Vampire Kingdoms

The so-called Vampire Kingdoms were several states ruled by vampires and other undead from about 2,200 to about 1,380 PI.

There were three distinct eras during which the states thrived. The first era lasted 91 years. Second Era lasted 182 years and the Atlas Imperial Era lasted 546 years.

The Early Kingdoms


Tlacatlia had been a great kingdom of northern Ilefain, initially competing with their fellow vampiric states in the south for dominance of the region, and also with the Orcs to the north, the goblins to the east in the Mountains and the halflings and later humans to the west. It established colonies in the east, and it asserted itself over the southern vampire kingdoms also. Later, Tlacatlia came into conflict with the newly created state of Atlas which eventually eclipsed the older vampiric states in the south.

The Empire of Atlas

Atlas was an ancient vampiric nation and cultural region in central-southern Ilefain, with Atoyatl as its capital. Atlas emerged as a major power when the great vampire king Mictlantecuhtli created an empire out of the territories of the former Tlacatlian Empire. Atlas retained the written aardian language for official use (the language of its native populace). The vampiric traditions played a major role in later Atlan culture, and the region would remain an important cultural center, even under protracted and lengthy periods of outside rule, throughout the Bronze Age and the Early Iron Age.

Vampire Kings

The Vampire Kings were worshiped as gods of death by the mortals that lived in their realms. Each King represented an aspect of death.
