The Nightstalkers, or Proto-Vampires - Aetolia Online Help

8.9.1 The Nightstalkers, or Proto-Vampires

Before the true Vampires were perfected by Yrtez, many lesser creatures 
were created using an artifact of considerable power. Known as          
Proto-Vampires to some, or Nightstalkers to the mortals who feared them,
these young creatures possessed only limited skills in Corpus and       
Mentis.                                                                 

With the artifact rediscovered and in the hands of Kelende, those level 
5 or higher may embark on the first steps towards the bloodgift by      
seeking her out.                                                        

Those also who wish to abandon their ties to one of the two bloodgifts  
can do so, and revert to this lesser form. It should be noted that      
learning Corpus or Mentis is extremely limited while in this form.      

It should be noted that those who wish to be Nightstalkers will         
eventually have people who wish to sire them. Siring is a permanent     
decision, and should not be made lightly. There is no reason that one   
must be a Sire until you are fully embraced.                            

ASK KELENDE BECOME NIGHTSTALKER
   - Become one of the Proto-Vampires.

ASK KELENDE JOIN BLOODBORN
   - Join the guild of the Bloodborn. If you are already a Nightstalker
     when you do this, it will switch your class to that of Bloodborn.

FORSAKE BLOODGIFT
   - Give up Sanguis or Hematurgy to become one of the Proto-Vampires.

QUIT CLASS
   - Provided you haven't been previously embraced (embracement grants
     Hematurgy or Sanguis), this will allow you stop being a
     Nightstalker.
