It all began around the 15th century when a man by the name of Henry Von Schmidt's obsession for grave robbing got out of control. Henry stumbled onto a grave with a pentagram etched into the tombstone and noticed writing on the tombstone. It read: "Whosoever desecrates Richard Valence III's final resting place will surely die!"
Henry laughed it off, "Hogwash! Some children probably wrote those words and made up a story so the townspeople would think the cemetery was haunted. They probably thought it would give them some kind of entertainment since there wasn't much excitement in this little town called 'Vampinstein.'"
Legend has it that the town's name was changed to Vampinstein after an experiment by a mad doctor called Dr. Lufenstein went very wrong.
