*This topic came up shorty after a Twilight viewing. So, I thought I'd post.*

If you had to be a vampire, what kind of vampire would you be?

With all the stories out there about vampires, the selection is vast. Would you be one of those struggling to be "good" vampires, a misunderstood psychic vampire, a shape shifting hunter, a grotesque monster, or a Vlad ruler type searching for Mr/Mrs right? Or would it be some other kind of vampire?

Master of mind control. There is no secret society. There is no revolution.

The rich, secluded type. Time to catch up on all that reading I wanted to do.

I'd definitely want to be the non-sparkly kind.

Vampires shun sunlight because it makes them sparkle and gives them away? That's like saying that Superman actually avoids Kryptonite because it gives him acne. If they really had no weakness like this, why aren't they in charge by now?

On topic, I'd second GoddessGood- go for the "Highlander"-style immortal lifestyle, with a few people chained up in the basement as my own personal "blood bank".

either holed up in a dungeon so I could game all day and all night with my vampire minions

or more of a blade vampire hunter concept.

Because they're not immortal, just hard to kill.

Why bother with people when I could actually own a blood bank?

Psychic vampire, a la Dresden's White Court. Inhumanly pretty? Check. Strength and speed? Check. Not-easily-identifiable feeding method? Check. Stoker trappings? Not so much~ (Then again, I've always been a fan of the succubus/incubus, hehe.)

I like the idea of owning my own dungeon with minions, i could set it up alla-Disneyland with a gift shop. The n have a large prize at the end for all the heroes to try and seek out. In fact i might do that in my game, come to think of it.

I would be one of those horrific monsters, thats what thye are after all monsters, suck blood worse than lawyers or politicians. Think Sabbat, I would be the one to bring out the other vamps to fight me. I would also have lots of little vamp minions and plenty of ghould. I would seize control of a town one day and transport myself and group to another a day or two later. Leaving a trail of bloodshed and death until someone is forced to confront their inner hero and put down the stark raving monster I have become.



Or maybe get an all night candy shop and petting zoo with free pony rides.

I'm confused. Which one was supposed to be more terrifying? ;)

Brian Lumley's Wamphyri might be an interesting vampire. His seem to have some logic to them :)

Ugh no sparkling please. I'd be the hot kind everyone wants to get their blood sucked by with the superhuman strength and speed. Oh, and immortality. My first plan of business? To kill my geography teacher! This way I don't have to do my report...

I definitely wouldnt sparkle...cause then I wouldnt be a vampire at all! Is there a breakdancing ninja vampire? I'd be that one.

Only two ways to go. Either stay out of sight, build a secret life away from prying eyes, or be as public as you can be. Televangelist sounds like a perfectly evil life to unlive.

Yeah what's with this sparkling*!^# seriously I mean come on that's like that one series I read where, get this, BEING A VAMPIRE IS A GENETIC CONDITION!!!!! What's up with that *!^# ? Huh, HUH?!

Lets see, I'd be the world spaning vampire running around the globe to grab up every scratch of magical knowledge I possible could so I could acomplish the dual goals of becomming thew most powerful mage ever, and learning to talk like Yoda.

Sort of a weird cross be tween a Malkavian and a Tremure.:D

LOLs sounds like the writer was watching an X-Men movie when they wrote that. Yea I'll check out most anything on Vampires and when I got to the part in Twilight where he sparkles I had this feeling in my stomach like I just drank expired milk. If I were a vampire I'd go to that authors house and show her a real vampire.

Sparkling? Maybe Edward isnt a vampire but instead....A Glimmer Elf of the Summervale!!

Got this off of an old RPing mailing list years ago. I have no idea of its original sorce.

What I will do if I Am Ever a Vampire

1. I will not pick off friends, family or neighbors of the Hero one at a time. This annoys the Hero and drives him into action. They'll still be there when he is dead.

2. There are thousands of people who want to be vampires. Why pick someone who doesn't?

3. The Hero will come armed with holy water, a cross and a stake. I will come armed with a 5.56 mm assault rifle, a rocket launcher and grenades.

4. When biting women to make them slaves, I will bite them in discreet areas, such as the inside of the thigh, the lower part of the breast, or some similar location not requiring painfully obvious alteration of clothing or ridiculous accessories to conceal.

5. I will equip my home with a marvelous device called a Burglar Alarm with an automatic dialer. It will be difficult for the Hero to kill me in my "sleep" while he's under arrest for attempted break and enter.

6. My coffin will be concealed and will be a plain wooden box. The elaborate oak coffin with gold trim resting in the basement will be equipped with claymores designed to shred the body of anyone who opens it.

7. I will wear a watch, and verify what time the next day's sunrise occurs, every evening, before heading out for the night's activities.

8. The formal attire with cape will be reserved for special occasions. Jeans and a t-shirt will be fine for everyday wear, as they are less noticeable.

9. I will not engage in a battle of wits with the Hero. I plan on killing him anyway so what's the point?

10. There will be no windows, doors, elevator shafts, or air vents accessing my Hidden Lair that have any sort of access to the outside through which sunlight can be directed to my Lair using mirrors.

Some of us do not require rugs.

Yes I know, but I have no idea who to credit with the creation of this particular variation.
