The Undead Advantage


Recommended Posts

I would like to suggest making it so Vampires have no pulse, or can stop their pulse at will.

Vampires are undead, and don't really need to circulate blood. There are other things you could do with this, making it so stopping their heart makes them disappear from thermal vision, however there's also the problem of balance. If only making it so you can stop/start it at will, it can make it a lot easier to escape or hide by playing dead.

If it was a toggleable ability we would first have to fix the 'rest' verb to allow you to stay floored even when people help intent you. Otherwise you would simply stand up with no pulse and be immediately discovered as alive.

I appreciate this as an ability both because it adds something new for Vampires to play around with, and helps combat the extreme meta-game against Changelings coming back. Not to mention it could seriously aid in roleplay - I've been wanting to do a 'Rising from the dead' gimmick as a vampire (Well, changeling) for quite some time now. Big +1 as a toggle, it might just be me but I can't see any real drawback to it, sans people forgetting they've left it on. I'd definitely suggest adding the automated sending of a message to the user of it along the lines of 'Your hands feel cold.', 'Your chest feels still.' etc etc every now and then to remind them that they do, indeed, have no pulse.
