Total War: WARHAMMER Wiki

Templehof is a minor Vampire Counts faction introduced in Total War: Warhammer.

It is led by Zelig van Kruger and can be found in the eastern parts of the Empire, in the lands of Sylvania.


This town in Sylvania, bordering the imperial province of Stirland is named for its famed temple of Morr, which has not seen a priest in 800 years. The current township's Burgermeister is Vancel von Templehof and recently a cabal of wizards from The Light Order in Templehof have taken residence in Templehof.[1]

In the Total War: Warhammer games however, the town of Templehof is under control by a faction of Vampire Counts.

They act as an early-game enemy for Sylvania and Von Carstein players.


  • As of the Potion of Speed Update in the Mortal Empire campaign, Templehof's Eastern Sylvanian territory will be given to Sylvania from the start and its Western territory to the Von Carstein faction when those factions are played as the AI. This reduces the time spent by the two major Vampire factions fighting Templehof. This means that either faction is more likely to become a threat early on and can put up a better fight against The Empire and The Dwarfs.
  • In the game files Templehof is named "rival_sylvanian_vamps".
