The Strigoi, the Cursed of Venus, have spread through the Holy Roman
Empire, and parts beyond, like a plague. In response, Pope Leo III
takes advantage of the scourge to settle an old score with the man he

the heart of the empire and demands sovereignty over what he believes is
a papal matter.
Charlemagne disagrees, and soon papal and imperial forces stand

the Empire further into chaos and destruction, or will their Deargh Du
"angels" save them from themselves and from Venus' Cursed?
Continue the journey... the fourth in a series of stories revolving
