I second @unicorgi's question!
What kind of vampiric lore will we be using? Something modern and romantic or ancient and monstrous? I've been fascinated with the latter lately, but it would be interesting to have both; younger vampires that blend in with humans, older vampires closer to monsters of myth, and the conflict that arises. There could be conflict about killing humans, hunting slayers, or living in secrecy. I've also always liked vampires with shifter powers.

The vampires of this role play would be a mixture of older and more modern vampire lore and there could even be different clans that possess different qualities, almost like those of Vampire: The Masquerade

@Queen Tomato I saw that; I don't know much about Masquerade, my knowledge is mostly in folklore. Maybe the old brutish vampires that I like could be their own clan.

@Kinjaav

Good taste in Vampires. I already have a good idea of a clan I want to make, and if I go through with it, I want to make something rather alien to normal humans.

<--- Interested in playing Redhaven's resident human bartender who is Too Old For This Magic Shi*(Tm) but is opening his establishment to the magic types in order to get more money, even if the Hunters aren't too keen on this...

Questions, squish!
  • 1: Where is Redhaven located? I'm imagining it as a relatively run-of-the-mill American city, but if I'm completely wrong about this, feel free to let me know.
  • 2: Is there a vampire "government" as exists in several of this kinds of settings, a sort of self-proclaimed force of law that organizes and attempts to impose rudimentary regulations on vampire-kind? i.e. the Camarilla?
  • 3: I'm just about finished my sheet, I was just waiting to see if you would be publishing a standard format for character sheets. Will this sheet skeleton be published in the near future (or at all)?

@Rosette ChristopherWhat were you thinking? I had in mind villainous thousand-year-old shapeshifters who love toying with the minds of mortals. I'm partial to Southeastern European folklore as it's some of the oldest vampiric lore, with creatures like the Albanian dhampirs or Shtriga. Though that may be too abstract to draw from directly.

@Loreliee Go ahead! I actually don't know how many is too many...lol
@vertigh0st I think something with the basics. Things will be subject to change as we bang out the specifics.
@Divine Darkness I think the oldest known would have to be 4,000 years. There could be older, but they would be extremely rare and most wouldn't have made it that far without being slain. I'm thinking in this universe, older vampires are much, much more powerful, but their appearances also make it much harder for them to go unnoticed amongst humans (aka: fangs lose the ability to retract; eyes turn permanently red, amber, white, etc.; the pheromones they give off instill primal fear in humans/animals within a close proximity).

As far as werewolves and lycans, those are totally allowed. I'm gonna make it so in this universe, the involuntary full moon transformation happens, but they are all able to transform partially (teeth, claws, eyes change to resemble creature, probably increased body hair lol) at any time.

@unicorgi I would prefer you run by me what you're thinking, but I think it's pretty open-ended.
@Rosette ChristopherShine, GET!
@Queen Tomato 1: Location of Redhaven is Massachusetts, USA. Reasoning: I think it sounds like a Massachusetts town lol
2: Vampire "government"? YAS. There has always been one overarching law amongst vampires that the existence of vampire-kind (and supernaturals in general) must be kept secret from the humans. Now, since the supernaturals have been exposed through some event that has yet to be explained (lol), things are crumbling. There is a sort of Camarilla government that on the surface seeks to placate humans by convincing them that vampires mean them no harm when in actuality, they want to keep humans beneath vampires in the social pecking order. Another movement exists which seeks equality and coexistence between vampires, humans, and all supernaturals. Yet another movement seeks to rule over humankind with an iron fist, using them for nothing but food and entertainment. Other, smaller fractional groups can exist, too, but these are the most prevalent.
3: Standard CS format? I will get on that immediately!
@Kinjaav See my response to Divine Darkness!
@Aleranicus I love this and support it wholeheartedly
@Letter Bee That's fine! I wish you luck!

ALSO
I just want everyone to know that I am usually not available weekdays from 8:00 am CST to 7:00 pm CST because of work, my commute time, and my allotted meal time after work. Also, I stream video games on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday nights from 7:30pm CST to around 11:00 pm CST, so I'm not available during those times, either.

BASICALLY, I am really only available on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday nights, then Saturdays and Sundays during the day.

@yoyohayli Just giving you full disclosure that I will be modifying the formatting for my own peace of tomato, but I will stick to the standardized content fields. If I need to add a section for personal reasons, I'll try to place it as tastefully as possible.

@Queen Tomato That is also fine. The sheet I provided is more just a guideline for what I want. You can add as much as you want.

Think I might go with a vampire character inspired by the Daeva and/or Ventrue from Vampire: The Requiem.

@Divine Darkness That sounds good!

I think how we'll handle clans is deciding how many major ones we need based on the different vampires people make. I don't necessarily want every vampire in their own different clan, you know? We can probably categorize people after-the-fact. Unless everyone thinks it would be easier for me to just give some basic ones for people to choose from.

@yoyohayli So should I leave the clan section blank for now? Or should we all just put something (maybe just put an idea) and we'll consolidate later?

I'm so hyped for this... The lore decisions sound so good.

I have a few ideas in mind, so I'll see what other people come up with. Rather add something to compliment others if I can.
