Light City - Blacula

I re-watched Blacula this morning and I think Mamuwalde would make a great guest villain for Light City. While he is a monster, he shows remorse and love. He is a true vampire noble. If you want to learn more about Prince Mamuwalde, watch Blacula. Scream Blacula Scream was entertaining, but if you really want to learn about the character watch the first film.

Also, there is an alternate universe in my head that has Mamuwalde being from Wakanda and an ancestor of T'challa, the Black Panther.
Prince Mamuwalde

Real Name: Mamuwalde
First Appearance: Blacula
AC 2 [17]      HD: 8+6    Attacks:  2 Slams (2d6+2) or Bite (1d6, see below)   Special: see below    Move: 12/15 (flying/bat form)

Prince Mamuwalde can cast the following spell: Charm Person 3/day

As a vampire, the prince has many special abilities and advantages. He can turn into a bat and has incredible strength. He is immune to damage from mundane weapons. He might be knocked back by a solid hit with a shovel or something of that nature (but it doesn't actually do damage). However, fire affects him just like it would any other man. He also takes 10 points of damage a round when in direct contact with the sun. Holy water can harm him and if presented by someone with conviction (though not necessarily religious conviction), he can be held at bay with a cross. He can be killed if a wooden stake is driven into his heart while in his coffin or by direct sunlight.

Anyone killed by Mamuwalde's bite will rise as a vampire. Being undead, he can be resurrected via certain black magics.

What do you think about this format? My next Light City project is a villain and henchman guide.

  1. Fantastic! And the format looks great. (I also love that you have a superhero connection in the universe in your head. Glad to know I'm not the only one who does that...I think it's why I like the Super-Team Family: The Lost Issues blog so much...!)
