The Crusade of Blood. A Vampire Counts Roleplay(Recruitment.)
In Character Introduction:

The year is 1727 of the Imperial Calendar, Long before the rise of the most famous of vampire counts, Vladimir Von Carstien. One of the undead lords sits upon a dark throne in the lands Bretonnia brooding after his defeat at the hands of the dwarves. His name is Mordred Von Drakenblood, once a noble paladin of the Death God Morr who was stricken with the curse of vampirism over six hundred years ago by Kreiger Von Hidra of the Blood Dragon Line. In the summer of 1727 Mordred Von Drakenblood marched his undead horde from his castle located in Bretonnia nestled in the lands north of the fey lands of the Forest of Loren and south of the Grey Mountains. Taking his army north towards the Grey Mountains to make his way through one of its many passes and into his ancestral lands of the Empire were he could reclaim what he believed was rightfully his, all of the lands of Sylvania.

In one of the many passages of the Grey Mountains Mordred Von Drakenblood met Dwarven Thane Ragnar Ironhand and his Dwarven host in battle so that he could force his way into the lands of the empire but the heavily armoured Dwarven host and their cannons proved to be much for the ancient armoured skeletons and shambling zombies and even one of Mordred’s prized Vargulfs and after a bloody battle Mordred was forced to flee back to Bretonnia with what was left of his army to rebuild and try again.

So as Mordred sat and brooded on how he was defeated news reached his ears that deep within the heartland of Bretonnia was a castle guarded by Damsels and Knights that hid a dark secret. Buried deep under the castle was the ancient bones of a carmine dragon long since dead and several of the dreaded Mortis Engines. With these he could defeat the dwarves and bolster his forces in preparation to take over Sylvania.

Sending out a call to other lords and ladies of the night to heed his call and come forth to join his service with the goal of drowning the lands of Britannia in a tide of blood which shall be known as the Crusade of Blood and recovering the ancient artefacts that will surely bring great strife and despair to the lands of the living.”

Out of Character Introduction:

Welcome one and all to the Crusade of Blood, a Vampire Counts fantasy roleplay set in Bretonnia the land of Chivalry and Knights, 70 years before the rise of Vladimir Von Carstien and the beginning of the Vampire Count Wars. In this roleplay you shall be taking on the roles of the Vampires, be you the dark noble warriors of the blood dragons, the dark and seductive Lahmians, the masters of the dark arts known as the Necrachs or the beastly and feral Strigoi, that have answered Lord Mordred Von Drakenblood’s call to arms as he sets off to do battle with the knightly lords of the land to recover the bones of a long dead and ancient dragon and several of the magical artefacts known as the Mortis Engines and Coven Thrones, each of you will be one of the undead champions that have joined Mordred’s call though later in the roleplay you will have a chance to command your own forces in battle.

Of Battles and Magic:

For this roleplay I have decided to go with a dice rolling based system that I shall do with actual dice to determine whether your attacks hit/miss, wound and if your opponent survives. I shall note that the rolling will only be for those opponents who are classed as ‘heroes/lords/monsters’ that would normally on table top have more than one wound.

Attack Profile: You will see later on in the thread that there are stat-lines for each blood and each bloodline has a different number of attacks. Attacks represent the number of opponents you can kill in a single post( if that only have 1 ‘wound’) or the amount of attacks you can make against a multi-wound opponent. I shall PM you before hand or post in the update how many of your attacks hit/miss, wound and if you manage to kill your opponent as a small note under the update itself and will allow you to describe the fight in your post. Of course you will know in the update if any of your opponents attacks manage to hit and wound you should they survive of course, though once again I state this will mainly be in the case of fights with multi-wound opponents.

Magic: The magic system in this roleplay will work based on a points system which for every wizard level you have you have 10 points of magical power to spend in your when you wish to cast spells. When casting a spell you will need to pm me before hand so I can tell you whether or not your spell has successfully been cast, miscast or dispelled which you will then roleplay the result when you post.

Like on table top you will have one spell per magic level all it means is you know that kind of spell for example if you get a direct damage spell then you might know different types of direct damage spells but for simplicity and me inventing new spells it will use the same rules as the rules in its profile. This also means that if you have the Loremaster special rule then you will know all spells from your chosen lore. Note that different blood lines have access to different spell lores though the Vampiric Power: Forbidden Lore grants access to any of the warhammer lores(apart from life).

Vampire Bloodlines and Stat Lines:

The Blood Dragons: Sons of Abhorash

The Blood Dragons are Vampire Knights, usually from the realm of Bretonnia. They desire skill in military combat, but unwilling to become rulers or land owners, thus making them undead Knights Errant. Their goal is to succeed in mastering combat, and obtaining the same ability of permanently suppressing the need to drink human blood to survive as their leader, Abhorash did.

They are often surrounded by Ghouls; indeed, people call them ‘Ghoul Kings’.

They are relatively weak in combat but have much greater magical potential than the other vampire bloodlines and suffer the blood lust less than other families. They are described as solitary researchers, working on ever more terrible spells as they live out their undying centuries. Their ultimate goal is to turn all life into death.

The Von Carsteins: The Undead Aristocrats

Generations of Von Carstein vampires have ruled the lands of Sylvania, a cursed stretch of land on the eastern fringes of the Empire. They have clashed many times with the rulers of the Empire, and although they are not the only bloodline of vampires, they are the most well known to citizens of the Empire, and it is vampires such as the Von Carsteins who commonly appear in folk tales and myths.

Revan's at it again! I swear you're mad for running so many games at once.

Is there any reason why the players are unable to raise the dead? It seems somewhat to go against the spirit of the Lore of Vampires.

I am concerned though about the character's power levels. With 500 points to spend each it seems like characters could be really powerful, game breakingly so. Obviously i don't know what enemies you intended to set against the party but still. There also seems to be only limited potential for character growth (narratively and from a 'levelling' standpoint), especially as an ancient old blood loaded up to the gills with spells and magic items.

I am tempted though to create a bonkers Necrach and the uni holidays are coming up.

Midge913 06-05-12 12:46 AM

As per our conversations I am in. I will be working on a character over the next couple of days.

BlackGuard 06-05-12 01:10 AM

Character Creation: You each have 500 points to spend on your character and please follow the character sheet below.

Name: Klous

Homeland: Bretonnia - Montfort Province

Gender: Male

Age: 221

Appearance: Stands approximately 5'10" in height. When he was turned he was in above average physical condition with broad shoulders. Although one could tell that his muscles were wiry instead of bulky and that his muscles seemed to wrap around his bones rather than grow around them. This has given him a rather lithe looking build that does not immediately deleiver intimidation. His dark blonde hair as seen began to fade to a white(ish) color, though this may simply be his own doings.

Personality: Thoughtful is the best description to give Klous. Since he became a vampire he has long pondered what exactly he was meant to do with the curse. He is a consumate tactician who looks before every weakness weather it is in single combat or large-scale battles. He seeks to find the peak of bloodlust and in that moment hope to find a way to control his own cravings. Most of the time he is curt and polite but always searching for weaknesses.

Background and History: Klous was a Knight of Bretonnia, one clad in iron armor and destined to serve in one of his lord's many armies. He fought in a number of campaigns and wars primarily focused on the Beastmen and Orks which occassionally roared from the forests or charged down the mountains. He sated his bloodlust early in his military life, approximately around the age of 25. He claimed he saw a vision from the Lady and set out to become a Questing Knight. For years he went around Bretonnia, the Empire, and even Albion attempting to quest in the name of the Grail and smite the many evils of the world he saw around him.

Finally he was directed to a small chapel dedicated to the god Ulric and within found a simple priest, called Krale. He had come to this chapel to because he had, had a run-in with a fledgling vampire in Albion and he found himself nearly killed by the creature. Now his soul burned for vengeance upon the creatures. The old priest promised him he could help in the situtation and would teach him all he knew. He went out on a number of quests, not all of them as righteous as he would have desired. He murdered merchants in their homes, massacred peasants believed to be involved with vampires. He killed a fair share of the monsters. Each time the priest asked him exactly how things went and what he had learned and the weaknesses in himself he had discovered.

After his final trail he returned to the priest. He was bloody and wounded. He could barley walk and his blade was cracked in a number of places. He had slain a true Vampire, not some fledgling, not some cult of fools nor a petty pack of ghouls -- but a true vampire. Krale asked him how it felt, to which he answered he felt only emptiness in his soul for upon slaying the creature he found not satisfaction. Krale smiled, for the first time since he met Klous and revealed his fangs.

He wasn't able to stop what happened next and he was soundly beaten with little effort, the vampire sinking its teeth into his neck even as he cried out in anguish. He awoke to find Krale standing over him, and he could already feel the effects of the vampire poison coursing through his veins. He was congradulated for his successful completion of his trials and therefore granted immortality. It was the last time he ever saw Krale, who promptly walked out of the chapels crypts. When he completed his transformation he murdered the Ulric priest he found kneeling before the altar but found it wasn't Krale. He never saw him again.

He wondered the Empire and Bretonnia for years, even made an expedition into Kislev. Constantly the bloodlust haunted him and he found himself sinking into madness more and more every day. Over the years he found contacts that were vampires, well after his hatred of his kind ebbed away with the realisation that he could never go back to his old life. He worked for a number of lords and ladies, from Albion to Bretonnia and beyond. He attempted to sate his bloodlust in battle and did his very best to attempt to conceal himself and his true nature from the world. He often fought as a solitary knight, fully encased in armor and rarely speaking. At other times he merely observed the moves and sublties of the court through shadows in the rooms or from hearing the machinations only dare spoke about during the night-hours. He could never become a Grail Knight, this he knew, but he could still kill with a sword, with his hands, he could still fight and gain glory.

Even if such glory would earn him only hatred and damnation in the eyes of the very people he sought to impress.

Blood Line: The Blood Dragons

Vampire Level: Vampire (265 points) [Options Taken: Heavy Armor Replaced by Full Plate Armor - 15pts and Lance (Mounted Only) 10pts]

I'm fairly certain I've made a number of errors. Please point them out to me and I will correct them.

Lord Ramo 06-05-12 01:32 AM

As you know Revan I am in, will have my character up in a couple of days.

khrone forever 06-05-12 07:25 AM

would it be possible for me to join, but my posting may be sporadic as exams are coming up?

Romero's Own 06-05-12 07:34 AM

i will definatly make an oldblood Strigoi who will be absolutly mad. Mwhaha.

revan4559 06-05-12 09:05 AM

Good character Blackguard but i think you misunderstand how the magic works, Per magic level you get 10 magic points which is your magic pool and one spell. You spend your magic points in combat each time you wish to cast a spell so im going to use Mordred as an example.

Mordred Von Drakenblood is a level 2 Wizard: 20 Magic Points, 2 Spells.

He Casts Invocation of Nehek in battle, costing him 5 magic points so his Total of 20 goes down to 15.

So you will need to drop one of your spells to be a legal level 1 wizard.

Also The Obsidian Blade, The Enchanted Shield and Talisman of Endurance already comes to a total of 95 Points of your magic item allowance. As you are only a Vampire your maximum magic item allowance is 75 points. So you will need to look at your magic items again.

My dear Rems.

For now i intend to keep Players as champions of the army so they can get stuck into battle more without having to worry about ordering their troops around and means you are more likely to interact with each other instead of nameless faceless skeletons. Later on though you will get troops when you start storming castles and in battles of ridiculous size. Its a good thing i have the Storm of Magic, Monsterous Arcanum and Throne of Tamukhan books to use along with all Brettonian, Wood Elf and Beastmen army books?

I designed Oldbloods so that seeing as they cost 350 points they only have 150 points left for their options. If they spent all 125 points in their vampiric power section then they would only have 25 points for mundane and magic items. While if they spent 100 points in magic items they would have 50 points left for vampiric powers.

The bonus of being an oldblood is your better stat line and more access to the higher end level of Vampiric Powers such as Master of the Black Arts(which if you are a Necrach oldblood makes you evil as you then have 70 magic points to use when fighting.) while also comining a few other options.

Does anyone else have any more questions? And yes you can join if you want Khorne Forever.

Also here is an Example Character sheet, though ive skipped appearance, personality, background.
