[Monsters] Nosferatu!

I had this monster planned for my Savage Colonial Gothic game but improved on it since reading the recent Grognardia Retro-Clone version post.

Count Orlok is a traditional Nosferatu Vampire. I suggest that GMs watch both the original movie and the 2000 film Shadow of the Vampire to demonstrate how to play this powerful NPC.
