The Vampire Earth Campaign Setting

From Fax Encyclopedicus

Jump to: navigation, search

Vampire Earth is a thrilling post-apocalyptic series written by the brilliant mind of E.E.Knight. In it, there are soul-drinking, vampiric entities known as Kurians. The Kurians systematically destroyed civilization using a mixture of vampire-like monsters, huge ape-men, and even the occasional zombie virus. What is left is a world divided; some serve the Kurians, hoping that they will be spared for longer, while others formed massive rebellious domains to fight them back. If memory serves, the first book (titled "Way of the Wolf") comes in about 20 years after the apocalypse. Where the protagonist comes from, the servants of the Kurians are known as Quislings, and another faction of Kurians known as the Lifeweavers strive to preserve humanity. The setting in Way of the Wolf takes place mostly in Southern Command-also called the Ozark Free Territory.

Plot covered, I can now state the obvious; I shall attempt to homebrew a setting for it in DnD. I shall begin with the humans of Southern Command and their Quisling nemeses. Humans shall be like the Humans of DnD in some ways, but there will also be region and background choices that can grant additional benefits.
