Vampire Lord

The Vampire Lord takes to melee with power and growing madness, both on foot and atop monstrous, powerful mounts.

As a Vampire ages, his powers increase. He becomes physically stronger and faster, until he is able to tear a man in half an move as fast as the wind. He is able to call upon a host of powers, the nature of which vary from Vampire to Vampire. Some can call forth creatures such as wolves and bats to assail the armies of the living, and sometimes they can even learn how to change into these forms. Others are able to mesmerise weak-willed mortals with barely a glance. If the Vampire has a strong affinity for magic, then his necromantic abilities expand both naturally and through study. Despite these awe-inspiring powers, however, there is a terrible price to pay. As the decades become centuries, many Vampires lose their minds, sliding inexorably into madness.

Abilities

Vampire Lord
  • There are those who wish nothing more than to be at the heart of battle, seeking foes to vanquish.
  • Vampires have long had a savage and unstoppable bloodlust. They will continue to slaughter until their enemies lie dead at their feet, or have been turned to Undeath.
  • Arise! Do not falter! Do not crumble! Back to life once more!
  • As the Vampires rip apart their victims they feast on the blood that spills forth – gaining in strength and lost stamina.
  • The dead do not rest easily in the Old World. Those summoned by Vampires and Necromancers no longer have mortal concerns - they serve only their master's will.
  • The Dark Magic binding has failed. Both flesh and necromantic energy slough off the subjects leaving naught but dust.

Attributes

  • Causes Fear
    This unit frightens all enemy units, reducing their [[img:icon_morale]][[/img]]leadership when nearby. It is also immune to fear. Fear penalties do not stack.
  • Encourage
    This unit provides a [[img:icon_morale]][[/img]]leadership bonus to nearby allies. Units within range of both the [[img:icon_general]][[/img]]Lord's aura and an encouraging unit will receive the larger of the two bonuses.
  • Undead
    The unit is Undead (does not rout, immune to terror, becomes unstable when [[img:icon_morale]][[/img]]{{tr:morale}} is low). It will suffer from [[img:icon_attrition]][[/img]]attrition when moving through territory not owned by the Undead.
