Vampires and roleplayers
By:
Post # 1
Tonight on the chat, a person came on acting as if he was a "demon, vampire, newborn" and asking if he could control the person he "changes". I immediatly made sure that everyone new he was a fluffy and explained what a vampire was. But that is not why I started this thread, well part of it is. Now I know there a million threads about real vampires, but I would just like to take this time to explain what we are.

Vampires are people BORN lacking in energy and have to get it in one form or another, we do not have super strength or speed, we aren't immortal, and we do not sparkle or burn in the some(although some of us do get sunburns lol). For some it's blood, others it's energy, if I were to try to define all the types of subcategories there are, I would fail, because new subcategories are created all the time. Just a few are; elemental vampires:those who feed off of elemental energy. Pranic vampires:people who feed off of pranic energy(life force) and usually have a broken chakra. The last I am going to name are Tantric vampires: People who feed off of sexual and intimate relationships.

Hybrids

Hybrids are half of one type of vampirism and one type another. THERE IS NO HALF HUMAN HALF VAMPIRE, AND NO HALF DEMON HALF VAMPIRE!!!


How can I change into a vampire?

No. The answer is very simple, there is no spell or ritual that can change you into a vampire, and a vampire cannot change you into a vampire.

Reminder

If anyone on this site ever claims to be an all powerful vampire, or that the were changed into a vampire, or anything among those lines(i.e. mermaids, etc...) report them to the mods immediatly, just like you should do on any site.

Be careful who you beleive

I forgot to add, just because you are a vampire does not mean your kids will be, it isn't a genetically passed down trait. I am a vampire, my mother isn't, her mother isn't, and so on, being a vampire doesn't run in a family. That doesn't mean there hasn't been a family that were all vampires, it just means that most will not be.

If I had your condition, I think I would find another title for it! The word "vampire" will always conjure up the neck biting, blood sucking,undead, who changes into a bat.In other words, Dracula!

unfotunatly not to be negative or anything , Dracula is an 1897 novel by Irish author Bram Stoker , he was inspired by the graves that people built it had a bell on a string that went into the grave so that anyone who got buried alive could ring the bell and people would let this person out , one person was buried alive (dont know his name) , and they let him out ,it was big news at that time and Bram Stoker got inspired with this man (Undead being created there) as well as his journeys to pennselvania so i think psyvamps version is a bit more accurate to the truth

Im curious to how this comes about then. Is it just a random gentic mutation of some sort? Is the mutation trigered by something within blood cells or by another factor? And if you would not want to be related to "vampires" then a nother would be best when describing what you are so you are not confused with mythological creatures.

I absolutely agree with what you have said about vampires. They feed off energies and only a small proportion actually off blood. By your theory I am an Elemental vampire as I feed from all 5 elements but mainly Water and Spirit. It can sometimes be difficult to figure out the fluffys but generally they are easy to spot, somewhere there is a post on signs to spot fluffys, no matter how clever!

Ardor, ''vampirism'' is believed to be caused by a condition of the soul or a broken or damaged chakra. If it were genetic it is more likely that there would be a greater number of ''vampires'' in families and/or it would be a condition recognized by science. However, it is hard to scientifically study a condition of the soul or the metaphysical, in my opinion.

True Vampirism- Vampires are mythological or folkloric beings who subsist by feeding on the life essence (generally in the form of blood) of living creatures, regardless of whether they are undead or a living person.Although vampiric entities have been recorded in many cultures and in spite of speculation by literary historian Brian Frost that the "belief in vampires and bloodsucking demons is as old as man himself", and may go back to "prehistoric times"he term vampire was not popularized until the early 18th century, after an influx of vampire superstition into Western Europe from areas where vampire legends were frequent, such as the Balkans and Eastern Europe although local variants were also known by different names, such as vrykolakas in Greece and strigoi in Romania. This increased level of vampire superstition in Europe led to mass hysteria and in some cases resulted in corpses actually being staked and people being accused of vampirism.

While even folkloric vampires of the Balkans and Eastern Europe had a wide range of appearance ranging from nearly human to bloated rotting corpses, it was the success of John Polidori's 1819 novella The Vampyre that established the archetype of charismatic and sophisticated vampire; it is arguably the most influential vampire work of the early 19th century inspiring such works as Varney the Vampire and eventually Dracula.

However, it is Bram Stoker's 1897 novel Dracula that is remembered as the quintessential vampire novel and which provided the basis of modern vampire fiction. Dracula drew on earlier mythologies of werewolves and similar legendary demons and "was to voice the anxieties of an age", and the "fears of late Victorian patriarchy" The success of this book spawned a distinctive vampire genre, still popular in the 21st century, with books, films, video games, and television shows. The vampire is such a dominant figure in the horror genre that literary historian Susan Sellers places the current vampire myth in the "comparative safety of nightmare fantasy."

What is porphyria, why is it called "The Vampire Disease"?

Porphyria is actually a group of diseases, all pertaining to the
metabolism of porphyrin rings that, along with iron, are responsible for the oxygen-carrying properties of hemoglobin--the red ingredient in blood. Porphyria is a very rare genetic disorder and is not contagious. It may have developed among the European nobility due to inbreeding.

In a 1964 article in the _Proceedings of the Royal Society of Medicine_, it was proposed that porphyria might be an explanation for werewolf legends. Twenty-one years later, chemist David Dolphin presented a paper at a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, proposing that porphyria might explain vampire legends. It was later refuted by other professionals, due to the fact that the only form of porphyria which could have been likened to vampirism was the rarest form, occurring in very few people throughout history.

So why the link between porphyria and vampirism? One of the varieties of porphyria, congenital erythropoietic porphyria, has among its symptoms:severe light sensitivity, reddish-brown urine and teeth, mutilation of the nose, ears, eyelids, and fingers, an excess of body hair, and anemia(compare these symptoms with the description of Stoker's Dracula). Inaddition, some kinds of porphyria are associated with epilepsy. However, there is no evidence that porphyrics have any sort of craving to drink blood and, although it has been conjectured that eating garlic might be harmful to them, it is not.

In short, the hullabaloo over porphyria and vampirism was simply a media overreaction which negatively affected the lives of porphyrics by associating them with vampirism. In one instance, for example, a woman's husband left her because he was afraid he would be bitten in his sleep and have his blood drained by her. So please, take a grain of salt along with anything you hear about porphyrics as vampires.

What is a "psychic vampire"?

The term "psychic vampire" was popularized in the mid-1800s when members of The Theosophical Society turned their attention to researching the psyche, described as the human mind, soul, emotions, and all the latent mental processes which take place within an individual and which are not visible or measurable in the physical world. Psychic vampires (sometimes referred to as psi-vamps) are characterized as individuals who suck energy (as opposed to blood) from others.

Members of The Theosophical Society theorized two types of psychic vampires. One was the "astral", described by Henry Steele Olcott as undead but able to separate astral from material body and leave the grave in search of blood or energy from the living, which it could send back to the buried body in order to sustain its hold on life.The other was the "magnetic", described by Franz Hartmann as a living "psychic sponge" who absorbed energy from those around it.

Although psychic vampirism seems to be a relatively recent phenomenon, legends about vampirelike beings who drain others of their energy or life force, soul or vitality, chi or pa, or who use humans as a means of procreation, predate blood-drinking revenants by thousands of years.
