  1. So, I ain't figured out exactly how this application process works so I am going to wing it and just write a letter and, uh. Hope to god this works. Discord is: WhatTheDoggDoin#3528 [!] Written on a beige piece of paper in a blued cursive, a letter would try to find it's way into the palace [!] Lord Seneschal, I would like to wish you a good day, I am writing to express my curiosity into the potential of working as a Court Physician for the Augustine. I am still studying the subject, however remain proficient in most categories alongside knowledge of exotic issues such as dealing with injuries sustained from vampires which could be a valuable skill in such times. I currently reside in Providence at Selm Street 8, where I reside in my tailor shop working on my many other hobbies and ambitions but would absolutely love for such an opportunity if it would be ever accepted. God bless, I await eagerly for any news. - Alicia de Rosius
  2. While it may appear to be on hiatus, I have just failed to properly address the work that has been outloaded for those who might enjoy. These new suits, most solely the red vest has begun a new era of designing from the current model of suits being exported from Le Soleil Levant. These have sold to a respectable man in Haense, whom I hope is well satisfied with their purchasing of product. LET'S GET THE BIGGEST OUT OF THE WAY Introducing what is known as: The Olive and Drab. My last first generation models for the suit. Now, for the awaited new generation and my personal favourite so far? Introducing the unique and ultra-stylish: The Western Pioneer. TIME FOR SOME SMALLER WORKS The past few weeks have been hell, but a wise man with an intuitive and business associated mind has aided me in some financial endeavours following the collapse of the Horse Market and hence I rewarded them with an older, yet unfinished works which still looks spectacular if I do say so myself. Even gave them a courtesy haircut, making them look more akin with higher class society. [Left Slide, Blue/Red] While the chaos of Almaris continues to spread, and the unfortunate destruction of the Providence Clinic for barbaric means. I'd taken it upon myself to refurbish their descimated interior and part of the exterior as well to restore it to a reliable center of healing in what should be considered the greatest, most societarily advanced city in Almaris and it is our due dillegence as citizens to appreciate and support their staff as they work tirelessly under inhospitable conditions. I have used another to example the new mens uniform made available to their clinic staff for work trials as I still hash out their womens uniform, but hopefully this will help set the clinics on their way to matching their charitable and skill-driven escapades into keeping our society intact. [See right tab, Black/Purple and Blue or Rolled Sleeves.] Should you wish to bless yourself with a new outfit, and look the part of the modern society then look no further to recieve one of our newest additions. God bless, and remember to support our community in such times of peril.
  3. Yazmin Alcaide would glare towards the poster, her old mind gradually falling apart after the many years following her hiatus from the Inferi studies before she would quietly mutter to herself "Kill those Azdrazi bastards, they deserve no mercy after Arcas." before enscribing a small Ankh sigil beside the works with an orange crayon, snapping it in the process.
  4. Alicia de Rosius would pass by the drawing on her exit from Yong Ping, frowning for a moment before muttering to herself: "Huh, looks familiar." before shaking her head, and continuing on her way hungover from the night before.
  5. So we got a little behind, but the first product has been made for someone. Displaying the 3D Renders of their suit and new head, which only serves as the base variants of the suit; with two additional versions for colder weather, or warmer in some cases. I'd like to name this suit the 'Collected Captain' Get your new suit today.

Built to be an exclusive brand and catering only to the elegance of a well-tuned suit, the new player into the market wishes to help rejuvenate even the oldest of folk into looking as hip and fresh as they were in their glory days, while making those in their prime set to impress their work fellows with their new found confidence and provoke the fairer sex into potentially giving them that second chance they aspired to receive years ago and the fortune with all things is it will develop and grow greater with each passing request with intentions to expand into other markets should the experience and confidence arise in the young Alicia. There are poets that dabble in the tales of what nobility aspires to be, of true intention or of a high social status; there is only one thing we can be certain of, a noble will always be finely dressed to their greatest potential and Le Soleil Levant intends to do just that - with every happy customer comes the ability to make the next even happier. Surely you are entitled to happiness, no? So Why Us? Why not us? I mean surely you must be tempted or at the very least, curious at the prospect of how your invisioned suit may turn out and the glorious balance of colours and detailing in the finer fabric could yield to make or break your character; you can see a sample of our work and my design, a display of elegance and wealth for the finer culture to help you envision the dreams you had once as a child of being the greatest one in the room. You could be outmatched by the greatest intellect to ever grace Providence, the finest jawline which could put other men in awe, a charismatic leader who toys with the concept of vocabulary and speaks the language like they were playing a complex sympthany on a violin but with Le Soleil Levant; you can have what they dont, a beautiful suit of your own choosing to attract the eager eyes of the crowd. Turn your emotions of art and beauty into thoughts of merit and virtue and let me convey these expressions of a high order through the canvas and onto the sewing bed to be sutured to a garment fit for a great man such as yourself. Maybe you're rich and seek to make an image, or seek riches and want the blessing of the Rising Sun; choose us, we cater to all with a fine eye of art and the gold to back it. What Exactly is your Work? Why, I am certainly glad you've asked. I've taken a liberty of sharing my past works and with the help of a skilled associate, I bring you the designs of an eager de Rosius into the fruition of modern reality, and hence the creation of my soon to come orchestra. These are merely concepts, and not for sale anymore.

I seek to discover and unroll the canvas of the mind to discover what you truly desire for your art piece and hence, such things require an intuitive exploration of what size waves rock the decorative warship for which you know as your personality and character - what new lands it seeks to sail and discover, what it shall find and what you will uncover. All of which, I require to create the canvas true to you. Firstly, you must send a letter to Alicia de Rosius at the Selm Street 8 in Providence requesting the services of Le Soleil Levant. 1) We'll need to meet and I am sure you are in dire need of a haircut. A conversation during a relaxing period to learn your true colours, and paint the picture for the idea. [OOC: As an additional, I will redo your head ontop of the charge of the outfit as an entry into the door. This can be done for newer family members, if compensated.] 2) Next, we'll have an idea what we're working with. I'll take some time to ponder the answers and send you a letter with the opportunities which await for your future. [OOC: You can be lazy, I will think of the ideas of what I feel you'll vibe with though I will take your commision ideas. This is a roleplay opportunity, that's the vibe.] 3) Once you have decided with considerable thought to your true desires, I will create the physical representation of your request for you to flaunt. [OOC: I'm going to die internally and mentally trying to go above and beyond on a suit because I will do my best to live up to the hype. It'll be fun, trust me.] 4) You travel to the next gala, or festival with high hopes to please the opposite gender and garner looks of envy and jealousy from all who set eyes on you. [OOC: You get stared at by about 10 people consecutively, become uncomfortable and move to Osanora because it's quiet and nobody stares... But they follow...] ⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇⥇ The OOC Information, Alright, so I am going to have to rewrite this entire section as I have the motivation to do so, but I have currently changed the business model to me more sufficient towards players who lack the neccesary time; however, I do still offer an IC opportunity to influence the direction of your skin as my character will try to understand your characters personality and what will best demonstrate as such with the opportunities presented in the colour pallete. This is no longer neccesary, I will accept OOC transactions for the suits to save us both some time and get what you want. So, let's get to work, shall we? The Single Package [350 Mina] This will be given with four individual pieces, which will primarily be one with a vest and one with a coat othertop; each will have a gloved variant which will equal to a total of four seperate skins for the different weathers or opportunities your character will find themselves in. Should you wish to have a rolled sleeves variant, I can offer this free of charge however it is required for the user to ask during the transaction. This will be more useful for those in the hotter climates, though this is a higher workload then normal which means it is done by an asking basis. As with all my transactions, I do offer one free head rechange and an updating of your available skins should you so require it to keep you in the style of the suits. The Life & Death Package [600 Mina]: This is the same as the above, only with two skins and a 100 mina reduction. The Tricerotops Package [900 Mina]: This is the same as above the above, only three skins and a total of 150 minas reduction. The Haircut Edition [50 Mina] [Unisex] If you're in the mood for a makeover, and your character is a man or woman, I offer haircut services for the low price of 50 mina with the additional skin conversions if neccesary. This can be used even if you don't require a suit, and comes with the potential roleplay if you should desire. Great for a new noble house member, or a wanderer into Providence wishing for a well groomed mustache to lay claim to the women of Oren. Or, you want to spruce up your lengthy hair and rock a new style. If you have any questions, please feel free to message me on Discord. Edited 23/08/2021: Modified prices, options and opened hair variety for either gender. Also, minor modifications to the IC knowledge. How to Contact, You should technically send the letter through the messaging service on here but I will be honest, I may respond but I will probably be late. Send me a letter on Discord to BARCARD1#3528 and I should have an answer hopefully in that day, I should autofill anyway since I am on majority of the discord servers/channels? I still don't know. In case you somehow missed the above, make the letter addressed to Alicia de Rosius asking for the services of Le Soleil Levant. If you're feeling brave, you could even put it here and help me keep this into fruition because I am just starting out and numbers look pretty good to the unsuspecting victims of this new plan. ⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾⬾
  7. I, Barcardi, sign this honourable petition for the betterment of mankind.
  8. I've got work in less than an hour, so i'll make my response brief. Definitely useful with your input on doing a review on the work, and this was about ten hours worth of stuff (I type slow rip) but the idea of this is at least a foot in the door. With the real issue everyone already denoting about too many vampire races, this is attempting to try a different variation in a lesser fashion to prevent having say a weeks worth of work taken out for that sole issue. Though, I will be aiming to improve - I just wanted to get input in the opening, improve the works then wait it out for review so I can get either a list of what needs to be modified to make it viable, or if the idea will be blocked regardless due to the increased variants.
  9. I've got no clue what a partioning or line break is, so I just changed the colour to the natural one I think.
  10. I appreciate the review, and see some of your points but the Strigae fill a different criterea than this. Strigae are fortunate enough to have far more aids to their favour, but they're able to hide among common society and pretend to be what they're not; that's a very fair advantage which creates a divide between this and them. In a sense, as you said, they're apex predators - the Ludis Sanguis are not for the sole reason for they're a natural virus which allows a foot in the door for feral vampire roleplay and in essence, a different take on blood-fiend spies. There is no secret strength, talons to aid or being blindsighted. You know when you meet someone, you hold your characters life in your hand on both sides. This isn't the top tier, moreso an aesthetic which has it's own variety and unique aspects without attempting to tread into another niche. Strigae + Siliti can hide their primal nature, however much each of these races wish to hide from it, the Ludis are driven by it with no escape from it.
  11. Yeah, we've got two. Siliti and Strigae, but they're in their own niche and the Ludis Sanguis is in it's own. They risk exposure should they make big moves, so the Ludis Sanguis gives them a technical barrier and more room for error which should mean either may be more able to operate in the open with the blame falling on this bloodline. That, and this is more accessible.
  12. Thread Title: CA Race Lore - Ludis Sanguis I regret this already. Origin/Background/Culture The Ludis Sanguis was first documented as early as 1745 in Arcas in a squatters den occupying the dormant Nenzing Castle, causing a travelling doctor who was attempting to service the people of Haelun’or to split off their trail and give aid to a man who had been bitten by a bat and had quickly fallen sick and gone ‘insane’ as all accounts would give. The doctor, Ser Alexandre Martin would record his medical subject known only as Skinny to quickly exhibit mild symptoms of the Ludis Sanguis which are known today and quickly spread the virus to two of his local group. Dr Martin quickly recognized the immediate danger he was in and left medicine though he promptly left the area and recorded this phenomenon in his medical journal soon following. However, the ground forces sent to retrieve these infected found nothing but the bloody remains of one of their group with numerous bite marks and a trail leaving out of the once holy site. These were the first known coven to operate from this infection, and coordinated night time raids against unbenounced travellers as the Inferi crisis grew on without much notice. They were fortunate to have their attacks framed to be animals, and hence were left off the radar for longer as their bites slowly infected more and more before a small army of fiends were created; either by tactical planning, or unknowingly due to the infective nature of their feeding. They were eventually marked by investigators and given the name “Blood Sports” to the local caraveners to trail the path and hence began a further inquiry into the preventative measures to stop this plague from spreading like wildfire as their masses continued and the risk of them invading a town grew. While the missing posters went up, bounty posters soon followed for the heads of those who were possessed by this inhumane, darkened essence. Following many months of fighting between the healthy and the ill, they managed to safely recover and infected and took to studying it privately in the countryside in which they discovered valuable information which is used to the modern day on how they operate, look, act and even how to cure from the modern day. They identified this ill-fated creation as the Ludis Sanguis, a strangely natural occurring virus which can medically alter the biochemistry of the human body to suit the needs it requires to safely reproduce internally and then spread. They utilized this method to help cull the infected without unnecessary bloodshed which led to the elimination of the “Blood Sport” Coven, or at least partial elimination. Due to the complex risk of allowing the knowledge of an easily spread virus which alters the mind to seek blood, the information didn’t spread much which gave the coven an advantage in their final days. Known only as the Burying of Truth by the late doctors records, near the times Arcas had nearly fallen to the growing sieges of the Inferi destructive quota and the fabric of the world tearing limb from limb. One of the original group scored a logbook of the doctors and people involved and sought to eliminate everyone in the region who knew of the medical studies, and committed a calculated swary of kills to prevent the word from ever getting out again however fragments of this work just barely made it to Almaris; being gradually collected by scholars interested in the matter, however a lot of work was burnt in these attacks and hence were forcefully put back together from burnt scraps of paper. In the upcoming years as Arcas was lost to the rising tides and splitting mountains, Almaris bore new fruit for the fiendish virus and as the original infected aged, so did the virus. It was discovered that these infected were a lesser developed version of this virus and hence led on to an even greater variant known as the Caedius specifically however most commonly referred under the same name; this was discovered that if a Sanguis was able to reproduce successfully despite the success rate being so low, the newborn would eventually turn in their later years. However this being a very recent study, no incidents have been recorded of these now more tactile variants of the sanguine virus. Physical Description Starting off with a transmission of fluids from a Ludis Sanguis, which could be achieved simply from ingesting blood, saliva being mixed with an open wound or so forth. They will begin a nearly two day procedure as the body adjusts to the virus altering the chemistry and biology of the body within a short period of time. In the event that the person transforming happens to be a Caedius variant, they would follow the same timeline at any given time between the ages of 18 to 23. They would begin as follows: Day One - Symptoms would gradually appear between 12 to 24 hours after infection. The skin would begin to pale, the person appearing sickly. Their veins would begin to become noticeable colourwise. The whites of their eyes would become slightly bloodshot. They would begin to feel pain above their K9 teeth. Day Two - Symptoms would promptly worsen between 24 to 28 hours after infection. Their bloodshot eyes would slowly begin to warp places, appearing to leak into their iris and consume the colours into a crimson red; leaving the whites now untouched. Their nails would strangely grow in length to a more claw-esque nature, becoming more dense and more animalistic in a painfully slow growth procedure. Their veins would become more noticeable than they were before due to the paleness intensifying the colour disposition. However, this would be more prominent on the wrists, neck and temples. Day Two - Their transformation would begin to finish up between 28 to 36 hours after infection. They would begin to sprout elongated fangs in place of their K9’s at any time within this period in a fashion similar to losing baby teeth. This causes intense pain during and after. Their iris would now be consumed into a crimson colour, which would gradually become bioluminescent as the hours went by. Ultimately, this would cause the appearance of the Ludis Sanguis who had completed their transformation to permanently appear with these symptoms without any alteration possible. They would constantly be pale, with defined veins more prominent on the wrists, neck and temples due to the colour variation in between. Their eyes would glow a bioluminescent crimson red, specifically their iris. In replacement to their usual K9 positions, they would be replaced with elongated fangs. Their nails would have grown and become sharper, not enough to pierce skin but enough to leave a mean scratch should enough force be put into it. Mental Description Following the completion of their infection, the Ludis Sanguis virus will alter the state of mind of the individual through a series of chemical changes in their makeup to produce a constant uptick of Mescaline and Psilocybin to be produced which causes a constant mild trip which can be increased when they feed. On par with this, the virus will also create a reproductive urge to spread the virus through biting uninfected and repeating the cycle; which also creates a technical herd mentality to those who are infected without the requirement of purposeful hunting creating union between the Ludis Sanguis. Due to the constant tripping nature of the infected, they are prone to becoming plagued with mental disorders while they are infected which can lead to issues such as: Dissociative Identity Disorder, or split personalities can begin to occur. With these, they’re usually more likely to be associated with their older personalities and the more primal elements influenced by the Ludis Sanguis feeding requirements. Psychosis and Personality Disorders will become commonplace rapidly after their first feeding which can sometimes continue even after the person manages to be cured. OCD which was present further in their bloodline may be triggered by the virus, and could become apparent due to the influences of the psychedelic drugs in their system. Schizophrenia can begin to appear under similar circumstances, however it is often debated on if this is just a bi-product of the psychedelic drugs occuring in their system. While rarely documented, the infected can begin to experience Dissociative Amnesia after prolonged exposure to the virus which is more often found to associate towards their lives prior to infection; however this will be removed should they be cured. In essence, the Ludis Sanguis are an altered version of themselves which reprises their worse characteristics being influenced by a mixture of drug imbalances and trauma caused by the known realisation of their affliction however they lack the ability to survive should they alter it. They’re influenced by the requirement to survive and the affliction’s need to reproduce further to repeat the vicious cycle, similar to an animal in the wild attempting to live another day. Due to being a natural disorder, they do not follow the known criteria of vampires being the spawn of the daemons and the ritualistic knowledge that follows; they are not affected by religion per sense, however they will temporarily lose religious beliefs as the survival cycle will consume their thought. Due to their feeding habits, the Ludis Sanguis have a high risk of acting feral should they be exposed to blood even if they’re fed; often leading to an attempted bite, and following that, feeding until they can sate their thirst - which could be a matter of seconds, to minutes resulting in the person's death. This can lead to the infected being unable to live a normal life if they tried outside of a coven, however it is plausible under certain safeguards, though the underlying risk of being hunted by your animalistic friend upon a papercut will always exist regardless of how you frame it. Despite seeing everyone infected as food, or potential infectees, the infected are known to treat others as pets in a sort of sense or a means to an end. They also gain some strange fears in consequence of their infection, including a sensitivity to sunlight which does not impair but sends them into a feeling of unease. They also fear large bodies of water with no explained reasoning, though shallow bodies could be managed; similar to rabies. Unlike folklore, they hold no fear for religion though they could be psychologically coerced into believing without being given proof, say if the person believed it prior to infection then those memories would carry over until being proven wrong. Abilities Psychedelic Bite Description: Due to the Mescaline and Psilocybin being naturally produced into their bloodstream and ergo saliva, any transmission of their body fluids can produce a trip within a few moments of direct exposure to a moderate degree; which helps incapacitate their targets as they feed. Mechanics of the ability: Once someone has been bitten, or exposed to the Ludis Sanguis bite, they will begin to experience a trip within the first few seconds if it is directly put into their bloodstream and a minute after if they ingest it (for whatever reason) which will last for a minute after the bite has ended, or half a minute after they’ve ingested it and begun to feel the effects. This will not fully incapacitate the target, however temporarily impair them. Specific Red Lines: Should their saliva or blood be stored for this very use, the effect will quickly be rendered null due to the breakdown of said chemicals. You cannot fully disable a person using this, moreso make them less inclined to violence or at least the capacity for it and delay their attacks by a small fraction. Infectious Bite Description: Due to the mixing of the saliva with the bloodstream, their bite will begin the transformation timer of the person being infected with the odds being around a coin flip with each bite. This can also be applied through direct blood transmission of recently taken blood of an infected. Mechanics of the ability: Once the Ludis Sanguis has bitten someone for feeding, the bitten participant will be given the option of being infected with their permission, to allow fate to take course by rolling out of twenty and anything below a ten results in infection, or to flat deny infection with restrictions on multiple recent attacks requiring a roll under the same circumstances (Bitten twice within one hour.) Specific Red Lines: While someone is bitten, they maintain the right to avoid becoming infected. However, should they persist in attacks against the infected, then they are liable to rolling under equal circumstances. You cannot withhold somebody from getting help within their infection time period without their express permission to avoid forceful infections, this is done to help ease OOC hatred. Regulated Immortality Description: Should the Ludis Sanguis be of the Caedius variant, being birthed from an infected has caused a strange mutation which allows the host to fail to age and be able to recover perfectly from injuries should they be given sufficient time and blood to heal. This won’t stop a beheading, nor return a limb however being stabbed in critical organs (excluding the heart and brain) can be fixed within a day with a heavy amount of blood. Mechanics of the ability: Only the Caedius variant may wield this gift, but they become practically impervious to aging and will remain the age their transformation was triggered. In addition, critical injuries can be recovered and healed if they are safely suspended close to their attack; requiring the full bleeding of a healthy individual until they die of blood loss. Specific Red Lines: Only the Caedius variants may use this perk. Due to the variation of the virus genome, the benefit will also cause more significant mental disorders to become more noticeable within the immortal Caedius. To regulate the overpowered nature of this, the Caedius must kill a person by feeding each week or partially feed from three people in this time; be that forceful or arranged. Following from the last statement, failure to do so will result in lethargy and mental distress after the first week's feed, and eventual worsening of symptoms until death in the third week - which will result in a character PK. General Red lines/Restrictions All Ludis Sanguis will struggle daily to resist their primal urges, however they can reside in towns without issues with the exception of losing control at the presence of blood. Resistance is not an option, moreso the duration of their bite is dependent on the time they haven’t fed. Forcing players to become infected and withholding them access to cure themselves through capturing and so forth should not be done without express permission of the opposition OOC for the sake of character and plot development. The Ludis Sanguis will always be experiencing a very mild trip which won’t take them entirely out of the game, but will constantly impair them. This will worsen should they bite someone and the trip will intensify, requiring larger groups and coordination to feed safely. Due to the complex nature of their affliction, the Ludis Sanguis are highly likely to begin experiencing mental disorders and see their original personalities warped into calculated killing machines with blatant instabilities. Make your character the worst version of themselves they can be, all from a simple bite. Repeat (OPTIONAL) The Ludis Sanguis Description: Infected from a bite, and began their transformation the regular way. They’re the most commonly found, and the easiest to deal with and cure - or kill, if your preference is violence. They’re essentially regular versions of their race, with the Ludis Sanguis physical characteristics and urges with no special aids whatsoever except being stuck constantly tripping, being able to give someone else a trip then destroying their life by turning them into a cannibalistic fiend. How to cure?: Should they be in the earliest stages of infection (the two day stage) then the infection is as simple as exposing the bitemark to the liquids of a boiled stem of Gislocinovi then having them ingest a minor amount of wild allium. Should they have fully transformed, the curing procedure would be to have them ingest a large amount of wild allium; about three plants worth. This will cause them to begin losing their vampiric features within twelve hours, however their fangs will remain and will require filing to return to their normal self. Should they die however, they will be resurrected in the cloud temple as non-infected with no memory of their time infected - seemingly a shadow of their history erased.

Make your character the worst version of themselves they can be, all from a simple bite. The Caedius Sanguis Description: Created out of a strange biological mishap, they are the children of a Ludis Sanguis male mating with an uninfected female who failed to become infected as a result. They showed no signs of infection growing up, and could live healthy lives if they were unaware of their conception until they reach the age of eighteen to twenty two where within this time period, they will randomly begin their two day transformation period into this estranged variant of the Ludis Sanguis bloodline. Seemingly immortal as a consequence, these rare few often become the leaders of covens due to their ability to live longer than the regular infected. How to cure?: They cannot be cured, nor saved. The only solution to stopping their infection is simply put, death. Regardless of if they wanted this, there is no other option for these unfortunate few. Red Lines: The Caedius Sanguis cannot be resurrected after they’ve transformed, so once they’ve been finished off and bite the dust - they are PK’d as a consequence. To actually achieve the birth of one, the two parties must roll in between 80 to 88 in one go with story verifying to prevent an uptick in one shot immortal vampires. To keep their immortality as a constant, they must drain someone until death each week or partially drain three people. If they fail to do this, after the first week, they will begin exhibiting lethargy and mental breakdowns until their third week which will cause death. They’re more prone to mental disorders due to their incurable affliction and higher mutations for their immortality, which often mean with their immortality, they sure do crazy quick. Purpose (OOC) So, I admittedly just finished Resident Evil 8 and seeing the absolute chaos House Dimitrescu causes with their cool vampire lore which I will withhold spoiling, and my wanting to just port that to LOTC; I figured, that’d be unoriginal so why don’t I take the crackhead approach to this. So from what I can see, we have the Strigae and Siliti; two cool vampire variants on their own, but they both rely on elements to overpower their enemy or deceive them using magical means which in itself is cool but leaves them hidden for their own safety. Now, there is nothing inherently wrong with that however if you’re one of the few like me who are interested in finding that kind of roleplay without meta - that makes things a tad difficult. This is why I introduce the concept of the Ludis Sanguis, a natural means to Vampirism with a unique twist drawing a few learnings from my previous attempt at the Arbitrium. They’re not concealing their tyranny, or evil aspects by trade, they’re a deck of cards shown to the player for what they’re worth. Likely to be hunted, disliked and the worst however made easy to reproduce the infected and remain in the loop of things - potentially developing into issues for nations as the infected spiral out of control. Like an invasive species, they exist to give purpose to those without objective and hence, will inspire coordination from either parties to live in a world with them involved. You’re not just worrying about killing or curing them, you’re also worried about becoming one as well. However, I've done my best to try and equalize the playing field to prevent this from becoming too much of an issue. This will also give means for the other vampire races to be more open with their attacks, as they’re the most likely candidate to take the blame which could spur more variety of roleplay anyway.
