Just one thing...where are we starting in the world? I suggest london, but that is only because of my love for Victorian England.

#102 Posted by Jean_Luc_LeBeau (82981 posts) - - Show Bio

I imagine people could start wherever they wanted. The Vampire Clans should be heading to their meeting. Where that is hasn't been stated yet. Whoever posts first could set that up.

And I guess we'll go with Victorian times right? No cars/jets/etc etc

As am Lexi. So dont worry. I have no idea about the games/books/etc etc. I'm just going off the outline and from what other people post. But I understand how you feel. If your not feeling it its okay :) you dont have to particulate hun.

#115 Posted by J1NX (2502 posts) - - Show Bio

If you wanna tag along with me Lex and be a hunter we can work together. If ya follow my lead its easy. My research for this stuff is like this:

25% Horror Movies

30% Fiction/Occult Books

40% Time I've played V:tM

5% Made up as I go wink

If anyone that isn't feeling strong in this stuff needs a hand I could always use the help on my side. Vampires are my passion and I know an exceeding amount about them. Makes for an interesting team of hunters.

#123 Posted by LexiCat (5233 posts) - - Show Bio

Thanks J1nxy, but I'm gonna pass on this. I just don't think I have the skills to.. to pull it off. I know my limits you know?

#124 Posted by J1NX (2502 posts) - - Show Bio

OK, here is the slim version (if there needs to be more explaining ask me to elaborate)

Vampire Weaknesses:

Sunlight - Fact! Sunlight and any device that can emit a UV light is harmful and if exposed to it for more than moments can turn fatal. Imagine the scarecrow from the wizard of oz poof

Stake to the heart - Half true; A stake to the heart does not kill a vampire right out. It puts them into a stake called torpor that renders them immobile and unaware of the world around them. Imagine a coma.

Beheading - Fact! Extremely effective in stopping a vampire cold. Without either the head or heart they are as good as the lifeless bodies they really are.

Holy relics - On the subject of holy relics; Holy water is nearly ineffective. Its like rubbing a vampire with poison ivy. It stings but thats about it. As far as crosses, they do nothing, vampires for years were repulsed by them because of their association with the people that hunted them down and killed them. Some vampires are actually fond of crosses. Holy ground, now this is a tricky one, vampires that have exceeded the life of a normal mortal in biblical standards (i.e. 200+ years) cannot step on holy ground without beginning to show their true age and deteriorating. Younger vampires (younger than 100) show no signs of faigue and those in between only show signs if they believe in the myths about all other holy items.

Vampire age - A vampire does not reach a status inside their clan that is worthy of them doing anything worthwhile until about the age of 75. The reason behind that is that they have at this age spent long enough with their new powers that they are comfortable in using them, thus the clan elders can trust them with jobs and rights of the cities and such.

Vampiric society - Vampiric society is governed by 2 bodies. A prince (not always male but before modern times males were the norm) and a council of elders that is elected when the city is formed and again as needed as members either die or disappear. The prince has governing power of the city in which he has control and the council has governing power of the prince. It is an unwise prince that challenges his council unless on matters that are deemed very serious.

That is a lot to absorb I know, but thats the slim version.

I also know a great deal of the hunter society as well.

Nice Jinx, but I dont want people to feel like they have to follow an already established set of rules. Like the society being governed by two people and such. We'll run it a lil more wide open then that.
