Vampyres (3.5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Vampyres are a subrace of humanity who have attained immortality through the draining of others life-forces. They are feared by most, besides the amaranthines and golems, who are immune to their life-draining attacks.
Vampyres are sinister and brooding. They often have an icy charm and forceful personality, but most find them unnerving at best and terrifying at worst. They can shift from cold rage to a wild blood-frenzy in seconds.
 Physical Description
Vampyres stand as tall as humans, who they are derived from. They have pale skin, except when they feed of blood, then their skin is flushed. They have black or red eyes and sharpened canine teeth.
Most races fear and revile vampyres, who they view as instruments of evil. While this is not always the case, vampyres often are evil.
Vampyres are usually evil, but vary almost as much as humans do in alignment.
Vampyres often are found in Albion Proper and Jacinth.
Most vampyres have no religion, as they are seeking to attain godhood themselves.
Vampyres speak Albionian or Jacinthian.

If their application is accepted, they may undergo the vampyre ritual, which to complete successfully requires a dc 20 fortitude save. If the save is failed, the applicant dies, and the vampyres eat the body. If the save is successful, the applicant becomes a vampyre, losing all racial traits with the exception of cultural traits (ie weapon proficiency, bonus feats]] and supernatural or spell-like abilities. They gain all vampyre traits, including a +3 level adjustment (DMs who wish to avoid this may have the character lose three levels as a requirement). ---- Back to Main Page → 3.5e Homebrew → Races
