Coven is a multiplayer mod for Half-life 2 deathmatch. It is born from Justin approaching Brenden to create a source-engine based successor to Vampire Slayer (Half-life 1 mod) infused with some Left 4 Dead versus mode action, since several of the other attempts fell through. You will find that Coven is only loosely based on Vampire Slayer- Brenden has in fact never played the game. Therefore, several of the very basic concepts are present... vampires, slayers, rounds, etc. Moreover, the Coven team has set out with the attitude to make a great game based on Valve's source engine with vampires and slayers duking it out from the ground up... our ideas not necessarily being based on anything, or in other instances heavily borrowing from vampire lore.
