Sorry to take up so much space, this is to answer the
questions being asked and will be asked.
Some claim it only adds 10-20 years to ones life: False
How can this be a vampire, as this difference in life span is common amongst humans.
Do vampires have special powers?: True and False
Being a vampire does not give one magical powers, extra strength, etc.. however those who know the method to become a vampire often know a few secret practices, that seem magical.
Do vampires have fangs, wings, etc…?: False
A complex issue that requires a long explanation, but generally no.
Are vampires immortal?: True
If a Vampire is careful and follows every rule exactly, the potiental to live forever is possible, however few ever manage to live even a normal life span, I have never heard of a case over 200, they also say most tire of life by this time, but there are so many rules that can be broken, often resulting in death.
Do vampires drink blood?: True
They do not need to, but they often do or worse.
Can vampires eat food?: True
But they shouldn’t there is many dietary restrictions for a proper vampire.
Are there covens?: True
But there are not large organized groups as one would assume, a proper chain of command is often impossible to maintain.
Can vampires turn others?: False
Only the person themself can become a vampire, but the information on how is only available from those who have done so themselves.
Does sunlight hurt vampires?: False
Very few traditional stories mention, it is a modern myth.
Does silver hurt vampires?: True
it is not lethal, but upsetting to vampires health and wise to be avoided.
Does garlic hurt vampires?: False
No it is just a common religous belief that spiritual creatures hate garlic.
Where do vampires come from?
It is the result of old religous practices that have all but become abandoned these days.
How come this religon is not common knowledge?
Because one of the rules is till kill anyone that sees the practices or tools of the religion, one is also supposed to kill those of other religons as well as destroy churches, the reason for the rumor of hatred of the cross, etc…
How does one become a vampire?
First you will have to find someone who knows how to, this is the hardest part obviously.
Then you will have to give him a reason.
Like what reason?
Often it is personal, people get lonely and seek someone to share such a life with, so the concept of lovesick vampires is common, but dangerous as love is forbidden.
Often the only safe way is when they need a skill unique to you, they want to use you or your ability and see it useful to them to give you equal power.
There could be other reasons, it is obviously on a individual basis.
But how does one become a vampire?
No bites, no virus, no pacts, etc…
Actually it is a result of severe dedication to a set of religous practices, in many ways similar to Taoist immortality, but alot faster and more practical, as well as the idealogy is much different.
What are these practices?
That would take pages to write and explain.
In short, a special diet, sacrifices and strange rituals, strict following of certain rules, etc…
Can Females be vampires?: Yes
But female vampires are very rare, 2 out of 9 are female from my experience.
How do you know?
Because for a period of 6 years I was engaged in such a group.
Why did you leave?
Will I change you?: No
I have no interest or desire to, why would I?
Then why are you here?:
Because alot of people do not want to be vampires, as much as they want a purpose and a place to belong, they make loyal, cheap employees and are often the only ones that can handle the strange working conditions and my eccentrices.
You own a company?
No, I am not a big company owner, but I run a small out of home business.
Can I have a job?
Most likely no, if I was interested in you I would contact you.
Hopefully that effectively answers all basic questions, if you do not believe me, I think it is clear I do not care, I actually encourage you to question information given to you from anyone me included.
