Okay, I don't have the specs completely done yet, I'm just posting this to see if anyone would be interested. Yes, it will be a vampire thread, but, instead of everyone starting out as vampires, or people hunting for them, there will only be one vampire to begin with. The story will take place during the American Revolutionary War, in remote reaches of New Hampshire. Why NH? Because it gets no love ordinarily. Anyway, the basic plot is about my character, a young woman, who falls in love with a guy, who asks her to marry him before he goes off to join the war. The girl accepts, and within a few months time, her fiancé dies.

The story would start off with my character still in mourning, and, now this is a part I haven't figured out yet, hopefully someone would be willing to help me, a vampire (male or female, wouldn't matter, but preferably female) would somehow find her, talk her into becoming a vampire, and viola! My character would become a vampire. Thrown into the mix, for spice, would be the girls family. Her mother, some siblings, but no father, because he too would have run off to join the war. There may be room for a few extra vampires, not sure yet.

Anyway, as the story progresses, we would eventually discover the vampires need to move, and the story would hopefully end with them in Europe. As you can see, I know how I want to end this, I know how I basically would like it to flow, and, if no one is interested, I might be able to turn this idea into a story. But I'd like to try it as an rp first.

ya know I'd be interested... I could even be the vampire you need to start it off... depends on if he/she will be a part of the story as well or just fade off...?

They would be a part of the story. A pretty big part, actually.

EDIT: Something I need to add for everyone. There will be room for up to 2 more vampires, but no more than that. And there will be dual arcs to the story, one for the vamp's, one for the family, that will tie into each other as the thread goes along, and eventually ends.

Well I would love to be a Male vampire who is friends with the one who turns the main character. What kind of vampires will they be?

Fairly average. Silver will injure them, but unless left in the blood stream it won't kill them. Beheading and staking is the best way for them to die. Fire will kill them, but only if left alone. They will be faster than humans, any blood will sustain them, but human blood gives them the best nutrients. Only some have the ability to read minds, as given to them by their sire. And they can sense other vampires.

How about looks? Are we talking Nosferatu or holywood type vampires(Underworld).

11/08/2005 7:59 AM

Not exactly sure what you meant by that, so I'll answer as best as I can. The looks for the vampires are going to be pretty regular. I mean, they'll look like regular people from a distance, but up close they are extremely pale, as if they have no blood in their body, and their eyes will have a slight, hypnotic glow.

Holywood style = Very pretty, pale, dark hair. All in all very goth like.

Nosferatu = Damn ugly, evil and very fangy!

Your style borderline hollywood. But still good. Tah.
I will defintely join.
