Okay, so it’s safe to say I’m having a bad day. And the only color I can see is red. I suppose I should follow that. Am I, I mean — Is that somebody talking to me ’cause if so, I can’t understand… Alright that’s a person. And they’re glowing. This is not good. Can I — Can I talk to that person, or is that a really bad idea? I’m gonna guess it’s a really bad idea. I’m just uh, not seeing — okay, it’s a woman. Hello? I know this person! Okay. Oh, no, that’s –. Oh, this is not going to go well, is it? Did they say “kill it”? Alright, they know what I am. God, there’s a — ow! Okay. Yes, but where? Is there a — ‘Kay, nope nope nope nope nope — oh! Just follow the path I guess? Yes! Just follow the path, of, whatever this is! Okay. Press to perform a melee att– Okay, I can defend myself. I just… Okay, can I jump? No. I, can I climb? Oh. Can I climb up there? No, I. I can’t actually can I break them? Oh I can break them. Okay. I can break them. All right! Okay, just Lock on enemies! Just hit him I guess? Yeah. Alright. I’m not seeing many alternatives. Oh, god. All right, is he What is he Okay, all right, there’s people in there I might — do I have any choices here? I have a feeling I do not Do I I saw, yeah I see someone over there, could I Can I get around? Can I climb? No. Did I see something? I thought I saw Alright, no, I guess Fine, I guess While locking on to, oh Alright, there’s two, there’s two, there’s two! He’s gonna He’s gonna fire — he’s! Okay, he’s firing, he’s firing Okay. Come on come on come on Oh I can’t All right, I’ve got stamina and I can’t dodge when I don’t have stamina, all right that’s good to know Although I’m a vampire. Why don’t I have stamina? Why am I breathing heavy — oh. Okay, so my, oh right my health is now down. Do I have any way of fixing that? Is there Yes, I’m looking for loot! I’m looking for loot. Alright, is that a flamethrower? That is a flamethrower! That is probably bad, right? Oh God. Can I–? He said find a place to hide. Okay, does that I think I’ve been spotted. Oh my god, that is a Oh! Oh. It’s a, okay! Hold to — oh it was a crossbow with bolts. Okay. All right, yeah, yeah, yeah So, I need to find a place to hide. Okay. That’s gonna be locked as well. So red red means locked! Sorta, if it’s the, if it’s the handle that’s, never mind. Alright. Okay. But, out of curiosity, if I’ve bitten Mary Doesn’t that kind of mean Okay, that can be opened. I mean Okay, we’ve got, we got stuff! I suppose I should actually check to see if I’m alone first of all. Oh ‘Kay… That is a very dead person. I-is that my watch then, or is it just a watch that was– Why am I — oh! I was dead, they threw me in a pit, I came back, I’m a vampire! Dude. Watch plus one. But, does, is that my watch? Oh, is that just another watch and it made me have a flashback? Alright, let’s start here. Fire and Sun, new collectible. Out of curiosity what does that…? Alright, okay, I can Right. So I’ve, I’ve got whatever that is, that’s a map. I’ve got a citizen menu. Men– oh my god. Citizen menu! I– You know, I mean, I know it’s a menu, but also considering what’s happening here, it’s You know, what’s on the menu tonight? I mean it’s a little Yeah Fire and Sun, a page probably stolen from some sort of manual or guide. Weaknesses of vampires. Leeches do not fear the sun or fire and they do not burst into flames or ashes when they are caught under the rays of daylight but it hurts them good, really good! I’ve personally chained a vampire to a tree to see what would happen when the sun rises Its skin blackened in a few minutes as if it was burning from the inside Its eyes and flesh melted and I saw it its unholy bones move and squeal as the beast tried to escape all day long. In the end, only a desiccated corpse remained, which started to slowly regenerate when the sun disappeared behind the horizon. I cut its head off to finally destroy it. And when I tried the same test with fire, the bloody leech never came back from the ashes. Fire is our weapon of choice, brothers. To burn the beast is the best way to kill it for good. From “Know your enemies” by Carl Eldritch, Priwen leader. So fire, fire is bad. Sun is bad. Having your head chopped off is worse ‘Kay, it’s just loot. It’s just loot! I say “just loot,” I didn’t mean that as any disrespect to loot, you know, I-I have all the respect in the world for loot Yes, I do Do we have Oh, do I have to get quite, I actually have to get quite close. I should really be a little more careful and make sure I’m Close enough to activate everything. Yes, I should. All hail the loot and all that. Bottle of alcohol! Not sure what use that is Can I drink alcohol? Can I remember where my inventory was? Okay, those are weapons, weapons and modules, samples and ingredients, ammunition Junk! Average resale value, this item could be recycled into components. How do I recycle? How do I recycle? Que– all right. Okay, we’ll figure that out at some future date, I guess. Recycling Right. This Why is this place barricaded like this? I mean, is, is, is the place under attack by vampires? I mean, some of the people hunting me obviously know Okay, obviously know what I am. Wait. So I do reflect? Okay, so I have lots that needs doing apparently. Good, good to have purpose. For right now my purpose Oh ‘Kay that man had a gun in his hand. Blew his brains out? So I now have a gun. So I’m a doctor, who doesn’t mind killing. Alright, I’ve got one I’ve got one bullet. Um… Let’s have a lo– ammu– No where was ammunition It says I’ve got no ammunition. I can carry up to about 18 and does this mean I’ve got No, I mean it looked like there was one round in Didn’t it? Okay. Was there anything else? Can I not take his watch? I’m on a sort of, watch, okay Blood diary! That’s a diary covered with blood stains, found in a sealed-off house. 15th of October. Bad sleep. Becky coughed all night, and the fever made her delirious. I heard a loud noise in the morning. It’s a big machine some men brought by the banks to dig a hole in the ground. It was some sort of mechanical shovel. Maybe I could go there, and ask for some work? Becky needs medicine. There’s a plague going on, right? I mean that’s, that’s, it’s not just vampires. There is a plague going on. 16th of October. I talked to the men with the mechanical shovel. They told me that they’re digging mass graves all around London. Safety measures apparently. Is there a new epidemic? Is the flu coming back? They had no work for me. Becky slept a little last night. The foundry has been closed, and there are no more jobs nearby. 19th of October. I went to London to find some groceries, and drugs. No trains. It took me a whole day to cross the Thames and come back. Becky seems better. I made a soup she ate. I found no drugs, only a few syringes, and some sleeping pills on the black market. We’ve no money left. Maybe I could go to the Pembroke Hospital tomorrow? But it’s so far, and I fear leaving my wife for so long. 19th of October. Becky threw up the meal a few hours after she ate. She’s so frail now it makes me cry. She says she hears voices outside at night. She says she wants to eat meat. Where would I find meat? Tomorrow, I’ll barricade the house to protect us from looters. 21st of October. The men with a mechanical shovel have stopped digging the mass grave. I heard shouts last night, as if they were attacked. Now, there are only a few boats throwing bodies day and night into the giant hole. The smell is terrible. We should have left this house a week ago, but Becky… She refuses to leave. She’d rather die, she said with a nasty smile. Why is she torturing me so? 22nd of October. Becky just attacked me! She jumped on me from the stairs, and tried to bite me. I had to smack her, but she smacked me back. I went upstairs and locked myself in the bedroom. Now I can hear her crying and mumbling downstairs. I retrieved the gun and I hidden the ceiling since the war to protect the house. Now, I’m ready to use it to protect myself from my own wife. She turned into a vampire then. 23rd of October. I could not sleep at all. Becky spent the whole night scratching at the door, asking for my help, begging me to let her in, but I was too afraid to open it. I’m just waiting for her to die now. It would not be long. I pray God it will end soon 24th of October. I was so hungry. I tried to go downstairs this morning. Becky was sitting in the armchair by the chimney. She was panting like a dog, looking at me without moving, just following me around the room with her eyes. I pointed the gun at her sore face but she did not react. I could not pull the trigger. I went back to my room. 25th of October. The house is silent like a tomb. No more noises. Becky is dead now. Forgive me, my love. I was unable to save you. I’ll be with you soon enough. Okay. So she It sounds like she was infected via vampire? Was there some letters there? Is that is that just a side effect of the plague? They go mad, as well. Are the two connected? Possibly. I think I’ve got everything I need. Which is everything I can take. She does look pretty bad. So. Can’t take the hammer. Oh. Um… How, precisely, do you want me to do that? Do I need to go to sleep or something? Can I use the bed? I can! I can use the bed which has a feather. Is that, because there’s a feather pillow or Kind of looks like on a right on the bed, doesn’t it? Was there anything else? No. Okay and I have to be that side. What sort of nightmare do you have where you go to sleep in it? Oh ‘Kay, am I gonna– but I have no bullets! I have no bullets, how There was one bullet in that gun, there was! Shoot? Do I have a choice? Do I have a choice? Can I, can I– Is this gonna be a case of, I’m literally playing chicken with myself here– Fine! So now I’ve got no bullets! Whoa! Okay! Hideout beds allow you to evolve and rest. Spend experience points to level up and improve your vampiric skills. Okay. Oh. Alright then, so I’ve What is, right 1735 experience, that’s, is that level 1. Passive skills. Body condition: plus 50 health. Physical prowess: plus 15 percent endurance! Increase your stamina. So I don’t run out of breath every like, 10 feet. Blood capacity: increase your blood capacity. Increase your blood absorption. Science! You can now carry three serums on you. Increase the number of bullets you can carry. Yeah, so this Ultimate? Rage: you lose control and let the Beast take over for a short time. The Beast teleports itself to all enemies around you, and strikes them with furious blows. Alright! Cost none, recovery 99 whatever that means. Level 10 required. Shadow: You create a shadow vortex at your target’s feet. Coming to life, the Shadows interrupt an enemy in the area and inflict tremendous damage. Okay. Begin by selecting the available skill: autophagy. It’s the only thing I can select. You drain your own blood to heal normal and aggravated damage instantly. Oh. And that unlocks another tree! Select the first level of autophagy and spend enough XP to unlock it. You drain your own blood to heal normal and aggravated damage instantly, and that requires what, 600 XP and I’ve got 1,700 and Alright. The vampire uses the power of his blood to heal normal, and aggravated damage, increasing his flesh, nerve, and bone regeneration. With time, this vampiric ability can be extremely powerful, and is sure to surprise any unwary Vampire Hunter. We think of vampires is immortal, but if you can block their own natural regenerative, –regenerative capabilities, they’re more vulnerable than you think. Oh. Oh! I have to, right. Oh! Okay, that’s kind of cool. You drain your own blood to heal normal and aggravated damage, this is more healing, but it requires level six. I am level two. You’ve leveled up and feel stronger, go back. Ah! This has now unlocked some other things You have enough XP to unlock an aggressive skill. Choose one to unlock now. Claws: a close-range strike that will cut through all living creatures in front of you. Interesting. Bloodspear: you throw a spear made of blood which can pass through enemies in front of you. That could be useful as a Shadow mist: place a cloud of shadows at the targets feet, or yours. The cloud will explode after a short time causing heavy damage. It sounds kind of cool. So that’s like a claw damage. That’s Wait what bloodspear– this, oh this requires My blood, 25 blood, this requires 25 blood area 2 meters. I don’t know if this is the right thing to do, but I’m going to select shadow mist. I think. Alright, place it, yes, and we can up– the vampire concentrates shadows around the prey to make them explode after a countdown. The explosion will injure anything in range with needle-like living spears. Vampires often use this ability to wipe out groups of enemies from a distance. They think they can challenge us with their tools, but no one can defeat the shadows. So I can actually just look at all of them. In more depth. Natural predators, vampires have received some gifts from Mother Nature, like claws instead of fingernails These supernatural weapons can easily cut through tissue, and are very useful for piercing appraised arteries. If you use your claws, you will see humans differently… like soft, tender meat. Okay. And blood spit. Okay. That does look kind of cool. The vampire wields their blood and throws it like a spear. This power can take time to charge, but it’s deadly effective at medium to long range It’s a powerful supernatural tool for vampires who don’t like close combat If you cannot avoid the bloodsuckers attack, just keep your mouth closed. Oh, ew, ew, is that what you said, ‘Cause you’re saying you don’t want what– you know what I don’t even want to, I don’t even wanna think about that one. Oh, well, then which one then? Which? One? Vampire concentrates [inaudible] Honestly, although my initial thought was shadow mist I just. I like the look of that! I do, I like the look of that. Okay. So now I’m level three and I have Now select confirm to save your choices. Oh, so I could, could I undo it? Can I undo it? No? I don’t think I can, no, all right. So once it’s selected, it’s selected. I’ve got to then confirm But it’s nighttime. So now I can Okay, so I need to find my Maker. Reach North Bank. Right. Okay. Now, now, Let’s have a look. I now have I still have my weapon, but I don’t have any bullets for that, which is going to make this very useful. One, and two. Oh, can I? This is two, alright! So I can select which is which Autophagy: you drain your own blood to heal normal and aggravated dama– oh wait, so. Oh, I’ve already healed though. By the looks of things. So sleeping heals aggravated damage. I need to get blood to be able to use autophagy or the spear and… What else? Okay, that is Ooh! I can, I can sense blood, and I can sense Somebody is alive down there. Alright then. So if somebody is alive down there, I’m walking here and then I run there. Okay. I should be somewhat care– Oh, they’re banging on, they’re trying to get in here, okay, so I have got to leave and Conduct research on my new condition. Identify and confront the vampire who created me. Night is here again. I am in London now. Somewhere near the East End Docks, I suppose. I don’t know this part of town. All I know is this: someone is killing people, here. Murdering them. Butchering them. Drinking their blood. Making them like him? Is this what happened to me? Well, obviously. My poor Mary. My poor sister. I must follow the blood trail. Find answers. Maybe I should start by gathering information about what happened to this place while I was away. Then, I will find out who did this to me. Who made me what I am now. Reach the North Bank. So I’ve got to follow the blood trail… Okay some All right. Yeah! I know, I know.
