Vampire Powered by the Apocalypse

Well, I know. There are already some works for doing vampires with the Apocalypse World engine, at least two that I know about.
One is the extensive add-on for the Urban Shadows game, made by +Tommy Rayburn, his add-on is huge and detailed, and is excellent for playing a World of Darkness campaign using the Urban Shadows game. You can find it here. In my personal opinion, though, this can be better exploited in a mixed game, with werewolves, vampires, wizards, hunters, and so on. Because that's the nature of Urban Shadows.
The other game is Undying, by +Paul Riddle. This is a vampire game, powered by the apocalypse. It looks quite interesting and it seems to explore the predatory nature of vampires quite well. I've never played a diceless game, though, and I would have to find a willing group to test it someday. Needless to say, this game is an original commercial product that has nothing to do with the World of Darkness universe. You can buy Undying here.
