This I like-a place where Vampires used to rule but were forced out. Go to Comment

Its a cool idea, but I would have taken a more evil take on them. In your presentation its assumed that all ash children tend towards fighting the vampires. It would seem to me that with those abilities, in that environment, they would be the lesser evil, and would come to rule the human populations.

What happens to the person who drinks the vampire blood to sire an ash child? What happens if both parents imbibe the blood? Why would the ash children population dwindle if there were a large number of ash children, couldn't they breed and create a sustainable population?

What happens if Ash children imbibe vampire blood when mating, do you get yet stronger ash children, and how powerful could such a being theoretically become? Go to Comment

Hmmm... what a character.

One way to move her cold heart slightly, or manipulate her, would be to promise her healing. Even partial restoring of her features would be great, requiring of course powerful magic. Just don't promise her something you can't fulfil. Go to Comment

Oh yes. I think she will do.

She can just be another dramatic persona in the campaign. She can slowly slip into the villan role, possibly right before the character's eyes.

As a mercenary adjunct, she will easily be in places to maximize her effects.

Well written, well plotted out, lots of option. Two paws.

The question is, does her name mean the same thing in the local tongue?

Is this her birth name or is it her 'working name'.

These decisions change the complexity and outlook of this character. Go to Comment

I encountered the term Sippenhaft while reading Greg Isles(?) Spandau Phoenix, and it is a germanic term that goes back to the more brutal norse times. Sippenhaft is the practice of eliminating not only one person by assassination, but the complete and total eradication of his or her blood family. This includes all of the elders, the women, and the children. The practice was 'revived' (not 100% sure on that) during the Nazi era of WWII, where some germans who tried to assassinate Hitler were imprisoned and only executed after their entire family was killed first.

Brutal, yet surprisingly effective Go to Comment

It is her working name, one adopted for the brutal definition of the term. In a sense it is a demonstration of her methodical and vindictive work ethic. As for the local tongue, I would assume that the name means nothing in particular, and generally accorded it as a term of an archaic language. Go to Comment

Sippenhaft is a very interesting name. I would be curious to know if it just came to you, or was there some other inspiration. Go to Comment

Hmm, bad 2006 Valadaar. This sub deserved more than a vote.

I like this character - she has the feel of a batman villain and I could see her play multiple roles in a campaign as others have said.

Very Good!

What a deep idea!

Only discrepancy I thought I saw was that when she looked into the goblet and saw the domestic dispute, the wife hits him and he doesn't show retaliation or anything but at then end of the paragraph is mentions he was a monster and a violent man. That wasn't shown unless I read it wrong.

Great write-up! Go to Comment
