Forever anchored to their coffins and the unholy earth of their graves, vampires are nocturnal predators who scheme constantly to strengthen themselves and fill the world with their foul progeny. Vampires appear just as they did in life, although their features are often hardened and feral with the predatory look of wolves.

(Note: Upon taking the first level of this class, the character is considered to be a fledgling Vampire. As they take additional levels, they become stronger until finally becoming a true Vampire at either level 7 or 10 depending on vampire path chosen. Because of this, all of the potential “negatives” of the race are received immediately at 1st level, while the advantages are gained over the course of the class. This is considered an advanced class for players experienced in Sigil’s mechanics.)

Vampires select from one of three paths: Via Lupus, Via Draco, and Via Maleficus. All three paths will have the following abilities, while path-specific abilities are listed below.

Level Adjustment: taking this template class adds a +3 level adjustment to the character it is added to.(Important note: this means when adding vampire to a race which already has a level adjustment, those will stack; as an example, a Drow vampire will have a total level adjustment of +5)

Touch of Evil: Upon taking the first level of this class, the newly made Vampire shifts its alignment towards evil. A good character will become neutral, while a neutral character will become evil. Its position on the Law/Chaos axis will not change.

Undead Racial Type: Upon taking the first level of this class, the character’s racial type changes to Undead. He is subject to turning, is harmed by healing spells, and healed by negative energy. He is now also subject to anything which causes extra damage vs. undead. He does, however, retain all racial bonuses and abilities from his original race. (Note: You will lose your previous racial favored class for purposes of multi-classing.)

Darkvision: Vampires can see in the dark up to 60 feet.

Undead Properties: At 1st level, a Vampire becomes immune to sleep, mind-affecting, charm, death, and energy drain effects. At 5th level, immunity to ability damage, poisons, diseases, and paralysis is gained. At the last level, 10th or 7th respectively, the Vampire gains immunity to critical hits and sneak attacks.

Natural Armor: A Vampire gains a bonus to natural armor of +1 (stacking) for Lupus and Maleficus, or +2 (Stacking) for Draco at 1st level. This bonus increases by +1 (non-stacking) at every even-numbered level.

Vampire Slam: Vampires gain a slam attack. If it hits, it does bludgeoning damage based on size, as well as bestowing 1 negative level on the creature struck and granting the Vampire 5 temporary hit points which last for up to one hour. This ability has a 60-second cooldown.
