This vampire has a Force of 5 and cannot attack, it can only defend when attacked.
Cards that discard or control a target Vampire cannot be used against these Vampires.
Modifier cards cannot be attached to these Vampires.
These Vampires cannot Block.
These Vampires cannot be targeted for attack until a players third turn (and after).
Name your Elder Vampire.
Determine what clan your Elder Vampire belongs to.
If you control other Vampires of the same clan, they get Politics +1.
Each player starts with a hand of 7 cards.
The oldest player goes first.

Each turn has 5 phases:

If the deck ever runs out, shuffle the discard & draw from it.
You may win a political victory in this phase if you control 20+ points.

GAME DESIGNERS NOTES
Wanted to do something less complicated than Jyhad.
One difference between this & Jyhad is that in Jyhad opponents were
Methuselahs fighting on a global scale to destroy one another.
This is a smaller scale: Players are Elders fighting to control a single city.
