Twilight Vampire Edit

This is a Character Class for Step into the Gloom - Nightwatch (3.5e Sourcebook)

This class is NOT suggested for Non-Night Watch campaigns, due to it's powerful abilities.

Often seen as the weakest of the Dark Others due to their lack of Magical Prowess, Vampires possess powerful abilities that can rival that of any Combat Magician. Where other characters intrude upon the Twilight, the Vampire is a welcome part of it. He can stay in the Twilight Longer, and go deeper into it, than any other class. You may surprise the other Characters in your party when you sink down to the Seventh Level of the Twilight while they're still struggling with the Fourth.

Making a Twilight VampireEdit

Vampires are the undisputed masters of the Twilight, and their abilities show this. Some Vampires focus entirely on their mastery of the Twilight, while others are happy with their natural abilities, and devote their training into other pursuits.

Abilities: Constitution, Wisdom, and Charisma are important to the Vampire, as Constitution boosts their hit points and even more resistance to the Twilight. Wisdom allows them to stay in the Twilight longer, and to resist mind affecting spells, and Charisma powers their Spells and Class abilities.
