Hi there! I'm a new member so this will be my first thread - hooray for me! I'm trying to write a small story about the superstitious fear of vampires and the overall living dead on the late Middle Ages. The "creatures of the night" will always be omnipresent and I intend to create an unsettling atmosphere of horror and mystery. While I'm still researching on burial customs, diseases and daily life on medieval eastern Europe, I would love some help and opinions on how should I develop the setting of an appropriate village for the tale. Thanks!
