Area Vampires Are Just Like You, Except They Probably Listen To A Lot More Bauhaus

Regular guyReporting from the frontlines of the Atlanta vampire community: “Merticus, who declines to give his real name, and alliance members claim they are different, physically or psychologically. They draw energy to feel good and stay healthy, and they absorb it psychically from close contact with ‘donors’ or from drinking a tablespoon of blood from them maybe once a week. They do not claim mythic powers such as immortality, and the screen depictions are often off-putting to members.” Also: “If you go to Los Angeles, no one even cares if you are a vampire.” Sounds about right.
