A Guide to Vampires-How to Use Them in Dungeons and Dragons

This guide will give you a brief detail on how you can use vampires when playing dungeons and dragons. You can check out this list to focus on the starts and abilities of different vampires and a few movies that you should watch to get more information.

There are two sources you should check out that might be of great help:

  • Van Richten’s Guide to Vampires- the 2nd edition is rich in useful information.
  • Bram Stoker’s Dracula- this movie can give you a lot of ideas to use in Curse of Strahd.

What you should know

These are the basic things you should know when running a vampire:

  • Vampiric thralls are characters that drop to 0 points after a vampire drains off their blood.
  • During the day, vampires should rest in a coffin.
  • Vampires turn to gaseous form when they drop to 0 hit points. However, they can heal after resting in their coffins.
  • Vampires can turn into bats if they wish to.
  • Vampires have innate regeneration.
  • Depending on the spell, vampires can charm people.
  • Vampires can summon wolves, rats, or bats.
  • Holy symbols, mirrors, and garlic keep vampires at bay.
  • Running water and direct sunlight kills vampires.
  • To kill a vampire, a stake should be driven through the heart and the head cut off.

1st Edition AD&D

The vampire in this edition is the most dreaded and chaotic of all vampires. The vampires in this edition exist in two places at the same time: the material and negative material. On top of that, the vampires have a strength ratio of 18/76.

If this vampire hits an enemy, the enemy losses two levels from each attack.

The vampires in this edition are invisible. Thralls are created by draining their blood and burying them, and they rise after a day.

2nd Edition AD&D

The second edition has several vampire variants. However, the characteristics of the main vampires are:

  • They move in silence and have no shadows nor reflections.
  • 2e vampires can climb sheer surfaces like a spider.
  • Holy symbols recoil them.
  • They are destroyed by holy wafers stuffed in a severed head.
  • They cannot enter a residence without invitations. However, they can charm a victim to help them get in.

Other vampires in this edition are:

Ravenloft vampires - can be formed by a deadly desire, a curse, or by being slain by a vampire
Cerebral vampires - sink their fangs into a victim back skull and absorb the victim’s mental energies.
Drow vampires - These can turn into spiders or poisonous clouds. Their touch can drain hit points and have a paralyzing gaze.
Dwarf vampires - can walk through stones.
Gnome vampires - use painful arthritic attacks.
Halfling vampires - use aura radiation that wears out enemies.

They are many other types of vampires you can use in dungeons and dragons. Several other sources can give you ideas on how to use different types of vampires. The 3rd, 4th, and 5th edition vampires become stronger than the preceding edition vampires and have the ability to completely dominate an enemy. Check other sources to get a complete idea of how to use different types of vampires.
