A dull thud on the doorstep in the early morning announces the newspaper delivery automaton making his rounds. Its reed-and-brass voice box calls out in the pre-dawn silence, echoing down the cobblestone streets. “Wake up to the News in the Times! Advertisements and Entertainment, too!”
In human mythology, vampires are creatures who feed on the life essence of others, generally by consuming living blood. Vampiric entities have been recorded in many cultures, and known by different names, such as vrykolakas in Greece and strigoi in Romania.
In the Neo’Verse, they have a place in the Sidhe Empire and they can hold great power. There are three kinds:
the children of Hel (those born-to-the-blood),
the twice-born (those made by her children,
and the draugr (ghoulish monsters).
