Patches has been Elliot's loyal companion and hunting partner for nearly a decade. Sparky and full of life, the canine is the opposite of his master. Fiercely obidiant and eager to please, the two are practically inseperable.
It seems as if at times my brother can understand the simple thinkings of his companion better than that of another soul.

There aren't many things that breathe during the night that can stand up to a Lycanthrope, also known as a Werewolf. Lycanthropy is an affliction that corrupts all that live, and anyone exposed to a Werewolf bite is suseptable to becoming one themselves. The young, the old, women, children, all are at risk. Once one has contracted lycanthropy, there are few options. The chuch may offer a restoration spell, but only if done so in time.
The beasts are best tracked down to their woodland lairs during the day, while the pack sleeps in human form. During the night, the creatures insatiable hunger drives them to kill everything they can. The strength and size of the werewolf depends on the victim host, but all are much larger while in true form and can kill with ease.
Wounds done to the creature heal once it returns to human form. The only thing that causes any lasting damage to a lycanthrope is silver. This silver must be true silver, taken from the earth, or it will do nothing to stop the monster.

Vampires come in two basic varieties. True Vampires and Vampire Spawn. Vampire Spawn are generally weaker and possess less supernatural ability and intelligence, while True Vampires, though feral, are more cunning and conniving.
True Vampires are intelligent enough to keep human thralls and control the efforts of multiple spawn. Controlled usually by an alpha male and alpha female pair, a single "nest" can be made up of other powerful vampires each with dozens of spawn and numerous thralls.
Vampires are committed only to their own hunger and their inherit need to corrupt the living. Often a single vampire will settle an area such as a tomb and begin infesting the region unnoticed by people until many more go missing. The only way to destroy a vampire is to cease its body's functionality. Decapitation, inflamation, immersion in water, and a stake through the heart will all destroy a vampire of any size.
A vampire cannot stand the touch of sunlight, and any natural light utterly destroys the creature. A vampire cannot cross running water unless it is carried across or within the saftey of its sarcophogus. Likewise, no vampire can enter a personal space without invitation and cannot stand the stench of garlic, hence the use of human thralls. The sight of a cross or holy symbol repels a vampire, but only as long as someone is actively keeping it at bay.
The vampire has certain abilities that it can use to its advantage over prey, or hunters. At will, spawn or true vampires can assume a gaseous form and retreat, making killing the creatures difficult unless one can track down its coffin. True vampires can call upon the creatures of the night - insects, bats, even wolves, to aid it. It can also assume animal form and escape notice.
A vampire's bite is deadly and should be avoided at all cost. Once one has been insanguinated to a certain degree, death is instantaneous, and the victim will rise as a vampire themselves. A vampire's claws leave festering, bleeding wounds that accumulate over time, causing strength damage.
These creatures, of any power, are best engaged at range, then carefully tracked and exterminated. There is no cure for the vampire's embrace. Only a return to death.

Though man is often portrayed as the victim in many cases, I can recall many times in which I've felt like the hunter. Arrayed against a world filled with nightmare creatures, if there is one thing that can be said about man, it is that it is tenacious and resilient beyond measure.
One would be foolish to underestimate the raw power of the angry residents of a village.

Ghost Time [10:59pm - 12:01am]
Sometimes called the 'Witching Hour', Ghost Time is the period of the day cycle most incorporeal undead choose to manifest. This is not because the spirit itself chooses, but more likely that its soul is locked to the time of day in which it suffered its death.
I have noted in my experience that most spirits are either Day ghosts or Night ghosts. Ghost Time represents the middle period where both kinds of spirits may choose to manifest, and therefore, more ghosts are likely to appear during this span of time between 10:59 in the evening to exactly a moment past midnight.
This moment between 12:00 and 12:01 is what I prefer to call, the Devil's Minute. I won't stretch my nerves to explain why.

Zombie Curse. Dead.
Dead: A dead creature takes no damage. Dead creatures can be sundered, severing limbs or decapitated. -4 attack roll to aim for specific parts of the body. Damage to the head in the case of a zombie is normal.
Zombies spread their infection through transference of saliva, typically through bites. Once a zombie bites a victim, the wound becomes infected with the zombie's curse, which will inevitably lead to death. Once the victim dies, after a number of days the body reanimates and becomes a zombie itself. [DC 40 Fortitude. If failed, DC 45 Fort]
Being dead, damage to a zombie is superficial. The only way to dispatch a Zombie is to destroy the brain. Once connection to the brain is severed, the curse is broken. Best to decapitate, however severing a zombie's head will only disable the body. Beware of moving jaws. Best to shove it in a sack and burn it.
