WEFOUNDA World of Vampires: Volume 1


A vampire is a being from folklore that subsists by feeding on the life essence (generally in the form of blood ) of the living. In European folklore , vampires were undead beings that often visited loved ones and caused mischief or deaths in the neighbourhoods they inhabited when they were alive. They wore shrouds and were often described as bloated and of ruddy or dark countenance, markedly different from today's gaunt, pale vampire which dates from the early 19th century.

Vampiric entities have been recorded in most cultures ; the term vampire , previously an arcane subject, was popularised in the West in the early 19th century, after an influx of vampire superstition into Western Europe from areas where vampire legends were frequent, such as the Balkans and Eastern Europe ; [1] local variants were also known by different names, such as shtriga in Albania , vrykolakas in Greece and strigoi in Romania . This increased level of vampire superstition in Europe led to mass hysteria and in some cases resulted in corpses being staked and people being accused of vampirism.

In modern times, the vampire is generally held to be a fictitious entity, although belief in similar vampiric creatures such as the chupacabra still persists in some cultures. Early folk belief in vampires has sometimes been ascribed to the ignorance of the body's process of decomposition after death and how people in pre-industrial societies tried to rationalise this, creating the figure of the vampire to explain the mysteries of death. Porphyria was linked with legends of vampirism in 1985 and received much media exposure, but has since been largely discredited. [2] [3]

One of the most common spooky stories is about the vampire . This sneaky, dark, blood-sucking demon is the scariest character out of all the Halloween monsters . So beware: keep reading at your own risk! Or, you might have a hard time sleeping tonight … vampires just might be the real deal!

The stories about vampires have been around for hundreds of years. They come from countries in Eastern Europe like Austria and Serbia … where some people really do have sharp teeth! Back in the 1700s, many people were hunted like witches... especially those who rebelled against religion. They were considered to be vampires - and they had to be caught!

You might be asking yourself: “What the heck is a vampire anyway?” Traditionally, vampires aren't good-looking high-school kids living in small towns in the U.S. (anyone see Twilight ?). According to legend (in other words, history), a vampire is actually an evil spirit that lurks around a graveyard trying to sneak into someone’s grave. When it succeeds, it enters into the dead body, rising from the coffin at night to feed on blood. Here’s a list of a vampire's main characteristics:

The Munchkins are now vampires . . . and werewolves . . . and changelings. Bash through the haunted house and slay the monsters. The OTHER monsters. You can't slay your fellow munchkins, but you can curse them, send foes at them, and take their stuff. Of course . . .

This is a stand-alone game, which (of course) can be combined with other Munchkin games. And it's illustrated by John Kovalic. OF COURSE. See Igor, Gilly, and all the other Dork Tower characters in their munchkin-vampire finery . . .
