Marsana. It is generally a peaceful world. However, inside the large city of Sertana, it is a different story. Hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people live inside the gigantic city. Among those are vampires, hunting on the weak...or even the strong, if they are feeling like a struggle. On the other side, there are quite a few humans aware of the vampires, who watch their moves as best as they can, striking when they find a vampire...no matter who else is targeted in the process. Unfortunately, it is not enough, with the vampires outnumbering those aware of them by tenfold. However, there is a new target for the humans and vampires alike to keep an eye on, a dhampir, the only one of her kind.
This dhampir is caught between two worlds, that of the dark vampires, and the just as dark humans. Each side wants her. If the humans get her into custody, she is the perfect bargaining chip to force the vampires to follow their rules. However, if the vampires get her, they can finish off the human side of her, gaining a truly powerful vampire. Each side has reason to find her, but only one side needs her alive.
This RP will not be a good vs. evil type of story. Neither side is truly right or totally wrong. The main goal for each side of the story is to find the dhampir and either get her to safety, or kill her. Doing the latter will result in her turning into a full vampire. If this happens, however, there is the possibility of another dhampir springing up elsewhere.
The only limits in this RP will be those set by the players. Violence is guaranteed, and nonconsensual sex is quite possible.
The vampires are vulnerable to sunlight, fire, and decapitation, all of which are fatal, though the sunlight takes time to actually kill a vampire. Garlic hurts a vampire, but is not enough alone to kill it. Any other weapons will weaken a vampire, but heal quite rapidly, unlike garlic injuries.
The game setting will be a modern setting, but with a few fantasy elements. There are vampires, obviously, and werewolves may be introduced at a later point. As well, certain humans can learn supportive magic, to enhance their strength, agility, speed, or other attributes. However, there is no offensive magic, and the city and weaponry are only as advanced as what currently exists (swords, shotguns, etc.).
There is no real limit to the number of players, and while the dhampir is the central point of the story, it is not the only goal. I encourage players to be creative, and come up with story ideas. Even if the dhampir story finishes up quickly, don't write off the RP. The dhampir is a battle, not the war.
