This is going to be the longest of the Shadow Pool achievements. Start a game of Shadow Plague on casual with the Brawler and Budget Bat genes. These remove the DNA cost for travel and murder.

Start anywhere except Turkey, then evolve:

Night Wraith

Put a lair down wherever, then immediately start flying around the world. Try to set up another travel section the moment you land, you're trying not to passively kill anyone. The more successful you are, the slower it will take for them to notice.

After a while (it took about four months in-game for me) you may get a newsreel about a caver in Turkey discovering a deep network. Keep in mind, it does not pop up at this point! Save here, as this will help get the other achievements. Evolve Shadow Blessing and focus on infecting as many countries as possible for the DNA bonus. When you get the newsreel for cavers expecting to discover new species, start making your way back to Turkey. The first actual popup regarding the Shadow Pool is go time.

Infect Turkey and set up a lair. Don't stick around to help the infection spread, immediately get out and continue spreading so you won't be found. Eventually you'll get another popup about ancient human remains near the Shadow Pool, then another about the Shadow Pool hosting unique organisms.

Wait for the newsreel to put two more notices up: Shadow Pool organisms baffle scientific community, and Shadow Pool organisms 'billions of years old.' You'll want to expand the newsreel every now and then, as it's really easy to miss these two. Once this is done, the time for stealth has passed. Evolve:

Shadow Portal
Blood Gift
Dark Cloud
Shadow Trail
Corrupted Air

Weeping Sores
Jugular Bite

Past this, evolve for infectivity in rural areas, Zoonotic Shift to Wolves if you have the DNA, but be sure to keep 35-40 DNA for the final push. Teleport back to Turkey and use the new passive Corrupted Air to completely infect the country.

You should be spotted soon and the Templars roll out the bases. Don't attack them! Instead, wait for the popup that the first vampire came from the Shadow Pool. Now evolve:

Shadow Slaves
Muscular Hypotrophy

Before long, the next popup states the Templars fail to access the Shadow Pool, granting this achievement.
