• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

This is going to be a little bit uncomfortable.


Vampire Saga is a series of games from Alawar Games.

Pandora's Box starts with a phone call to the protagonist Tyler Ward from his grandpa Matthew. Matthew starts freaking out claiming that either killed someone or is losing the plot. Tyler heads straight over, to find the house a battlefield and the stairs broken. In the living room, Grandpa has had a heart attack.

After Tyler finds an aspirin, Grandpa tells him about what happened in Puerto Rico, 1898. He was stuck there with no money or papers so he stowed away on the Pandora. One day on the ship, the crew are completely gone and he is surrounded by coffins. And that's were it gets confusing...

The sequel, Welcome To Hell Lock, stars the protagonist David Palmer with amnesia. There are some ghosts and a ninja sneaking around, and a goblin shaped demon, not to mention a zombified sheriff. All we know is that Pandora has chosen David over Tyler from Pandora's Box and that David was probably bitten by Pandora.
