  • Vampires no longer instantly die when they explore a number of tiles that would reduce them to 0 current HP. They will die however, if attempting to power a glyph that they do not have the current HP to sustain.

This is a major change. A Vampire no longer relies on as much luck in order to get rolling initially- because they have a native first strike, they can overpower creatures their level while even at 1 hp from dungeon exploration.
