Is there a way to beat this without cheating?  My fighters only have 66 hit points, and it's fire blasting me for 120 points each.  The couple of spells i've picked up are no match, either.  I've done everything in the campaign before going into the Major Waste Repository, unless i've missed something.

Pray that it chooses to cast spells other than Fireblast or Arcane Summon until you can kill it, basically. Four PCs who all have the Divinely Touched trait and pop Divine Aid at the start of the battle stand a chance with a lot of luck. Vampires are not particularly well-balanced monsters.

Fortunately, that fight is optional. As long as you don't mind fighting endless wandering undead.

I seem to remember that you have to get lucky and kill him in the first couple of rounds or not at all.

Jeff always seems to come up with a few fights that depend upon luck to survive the first few rounds where the monster does more damage than your average health.

The best thing about fighting vampires is the cascading summons.

Since i'm essentially at the end of the campaign, stopping future  supplies of undead isn't much of an incentive...

Short of using an editor to beef my party up, i just don't see how this can happen.  It'll take a few turns to mow my way through his platoon before i can get my fighters next to him.  The spell-casters don't yet have any serious battle magic, so they're relegated to support.  Anyway, i guess i'll just skip it and go on to the next scenario.

You usually need to burn through items like wands and potions for healing to have a chance.
