Perhaps there should be two new threads? One for discussion of Vampire Heartbreakers, another for Sci-Fi?


Hmmm...this hearkens back to the "half-dead" discussion:

hmmm... as a tangent, since I wasn't around for that original thread: did anyone suggest the pseudoundead from AD&D 1stEd Monster Manual II as a possible source of the half-dead races?

back to the topic... I remember seeing a game advertised on the web a year or two ago that almost certainly qualifies as a Vampire heartbreaker. it was called "Dhampir". it was very, very loosely based on legends about the offspring of vampires and still-living women, in the sense that they took something that was originally just a regular mortal with some vampire-hunting powers and grafted all the angst and blood-powers from V:tM onto him. the advertising blurb I read sounded like a direct copy of typical White Wolf advertising.

ooops, that makes me think of another possible source for those "half-dead" races: Vampire Hunter D. another rewrite of the dhampir legends.
