Playstyle

The von Carsteins are an abominable bloodline of Undead nobles from Sylvania. Striking out at the head of a mighty Undead host, a Vampire Lord can raise the dead, summoning them to his indomitable will. Vlad and Mannfred von Carstein each believe they should be the Eternal Emperor, something Karl Franz will learn - as the living pay tribute to their Unholy Majesty!
