wait wait wait does this mod make DF's setting something akin to Dark Souls

I mean, I tried to make it more of my own thing but if there was a spectrum of aesthetic from Dwarf Fortress to Dark Souls this mod would definitely shift things closer to Dark Souls.

nice nice i will definitely try this thank you

Do let me know if anything particularly  buggy shows up

Hello there OP, I've come up with an idea. What if you'd add proper vampires (not dhampirs) not as a civ but instead as loners who can only choose to be Outsiders? Because, you know, as you've said, vampire civs would destroy themselves from the inside out so I had this idea.

Actually, the update I released did add the bloodsucker tag to vampires, I just forgot to mention it. It's hard to test, but basically I think that towers don't really count as normal civs, so there shouldn't be purges in them, and since vampires (true vampires) in this setting build towers and have undead armies, this should work out.

Oh, alrighty, thank you! And regarding character creation in adventure mode, Vampires = True Vampires, right? Or are True Vampires an unplayable caste of vamps?

That'd be correct. "Vampires" are a playable race of magically modified humans, strigoi and nosferatu are humans with an unfortunate magical condition.

Also, is it normal that I cannot feed as a vampire? In vanilla and the majority of other mods that include vampire races, there's the possibility to Feed on an unconscious opponent - or one that has given into pain - by doing Shift+I and choosing to interact with them, IIRC. With your mod however, I cannot do so. What am I doing wrong, if that is indeed possible, or why is it not, if it is, well, not?

Oops, nevermind! I'm actually supposed to do that by pressing E while an opponent is downed. My bad, sorry!

All good, I honestly wasn't really sure how feeding worked until now either, I thought you could just drink spilled blood.

Also, is it just me or Dhampirs are stronger than Vampires in this particular mod? I mean, I could sprint faster as a Dhampir than I did as a Vampire, even if both characters had Superior Strength, Agility and Toughness in Character Creation and both were fully fed (i.e blood intoxicated and strengthened) when I last checked their sprint speed, and Dhampirs can eat & drink properly without having to rely on stolen blood. Plus, I believe that the punches of my Dhampir character hit harder than the Vampire's, not to mention that former displayed feats of strength and speed the later didn't. Dhampirs possess the unnatural regenerative capabilities their parents don't, too.
