The Type of Vampire Ranks
There are several types of ranks within this city of vampires. Ancients, High Elders, Elders, Fully Powered, Young Ones, and Babes.
Each have a different ideal of what is important to them, each different depending on who raised them. We will talk about each so you have a better understand of what makes one what they are.
It should be noted, that just because you fall into one of these groups, does not mean you are just as it says. Fact be told you could be far more, then what is written here. It is all depended on many factors. That can't all be listed.
The Ancients are those who have been in the city near the start of it‘s birth. *Meaning they’re 4+ Years old* They have seen how the city has changed, and tend to have a great deal of information. Most Ancients tend to belong to great families and strong clans, perhaps even being the leader of those clans. They know what has worked in the past, and has seen time and again what hasn’t.
They may be set in their ways, believing that clans come first and families second but never doubting their care for their families. Some may not even know their families. They may even have tons of childer under their bloodlines as well.
Be careful around Ancients, as they know the strength is having their powers, and know the best ways to hurt those in this city. Also do not be fooled by their low blood levels *if they are indeed low* as this simply means they have no problem joining in a fight and most likely enjoy it. *go here for more information on warriors and blood holders*
High Elders are the mix breed of Ancients and Elders. They have been in the city for some time *3+ years* and came slightly before the Elders of today. They tend to follow a slightly more Ancient feeling about things. Knowing that some things are better solved by not fighting. However they tend to be quick to the battle field if they lose their tempter or see no other choice.
Like the Ancients, High Elders come with having a lot of blood and having none, they too enjoy a great deal of fighting and have seen many of the same things that the Ancients have though in many cases did not join in such things. High Elders, tend to ask questions and are willing to hear things out instead of just attacking. *Not saying that Ancients do not do this either* They also tend to understand that when the city is at war, that they can be in most cases simple bystanders in this war and have on many nights been such things. They have grown used to such things, and are able to shift into the change that are the Elders.
Elders are vampires who disagree with Ancients and High Elders as well as there ways. They have been in the city more or less for time but has not seen any great wars. *They’ve been in the game 2+ years* They have seen small wars, and in most cases taken part in these smaller wars, but tend to prefer to talk their way out of fighting then actually fighting *in other words prefer to just roleplay the battle instead of taken it into the city.*
They tend to believe that peace is better choice. They have knowledge of the city, and how to get the powers, but sometimes it is hard to tell just if they know how to use that knowledge. They almost seem to be mainly talk and no action. They do fight however, when they have no other choice.
Fully Powered Vampires tend to be slightly new to the city but have gotten used to their new unlifes. *Normally being about 1+ years old* They have seen most likely no wars but some duels and small fights. They may even run their own clans, that in most cases hold no power within the city and most High Elders and Ancients do not even know the names of these clans.
They’re vampires may even be unknown, and this tends to bug them. Like the Young Ones and Babes, they seek power, however unlike the Young Ones and Babes, they do tend to have some skills in fighting. Understanding that the first step to being seen, and perhaps even heard in this city is to have those powers and weapons to back up even some of what they may say.
Young Ones have been in the city for a few months *Normally about 6+ months* they have knowledge, and in most cases even powers. However they are more worried about making a name for themselves they do not see the point of having powers perhaps and in many cases give up. *Most Young Ones should have 14+ Powers* Not seeing the larger picture. They do care about their name and way of life and perhaps are not willing to give it up just yet. *They tend to care more about roleplaying then building their powers* and can sometimes like the Elders, and Fully Powered vampires, hate those who push them into getting more powers.
Babes are those who are basically new to the city. They tend to need a lot of care, getting started *less then 6 months old in the game* and have very few powers. *zero to 13 powers normally* Though some babes are sometimes a year old and older, they have lost the larger picture of the city and care to only live their own unlifes *basically care only about roleplaying* If not taken in by Ancients and High Elders, they seem to have no chance of growing stronger, and perhaps even fade from the city itself being nothing but walking spirits *their vampire dies ingame from lack of play*[/ul]
