* CanonWelding[=/=]AlternateUniverse: Alternate versions of Genevieve are a main character in the ''Literature/AnnoDracula'' series, and a secondary character in the ''Literature/DiogenesClub'' series. The ''Diogenes'' universe also has a version of Drachenfels himself, although Constant Drache is drastically less powerful than his counterpart, simply being a crazed architect with a fondness for AlienGeometries.

* DwindlingParty: twice, for different reasons
* ExpositionOfImmortality: ''Drachenfels'' has this a couple of times, between Genevieve and the eponymous villain. Drachenfels himself has his immense age pointed early on; the adventurers reminding themselves that he was around when Sigmar Heldenhammer was still alive, a least two thousand years ago and coming across the remains of his infamous [[AndIMustScream Poison Feast]] in which an ancestor of Oswald's was a victim.
* EyeScream: All the people who die on the way to Castle Drachenfels have their eyes removed...[[spoiler:and then Laszlo Lowenstein ''eats'' them]].

** As of the End-Times books they seem to be totally back in continuity (at least in BroadStrokes), with a resurrected (although amnesiac) Drahenfels serving as one of Nagash's generals against the Hordes of Chaos. He's ultimately destroyed by holy power in the last book, but it's not like it's the first time. An unidentified vampire heavily hinted to be Genevieve also pops up a few times to give the heroes significant intelligence.

That's just the ''prologue''. Twenty five years later, Detlef Sierck, the Empire's greatest playwright, is rescued from debtor's prison by the Crown Prince Oswald. Oswald, the aforementioned brave prince, has a simple proposition for Detlef: he wants to produce a play about his defeat of the Great Enchanter Drachenfels, and he wants Detlef to write and star in it. The original band who travelled with Oswald are reunited for the play's premiere, a one-time performance staged in the very walls of Drachenfels' abandoned fortress, attended by all the nobility of the Empire. WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong!

A RagtagBunchOfMisfits travel to the HauntedCastle of the EvilOverlord, Constant Drachenfels. One by one they fall to his minions and his {{Death Trap}}s, until only the [[PrinceCharming brave prince]] remains to fight the sorcerer and vanquish him at last.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: The Emperor Karl Franz. He isn't the griffon riding {{Badass}} of later versions of Warhammer (mostly on account of being considerably younger in this book) but he seems like a humane and capable individual.

* InexplicablyAwesome: Even Drachenfels has no idea how his powers work, they just do. This is a guy so powerful the RPG supplement says the Chaos gods lend him daemons to keep him from beating them up and taking their lunch money. He was old before the Old Ones first brought magic into the world, and millennia older by the time Chaos first entered it; whatever his power source is it's completely out of context.
