Draculesti Lore.png

Lore Entry # Location
Our wisdom flows so sweet. Taste and see.

TRANSMIT - initiate the Mertvaya voda signal - RECEIVE - initiate the Zhivaya voda frequency - KILLS VERMIN DEAD - initiate the sentinel syntax - MAY CAUSE IRRITATION - initiate the Tepes Proclamation - WITNESS - The Drǎculeşti.

Entry 1
Besieged Farmlands, (443,611): You you have to use the runes to create platforms, as in Tier 4 of the mission The Cost of Magic. On the second pillar you get to, there are two runes - one for the mission objective and one for the lore. NOTE: You do NOT have be on the mission to use these runes to get the lore.
The universe is a dark cave. Time is a bat obscenity bouncing off the walls. Initiate temporal echo location. SHRIEK! Entry 2
Besieged Farmlands, (320,723): Up on the scaffolding. You'll have to watch out for landmines on the scaffolding as you first come up.
Initiate the sanguine spectrum.

The blood is the life. It sealed a promise, and a vagabond people became forever bound to the Drǎculeşti, of the House of Basarab, and its line of Wallachian voivodes. They drank deep of the Living Water and of the Dead Water and swore that all monsters would know terror.

Entry 3
Besieged Farmlands, (824,847): Up on the top of the cliffs above the Romany Camp
You little ones have spilt much ink, and more breath, on tales of the Romany, the wanderers, the gypsies, the people who came out of India and spread through Asia Minor and Europe a millenium ago. It's mostly lies, and it's not the point. Entry 4
The Shadowy Forest, (784,552): Up on the hill, behind the Chapel of the Prince
This is the point.

A family of the people camps near Harbaburesti, in Romania. They claim to be the heirs of the Order of the Dragon. They say they are descended from those who swore an oath to Vlad III Dracula, who some call the impaler. They joined him in the hunt for the night breed - the strigoi, the moroi, the muroni, the zmeu, and the nosferatu. They fought against Dracula's estranged wife-turned-vampire, Mara.

Entry 5
The Shadowy Forest, (662,589): On top of the wall around the Draculesti Graveyard. You can get to it by jumping from the roof of the nearby mausoleum inside the wall at (670,596)'
Designation Drǎculeşti is a living, hereditary story, passed on in meat-body iterations. They transmit via the oral tradition, passing on the true history of Dracula and his fall. Each generation trains for a great war. They hone their hatred for all supernatural predators. Entry 6
The Shadowy Forest, (831,850): On a flatbed truck behind Tibor and Luminita in the Romany Camp
Vampire, lycanthrope, or faerie - it matters little to these Romany. The time for such peternatural creatures ended the moment Dracula decreed it so. Perhaps the beasts that stalk the night tell their own bedtime horror stories of the Drǎculeşti. Eh, sweetling? Entry 7
Carpathian Fangs, (386,972): Inside a cave accessed at (419,962), you'll have to kill The Grey to get it
This vicious zeal fills the villagers of Harbabureşti with a deep mistrust of these strange Romany. The simple folk lived peacefully, side by side with the supernatural as far back as their myopic memory stretches. They mutter that the influx of bloodthirsty monsters came only after the gypsies arrived and broke the truce.

The Drǎculeşti do little to ease the worries of the villagers. They see such niceties as a waste of time. Their cause is high. Their empathy is limited.

Entry 8
The Castle, Solo Instance (380,1016) : During The Castle (Mission) From the sitting room with the stairs that go to the upper level. Open the western door with the blue key card. There will be a small room to the right with some crates in it. The lore is on some crates just to the side of the arch in that small room.
Listen now, sweetling. Prophecies shiver on the wind - the war between light and dark in Transylvania, the return of Dracula, the Romany joining him to finish where their Prince failed before.

Do the prophecies speak true? The pieces tumble into place. The vampires return to Bacaş County. She has returned, secret worlder. Mara has returned!

Entry 9
The Castle, Solo Instance (379,1004) : During The Castle (Mission). After going up the stairs from the sitting room, go across the balcony into the hallway. Use the first door to the right with the blue keypad.
