Apocalyptic Vampires


They come, they destroy, they feed. Oh, and watch out for clowns and cheerleaders...

Apocalyptic Vampires travel from world to world through interdimensional cracks, such as the ones in The Nexus on Earth, and then set up shop. At first they work in the shadows, manipulating things and getting thralls into places of authority. Then they do things like start nuclear wars, bio wars, or anything that'll throw the world into complete and total chaos. Nuclear winter is good because then they can go outdoors more. Then they come out of the shadows and rule.

Apocalyptic Vampires feed on the souls of their victims, draining them of will until they become puppets. (They can eat but don't need to; they have some good recipes involving liver, intestine-wrapped sausages, blood pudding, steak tar-tar, blood wine, etc.) Their victims begin to turn a little twitchy, slowly turning psychotic and decomposing zombie style, so they have a short shelf life.

After achieving an apocalypse, they keep human cattle in pens and rely on thralls to keep order. Some of the Vampires have formed factions; their thralls will take on a certain style of dress to show their allegiance. Two factions in particular are the Clowns and the Cheerleaders. Picture a fat, hairy, putrefying man in a cheerleader's outfit using a whip to drive human cattle. Or a group of smiling clowns having some fun with a person before going through with the slaughter to feed their master.

There is a resistance: a group of humans trying to take back their own world. The leader, a charismatic man in his 30's, has acquired a sword which is capable of defending its bearer from the mind control of the vampires and is especially good at severing heads from shoulders.

Additional Ideas (1)

The main reason they are so successful is that they, attack low or no mana worlds exclusively. Going to modern worlds where vampires exist in movies and holograms. Their mages provide them with magic rings to allow them to survive on worlds like that. This also explains why their servants decay so quickly, without the necessary mana, they are imparted with only the minimum mana to exist and decay quickly. Their thralls are way more important to their hierarchy.

World with a goth subculture are of great value to them, Thralls they don't need to exert much control over and excellent sources of officers.

Update: I know there's a lot more I could do with this sub, especially on the flavor text side, but it's been sitting around for a few years and I think it's time to kick it loose. The core idea has been set down. Any readers so inclined, please feel free to add ideas.

A straightforward idea, though the Sword freetext I think is a stretch.
February 12, 2015, 10:34
Yeah, I should probably take that out. The original idea was to have a more fleshed-out plot hook of the Earth resistance and the sword was going to play a major role in it.

A few musicians play their instruments and a beatiful maiden dances to the music. Wonderful to look upon, you surely will spend a few coppers, will you? In addition, two thieves move through the on-looking crowd. "Spare the coppers - loose the silvers!" your father used to say.
