Harker's Guide to Vampire Hunting

From MythCraft Online SRD

The shadows stretch and blacken from the north.

A sliver of pale moonlight sighs through the clouds like a knife through ribs, eliciting the keening cries of wolves and lycans. Horrors from dark planes lurk in the orifices tethering our world to theirs, waiting to disembowel any unsuspecting prey.

Markets crawl with charlatans and cutpurses prowling for easy marks. In darkened alleys, brutish thugs pillage those unfortunate enough to stumble into their grasp. Corrupt watchmen turn a blind eye, or may even be in on the racket themselves. And there is no hope of salvation from the powers that be; near and far, town and kingdom bleed in anguish under the reign of their vampire lords.

Warlords amass horrid armies of the twisted creatures from Hell. Black knights from a faraway plane lord over their dominions.

The world is hurting.

The world despairs.

Can you offer it salve?

Can you offer it hope?

Delve into Harker's Guide to Vampire Hunting to take on the darkest horrors of Norspina, Shadowcroft, and Hell itself.
