Vampire Bloodlines Overview
The following page provides an overview of each of the currently available bloodlines you may choose for your vampire character. Please note that while vampire characters will not be reopened for several days, we wanted to make this basic information available so that players with existing vampire characters could be aware of the changes. Once these characters are available for play, this section will be expanded with further information on each of the bloodlines.

Jiang Shi Vampires

Available Abilities: Astral Projection, Emotion Drain, Mist Form, Thought Perception
One of the oldest known bloodlines, the Nosferatu seem to have less consistency with who they choose to sire, but most often do so for their own personal gain, or very rarely for the sake of taking a husband or wife.

Shared Flaw: A Nosferatu vampire wishing to travel across any body of water must due so while packed with dirt from the grave where they were first buried or where the vampirism ritual was performed.

Believed to have ties to witch doctors and shamans, the Ramanga are very close to nature and choose to sire those who also wish to strengthen their own bond with nature by transcending that of a mortal life.

Shared Flaw: While appearing more similar to an ordinary human during most circumstances, a Ramanga’s reflection shows only a hideous monster if they were to pass in front of a mirror.
Available Abilities: Hypnosis, Illusion Casting, Shapeshifting, Talons of the Beast
