Perhaps the west is only part of it.

It seems like Dracula is more of the East Coast and similar in where he'd be focused. Sure, he'd have a few spreading out. There is an interesting story about a Vampire that ran amok in Washington DC shortly before the Civil War that I came across in a book of myths from the DC area a while back who had a description that would fit Vlad rather well...

You also have Drac Vs the Civil War stuff with southern belles and the like which might be an interesting thing

SotF, could you please be more specific regarding fonts/bibliography?  :o

Ghosts: Washington Revisited: The Ghostlore of the Nation's Capital
By John Alexander

If it helps, the cover also lists it as "A Schiffer Book for Collectors" and copyright is 1998. The story of it is on page 80 of the book...

You can probably find a bunch of other interesting bits and pieces in similar books about good chunks of the east coast.

Can't remember which episode it was, but the ArchyFantasies Podcast had one that went heavily into a couple "vampire burials" from colonial era graveyards.

There are pictures up on Northstars Facebook page of the rules with some illustrations and photos of some of the miniatures.
I don't get the genre, so will not be buying but am impressed With the figures, the dance hall/prostitute Vampiress is lovely. :)

Malamute,  many thanks for the info!



I think that with that outfit, the vampire dancer will fit very well into any Victorian setting as a... err... VAMPIRE DANCER!  ;)  

And the Cree gunslinger as a gypsy turned into a vampire, maybe...

But the fluff of the Dracula's America setting looks like a very lame ANNO DRACULA rip-off to me! (Dracula as president of the US?! WTF?!?!?!)  ;D

At least with ANNO DRACULA we would have a Genevieve miniature!  :-*

Well said, Edu! I agree with you on all of your points.  8)

I really do like the male and female vampires you've shown and I could find a use for both of them.   :)

+1 for a Genevieve miniature!  :-*

I will have these, as long as North Stars casting has improved. I had to send my Rogue Star figures back, as they were terrible. However the customer service from them was excellent.

They are basically Victorian vamps after all, so we can use them for Western, VSF, Gothic Horror... even Pirates and Fantasy (with just a slight adjust on the gun)... and Post Apoc and SF, where all kinds of weird outfits are game!

Specially the lady in red, of course! :D


+1 for a Genevieve miniature!  :-*

I fell in love with her since the publication of "Drachenfels" and "Beasts in Velvet" in the late 80s! I remember buying the lame "Death's Dark Shadows" supplement for WFRP only because it has Genevieve's stats and biography!  lol

The world definitely NEEDS a Gené movie! NOW!!! :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*

Weird West is really a very fun setting! You can mix it with Gothic Horror and VSF, and collecting an Old West town with its buildings and townsfolk can be a very interesting and rewarding hobby by itself! The scenery will also work for Pulp and MULP ("Modern Pulp") adventures...  ;)

We are just moving in this direction after decades of "traditional' fantasy gaming.  We are fairly hooked on Shadows of Brimstone, and these figures should fit right in.
