My Lords and Ladies!
The new Vampire King, Delthinas Veramme, has not forgotten his debt of honor! He has sent forth a terrible host of Vampire warriors to battle at our side, and the Children of Lovar - abandoned by their father long ago - have returned. Sheltered by the Goddess Mara, they have been granted Maranian Amulets to permit them to walk in daylight, and have gained augmented strength by her divine blessing.
Summoning these creatures of the night shall be no easy task. Firstly, you must participate in Global Quests, attacking and defending as many Battlegrounds as possible to earn Soulstones. Take your Soulstones to the Black Market and purchase the Scrolls for the Lost Arts required to construct the Altar of Mara. Be aware, my Lords and Ladies - you can only buy these scrolls for Soulstones - no Scribe will accept Gold or Sapphires for this dark knowledge.
Once you have raised the Altar of Mara, you will be able to make sacrificial offerings of Iron and Gold to earn Maranian Amulets. These Amulets will give you the power to summon and control these powerful new Vampire units: Seekers, Lost Ones, Priestesses, and Reiters.
It is only desperation that has driven us to this end, and I pray that my lords will not make me look back upon this day with shame and horror. Control your new dark allies well.
Heir of Veyon, Scion of the Firstborn, Lord Regent of Stormfall
