I still like the folklore that werewolves were the good guys who protected the village from the vampires: I’m not into all this growly bitey dangerous werewolfness.

I suppose there has to be some downside to being a werewolf or the entire village, and ultimately world would be queueing up to be safe from the vampires, and there wouldn’t just be stories about it.

Most of the folklore that had werewolves as benevolent protectors also had being a werewolf as purely genetic or divinely ordained by God, not the easily transmitted version of today.

Which actually, fun fact, the bite people to turn them into werewolves thing has no folkloric basis, that was literally invented by the movie “The Wolfman” in the 1920s.

Funny, I remember watching a TV episode (don’t remember the series, you may assume it was named “Cryptic Horror Tales” or something to that effect) where a Siberian hamlet housed a couple vampires to defend them against the (normal) wolves during the long, cold, dark winters …

Umh. *Wee* difference in *my* neck of the woods …

… I take it that you haven’t watched anything from the Underworld series yet? :-3

(Tacking “get well” wishes on here so as to not forget again …)

Both dangerous and cuddly it looks super good! About what a vrykolakas would look like, I think. Get well soon!

Question if you need a question: How does the legal community handle legal disputes? Does each Avalon run by a common law system of rules unique to the magical community or do they adhere to their human nation’s legal system? Ex: If there was a break in and vandalism at the Drunken Satyr, how is it investigated? What legal remedy do the owners have? Can it be insured?

I have a followup question on critter research. When scripting, how do you choose what creatures to go with? Do you find yourself usually having an idea beforehand, or having to dig around to find something that fits a scenario?

I think if a werewolf bit a vampire, there’d be no difference cuz vamps can already transform into wolves as well as bats… But a normal, fully alive vampire BAT bitten by a werewolf? ok, yeah that guy is totally a beast o.o related to one of those bat griffons from earlier?
