One day you're walking home alone at night, when you're cornerred by a vampire. He says, |
"Look, by the clan rules, I have to turn 2 people per year into vampires as part of my membership duties. 2 people to counteract the average number of vampires who get staked or get caught in the sunlight, so the vampire population is always at a certain number. The vampiric year ends in one hour and I'm 1 person short of my quota. I'm making you an offer to join us.
If you decide to become a vampire, you'll have eternal life, providing that no external harm ends it prematurely. You know the vampire legends. So, eternal life, and you'll never age beyond the year you are now. You'll have amazing superhuman strength and speed, and you'll be immune to poison, disease and normal physical injury. You'll be able to mesmerize/hypnotize people at will, and can change shape. You'll also have supernatural charm, which you can use to recruit your own harem of loyal servants. You can turn 2 people into vampires per year, but they cannot be related to you. You'll have superhuman senses.
The downside of being a vampire that you cannot step foot into sunlight again. You can no longer eat or even keep down normal food, for blood will be the only nourishment you can subsist on. You'll not only get used to it, but you'll crave it eventually. You must feed on the living, preferably human. You don't have to kill them, but you will need a pint or two. You can keep a loyal stable who will willingly feed you. You'll outlive everyone you know and love, barring those you've turned. Because you will no longer be among the living, you will cast no reflection. Your lungs no longer have need of breath, and smoking of any kind is pointless. Your heart does not beat, your veins do not transfer blood, and thus, you will be unable to circulate blood to your nether regions, meaning that sex will be impossible (if you're male) or painful and ineffectual (if you're female) from this point on. And, lastly, there are humans out there who believe we are evil, and they seek to slay us all, so you'll have to be covert and probably train your servants well to protect you.
So, what's it going to be?
Yes, make me a vampire
No, I do not want to be a vampire
