Raised from the stones of the underworld, the island city of Castle Vodonheim is the home of Lord Vodonheim, an ancient vampire lord said to remember the Garden of Eden. The city's elite are made up of all kinds of undead, from vampires, to liches, to necropolitans, to darker, more sinister undead. The elite feeds off the oppressed people who manage trade and command the lesser undead, such as zombies and skeletons, in menial tasks. A great ruby dome pulsates atop Castle Vodonheim as a gargantuan heartbeat, throbbing in tune with the mortal herd that lives in the city. A great bone bridge stretches miles from the island to the mainland allowing the undead hordes to lay claim to the lands of the living.
