Just an intrest check for an idea I've had for a while: December 22, 2017. America is preparing for Christmas, and even the residents of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue get to relax for the holiday. But as night falls, things start unraveling. Scattered, fragmented, and distorted reports come in: The Pentagon is under attack, the Vice President has been killed, lawmakers are being assassinated, the Internet has been shut down, long range communications are no longer viable. The Secret Service scrambles to protect the First Family, hoping to find some safe haven as darkness falls around Washington. When day comes, the United States Government is in ruins, and a new power rules in the United States: Vampires. Led by a young (vampire-termed) and charismatic vampire, and bolstered by hundreds of newly-turned recruits, they overwhelmed the Government in a matter of hours. They know humanity is not going to go quietly into the night, and that war is coming. A number of roles are open, and more can be added upon request and explanation. United States Government: First Family- President Jacob Estline-Reaper Six First Lady Caroline Estline- Son Daughter Secret Service- Carol Estline's Principal Agent Son's Principal Agent Daughter's Principal Agent United States Military- Marine One Co-pilot Commander, Quantico Marine Base (Acting Theatre Commander in Cheif) Up to two members of each service (Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines) Vampires: Takeover Mastermind Up to nine other vampires Up to five civilians Again, if you feel a role should be added, just post and say who, and why they should be added, Most things will be negotiable. I will be controlling a number of NPCs to set up certain events in the IC. Vampire Homebrew (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Vampire Homebrew (open) Vampire Homebrew (close) Can walk in daytime, but the sun saps their physical capabilities from 2.5-3x to that of a normal human. Three ways to turn: -Bite and hold on for 10-15 seconds. -Victim drinking some of the vampires blood. -Getting sucked dry by one, victim loses all free will to the vampire. Vampires feel a stronger connection to their "sire" and even if they retain free will, will still be heavily influenced by them. Don't do that whole teleportation/shift to bats/fog thing. Can be killed by large amounts of conventional weaponry, stake to the heart, decapitation, severence of the spine. Can read minds/communicate telepathically with anyone in a 50-foot radius, longer if they are either emotionally close or share a blood bond. "Healthy" vampires feed twice a day, Regeneration is linked to the last time they fed. Drinking animal blood works for healing, but not as an alternative for human blood. And it will kill them eventually. Werewolf blood is an exception. Highly vulnerable to radiation.
