Group: A Lord of the Nether Lands
Member No.: 46
Joined: 17-December 07
Some vampires decide to group together for safety, intermingling and breeding within these packs to eventually form clans. It takes several centuries for a clan to develop from a group of wild younglings into a tightly structured mini society, but once formed these clans are a force to be reckoned with, extremely powerful and extremely hard to destroy. Any vampire is able to join one of these clans, no matter what background they have come from. Each clan is ruled by a ‘Clan Lord’ to keep order. These are usually the most powerful or intelligent vampires within the clan, able to handle the pressure of maintaining peace and enforcing the rules. When a clan lord dies, a new lord is either chosen or fought for, and the cycle continues. PM a member of staff (me preferably) if you wish to form a new clan or take the place of a current clan Lord. Below is a list of the six current standing clans of the world.
Clan Lord: Raskar Von Rainclaw
Clan Base: Nether city, Italy
Description: Believed to be the oldest surviving vampire clan, the Riz’akar have stayed strong and united through the careful planning of everything they do, covering all assets and, when the time comes, crushing the opposition in one fell swoop. They have thousands of years’ experience on their side, coldly calculating and ruthless in their brutality. The Riz’akar value strength and cunning above all else.
Clan Lord: Olaf Viornsen
Clan Base: Holmestrand ruins, Norway
Description: The Inf’ari have long been a plague upon the humans of northern and central Europe. They are, or were, perhaps the most commonly known clan of nightwalkers among the mortals because of their less ‘subtle’ methods over the years. Their brutal occupation of the Romanian town of Transylvania is well documented by both vampires and humans, though the intervention of the senior clan members ensured no live witnesses were left to spread the story any further. They are known to be extremely vain, possessive, and partial to using cheap tricks to scare the mortals, playing with their food before finishing them off.
Clan Lord: Unknown
Clan Base: Shanghai ruins, China
Description: These vampires of Asian origin believe that magic, rather than muscle, is the way to win a war. They are highly intelligent and adept mages, particularly experienced in the ways of the mind and the shadow arts. Furthermore, they impose no limits on their ‘experiments’ on the humans, not thinking twice about torturing their subjects until the unfortunate’s heart bursts, in which case they will be healed and the process begun all over again. Needless to say, few mortals will survive such an ordeal with their sanity still intact.
Clan Lord: Owain Dreyrugr
Clan Base: Unknown
Description: Little is known of these nomadic vampires. Constantly on the move, they rely on their ability to simply vanish from their enemies to stay alive. Whether through magical or mundane means this is achieved, no one knows. A common myth exists that they are not really vampires at all, merely the ghosts of these creatures. This is yet to be proved, but unlikely. The Necrolus rarely engage in battle, but when they do it is swift, silent and deadly.
Clan Lord: Liam Croft
Clan Base: London ruins, England
Description: The youngest and smallest of all the clans, this group of inexperienced rogues are barely deserving of the name, despite how much they have fought to be accepted. They’re strength comes from their unique insight into how the modern world works, and that some old traditions are completely out of date in this century. Radicals and extremists all, they are well known by law enforcement agencies the world over.
Clan Lord: Sid
Clan Base: Abuja ruins, Nigeria
Description: These vampires are feared more than any wasteland creature in their native Africa. Their strict honour code dictates that once a hunt has commenced, the vampire shall never cease until either they or their enemy is dead. Unfortunately, their hunts rarely last long. They are masters of stealth, tracking and ambush tactics, able to lie dormant for months, sometimes years, waiting for their prey. Their poisoned weapons ensure that the target rarely gets far if an ambush is escaped, and their camouflage magic means you’ll never see them coming…
The Zerfall Zahne
Clan Lord: Dirk Eberhard
Clan Base: Plague Zone
Description: This is the newest clan, formed shortly before the zombie outbreak on Halloween. They were formed in the Plague Zone, where they had all been banished. Dirk started the clan, and every single one is a master of Disaga, warren of disease and poison, which they worship as the source of ultimate power. Their cult like religion centers around Sylviidae, the demon who they claim is the very essence of Disaga. They are a hard clan to join, as they have strict entrance standards and are difficult to reach without dying from disease. They rule the Plague Zone with an iron fist, but avoid conflicts with the Guard whenever possible. They are not a recognized clan right now, but strive to achieve the title officially.
