>>122444202>need to drink blood to survive (whether animal blood is okay and whether it needs to be fresh differs)
By far the hardest part but I think I can manage, maybe just use blood from a local butcher? But would red meat give me enough blood?>direct sunlight instantly kills you (reflected sunlight seems mostly okay though)
Kinda sucks, but again, I think I can manage.>silver burns you as if it's red hot
Never really interact with silver.>garlic hurts you
I never eat it.>looking at crosses and/or religious symbols hurts you
Current year, won't be a problem.>no reflection in mirrors
Sucks but maybe a camera can be used? I'd like to be able to see myself shaving and stuff.>can't go inside someone else's home without being invited
I don't go into people's homes without permission now, so this is fine.>need to sleep in a coffin or casket (in some cases, it also needs to contain dirt from your actual grave)
Maybe like orthodox vampires abide by this but I don't even know where I would buy a gothic coffin. I'd prefer a normal bed.>can't cross any running water
I'm assuming this means rivers and large amounts of water? Surely things like sinks and showers and possibly pools should be fine, right?>can't walk on consecrated ground or go inside holy places like temples and churches
Again, current year. I should be okay.
Now, what do you GAIN from being a vampire? From what I see, usually superhuman strength and an almost hypnotic level of charisma are a given. Anything else? Turning into a bat seems kinda cool since I can just simply fly anywhere.
