sylvania) and Mannfred moved somewhere else (like Nehekara). Or, if Vlad's faction was moved to a completely different location with taking Altdorf and Drakenhof being key long-term goals.
Would also be awesome if his faction got some unique mechanics. Again, something that seperates him from Mannfred's faction because at the moment they are pretty much the same in almost every way.
What you think the chances of his faction getting said new startling location and mechanics? 29 new starting locations for the older lords is WAY higher then I imagined.
