I've been seeing more people lately that use that system. In the beginning it was a good idea, for a long time the vampire community has lacked something to add to the roleplay other than a combat system.

When Mars first told me about it, a lot of us agreed that it would be a good idea. It started out that blood would be like currency, which in a way, it still is, since you can trade blood casks. There was a way to keep track of your clan, and who you bit through their site, which was also a plus. So, we got the system, granted, it wasn't long before we were way behind in status, since there were only a few of us, but it was fun, for a little while. Then came the needing to bite someone to survive. Ok, but the problem is, once you are bitten, you only have a limited supply of blood.

That's where it all went horribly wrong. Normal people don't have thousands of lindens floating around to spend on a necklace to stop the need for biting. After a few days, there were people using alts, and biting random people just to get ahead in the game.

Today, I have seen people coming into a newbie friendly place, The Shelter, and try to bite people. Some of them were only a couple of days old. Now, what this tells me, is there are people preying on the newbies when they join sl, and having them get this abomination to be a so-called vampire. At the very least, they should be tought to im and ask before biting.

For anyone who wants to remove themselves from Bloodlines and no longer be bitten, there will be a garlic necklace at the library, just wear it once and click it. I urge whoever is reading this, pick one of these up, and if you have a club, or store, or even a place where your friends hang out, please, ban these "Spampires" Unless we start showing them they cannot feed on whoever they want, they will become, nay, already are, a plague.

Sorry for the rant, but I had to say something :P

I'm ranting all the time about, though some of it is the silent type :p
