Author Topic: RPG/physics question about undead vampires and their reaction to deep water  (Read 473 times)

  • Guest

I've been compiling some game rules for vampires in my paper and dice rpg using Vampire (Dark Ages and VTM, oWoD), and something popped up that has me puzzled. I have Blood Dimmed Tides here, and they have something called PIVD or depth sweat. I already know that the bends are pretty much impossible for a vampire, and hypothermia is nonsense for them as they couldn't freeze solid whilst underwater, so I've thrown those rules out.

Since vampires in the game system have no problem with running water, they don't breathe and they don't have an active circulation system, what would happen if they went into very deep water (hundreds or even thousands of meters down)? I figure it's basically the same thing that would happen to a dead human body if brought that deep. Does water displace a dead body's blood if its that deep?

This question is the reason why I joined this forum, so please forgive me if I posted it in the wrong place. I don't know a darned thing about this website.

Depends what kind of vampire you're going to stick down there.
What you said about dead bodies would probably happen to it.

Use a another type of vampire and you would get different results
