The undead loom large in the imaginations of mortals. These shuffling horrors stumble forth from shallow graves at the beckoning of dreadful necromancers. They stir in forgotten barrows and ancient tombs. They flit through the mists of the curling fog that blanket the fallow fields and haunt dark alleys, marking scenes of old crimes and bloody murders. But amongst these vestiges of life - these rotting, twisted, tortured forms - there are those who excited us, who awaken a dark fantasy of fascination. They are the night's dark masters, the Vampires, and they are the cunning lords of wickedness and evil, preying on mortals as a wolf hunts sheep. They can be beautiful and alluring, forever frozen in their youth, or hulking and monstrous, twisted by the corruption of their tainted blood. Regardless of their form, they are a dangerous threat, masterminds of countless plots and sinister designs, and their power, their majesty, makes slaves of all who live under the pall they cast.
Night's Dark Masters lifts the shroud from the Vampires, revealing everything you could want to know about Vampires in the Old World. Inside these blood-slick pages, you'll find:
