Following the idea of enlightenment and openness to a variety of cultures and races, King of Lancre decides to invite the Magpyres, a family of vampires, to his castle to join the celebration of his daughter’s birth.
However, drinking wine, eating garlic, and fearing no light vampires no longer intend to leave this castle, wreaking havoc and endangering everyone and everything.
Only a nervous priest and three very peculiar witches can avert a certain misfortune and save the country from being taken over by bloodthirsty beings who dress in rather bizarre ways – by Lancran standards.
Carpe Jugulum, as vampires say. Seize the Throat.
