No no no.

There are many stories of the living dead killing their family as one of the first things they do. If you care about your family at all, I would suggest against going to their home. Meeting a family member elsewhere would at worst get two people killed, so if you really need to see someone, try to approach them alone.

Unless you think your family's a bunch of pricks and don't mind killing them all during a glorious rise to power, I mean. Familial flesh is usually a good source of invigoration, according to the tales.

I need to pull myself together.
Obviously there has been some kind of mistake. I was just wounded and they buried me thinking I was dead. Yeah that's it. I have to sort this out.

Actually, I think I know where this is. It's the old family tomb. I haven't been here since... mother.

No, I've read that if a person is sick their pulse can go so low that someone might mistake them for dead.

Huh? V-word?

Are you crazy? I'm not dead.
And I have no intention of hurting my family, even if my brothers are jerks sometimes.

So, voices in my head, what do you want to know?

My father is Bartholomeus Szekely, the baron of these lands. He's a... great man.
I have two brothers, Dederich and Jal, and a sister, Rose.
Our mother is... no longer with us.

And apparently they buried me.
Any ideas on what I should do?

I hadn't thought of that.
Well, Dederich would be next in line to be baron I guess. I can't imagine him wanting me dead, though. And even if he did he wouldn't stoop to hiring thugs.


He's always been ambitious though.

Yeah I guess I don't have a choice. These sort of stick out. Actually they'd pass for formal attire, if I had a coat or a jacket. Maybe a cloak.

Let's see... There's a woodcutters hut nearby, and there's my family's hunting lodge a bit further. Or I could just go straight to town. What do you think?

I'd go with the hunting lodge, unless it's occupied. If that's the case, head to the woodcutter's hut.

Between here and your destination, try to find a puddle, a mirror, or anything decently reflective. You know, to check for any sort of facial damage.

A mirror? Well, there's nothing like that along the way but I think there's a mirror in the lodge.

*checks pockets*
I have nothing like that on me.
No. 27549 ID: fdc826


Well then, head for the lodge.

Try to avoid any popular roads, so nobody spots you. If you have to, just stay a good 20 feet in the woods, and try to be inconspicuous.

By the way, this particular voice in your head hasn't slept in a while, so try to get another voice's input if I say something particularly moronic.

And uhh, I'll try not to listen too much to you then.
(If I ever tell anyone about this, I'd be in madhouse.)

So, we're here.
The stables are on the other side. There's also a small toolshed next to the stables.


I don't think I have the key. How do I get in?

You know, that's a good point.

Rafail, try to focus here. Even as a vampire, those guys might be able to wound, or even kill you if they get their hands on a few weapons. Grab that axe, and observe the two bastards through the window. If you think you can take 'em, then, by all means, do so. If not, try to sneak away quietly.

Why did you kill her you monster. God will punish you, god will make you suffer for your sins. This is your penance, you will hear her laments forever. Murderer.

He will tell you that when you're playing with his intestines. All in good time. Oh, rip off her head while you're at it. Do we really want her to wake up like we did? In fact I hope you did the same to the one who's arm we took. Wouldn't want to meet him looking for his appendage. Awkward.

Oh sorry, it's just how these things are usually laid out. Lots of hovels and taverns for the proletariat on the outskirts of town.

Of course he will, it will be just as easy for our enemies to scare him to cooperate as it was for us. But lacking a subject devoted to us out of adoration and loyalty it will have to do.

Ah, the family.
Here's a picture.

On the left there is Dederich. He's the second oldest. The favorite son. He's the captain of the guard nowadays. Must make father so proud. Bah.
He's a barely literate idiot who just swings swords around all day. But hey, someone has to fulfill expectations.

On the right is Jal. He's not quite as bad as Dederich, but, well... he is a little too much into his cups. And women.
Oh all right, he's a lecherous drunkard. He's not too discriminate either.

That's father, in the center. Bartholomeus Szekely. I never did live up to his expectations, preferring books and quiet study to hunting and war and other "duties of men". He... well.

Right there near the bottom is Rose. She's six now.

We might need some eyes for daytime. He fits the bill. If he proves loyal we can give him power eventually but now his worth lies in his mortality. If only he could keep his big gob shut and stay smart.
