Blood on the Leaves


Stalk
The trees are invariably thick and old, perfect for lurking predators – although there are none. There are many hanging vines, the leaves wilting and pale-green in the verdant twilight. All growth barring the trees is sickly, twisted and abundant. The only sound you might hear is the creaking of wood, the whisper of wind or the patter of rain, cleaning the leaves of their redness.

Encounters within the Area
1
Deadfall – Save Vs Paralyze to dodge the sudden, deadly collapse of a dead tree. 3d10 damage is struck. The most cunning Arboreal Vampires will engineer these deliberately.
2
Trophy Corse – A near-perfect corpse, delicately gripped by a thousand thorns and displayed proudly. The most sophisticated Arboreal Vampires will create scenes with these Trophy Corpses.
3
Leftovers – 1d6 human corpses, utterly shredded by the Arboreal Vampire. No loot, although there seems to be plenty. The wisest Arboreal Vampires will lurk nearby, like a sniper daring you to help an injured friend.
4
Pyre – A huge funeral pyre, awaiting a spark to leap into life. The most insane of Arboreal Vampires flirt with the hated fire and always linger nearby.

An Arboreal Vampire will never strike within the first ten minutes, and always before six hours. They love surprise and taunting their prey. If an obvious sacrifice is being given, they may listen to a group. (40%)

Strike
When they attack, it is never expected. They are as dextrous as spiders, and clamber and slink in the branches silent and swift. Something ancient, degenerate, haughty and deadly. Limbs too-long for the slim torso. A face dominated by teeth sprouting hideously from outside the mouth, a jagged tangle of white hunger. Eyes blazing as a high keening wail splits the air. The head angular, swept backwards. Long hair, perfectly style, flying wild as it descends amongst you.

MORALE 11 (8 vs fire)
ATTACKS
                2 CLAW – 1D8
                1 BITE – 2D10 + DRAIN
DRAIN – In addition to the physical damage of the unkempt maw, the bite of an Arboreal Vampire deals 1d8 CON damage. Healing this damage requires the drinking of Arboreal Vampire blood. Drinkers become dependent without a Save Vs Magic, and die if they are not given a mouthful every fortnight. The vampire gains HP equal to damage deal to CON.
UNDEAD – Immune to sleep, charm, hold, poison and disease. Can be turned.

Combat Complications (assuming ideal engagement for Arboreal Vampire)
1
The vegetation has been taught to sprout thorns and coil around intruders. (damage + entanglement)
2
1d8 Blood-Devotees follow the Vampire into combat. They are level d4 (70%) fighter / (30%) magic users.
3
A feeding-pit is located beside the path – it is 40ft deep, and the Vampire has brought vine-rope with lassos.
4
1d6 Trophy corpses spring from the trees and fight as 3HD ghouls, thorns replacing claws and teeth.


Arboreal Vampires are not mindless beasts – the culture they practice is entirely alien. Each one defines their court through the murdering of all animal life within the area, daubing the plants with the spilt blood and speaking their words of growth. The larger this area, the more powerful a member is considered. Their art is that of the Trophy Corpse, exquisitely arranged, beautified and preserved corpses. The greatest challenge is preserving the prey. The finer the Trophy Corpse, the more refined the Vampire. All Arboreal Vampires respect refinement.

Their hoards are usually piles of interesting objects stripped from their prey, as well as a wardrobe of items for the creation of Trophy Corpses.

  1. Hi Everyone, am MARY from USA,
    This was how me and my Boyfriend became VAMPIRES. I got a guy from the internet called Mr. Barry who was a VAMPIRE so i told him that me and my boyfriend would love to become VAMPIRES so he asked me of my Name ,Country, Age ,State , address and in the next 3 days i got the blood sample through the DHL which me and my boyfriend took in the blood into our body and in the next 30 minutes we turned into a VAMPIRE so if you are interested in becoming a VAMPIRE. First: Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books, Sure. I understand. You are young; you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, but how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the vampires creed today via email: vampirewonden@gmail.com
