Greetings, Vampires!

Another Halloween season descends, and with it, the delightful dread of our limited-time seasonal DLC! Let your walls crawl with cobwebs by the firelight of your grinning jack-o-lanterns. Wallpaper, carpets, a standing mirror, and more return after a year-long absence that many of our Vampires have longed to possess… and now you can once more.

The Haunted Nights Castle Pack DLC is free to claim, and once you have it, you will have access to it forever. There’s only a limited time to claim it, though, so make sure you get your claws on it until November the 10th!




The Malevolent Monsters Art Competition


In this darkest and most cursed of months, we’re calling out to the twisted imaginations of all of you artists out there for our next art competition! This year, our theme is… monstrous!

Explore the world of Vardoran, tap into its most terrifying creatures, and exemplify the terror of its dangerous denizens! Show us your twist on Gorecrusher’s horned skull or Matka the Curse Weaver’s terrible rituals. Perhaps you have a vivid concept of how Wilfred the Werewolf Chief holds evening meals for his pack. Maybe you want to get even more creative still and imagine your own mutated curiosities from the pools of Gloomrot.


A mutated husk of terror.

Once a man, now a slave to his nature.


Stiched together horrors from the pools of Gloomrot.


Toads twisted by the Cursed Forest.


Born from death, cursed to carry on.


A mysterious creature of the forest, older than the world.


The son of demented ambition, a true monster.


A hellish monstrosity, having emerged from a mass grave.
