Vampires are powerful beings which require copious quantities of fresh blood. Here is a brief summary of how they compare to the other classes: - Vampires use blood points (bp) instead of mana for casting spells. - Blood points can be lost by taking large amounts of damage during battle. - Spare blood points can save a vampire during battle by providing a small burst of extra hit points (hp). - Vampires get a penalty to armor class during the day, and a bonus during the night. - Vampires may mist walk to their victims under cover of darkness.
