Eh, the site has changed a lot since the days we were a direct offshoot of 4chan. The remnants of the good old Internet Hate Machine are basically gone, I don’t think your politics are considered especially objectionable.

oh, i mean, it’s not like i find the site hostile or anything, or i wouldn’t still be here. i like it here. it’s more that like, people who find my stuff through twitter and tumblr already know what i’m about and have already signed up for it; people who have been here for a long time and know what i’m about and aren’t into it just avoid my stuff, which is fine; but someone who finds my stuff through a third party and then tries to go straight to my social media might find themselves unpleasantly surprised depending on where they stand bc i’m pretty abrasive about it, which again, is fine, but a heads up might spare all parties some awkwardness.

and it’s good to leave a paperdoll update like the one in tvrn up for a while so this works out. i’m gonna take two weeks off bc i have a lot of handmade gifts to work on and also frankly i haven’t played a video game in months and i’ve got about five different series that my friends have been punching me in the head about watching and — well, i’ve only been making media instead of consuming media and i think to be a good artist you have to do both. plus i’m taking the wife up to my hometown for a week to spend xmas with my family and i can’t draw vampires giving each other road head around my folks

so yeah i’m gonna dip for a while to make candy and dress up a slutty catboy in ffxiv. sorry for takin another break so soon when i just took one for halloween! the good news is one of my art resolutions is to Find Balance so uhhh, yknow how tvrn updates like three times a week and acid soup updates once every two months. i’m gonna try to even that out when i get back

anyway happy holidays. my body is rotting

oh one more thing. if you like tvrn you should really really read this fic that my dear friend wrote, abt what would happen if pascal killed ricardo instead of turning him (and ricardo was no less angry about it) https://archiveofourown.org/works/17045138?view_adult=true

it’s got ghost sex. and it’s got pascal characterization so good that i feel like my friend was crawling around inside my brain sneakily rifling through all my secret tvrn documents

sorry that this is blurry and 25% finished but — i’m FINALLY watching FMAB, which everyone i know has been hounding me to do for years because they all knew i’d go wild for the villains, and as predicted, i have been wilding the fuck out. (i’m still only on episode 30ish so please don’t say anything that would constitute spoilers past the reveal of pride!)

last night while watching i was doing idle doodles, so here’s a bunch of character design spoilers lol. bathorys would all be homunculi, but rather than an existing one, pascal would be the eighth deadly sin which is now obsolete: despair, which by some records was the only mortal sin to be considered completely unforgivable.

also haha im an asshole and ive been forgetting to crosspost quest inbox answers again. for a few months. heres another textwall

>ira....... when teddy.....
when teddy indeed

>Ira I’m a weed scientist and it’s doesn’t effect your cardiovascular system (no blood needed) so can Pascal smoke, weed. Does minmin own a goofy bong,,
vampires in fact can smoke weed. pascal has in the past but it’s hard for him to get it now because nobody will talk to him. minmin, surprisingly, does not partake

>do the vampires in tvrn ever indulge in Human Foods other than alcohol? if so whats the favorite human foods of the mains
if vampires indulge in solid food they will projectile vomit up all of the blood they’ve consumed in the past few weeks a la WWDITS. this is one of the reasons all vampires do is drink. the other reason is they, as a culture, have no coping mechanisms

>what about jello .......... or pudding ........
Risky

>Jello shots?
RISKY

>this answer is so upsetting. thank you
you’re so welcome

>tvrn question! what are minmin and bunji's favorite pokemon? (i would love to know the rest of tvrn's casts faves but i would be surprised if pascal knows what a pokemon is)
bunji doesn’t know what pokémon is even tho minmin has tried to explain it to him. minmin’s favorite changes every day but he keeps coming back to mew and skitty. ricardo kind of knows what pokemon is bc of the kids from his apartment complex who always climbed all over him when he was growing up and if you asked him what his favorite pokémon was he would hesistantly mispronounce pikachu

>are babenburg and the marquess, yknow,
i was goign to answer this in a jokey shitheaded way but actually i’m just staring at my phone feeling genuinely emotional that someone has read my shit attentively enough to have picked up on a detail this small and this briefly alluded to

>is dracula sexy
would i make him unsexy. why would you even ask me this. you should be ashamed of yourself

>do vampires need to drink water? can they die of alcohol poisoning? if you cut open a vampire that hasn't fed in weeks would their insides be totally dry? i came for porn and stayed to ask about annoying semantics
1. no 2. no but they can have an EXTREMELY unpleasant weekend 3. depends how old they are. younger vampires suffer starvation effects sooner 4. good because i set out to make porn and ended up neck deep in worldbuilding so we’re on the same page here

>What happens to blood solids? Like if you remove all the water from blood you get solid remainder, like with ice cream or something. You said vampires don't poop so do they like... Shed blood? Process it in its entirety with no waste?
to be one thousand percent honest i don’t think abt things down to this mechanical level bc it’s not interesting to me fjdkfjf so we’ll just say they process it entirely

>sorry if you've been asked before but what has inspired your art/storytelling the most, either currently or when you were younger? and sort of related but what attracted you to the quest format?
when i was younger definitely like....... courage the cowardly dog. and shoujo manga. now i’m inspired by all the stuff that i want to see done that doesn’t really exist, or exists but that i think i can do better. what attracted me to the quest format is i love attention

>What's everyone's karaoke song?
you only get minmin’s because i was literally thinking about this while walking home https://open.spotify.com/track/6H4Pxh91zUEbGWvRTUFcSW?si=j8pSyh3URsCO7QUgKLvJiQ (anri’s ‘last summer whisper’ except this lofi soundcloud shit version is definitely what he’d sing)

>Can lamb shift into a sheep
nope (her affinity is not shifting and for her One Slot she picked the bat like a normal person) but even if she could she would not

>How often does lamb get asked whether her shift is to a sheep?
actually never bc she only (reluctantly) hangs out with her covenmates, who all know the origin of her name + her affinity

>does surfing count as crossing running water. the bay squad needs your answer
a vampire can be on a surfboard for a while but this is a scenario that can only end in tragedy

>Lickbutt's one night only concert
the quest was so damn short that this might as well just be an alternate title

>How do wells factor into the crossing running water thing? Does it count as man made, or? Basically if a vampire is dunked in a well will they float
since a well is generally just tapping into an aquifer, the well itself is manmade but the water counts as a natural source, so a vampire who gets tossed in a well is gonna have an extremely bad time

>So like you said that vamps that fall into water really wanna get out of it right? So like are they fine if they find a shore and walk out or do they pretty much just die?
they want to but generally the pain is incapacitating. if they COULD walk their way out, they’d be okay, but they probably can’t even manage that

>augh i forget if you already talked abt this or not; can/do vampires feed from animals instead of humans
pascal mentions this SUPER briefly, like one offhand line — they technically could but they consider it absolutely disgusting. it would be like. the equivalent of eating banana peels for us. could u live on banana peels.......... i mean technically MAYBE. you’d definitely get sick tho. see now i’m really wondering about that

>interesting cos i assume that means vampires w/ an affinity for shifting steer clear of, like, fish. or dolphins or whatever. just picturing a vampire-shark just fuckin flopping around in the sea in agony
oh yeah no fuckin fish. no can do

>what does minmin do in the rare occasion that he breaks a nail
you would expect him to freak out but he’s actually been through it enough that he generally doesn’t bat an eyelid. the problem is that there are only three people on the planet earth that he trusts to touch his nails and he travels constantly so he refuses to touch anything with that hand until he can sync up his schedule with the closest person which can sometimes take like a week or two. bunji already opens all his containers and stuff for him tho so i guess that’s not actually that different than normal

>Has Pascal ever been to a concert, can Ricardo play call me maybe on the violin
pascal has been to Many concerts. ricardo can’t right now but he could learn

>with constantin, is the mark under his eye a mole and not a tattoo?
who knows! you’ll have to ask him! i want you to know my girlfriend was reading over my shoulder as i typed this and she quietly said “it’s the mark of the beast”

>pascal has that mark and he's not a beas— well, maybe in bed?
that’s spoilers

>Hey idk if you take requests, but during the training arc can there be a scene where Kel flexes so hard her shirt sleeves tear off and get shredded into nothing by her beautiful biceps
it’s not a request if it aligns seamlessly with my own desires

>When you say tvrn isn't a dating sim, does that mean riscal is the only endgame?
yep — well, KIND of, but the reason saying yes to that isn’t 100% accurate is spoilers — basically the most accurate thing i can say is there are other encounters you can have, but tvrn is a story about ricardo and pascal making it work.

>once a vampire drinks blood and it's in their system does it stay as warm as it is in a human's, or is it cold, as vampires are traditionally depicted
room temperature unless they’re being Active

>IRA im thinkin about tvrn ocs and i don't remember if you've already talked about this, but would a shifter choosing a form that's naturally venomous have any use in a fight or would it just be an edgy useless form
we didn’t end up getting into it in the minbun duel but: it’s useful bc it’s Vampire Venom. if pascal hadn’t severed his arm they would have ended up noticing that the bite was not healing or regenerating at all (the slow heal time is mentioned very briefly, and i was going to have the bite still remain on the severed arm looking nasty and necrotic but in the end having to badger minmin for an antidote in the aftermath would have overly bloated those conversations so i scrapped it).

>can a vampire have more than one affinity? if not, can a vampire dedicate themselves to study and foster a talent even if it doesn't come naturally to them?
most vampires can handle a little bit of overlap with practice and study. if they tried REALLY fucking hard, like hunter x hunter training arc dedicating their all to it and destroying their body for it, a vampire could learn to master an affinity they don’t have any predisposition for as if it were their inborn affinity

>if this isn’t spoilers, does tvrn have a lot of like possible bad ends (tm)? it just seems like... there’s so much that could go wrong and sometimes it makes me too nervous to suggest HFKSJFKDK
mmmmmm i think it’s more like..... things could Go badly and you guys could have a really rough time for a while, but i’m way more interested in giving you guys opportunities to fix your mistakes than i am in yelling GAME OVER, u know? and also i’m just like. fundamentally not interested in writing a story full of lgbt characters with a tragic/grimdark outcome, frankly. i’m very interested in the interactive part of tvrn being very Present, i want your suggestions to have weight and meaning and i Will enact narrative consequences when you fuck up, but i’m not interested in like. actually idk i think the best way to put this is i never want it to stop being fun. i will punish u guys for fucking up bc i think consequences are interesting and make for an engaging plot but i think that kind of punishment should always be followed by opportunities to fix things and get back on track

>In any of your quests, has there been a moment where readers did suggest something really bad that required big narrative punishment? What's the closest your quests have skirted to a Bad End?
tbh the thing abt it is that after katherine quest (which had, frankly, a fully railroaded bad end — there was no way for things to turn out well in that story), i ended up realizing that i don’t want to make any more stories with fully tragic, hopeless ends, like, ever. and honestly most of my quests that i’ve run over the years never really got Into the plot — even maroon quest had only just started to get into choices that really mattered bc i took too long on exposition. so actually the closest thing to a Huge mistake that’s been made so far is the teddy thing in tvrn, which has already been defused pretty much as well as possible (if you’d let it fester, and ESPECIALLY if you’d continued to get pascal to tell stories about him without revealing what you already know, it could have gone extremely badly.) the tvrn duel also could have been a complete disaster, which i’ve talked about briefly before. honestly tho my readers just generally don’t fuck up much

>Does minmin sticker all of his selfies? How often would he change his nails and hairstyle? being immortal, does vampire healing mean hair / nails grow faster or slower? Most importantly Does minmin know I love him
1. no. he leaves the really good ones alone 2. he has to change his nails constantly bc he chews them but his hairs been the same since 89 3. slower unless you shift it 4. yes he does

>ira!! your sketches always have so much vitality and movement (and when applicable, sex appeal lol, which is also really fun) - tips????
i draw extremely fucking fast and im horny. im struggling to come up w a Process or Method more coherent than this

[i made some offhand tweets about one of the upcoming characters in tvrn exhibiting "the illumi problem" and having vague anxiety abt how that character will be received due to that, which prompted the next questions; normally i wouldn't crosspost stuff like this that's incoherent without my social media posts but i think it's only fair to crosspost stuff that contains hints/vague spoilers.]

>Sorry if this is obvious but whats the illumi problem??
“this character is a victim of severe abuse and that’s why they’re Like This™️, but also, die” — esp when that character is placed in opposition to other abuse victims who are NOT Like That™️

>👀 i.... have an illumi bias, and a bias for similar characters...... who’s the tvrn illumi....
i’m not telling u but i will say that the character has already made an appearance which honestly makes it a little obvious i guess

>Is constantin the illumi?
NO constantin fucking sucks and has zero excuses or Extenuating Circumstances. please feel free to continue to liberally hate his guts and excuse nothing about him whatsoever

>Ira this is really important. How would Bunji do on Great British Bake Off
he would win

>How much prep do you do before starting a quest?
oh that way depends. maroon quest i launched into with nothing. tvrn i had rp’d riscal scenes with marina that pretty much cover the entirety of chapter 1 so i Kind Of had the plot prewritten but? not really bc once it’s in the reader’s hands anything could happen and in the end it ended up extremely different. the real prep there was fleshing out their characterization and learning how to write them. i have another quest that i’m going to be prepping for MONTHS before i release it, bc its going to have a battle system, sprites, icon portraits, etc..... it really just depends. but i think way more prep, if u do any, should go into characters and figuring out an art style that is fast and easy rather than into plot, bc u really have no idea how the plot is going to go once your readers get unleashed on it so save yourself the grief of going “NOOOO YOU WEREN’T SUPPOSED TO DO THAT AND NOW THIS ENTIRE SECTION I WROTE IS OBSOLETE” by only having extremely major plot points planned imo

>Can TVRN vampires hibernate?
noooo they’d get hungry

>IS pascal an idiot???
i refuse to answer this. this is the question tvrn as a piece of media sets out to pursue and i will not hand it to you

>IS pascal an intellectual.
uhhhhhh. UHHHHH. hm. yknow. in areas that INTEREST him, yes, actually

>idk what your understanding of japanese personal pronouns is but do you have an idea of what pronouns minmin, bunji, naotaro, noroi etc would use for themselves in jpn? i can see bunji and noroi using "ore" and maybe naotaro too but "boku"/"watashi" is a little more humble. personally as a trans person learning japanese, i feel like its such a power move to switch from "watashi" to "ore" so hell yeah for whatever pronoun minmin uses!
oh i def think abt this stuff bc i know like Just enough japanese to think abt it and not much more fjdkfjkd. naotaro and noroi use watashi, finn is welcome to correct me on this but i feel like bunji uses washi with people he’s not familiar w and ore w people he knows, and minmin. ok listen. minmin uses boku normally but he would straight up say shit like ore-sama when he’s in a Mood

>are there any old vampires? vampires that were turned in their 40s/50s/60s? grandma vampires?
ya but i mean i’m probably not gonna make any important npcs who look much older than 40ish bc im 25 and it’s porn and i personally only find ppl in my own visual age range sexy

>shdhfhdhffhcbchjfhfhgvcj i wasn't asking for horny reasons
oh well despite my investment in worldbuilding u do have to keep in mind that IM making all character design decisions for purely horny reasons

>all vampires are sexy and young. old people have no rights
i mean this could actually be a really interesting convo about how this is a vampiric social construct bc of the insistence on turning people In Their Prime even tho as briefly discussed already making people immortal when they’re like 21 fucks them up in extremely persistent ways but also again from a flat standpoint yeah this is bc i, the mid-20s author, am only attracted to people who look my age. old people have rights just not rights to be in my porn

[author's note: i saw spiderman into the spiderverse and [REDACTED SPOILER VILLAIN] changed my mind about this.]

>Before I dive any deeper into the this wolf pup OC, what are the rules for the TVRN werewolves?
normal human lifespans; generally normal abilities when in human form (sturdier, stronger, heal faster, but it’s not Vampire Level); they are not normal sized wolves they are HUGE wolves; can transform at will whenever they want but transform compulsively on the full moon, whether or not they’re actually in moonlight; can keep their wits about them during the compulsory transformation with an immense amount of practice and concentration but it’s more usual for them to just find ways to isolate themselves; easier to keep themselves conscious during compulsory transformation if they’re around other werewolves; live in packs of 3-20; generally nowhere NEAR as malicious, violent, petty, or interconnected as vampire society; the vast majority of werewolves are turned by accident and are welcomed into their pack as a “sorry about that, we’re gonna help you cope” deal but in some cases it’s a family tradition. transmission is through non-fatal bites

>If cryptids are real in tvrn are the muppets real? Is kermit a cryptid?
why the fuck are you implying muppets are cryptids i’m shaking with rage

>Acid soup question! How does "having" something work when it comes to crime? If I wanted to steal the Mona Lisa, I'd have to disable the alarms, get it off the wall, and then would it disappear into hammerspace? Or would I have to carry it out while the cops chased me?
for a physical object you’d have to be able to touch it, so you’d have to disable any security measures disallowing touch! but then you’ve Got it and nobody can get it from you unless they kill you and then essentially pick through your rolodex, or somehow otherwise make you choose to Give it to them

>do vampire psychologists exist? like is there a network of them?? given how screwed up vamp society is im pretty sure vamp psychologists would be getting a lot of work.
not in the cradle which is why we’re in this mess

>if minmin shapeshifted into a tsuchinoko just how emotional would bunji get
bunji gets weepy any time minmin shifts into Anything but tsuchinoko would kill him for good

>ira when do we get to cagefight pascal’s sire
the answer to this question is extremely variable depending on actions taken in canon

>ira i’m sad about pascal :(
i know

>are any of the vampires who have been introduced but whose affinities we don’t know yet specialists?
i am not going to answer ANY questions like this you silly bitches. you little sneaks

>sorry if i just missed it, but i was rereading and noticed that east coast is mentioned, but nothing else. what city and ricardo and pascal actually in right now?
that’s actually on purpose! because the first location isn’t important, and i didn’t want readers to overthink it or look too deep into it. also, to a lesser degree, i knew i was going to let readers choose the second location and i wanted to leave things as open-ended as possible (like, if i say he’s in massachusetts, then suddenly u guys wouldn’t be able to choose any cities there as a location, etc.) since u guys decided to go clear across the country it ended up being a non-issue, but in the beginning that was my thought process.

>What Hogwarts houses would the tvrn cast be in?
oh hell yeah i still love houses even tho jkr can eat shit. of the introduced characters:
ricardo - gryffindor
pascal - slytherin
kel - gryffindor
lamb - gryffindor
minoru - slytherin
bunji - hufflepuff
teddy - hufflepuff
rex - gryffindor
jonquil - ravenclaw
jonquil is the only ravenclaw and there’s a severe gryffindor surplus because vampires are dumb as fuck

>Pascal minmin slither-pals....
minmin is head boy and wildly popular and knows every student by name and nobody sits with pascal at dinner

>when are we going to get to see pascal turn into a fucked up bat
i’m being dead serious when i say it’s going to be extremely hard to get him to do that in front of anyone bc he knows he’s going to be mocked for it

>RICARDO IS A GOOD BOY HE WOULD NEVER MAKE FUN OF PASCAL’S BAT :(
are you sure about that. like are you really sure about that

>does the bat look like a stuffed bat with googly eyes
yeah but like ugly, and if it was made by someone who had only heard a Description of a bat

>to be fair to pascal i'm pretty sure every vampire looks like that when they shift into bats because thats exactly what it sounds like vampire society would do. also to be fair to vampire society: even most real bats don't look like bats
fair and true that most bats look extremely made up

>That video where the guys like “MA. THERES A WEIRD FUCKIN CAT OUTSIDE”. That cat. That’s what Pascal’s bat form looks like.
it evokes the same emotions, yes

>bunji’s a noble??? does he have a cool culturally significant vampire job too?
yeah, p much the same rank as minmin! and this hasnt really come up yet but most vampires are happily unemployed

>The vampires that are employed - are their jobs seen as "hobbies" or is every vampire job vital to society, like minoru's?
it’s a mix! some work specifically within vampire frameworks, like minoru (there are other vampire-specific jobs that will come up later) but vampires who work among humans are considered weirdos with weird hobbies

>hi ira! im sorry if someone already asked this or if you talked about this and im not caught up so i havent read the latest phone updates but would vampires have trouble working touch screens because of the blood and body heat thing?
afaik touch screens work via electric charge, which a corpse can still conduct, so nope! no problems

>do vampires HAVE to get their blood directly from people. I might have missed something.
mmm this will be covered. technically, no. it has to be human but it depends on what u mean by Direct

>in the lamb interlude will we be able to fuck kel because im gay for her
maybe. kel is elusive to her wards on the fuck front for very good reasons

>what was kels sire like? except if it's spoilers, but I'm very curious!
kel killed him the second she was strong enough so i have put precisely zero thought into him tbh

>Which of your protagonists (from any of your works) would you get along the best with? Which would you get along the worst with?
oh man when you narrow it down to protags only..... id get along best with maroon for sure. we’d chill. pascal i would kill with my bare hands bc he is a blatant projection of everything i dislike about myself

>which in the tvrn cast would stan ryo asuka and who would want to punch him
stan: minmin, pascal
punch: ricardo, kel, lamb, bunji

>Which of your characters are cat, dog, bird or rodent people?
cat: minmin
dog: ricardo, bunji (but he loves all animals, also he’s not mine but yknow. he gets included), kel, pascal
bird: uh. nobody, probably just bc i personally do not like birds and can’t really imagine having predominant affection for them
rodent: lamb

>who would be pascal's favorite la squandra member
oh shit. uhhh. probably risotto bc he finds him the most attractive and the [pascal voice] Most Cool!!!! his least favorite would be prosciutto, despite the fact that prosciutto would be the second most attractive to him, bc he thinks prosciutto’s nagging is annoying

>who would be pascal’s favorite jojo? :o
JOSUKE!!!!!!!! and u didn’t ask but for the record, ricardo’s would be jolyne

>does the existence of mermaids mean that there are Fair Folk in general? are we never allowed to meet them because thats just a whole new layer of Extreme Fantasy Bitch Politics but sunlight flavored. can we feed constantin to a bog hag and possibly spark a massive supernatural war between vampires and the fair folk?
pretty much everything exists in tvrn, but as pascal said — why worry abt them when vampires are the uncontested top of the food chain

>*o* are we going to meet mermaids in tvrn...
are you going to make our protags, who are creatures with a fatal weakness to natural bodies of water, go fuck around by natural bodies of water

>will there be catboys in tvrn? like, do they exist in the universe for us to potentially encounter? is there a possibility of us meeting catboys? because I will steer pascal and ricardo in any necessary direction for catboys
hm. hm. there are genuinely, this is not me fucking with you, a lot of ways to answer this but all of them are things i want you guys to find out yourselves in canon

>Technically we've already confirmed that Ricardo Could be a catboy if we want him to be, we could totally meet other shifters who would also be catboys
i hate to say it but it goes deeper than this

>How much of Vampire Depression is to do with the fact it's always dark out?
very, very little

>What is Noroi's vampire ability?
i cannot tell u that bc there is a very slim chance that if u make very good friends w minmin u might get to visit the higuchi estate in which case there is then a further slim chance that u might duel him and SO, i can’t spoil it

>Yo! I’m an old quest reader - was there other quests you thought about rebooting? I always was a huge fan of how you wrote a more spooky/horror genre and I’d love to see it again one day! (If you don’t want to answer no worries - I don’t want to take away from the work you’re doing now!!!!)
mmmm tbh not really! most of my dead quests i’m now completely disinterested in or in worst case scenarios embarrassed by — maroon quest is the only one that i think still holds up. the villains win is basically like wild/weary reloaded, tho

>On the topic of dead quests, is there any chance you would be willing to write like a short "ending" or notes on the direction you would have wanted it to go? I mostly ask because I hope Loretta and Paris are okay. That said, I get it if you rather just leave it and move on
i can tell you that i never would have written an ending where paris and loretta aren’t okay. there’s a lot of stuff about loretta quest i don’t want to touch anymore though bc i was in an awful place and the way i was using lq to cope was harmful to me - i was just reliving shit through different lenses instead of processing anything. i’ve said i don’t want it to be left without an ending but i also don’t know when/if i’ll ever want to touch it again

[i mentioned that most of the gore in tvrn will be more of the kill bill variety where someone's head gets chopped off and there's an absurd geyser of blood that lasts two minutes, rather than the saw franchise variety of lingering shots on things that are genuinely stomach-churning, then mused, "but the clowns will be bad." which led to the following messages]

>ira i literally can’t tell if you’re joking or not about scary clowns being in tvrn
i would never fucking joke about something like this

>Will the clowns be kinda sexy tho
of course. obviously. why would you doubt me

time for.... more crossposting

>what's the 'template' of regeneration? will a person with a broken limb have it fully healed when they become a vampire? what about more permanent things like lower-body paralysis, or brain damage? does regeneration pull from some template in the DNA?
any injuries you had before you were turned that wouldn’t have healed by human standards will not heal — i.e. if the vampire who turned you broke your arm in the attack, that will heal. but if you already had, for example, a limp, or if you were visually impaired, or even little things like scars — anything that would be permanent by human standards — those things won’t go away. this also means if a vampire rips your arm off while turning you, uhhhh, it’s gone, and that’s the basis your undead body will always return to in terms of regeneration/healing bc it was gone while you were still human, soooo. be careful guys!!!

>what if someone puts a vampire in a blender. can they recover
no because that counts as simultaneous destruction of the head and heart. if you put everything but their head in a blender they’d be fine but very irritated with you

>Can Ricardo dance? He can't, can he?
he absolutely cannot.

>do vampire dens Have to be location based? can there be like. internet clique vampire dens. tumblr kinnies with duel rules about killing doubles. a den of vampires still on usenet for some reason. obscure almost-forgotten forum vampire den
oh there’s for sure online covens. DENS are location based but [2010s vampire voice] Found Coven

>If you did something horrible to solid food, like put a hamburger in a blender with some water, could a vampire eat that? Soup, I guess I'm saying
why do yuo guys ask me such horrible things

>If a shifters animal form is covered completely covered in feathers/fur, for example a crow, are they more resistant to sunlight? (other than exposed areas and eyes, of course)
nope!! same old same old

>if a vampire put on sunscreen would that help?
nope! the sunlight weakness is a Magicky thing more than a physical thing

>Do vampires ever shift their dicks to be bad fanfic proportions? Like 18 inches and stuff
of course they do

>is a vampire wearing silver jewelry seen as really badass or really dumbass?
extremely dumbass and also over time it would just burn a jewelry-shaped trough in you (wearing a cross or other religious emblem if you’re religious isn’t seen in the same way since it’s 1. not as physically harmful and 2. is understood as a choice irt deep personal values instead of just ‘welcome to jackass’)

>Would minmin ever ship a vampire with another type of monster, or is his matchmaking career strictly limited to vampire and vampire relationships, either by personal decision or familial tradition/law? Vamp/Jiangshi/Werewolf/Swamp Thing is taboo
career-wise his job is vampires only — actually his job is Political matches only, and he bends the rules 1. for extra money and 2. bc his sire, naotaro, is not a traditionalist and has been slowly pushing the higuchi line away from rigid political matchmaking for the past two centuries, and not without opposition, because of his [older vampire voice] Radical views on marrying for love. aside from that in just a general sense, you would be very hard pressed to find another monster who Wants to be with a vampire. they are not well liked. but it happens!

>How many vampires go to Halloween parties in cheesy vampire costumes?
tons of them. this is something that is considered universally funny in vampire culture

>are we going to meet any werewolves in tvrn?
i dunno. are you?

>Maybe a weird thing to ask, but it's been bugging me. Why can't modern vampires see their reflection? I know the thing use to be because mirrors were made with silver and silver repels the undead/evil so it wouldn't even show their reflection. Today most mirrors are made with aluminum since it's cheaper.
because it’s cool

>How wild did vampires get when they realized they could videotape having sex and watch themselves for the first time
vampires realizing they showed up in video at all was just a fucking circus bc it was their first opportunity to observe themselves in motion since they were turned (so most older vampires at that point had completely forgotten what they looked like in motion.) u know how you’ll be admiring yourself in the mirror but none of the selfies turn out, bc u just look that much better in motion? imagine not having that, for CENTURIES. but also yeah it took them abt two seconds to point it at fuck, too

>Do TVRN vampires know what vore is and do they consider what they do as vore???? The people need to know :O
i mean vampires who use the internet a lot know. and they don’t think it counts but if they Know what vore is then obviously they joke about it

>Hey if vampires can't eat solid food, can they eat ass. Also did swallowing Ricardo's c*m really give Pascal vamp indigestion or was that just a taste thing
it was just a taste thing and of COURSE they can eat ass. what would be the point of vampires who don’t eat ass

>are there any vampires who just don’t *like* eating ass?
no

>i know you’ve said all cryptids and supernatural creatures exist in tvrn, but what about witches (or any human practitioners of magic, or a magic system in general?)
there is a magic system that humans, fae, and dragons can access but it’s almost certainly going to come up in the vegas arc so i won’t say anything about it. vampires no longer count as humans

>will we get to fuck a dragon
are you going to go and make them hunt down a dragon you horny little fool

>Will there be any M/F pairings in TVRN?
profoundly unlikely

>Does any tvrn species (vampires, mermaids...) have magical soulmate bonds? Or is it all regular soulmate bonds i.e. communication and listening skills?
i hate soulmate aus and everything related to them fjdkfjdj so yeah it’s all Communication and they all have just as much difficulty with it as humans do. except for bigfoots whose communities are built on compassion and active listening and have the lowest divorce rate of any species in the universe

>did u name pascal pascal bc a pascal is an unit of internal pressure/stress? 🤔
no i named pascal pascal because it’s cute and he’s half french. but that’s a cool theory and you’re free to continue believing that i’m that smart if you want

>So what do we have to do if we want to see Bunji naked
i consulted sunny about this and she said either you have to endure a threesome with him and minmin or bond with him enough that he wants to do old man shit with ricardo like. go to a public bath/sauna or something

the other thing you all missed in my anon inbox is someone tried to argue that giving a vampire from transylvania a sesame street count von count accent perpetuates offensive stereotypes and they were being literally one billion percent serious. i do an immense service by combing through these and only crossposting the good stuff

re:mirrors I hate to be this guy but ACKSHUALLY it was never because of silver, it's not like the dirtfuck peasants passing these superstitions around could afford the silver for a fancy-ass mirror, it's just because of superstitions about reflections and the soul and OBVIOUSLY vampires are soulless monsters so it's actually more historically correct for a vampire not to have any sort of reflection at all

Hey fractal, if your vampires were real, and it became publiccally known they were real, what would you want humanity to do with that knowledge? Legally? Should it be legal right for vampires to feed?

Supernatural creatures legal rights and status in todays society keeps me up at night. Is a werewolf legally resposible for any murders they commit under a feral transformation? If a boy with latent paychic powers kills someone by accidentally releasing them, should they be charged with manslaughter?

also im behind on lore crossposts again

>has anyone ever asked about the effects of garlic in the tvrn universe
pascal mentions super briefly that garlic superstition is ridiculous but jokes on him bc if he ever ate a clove he sure would throw up. that counts

>was there a better way to handle the oyabun situation? what about a worse way?
there were ABSOLUTELY worse ways. being openly defiant or combative to her would have gone very badly. as for better.... mmm it’s hard to say. we haven’t really seen the full consequences/changes that have come from the way that situation was handled yet, or how it’s changed the dynamic between chidori and nanako yet. things could have gone very Differently but it’s hard to say whether a different outcome would objectively be better or worse

>can i ask how your style developed so that character noses are a sometimes thing? i cannot phrase it in a way that doesnt sound wrong in some way but i legitimately am curious dont think its bad arent judging u (i know the anime stigma in art circles)
i think it was that in visual shorthand (if it’s a distance model, if i’m just doodling) i never put noses on them and then i just ended up realizing i thought it was really cute like that even in more detailed drawings. now for me actually drawing noses is just a tool to communicate the angle of the face if needed

>Do buff vampires need to have muscles or is it all magic? Do they need to work out and pump iron or are they just, vampire?
it’s both! if two vampires both have the power affinity, are the same general age, and have both fed at around the same time — so basically, if all the Vampire Magic is on equal footing — the person who has done more physical training is going to be stronger, so vampires who are Serious Duelists put time and effort into their bodies too.

>Is there any way to stop being a vampire, other than death?
nope! you’re in it for the long haul! it wouldn’t be horror otherwise!

>so eastern europe took ages to adopt the gregorian calendar so pascal probably grew up using the old julian calendar and he doens't seem like the type to learn the new one. so can pascal tell the date. does he know what day it is
[holding my head in my hands] oh my god. oh my god you’re right. he wouldn’t learn it. he wouldn’t care. he doesn’t know what day it is

>can vampires turn animals to be vampires? logistically i realize that this would be a terrible thing to do, the animals would kill without thinking of not being discovered, etc etc, but I also feel like maybe some vampires would try to do it without considering the consequences
nope, only humans can be turned into vampires! this extends to any other sapient creatures in the tvrn universe — humans ONLY, all the way down

>would you be willing to say what the known oldest vampires age is? or like a ballpark? We know pascal is young and ricardo is baby, but how old is old as shit in tvrn?
the oldest vampire that we’ll probably meet in tvrn is like, 5000, and that’s old as SHIT. a vampire like kel in the 1300-ish range is considered, like, Established and Competent and Cool. a vampire who’s like 400-500 like bunji is respectable. a vampire who’s 250-ish like pascal is considered Just old enough to take seriously

>wait do vampires feed off of like. sirens/bigfeet/werewolves/other vampires? like can they do that instead of humans. like all the many issues with that aside
they Could feed off other sapient creatures but the taste is Off, and also other creatures are generally much more able to defend themselves so there’s no reason for them to put in the extra effort. as pascal has mentioned briefly, they do kill other creatures for territory, though. vampires feeding on other vampires is something that needs to be explored in the thread!

>i hope this isn't spoilers but... do the old as shit vampires actually remember all their life? or even a 1000yo vampire. like, that's a Lot of years to be alive. does their memory kind of start to deteriorate after a while?
it’s not really spoilers! it depends on the vampire. kel’s got shit pretty together but she doesn’t sweat the details; the 5000 y/o vamp i mentioned remembers Everything. a lot of it hinges on how much you Want to remember

>how does pascal feel about slime videos
he hasn’t discovered them yet but when he does he’s going to go fucking apeshit and by apeshit i mean “laying on the couch watching them for hours at a time bc he has depression”

>If you like dipped a chicken nugget in blood could a vamp eat it and not throw up? If a hamburger is bloody enough but literally and unironically could Pascal know true joy? Is there a blood-to-food ratio you could achieve where eating a Cheetos wouldn't fuck up your shitty yet superior vampire body?
no. all is puke. no solid food whatsoever

>Ok but would that mean vampires can drink milk? Are there lactose intolerant vampires? Do they puke if they drink milk
i’m just gonna be honest and say that you guys are about a thousand times more interested in the technicalities of this than i ever will be

>in tvrn, do different blood types have different tastes? or is it all placebo effect for those that do think it. "dude i SWEAR this one tasted better i SW-" "theyre all the same. theyre all the fucking same, oh my god"
it is absolutely the latter. any vampire who claims to taste the difference between blood types is bullshitting

>who in tvrn and acid soup smokes weed
tvrn:
- pascal when he can get it but he can’t currently bc everyone hates him
- jonquil
- minmin will socially but doesn’t on his own
- naotaro
- two of kel’s wards but you haven’t met them yet

acid soup:
- belial
- ne
- like every member of the sukebun
- lowry doesn’t currently but when she discovers it it’s going to help a lot
- cain

>RICARDO BIG CAT PUPILS????????
[solemnly] ricardo big cat pupils.

>Your work in color is so stunning and atmospheric - is there a reason you decided to keep TVRN in grayscale?
the primary and extremely unglamorous answer is update speed! it is about a billion times faster + easier to go “ok ~6 shades of grey, 3 shades of red” rather than juggling, like u said, palettes focused on atmosphere and trying to keep palettes across an entire cast of characters more or less consistent the way i do in acid soup. it’s not totally a workflow economy choice tho!!! it is also a loving nod to black and white vampire films, like nosferatu and the bela lugosi dracula.

>so if kel has roughly 400 wards and constantin has like sixty, and he's younger than her too.... kel could probably likely easily snap him in half, right
if it was one on one, yes. but aggressing him is aggressing the entire cradle and all affiliated houses

>Do vampires begin to weaken when they are very old or do they never stop to grow stronger ?
if all other factors are exactly the same, an older vampire will always be stronger at baseline than a younger one. but all factors are rarely exactly the same! as an example, i once mentioned offhand that there will be a character in tvrn who is roughly 5000 years old. but he’s generally averse to violence (at least by vampiric standards) and has had no interest in learning to fight beyond the bare minimum of what’s necessary to defend himself and his wards. kel is 1300, has devoted her life to warfare, and would crush him like a saltine cracker. in the same way, pascal is half bunji’s age, and bunji is a power type, but he was still able to break bunji’s ankle (even though he injured himself doing it) because he was freshly fed and bunji hadn’t fed for an indeterminate amount of time. there are always ways to level the playing field!

>how does kel make time for all 400 of her wards? :O?
she kind of doesn’t. though she turns them all personally in small batches of 3-4 at a time (unlike many cradle families who use branching “the wards of my wards are automatically Mine” systems), most of them are trained and brought up by her older, trusted wards, and she spends the most personal time with the ones who have the most potential. kel is much better in terms of basic decency than most other powerful sires, but she is faaaaar from perfect, and she is a warlord — her main purpose behind creating new vampires is military power, not companionship.

>I know Pascal turned Ricardo by accident but how do most vampires approach turning someone? Do they ask first?
it depends. the vast majority of cradle houses do not, and turn humans against their will based on the sire’s personal taste. the higuchi family, as an example, approaches humans and proposes the turn clearly and honestly, like a business proposal. most american nomadic vampires turn people they already know for companionship. kel only turns women who manage to hunt her down and demand it

>i mean if you were a housebound wife drop spindling all the damn year long and then one day you see kel carrying her horse down the lane who wouldn't snap their husband's neck and chase after her
RIGHT. this is exactly the mood

>Do any vampires decide to shift into animals permanently or semi-permanently?
you wouldn’t be able to hold a shift that dramatic permanently! a vampire who’s competent at shifting could hold a form they’re comfortable with for a few hours without breaks in a relaxed context (i.e. turning into a bat to fly somewhere); one of kel’s wards who is a shifter can hold one of her forms in an aggressive combat context/at full exertion for abt 15 minutes, which is considered pretty intense.

>how long can pascal hold his jackal form?
in theory, like 40 mins. in practice, like 40 seconds bc he HATES not being able to talk

>Does Kel believe dead vampires go to Valhalla?
she has an opinion. she has a fucking WEIRD opinion

Blade was born from a pregnant human being bit by a vampire, so what you're saying is that Blade would be stillborn in TVRN or birthed normally?

Granted the mother having to spend three days DEAD before being turned requirement would really fuck with their development unless the sire could perform a c-section to save the child in that period.

>>127867
You know, if there would be a quest just about being a single Mom on tgchan, I'd bet the protagonist would be just like her. I don't think a tgchan quest HAS tackled trying to be a parent before... for good reason. Would be funny though.

I didn't think Pascal was mocking their culture. One statue's appearance is only the barest surface level, after all(the history of the statues is pretty interesting!). I can't see how he phrased it now, maybe it's worse than I remember.

If you ask me the problem was probably how Fractal drew the statue, it could be considered a racist caricature due to being a bit exaggerated.

yeah, the best explanation is the one that informed my decision (which is this one quoted here.) someone else had opened the conversation by telling me in broader terms that they found the joke uncomfortable and racist, and i didn’t really Get It bc from my perspective it was just a joke abt his expression, and then when this person weighed in that was my like lightbulb moment where i was like “oh, SHIT, it DOES completely come off like this.” i don’t think that my intent in this case matters at all bc it doesn’t change what the end result ended up being (which is.... Bad.)

i was very firmly convinced by the points this person brought up, and i don’t want anything like that in my work, and also i just want to take it seriously when someone says they’re disappointed in me for legitimate reasons, so altogether that’s why i decided to just remove that part entirely and redo it.

it’s crosspost time

>What tamagotchi does Jonquil have? Like one of the original ones, or the 20th anniversary re-release? Or are they like super into it and have one imported one from Japan that they've patched
they have Many. they have a Collection

>do any vampires turn their family members? parents, siblings, a big undead family?
depends on location/culture! this is super common in dens (like the brooklyn one.) the same with turning close friends for companionship — generally only done in vampire populations where the ward/sire relationship isn’t automatically considered one of servitude

>when you say tvrn out loud do you say 'turn' or 'tee vee ahr enn'
i say turn! but [my wife, who created ricardo + several other characters] tends to pronounce it almost like “tavern” (kind of like... t’vern) and sometimes i catch that version of it sneaking into my brain

>If you've used historical figures like Elizabeth Bathory as vampires, are there any modern-day famous people that are vampires or other monsters?
i feel weird abt writing anyone who hasn’t been dead for a century or more into my porno comic tbh fjdkjdkd. like even if it was just as a joke it’s just a boundary i don’t really wanna mess around w

>tvrn characters' weirdest sleeping positions?
jonquil crams themself into the smallest spaces they can find like a fucked up cat

>how do you come up with this stuff?! for tvrn i mean. you seem to have such rich backstory and a whole entire arc planned out and it's super cool. i don't know how to tell stories or create characters with depth. also i would buy enamel pins if we're suggesting merch.
ohhhh this is kind of a hard question. my instinctive answer was “i just Do It” but i know that’s not really true, it’s just that i don’t know how to put what i do into words. i’ll try tho!
i think worldbuilding and character development are both just asking yourself a lot of questions and then answering them. the concept of wards + sires is something that’s been part of my Personal Vampire Lore since i was like 15; the question is “well if you get turned into a vampire who shows you how to hunt people without getting caught and how do you find out which stuff is real or not re: crosses and garlic and stuff” and the answer in my case was “well i guess the person who turned you had better show you otherwise they’re a dick.” and then like in terms of how pascal became better developed.... at first his concept was just “vampire who seems scary and elegant but actually he’s just kind of lazy and a loser and a coward.” and so you ask questions about that. “doesn’t he have any friends?” not really. “how does he feel about that?” he’s resigned to it. “what does he do all day?” nothing, frankly. and you just keep asking yourself questions like that until you’ve like..... covered everything, kind of.

>sorry ya it is a tough question ! i guess i’m just really impressed w the way your story is crafted with. peaks and falls and action and what is to be discovered and resolution like i think i just don’t know how to write a story lol
i think the best way to learn to write stories is just to consume a bunch of stories! my work is very strongly influenced by shoujo and shonen in equal measure, and by horror movies, plus of course tvrn is a big sloppy nod to the standard trashy romance novel formula: relatively average but strongwilled protag is thrust into a situation in which they have to exist in close quarters with mysterious sexy asshole, lots of people try to stop it from happening, protag slowly uncovers mysterious sexy asshole’s Tragic Past and Hidden Softness, etc etc. so it’s really just drawing from a bunch of other stuff that i like!

>Who would think being compared to a furby is a complement in the TVRN cast? Is it Jonquil?
jonquil would not like being compared to a furby bc they would interpret that as “slow to learn, almost universally considered annoying.” minmin thinks furbies are cute tho. (furbies? furbys?)

>what does minmin think about longfurby
minmin commissioned a custom longfurby to wear like a mink stole

>Hot take: Pascal should blow raspberries on Ricardo's abs
your brain is so big. thank you

>can we have some werewolf fuck tips since I know werewolves tend to rightfully avoid vampires but, how do we set them at ease around us not to run off when we approach them?
dont let pascal say or do anything at all

>d does pascal hate werewolves or do werewolves hate pascal
pascal is a little fucking bitch asshole to werewolves for absolutely no reason

>will the werewolves be... Hot
everyone in tvrn is and always will be hot, in various and many-splendored ways

>Did pascal fuck oscar wilde Yes or yes
the timeline on this one actually works out perfectly. you know what maybe pascal wasn’t grossed out by fucking humans when he was younger and then he changed his mind once he started getting older

>So pascal said he’s not into fucking humans but how uncommon/taboo is it to other vampires? Are some of them down with that?
i would say more vampires Aren’t into it than are, not bc of any kind of taboo but just bc as a physical experience it isn’t Great, but it’s not that uncommon.

>i’m all for pascal fucking mozart and i hate to be the one to tell you this but i feel like it’s relevant to point out that it was uncovered in some letters he wrote his cousin that mozart had a scat fetish
[taking out my big eraser] not in the tvrniverse he didn’t

>What would happen if the Hearts Goetia cast and TVRN cast net up? Would they fight or something?
i think it’s safe to say like half of them would fuck and the other half would kill each other

>wait how much ass eating is in tvrn. should i start reading it
to be COMPLETELY frank with you there is, so far, much less ass eating than there is psychological horror but i’ll try to even it up

>OK this could be something u don’t want to touch on until it comes up in canon which is totally fine but is constantin just turning people who look like himself?? Because he has the beauty mark, unless its also a tattoo?????
no this is fine i don’t really consider it a spoiler. he does turn ppl who look like him

[it would feel silly to copy paste something in spanish when everything else in this thread is in english but paraphrased, i got a question abt whether tvrn vampires need to be invited into buildings and the answer is only private residences. so they could enter an apartment building without an invitation but to enter a specific unit where someone lives they would need an invitation]

>How would the main vampires in tvrn so far comfort someone in floods of tears? (if comforting is something they do instead of just "you're crying. Stop doing that")
we actually have seen ricardo try to comfort pascal when he was crying in ch 1 and his reaction is literally “stop that.” pascal would probably try to make you laugh to distract you, or flirt playfully to get your mind off it. kel would comfortingly slap you on the back and probably break several of your bones doing so and then you’d be too shocked and winded to keep crying. lamb......... lamb would just get uncomfortable and leave

>Yes tvrn vamps are majestically op, But ever since you said the brain and the heart keep going unless they're completely destroyed I've wanted to. behead a vampire and see if it grows into two vampires like when you cut a worm in half.
i actually answered this once and can’t remember what i said but it was probably something boring and practical like “after 3 days of separation, whichever body half has Less to regenerate (so almost always the body w the heart in it) will start regenerating and the other part will die like a mortal body” but i change my mind and now i’m saying whether the head or the heart is prioritized as the center of regeneration depends on the vampire bc that’s cooler

>now im wondering if pascal’s comments about werewolves not being a threat to vampires is going to come bite us in the ass when he inevitably pisses off a werewolf and we learn werewolves ARE a threat, actually,
it is possible pascal cosovei was blowing it out his ass when he bragged he could take a pack of werewolves singlehanded

>If Pascal tried to suck my blood I would merely take out an aerosol can and a lighter and completely immolate his shitty vampire body
thank you so much

>can vampire be moth
yes

>what would happen if a vampire tried to suck a werewolf's blood? or are we going to have to find that out ourselves? I'll stop if my werewolf questions are getting tiring.
the vampire would retch and spit a lot and wonder why the hell they tried to do that because it tastes like shit

>are all vampires as... elitist as Pascal? he seemed really dismissive of other cryptids. or is it just an old european house thing. also is Kel friends with any banshees?
most cradle vamps are worse than him, and almost all vampires are very obnoxiously aware of how solid their position at the top of the supernatural food chain is even if they aren’t as shitty abt it as cradle vamps are about, like, everything. even if they aren’t elitist abt it tho most vampires don’t have anything to do w other creatures anyway, bc other creatures want nothing to do w vampires, bc vampires are hyperviolent freaks. banshees are completely solitary but kel has some history with sirens

>how would pascal react if some rando just called him a rat because pascal reminds me of a rat but in both a good way and a bad way
he would scream. and then get distracted bc rats are kind of cute and he’d start thinking maybe it was a compliment

>Ok but would kel be friends with a buff werewolf lady if she fought for her love
kel could crush even an extremely tough werewolf in one hand like a dry leaf so it would be hard for a werewolf to win her respect by fighting her but maybe a werewolf could win kel’s respect if kel observed her like, fighting for her pack. (kel would probably refuse to fight a werewolf period bc it would be so unbalanced.)

>wait, do the bathory wards get the tattoo BEFORE being turned? if they got it after, it would just heal, right? 🤔
yep, they do

>hey ira!! do you have voiceclaims / ideas about how tvrn characters sound?
not really! this is one of those things where like... i guess my brain just doesn’t really work that way? and i don’t think abt it in very specific terms

>you've at least implied The Count from Sesame Street as a voiceclaim for Pascal before xD
you’re right, i apologize. count von count is the official pascal voiceclaim

>what do vampires think of their depictions in media? like, do they think its funny or insulting or are they just 'humans are stupid.' Is Dracula wary that they've semi-caught on to his existence?
depends on the vampire. pascal loves them. dracula isn’t bothered — as far as he’s concerned, all the bullshit just obscures his actual operations

>what r dracula's Actual Operations? 👀
in what universe would i answer this when we are on chapter 2, you little sneak

>does dracula have his ass out at all times. does dracula wear stockings. please tell me dracula is sexy and has gigantic titties even if he is evil and we will have to kill him inevitably or die trying at endgame i just want to know
im not telling you anything abt dracula except that all tvrn characters are sexy

>is it ethical to fuck tvrn dracula is the real question we should be asking
i genuinely haven’t decided yet

>Ok but what about the brides of dracula, if they exist are they hot? Are they the grooms of dracula instead
dracula is single

>i forget if you've mentioned this somewhere, but how long can a vampire go without feeding before starvation sets in? and are there any long-term consequences if a vampire frequently approaches starvation, or does their accelerated healing take care of it?
pascal’s mentioned this briefly — depends on how old a vampire is. pascal feeds about once every three weeks in cold weather, and more frequently when it’s warm out. as for the actual limits of starvation, he does mention a story about elizabeth bathory surviving four years without blood — but he also says he thinks that’s impossible sensationalized bullshit, and that in general a 500-1000 year old vampire would be able to go 5-6 months at most. consequences of repeated starvation will be addressed in canon pretty soon

>I think TVRN is turning me gay
congrats and welcome

>do you think it would be going to fast if Ricardo and Pascal got shotgun married in vegas by an elvis impersonator
if ricardo even vaguely broached this subject pascal would steal another car and leave him to die

>Can vampires speak furbish
yuo people age me

>ira help was there bigfoot lore in tvrn, i scrolled ur curiouscat for a while but couldn’t find it
there was but a lot of it is on my nsfw cc (it wasn’t nsfw lore just like, sometimes ppl send it there). basically: they’re pacifists who deeply value strong communication and are happier than almost every other supernatural species

>do bigfeet look at vampires and go "wowww. sucks to be you. peace!" and go away if they encounter a vampire?
essentially yeah. they feel compassion for vampires but also Nobody Wants To Deal With That

>how open to fucking are bigfeet?
in general? extremely. fucking vampires in particular? that is a much harder sell given vampires’ tendency towards Unbridled Murder

>Do Bigfeet count as furbies
fuck you

>Do Vampires leave ghosts? Where are the cute ghosts in general?
vampires do not. ghosts in general are everywhere

>im thinking abt the idea of kel adopting other ppls wards .... like if a ward was treatly badly by their sire and they ran away and found kel and wanted to be part of her army.. would she let them? or would it be too risky?
she would let them if they were tough enough to be useful to her which is a pretty narrow entry requirement

>scouring vegas like a video game level looking for the unlockable playboy bunny suit for ricardo that he has to wear in all the serious duel cutscenes

human blood to vampires just tastes like, Extremely Good. Satisfying. evokes the response of “This Is All I Need.” but it all generally tastes the same, the difference only comes in the actual quality based on the health of the victim (and some vampires are more sensitive to/picky about it than others).

No. 128504 ID: 270774

>>128503
thats briefly mentioned in chapter 2; minmin compares it to blood type personality theories and insists it’s accurate. in summary, he says:
- power types are “impatient, straightforward, and too earnest for their own good”
- shifters are “crazy tenacious and resourceful and ... socially an acquired taste”
- he doesn’t say anything about psychic affinities in general, but when ricardo asks about hypnotists like pascal minmin refuses to answer bc he “doesn’t have anything nice to say”
- and specialists don’t fit into affinity typing at all.

So on a rare chance a human survives a proper vampire feeding (assuming they're throats weren't gouged out like Ricardo does to his victims), is a vampire obligated to finish them off if the human makes it to a hospital (or say they get caught by the police one way or another)?

Now, I'm making the assumption while asking this question that a filling feeding doesn't go way past the surviving point of blood loss and merely near it. Since vampires need to fast themselves to drain enough blood create a ward, I imagine it might actually be possible to survive if the vampire isn't that hungry, but is still hungry enough to want to feed. They bite, drink enough that they're full, the human's bleeding out, the vampire leaves the dying body, and someone discovers the victim before they die and through some luck they pull through, that's the scenario I'm imaganing happen. I don't know what happens to the survivor and I'm curious about it. I don't think it would ever happen in quest, but I help can't be intrigued by the scenario in question.

well i mean yeah all that happens in a case where a human doesn’t die is....... you have a human with severe blood loss. law enforcement and medical professionals are not particularly going to be like “hmmm i guess vampires are real”

also though to be completely honest i don’t put extensive thought into whether or not the cops are onto vampires because i would find wrangling that insanely boring so i just gloss over it
