    In cold dreary night a man stumbles down a deserted ally of gloom and puddles. The previous day rain had come as the man stumbles in a drunken stopper. A dark figure closes in at alarming speed and almost floats across the pavement as if strings were attached causing an unbending figure to move towards its prey. A moon shines at quarter full in the distance the dark figure almost flies and grabs the man. Only a muffled cry for help is heard as two white glistening objects flash and sink into flesh both figures sink further into the darkness as death hangs in the air pining after its new found victim.

    Starting Location
    Playable Character Types
    Vampires: Half human and half demon not exactly the type you want to meet in dark, unless of course you want to die.
    Traits: These beings can use cars, run quickly, fight well, have incredible strength, live for as long as they are not defeated in battle, and can mix their blood with their victims to create new vampires. They can be killed using several different methods including fire, beheading, and wooden streak to the heart.
    Vampire Slayers: Humans with strength and ability to face most demons and monsters.
    Traits: Stronger then typical humans, can run at speeds faster than most humans, heal quickly, have great balance, and can endure blows that would kill most humans. However, they can be killed in battle the same as normal humans and only four are born to each generation.
    Vampire hunters: fight the undead and their dastardly plot despite the fact they are normal humans
    Traits: experienced fighters, train in battle tactics, are weapon experts, use brains to overcome their demon foes. However, they are easily killed if caught unaware, can be turned by vampires, and must usually work in teams for safety reasons.

    Exceptional Vampire Hunters: those who have abilities that help them defeat the undead like necromancy

    NPC types
    Half demons or Monsters: Can either be good or evil it depends on what type of monster or demon and if they have been bewitched in some way. It is safe to say that caution is advised.
    Traits: stronger than humans, have abilities beyond normal beings, fight well, and have other abilities based on what the monster or half demon. These various nasty creatures can be defeated through different methods. The best thing is to consult your local truth minder for help.
    Minions: Follow any evil being that they perceive as strong. They have a strong sense of devotion towards this evil being.
    Traits: Normally have great strength and immense courage. However, these creatures are not talented in prolonged fights, only follow directions poorly, and are single minded in achieving their objectives

    Traits: Love books, reading, research, and everything worth knowing about the occult and monsters of any kind due to their vast libraries and secret funding.

    Werewolves: Half human and half demon dog. They can rip you apart as soon as look at you never face one of these unless you are truly prepared
    Traits: While transformed werewolves are exceptionally strong, fast, agile, smarter than most dogs, can kill in one bite, live longer than regular humans, and can create other werewolves by biting others.

    GM OOG/OOC: I really could not resist posting. To the one person that has a CS you are not required to post for another two to three weeks. Unless you want to.

    IC: Joseph Morgan
    Joseph asked “So what did they say this time?”

    IC: Walter Watanabe
    “They said it looked like another unexplained death over the radio. We both know that is code for killed by vampire, especially if we are assigned the case. You would think they would be little more inventive than that,” said Walter.

    IC: Joseph
    “Yeah tell me about it, this is the third death by vampire this week. I have also dusted at least five of them, subdued two werewolves, and stopped some strange sort of heart hunter monster. “
    Joseph said partially kidding and acting the excused vampire hunter, “I cannot believe it only the middle of the week!”
    Joseph said seriously, “Something is going on and I don’t like it one little bit. I cannot help but feeling this is beginning of something."
    Joseph said pensively, We are going to have to consider the possibility of consulting a truth minder maybe there is something we are missing.

    IC: Walter
    Walter asked in a whining voice, “Do we have to?”

    Walter continued not waiting for an answer,Those guys are so, Walter paused as if choosing his words, depressing and wrapped up in research.

    IC: Joseph
    Joseph chuckled and said, Yeah, I wonder if some of them are robots.
