This is one of those subs where I might have a minor quibble or two about the execution but love the idea and the surrounding details so much I'm giving it a 5/5.
Evica (for some reason I hear that name in Helena Bonham Carter's lispy voice) is the kind of recurring character that can really give the sense of a changing world. She changes and develops (though keeping certain players from finding a reason to kill her might be tricky at times) over time in a way that can give a sense of passing time. The PCs meet her at one point and she appears to be completely devoted to the faith. Meet her later on and she's booking passage to take up her demonic legacy.
I also like that she's a conflicted villain. It makes the story more poignant, in my eyes. She also seems both oddly naive and monstrous. A tricky combination which I believe you have nailed. She really resonates with me.
I find myself trying to figure out how much I need to do to adapt this figure to bring her into my own game, even though it's a departure from my current plans. I will definitely need to adapt some of those scenarios for a system that doesn't make the characters as tough as level-based systems do.Go to Comment

This will be perfect for the new campaign I'm just getting off the ground (Ancient Near East -ish.) I like this new take on the vampiric weapon trope and the description makes it very unique and cool.
I too like the flavor of WH. Even though I am only mildly familiar with the system, I regularly raid the sourcebooks for ideas (I am currently "plaguing" the party with Skaven and my Chiros sub was partially inspired by the Vampire Counts.)
I did get tripped up a bit by the stats. I could gather the meaning of most by context, but I don't know what Chaos Dice are or how I might translate that into my system of choice. More system neutral description would be much appreciated.
Overall this is an excellent first sub. Welcome!
