From the Back of the Book:
Behold the many faces of mankind's darkest enemy
Twin puncture wounds mark the kiss of the nosferatu. Blood trickles with the slow crawl of despair. A shadow lingers, black against black. Chill mist clings damply to every surface, and the echo of an anguished shriek hangs in the air.
Vampires introduces 13 unique and terrifying villains of horrific proportions. Each one challenges vampire hunters to rethink the common perceptions of these foes--for these are no ordinary undead. Each creature presented in this book is a unique individual with its own history, personality, and powers.
The lords of the night that adventurers will meet include:
- Jander Sunstar, one of the oldest vampires in the Land of Mists.
- Myxitzajal, a seagoing monster with a taste for fishermen.
- Lady Adeline, an elf vampire who seeks out light rather than hiding from it.
- Lyssa von Zarovich, who covets the power of her great-uncle Strahd.
- Any many more!
These are the Children of the Night
Children of the Night: Vampires is the first book in a new series that brings to unlife the creature types treated in the best-selling Van Richten's Guides. Each volume offers biographies of distinct and monstrous villains easily added to any game; short adventures featuring each nemesis, which can stand alone or form a mini-campaign; unique ways to fight each foe; and adventure hooks for using them as recurring villains.
For all character levels.
