..And welcome to White Rabbit Valley, a town for all things hellish. For hundreds of years, powerful vampire families have ruled the supernatural world with an iron fist, all the while remaining hidden from the general public. They have adapted to live among you, forming an ever-growing family with a thirst for blood. Though, each family is not without its growing pains..

In this story, there are no heroes. There is only..






  • Types of Vampires and How They Are Born

    Forebears - Naturally Born Vampires

    Humans who, in their life, died under a specific set of circumstances.
    The circumstances can vary from Forebear to Forebear, but the common denominator seems to be linked to one's own emotions. Whether it be a crippling mental illness, incredibly high social status, insurmountable cruelty that resulted in their passing, a lust for power, or a manic desire to persist after death, something about these intense feelings cause the ghost to inhabit it's own corpse-- Making them both alive and not. Naturally born vampires are more powerful than vampires that are turned, taking on unique abilities that set them apart from that of the average vampire. However, they typically suffer from irrationality, apathy, and in some cases, insanity.

    Fledglings - Turned Vampires
    Humans that are turned by other vampires.
    In order for a Forebear to turn a human into a vampire, that human must be legally and totally dead. The Forebear will then feed their own blood into the mouth of the human corpse, effectively bringing it back to life. (Corpses may be viable for turning up to 3 days after their passing.) Newly born vampires will experience a rush of berserk-like emotions, briefly losing control of themselves having an intense lust to kill. Called 'Beasting' or 'going beast,' it can usually be subverted by knocking the vampire out and waiting for them to wake again, or restraining them for a period of 8-16 hours. The reason for this phenomenon is unknown, but it is theorized that this is the human bodies last-ditch effort to hang on to whatever scrap of humanity it has left by flooding it with rabid emotion. Turned vampires can create other vampires using this same method, furthering their bloodline.

    Boneskins - Starved Vampires
    Vampire's that have intentionally deprived themselves of blood for a certain period of time.

    A play on the phrase 'skin and bones,' Boneskins were once your average vampire. Because every vampire needs to feast on some type of blood, depriving themselves of their only food source has disastrous consequences. Among the average vampire, they can only go a handful of weeks without feeding, before the urge to kill becomes too much for them to bear. They will be reduced to a state similar to that of a freshly born vampire-- The 'going beast' stage-- And have intense difficulties restraining this urge. At which point the starvation is also translated physically, becoming thin and skeletal. If this denial persists further, the vampire will eventually lose all semblance of self, becoming a mindless killing machine. Once they reach this stage, it's effects are irreversible.

    Both Forebears and turned vampires must feast on blood, animal or human, to survive. Animal blood will sate a vampire's hunger, but usually takes larger quantities to do so. Human blood is rich and will satisfy vampires longer and easier than animal blood.

    A Vampire's Power
    Every vampire has a few set abilities that are universal to all vampires.

    Immortality - Pretty self explanatory. Vampires will not age, become sick, or die as a result of typically natural causes.
    Miasma - An ability that can, with practice, influence humans (and humans only) to do their bidding.
    Regeneration - Any small injuries sustained to the vampire (such as a cut, scrape, stab, bullet would, etc. etc.) will heal itself relatively quickly, but larger injuries such as losing a limb, removal of organs, etc. etc. requires a large intake of blood, and will take several years to complete. (Though most organs are not necessary for a vampires survival.)
    Flight - Again, self explanatory. All vampires can fly. Woo!
    Sense - Vampires can 'sense' when other vampires are around. The feeling typically manifests as a faint tickling at the back of the neck. Alternatively, vampires have a unique scent to them - freshly ground vanilla - that can tip other vampires off to their location.
    Brand New - Vampire's are faster, stronger, and less fragile than that of the humans. They can survive even the most intense of trauma's, and do it all again the next day.

    A Vampire's Weaknesses
    Similarly to their powers, vampires have a set of weaknesses universal to all of them.
    Nausea - Vampire's can walk among the living during the day, however they are creatures of the night! The sun will make them sick to their stomachs, becoming fatigued and nauseous until sunset.
    Power Handicap - Similarly to the weakness above, Vampires can't use their abilities during the day. Because of this, many vampires choose to sleep until nightfall.
    Feeding Time - Similar to a human, using one's abilities or increased physical attributes will cause hunger over time-- The more you expend yourself, the hungrier you become.
    Post-Mortem - Vampires, though walking and talking, do not have a heartbeat or a pulse. This makes it slightly more difficult to integrate with human society, but not impossible.
    Expired - Vampires can consume human food to appear more human-like, however without a properly functioning digestive system, it will eventually rot in their stomachs, causing them to vomit.

    Vampire Taboos
    Some things that are generally frowned upon in common vampire society.

    - Consuming the heart of another vampire. While it is said that eating the hearts of your fellow undead will grant you a fraction of their power, it also destroys them completely, leaving no trace of them behind. Though, destroying the heart is the only known way to kill a vampire.

    - Keeping it in the family. Vampires often refer to humans they turn as their 'children,' and as such, having romantic relations with them is generally considered weird. That doesn't stop some of them, though.

    - Interacting with those from your human life. Typically, vampires look for people to turn who do not have those that will miss them. And if they do, they will not be permitted to see them again. Finding ways of communicating to loved ones is a big no-no, as it could potentially expose other vampires. Contact with former loved ones, if uncovered, has.. less-than-pleasant consequences.

Good to see you again my friend! Feel free to fill out a sheet! :) If you want to use your same character go ahead, I just ask you revise it a bit to match the new narrative I created here. :)

This is very interesting, although I'm confused on how the Lineages and special powers work.
Also what will the plot of the RP going forward be, since that would help with deciding motivations?

Hi there! The plot is something to be revealed in the opening arc, but if it helps you out, take a second look at Winona/Johanna's info. ;)

What are you confused about? I'm happy to answer any questions.

What's the character sheet mean by "Lineage?" Does that mean my character was turned by one of the specific characters mention on the "The Vampire Lineages" tab?
And what's going on with the special powers listed on that tab? Are they just for the NPCs or do our characters get them too? If so are they specific to their lineage or can we make them up?

Yes, lineage refers to which family your character belongs to, but it doesn't necessarily have to be one of the 4 family heads. Like it says in the Guidelines tab, it can be a lineage not currently residing in the valley, as long as you specify that. For the powers, it says in the Vampire Lore tab that forebears have abilities that set them apart from regular turned vampires, but these abilities are not hereditary, and only Forebears can develop them on their own. The most a regular vampire is able to do is learn minor spells for magic.

Okay, that answers my questions.

I am interested, I have a concept I want to toss at you before I begin making my CS. You will probably say no to the original idea but it is easily changed into something I know you wont mind either way. You never know unless you ask!

Hiya, feel free to run it by me, or if you want to discuss it privately shoot me a DM. :)

Can the lineage be unknown or do I have to specify one?
Please specify! You don't have to go into immense detail, but just give some general details like where they came from and how they know Ajax. :)
