Calling them "vampires" is a bit of a stretch.

They sport fangs and they drink blood. What more do they need to be considered vampires?

All the other stuff, like being undead and dying in the sunlight.

So they're just people who dress oddly and have a blood fetish.

It's not a fetish. They don't drink blood for the fun of it. They need it to feel normal and healthy both physically and mentally. Perhaps it might be discovered later on that they suffer from some sort of genetic disorder.

If it isn't purely a mental issue, it is some sort of vitamin or mineral deficiency which could be easily addressed via more conventional means.

Possible though I can't help thinking that these communities have doctors with accredited medical degrees and they must have done all the blood analysis to figure out the root cause of their condition. It could be a still unknown factor in the blood. I've read that human blood protein is pretty hard to process for the liver. What if the liver of these people can process blood more readily without any ill effects and breaks it down into nutrients that are missing in their body?

I have no idea why you would think that. Especially given that you seem to think that most doctors are idiots.

Well, that's only coz I was afflicted with maladies that these doctors can do nothing about. I personally can't accept half-baked treatments. Doesn't mean doctors have no use. I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who are alive because of doctors. Just my misfortune I guess that doctors can't fix my health issues and those of others like me. There are some who admit the limitations of their knowledge and say it so. There are others who pretend like they wrote the definitive bible on the human body. It is the latter that piss me off. These idiots do more harm than good.

Anyway, if I were a vampire AND a doctor, I would have a vested interest in figuring out what's wrong with me and others like me. That's what I meant.

Maybe you could try art? Artists take drugs all the time to produce strange and unique thoughts but they flow from you effortlessly. Capitalize on that if you can.

But the Vikings would be in control so maybe not as fun, unless you were a rogue solo dragon (see what I did there? Rogue (squadron) and (Han) Solo and Dragon (capsule) ) :lol:

Unless Cybert also moved to the UAE, no, I'm not him and I wouldn't dream of insulting or disrespecting Damage. So many awesome things came from him, the least of which is TR.

He's referring to Cybert trolling Damage in the SBR and getting banned (by Damage) as a result.

IIRC actually dared Damage to ban "a major contributor" to the site, or somesuch. Damage called his bluff.

Must have been drunk when he did that. Probably broke his heart when Damage showed him that nothing gets in the way of principles.
