It's In His Blood

posted by Jordan on 2009/1/24 (Comics)

I've seen a lot of speculation about vampires in the comments, so I thought I would clarify things. I know how vampires work in D&D (more or less), but I'm going off of my own system, which mostly borrows elements from the Elder Scrolls. Sooner or later I'd like to get around to publishing a little guide to vampires in the Anti-Heroes world, but for now, enjoy the comic...

Yay Elder Scrolls! Morrowind totally beats Oblivion. Still waiting on Skyrim.
Miles - 2009/1/27
Awaiting eagerly ^^

@ZakFman: Epic, lol. Very happy

Is everyone else prepared for the 150th-comic-awesomeness that undoubtedly awaits us?
Smiley - 2009/1/26
Skimmer if there is a duel between Aldran and Laris i think it could be a little one sided!
Aldran is about a million times more powerful!! Happy

Wish can be easily messes up. I know two guys who are law grads, and we play DnD, and one of them framed his wish in 12-page legal terms for "I wish i could take no damage" and ended up being removed from all planes of existence.

If we put some science... Vampirism works like a retrovirus. There will always be something what is left. Vampires styl have blood- different than human but they do not have the clasic undead ichor.

Well what the rules say... with magic enything is posible if you have enough of it.

Aldran did not laugh when Lana reported her food run outcome back in #107. Plus he knew a guy who knew a guy (#87). I wonder who else in this comic would try to cure a vampirism (and succeed) just because The Rules say it's not possible.
Querzis - 2009/1/26
Well this explain what he meant by :«I just wanna help you». From the start he just wanted to tell her that there is a cure. Now thats a good guy, offering a chance to become human again before you kill them.
Paeris Kiran - 2009/1/25
Isn´t "Wish" capable of dooing nearly anything? But it costs a lot...
-skimmer- - 2009/1/25
...or if she accept, we can see duel between Aldran and Laris in next 15 chapters...well, maybe he have some sort of secret plan or something..

Knight13: There's a way in Oblivion. Tongue

I think Laris is going to offer a cure, and Lana is going to (at one point; the cure might take a while to obtain) refuse. It's not so much a personality-based theory, but I just have a hard time picturing her returning to life. And she seems to be starting to enjoy her powers.
Smiley - 2009/1/25
If he has a cure do you think Lana would un-vampire herself?
Knight13 - 2009/1/25
As far as I know, there's no way to turn a vampire directly back into a living human in D&D. I suppose he could have been killed and then raised again though.

"But when a cleric bites the vampire [...] the process is reversed." o.O? Now I've officially heard everything... I really hope for a less ridiculus explanation ; )
Miles - 2009/1/25
What is this, a Fourth-Wall-Killer Guild?

Where do I sign up? Very happy
drbbin1 - 2009/1/24
Yay! OotS reference!
Great comic, one of the better ones recently.
Blakjak - 2009/1/24
That actually explains alot. Great Comic, cant wait for further revelations.

Fourth wall is over rated anyways.

Woo Elder Scrolls! Lol, I love the "Deus ex-Homebrew" comment Happy
Elena (aka Lionpawheart) - 2009/1/24
Haha, this reminds me of another comic I like. Basically, you become a vampire when another vampire sucks all the good out of you. But when a cleric bites the vampire, he returns some good into the soul and the process is reversed.
But I don't think that applies to DnD...
Monty - 2009/1/24
It's obvious. If a vampire gets bitten by a normal person, they turn normal.

Probably not, but oh well.
Elhoim - 2009/1/24
No, he bought the DLC that has the vampire cure Happy
dragongirl13 - 2009/1/24
Huh... so what, he got destroyed and raised or something? Huh. Interesting.

Bwahahahaha! Die, Fourth Wall! DIIIIIIEEE!
Bob the ninja - 2009/1/24
Annoyed now you have started changing the dnd base all my dnd theories are useless
Ben Harrison - 2009/1/24
Hehe, brilliant again. I wonder if Laris could end up joining the anti-heroes (temporarily or permanently)?
Sirek - 2009/1/24
Dun Dun Dun Dunnnnnnnnnnnnnn
Lyinginbedmon - 2009/1/24
Darn it, out-theorised with deus ex homebrew
Anvildude - 2009/1/24
Yay elder scrolls!
CrimsonAngel - 2009/1/24
How'd he turn back!?
Niley - 2009/1/24
Hah! Yeah, Fourth Wall! Die! Bwahahaha!
That was awkward... Anyway, nice to see that Laris is getting some development.
Vizen - 2009/1/24
The fourth wall! Its been broken!
Doopliss - 2009/1/24
Well, we were close, anyways. Only one plot-gap left. Very happy
Zend - 2009/1/24
Holy Obama Llamas, Batman!

And the plot thickens.
