HUMANS

Humans are...strong in their own way. Determined to say the least, with the capacity to become any of the other species either by choice or by force. They're the main food group for vampires so they've got a bit of a short stick in that department...especially the ghouls. These poor souls have been chosen to stand by their vampire 'master' or 'mistresses' side to offer anything that vampire might desire. ( Namely a nice fresh vein to snack on ) They are at the vampire's beck and call and many of them are under the influence of the vampire's powers.

Humans are also heavily susceptible to the werewolf bite, the vampire's bite and really just about any form of magic out there. Their lifespan is average at best, and there's a chance that when they die they might become a ghost. Still they're probably the most fun species on the board because many of them don't even KNOW what's going on around them. The supernatural community despite it's size and how widespread it is, keeps to itself. Hiding in the shadows and other places so that the humans might never know.

After all, as frail as humans might be they have their numbers, and history has proven they're entirely capable of wiping out entire species if given the chance.

WITCHES

Witches have been around from time immemorial, and are rumoured to be responsible for the creation of vampires, shifters and werewolves. While no proof can be found, and there are no survivors from the beginning of time to explain it all, it is the common assumption.

These days witches practise lesser spells, drawing on their own energy or the power of nature to cast their magic. Each witch has a specialty which they focus on, some practise elemental magic while some might prefer to focus their magic on the benefit of animals or construction. Typically these spells don't require much to complete, and can be completed with representation of the four elements e.g. candles, a bowl of water, a bowl of earth and the air/wind around them. Spells cast in a natural setting such as a forest or by a body of water have a higher chance of success.

However, there is always a darker path. Sacrificial magic is not often practised but nor is it entirely nonexistent in London. Through sacrificing the life of a living thing, more difficult magic can be achieved: such as giving a ghost a corporeal form once again, or permitting a vampire to walk in the sunlight. These spells tend to have a heavy toll on the caster, and as such aren't recommended by elder witches to their younger kin. (Sacrificial spells such as the ghost spell, the vampire spell and the spell to help a werewolf control their full form will require admin approval).

How to become a Witch

Short answer is; you can't. The only way to be a witch in this world is to be born one.

How to kill a Witch

Witches can be killed with any of the usual means that can kill a human. They're just significantly more tricky to get to. They can also die of old age, though depending on their skills- some have been known to live up to the age of 150. Unfortunately, they do look their age.

Note: Always get the other players consent before casting spells. Ask an admin if you're worried your spell might be bordering on too powerful or godmoddy. Remember, a group of witches casting together is far more powerful than a lone witch.

SHIFTERS

The supernatural community would consider a werewolf the shifter's bastard cousins. Whereas werewolves are outright hated, shifters are well respected members of the supernatural community. A shifters animal is an extension of themselves, often representing that person's inner most self. You can tell a lot about the traits someone has just by seeing the animal they turn into, and really every animal is fair game. While each shifter can only become ONE animal, what that animal is is entirely open to you. They can be anything from the tiniest flea to a mighty elephant.

While in animal form shifters are capable of human speech, though some choose to fully embrace their animal self and refuse to speak in that form. Generally a shifter's clothes will remain on once they shift back, though there have been a few notable instances where that particular perk hasn't worked as expected, and more than one shifter has had to quickly make a dash for cover when it became clear they were no longer in possession of their garments. This is most likely to happen if one shifts due to extreme stress.

Shifters are family oriented and even though some of their animal forms are loners, they do prefer to congregate in large family groups. It's not uncommon to find an entire apartment building taken up by one 'pack' of shifters, sometimes even whole neighborhoods or small towns will be made up of nothing but shifters.

In relation to the other species on the board, they are arguably the weakest and most human ( aside from the humans themselves ). They are stronger and faster, and based on their animal form have various other skills, but it's not much when put alongside a werewolf or a vampire. Shifters have one thing going against them and that's the fact that they're delicious. The mixing of animal/human in their blood makes it stronger than regular human blood, and far sweeter. Some vampires have quite the addiction.

How to kill a shifter

It's surprisingly easy to kill a shifter, providing you can get to them in that way. They're tougher than a human, and far more cunning, but shooting or cutting any vital organ will do the trick. As will removing the head and/or heart, or draining them of all their blood.

How to become a shifter

Well, you can't really. Another difference between them and the werewolves; a shifter's bite won't change you. Though there have been instances where being with a shifter/surrounding oneself with them will trigger the animal laying dormant inside of a human. This process takes time though, and it's very rare. Born shifters will not turn for the first time until puberty hits, and at first can be very erratic.

WEREWOLVES

There's some legends about how werewolves came to be. One legend says they were cursed by the moon. Shifters would have you believe that only the worst of the worst become werewolves, that something inherently evil within a person twists a perfectly good shifter into a monster. The truth of the matter is much simpler; werewolves are a genetic abnormality. Perhaps there was magic involved long ago, but nobody really remembers anymore. What they do remember is that nobody likes a werewolf.

Among the supernatural community werewolves are outcasts and loners. Though there are packs out there in the great wide somewhere, these gatherings are rare. Nobody wants a pack of werewolves living next door ( what would the neighbors think ) and so most werewolves are loners simply because it's easier, safer. Being a werewolf means having an animal inside of you. While shifters can understand this, they don't comprehend how someone could let that animal run so rampant and free. As far as vampires are concerned the difference between the two is in the blood; werewolves taste horrible, while shifters are like the gourmet version of regular old human.

Werewolves have two forms; their regular wolf form that they can shift into at will and control without issue, and then their full moon form. This monstrosity is why they've been kicked out of the shifter community. It's more humanoid then animal, and nearly uncontrollable. Only the oldest and most powerful werewolves ( after years of agonizing training ) can control their second forms and make it come at will. But don't worry, you can keep it from slaughtering helpless virgins by locking yourself in a strong room or the use of silver chains. Alternatively, find yourself a powerful witch ally to give you a helping hand.

How to kill a werewolf

The only way to kill a werewolf is through silver; silver bullets and silver nitrate are especially deadly. Wolf's bane can also cause some unwanted weaknesses and side effects. A werewolf can be extremely powerful but only really during the full moon, the rest of the time they have the same strengths as a regular shifter.

How to become a werewolf

Their bite is highly contagious but only during the full moon, so don't worry about getting frisky as long as it's not that time of the month. The only other way is to be born a werewolf, which can happen providing at least one parent is a werewolf themselves. The curse typically kicks in when puberty occurs, though in some rare instances a werewolf could be a late bloomer.

VAMPIRES

Alternatively known as the 'living' dead, vampires eke out an almost parasitical existence; feeding off the blood of mortal beings in order to retain their youth and their strength (though they are able to consume normal food and drink, it will not satisfy their hunger). Generally, a vampire enjoys superior strength and speed, but these abilities rely heavily on each individuals blood consumption. A vampire who feeds regularly and heavily will be far stronger than one who takes only the bare minimum to survive.

If a vampire goes without properly feeding for more than 48hrs they will begin to feel extreme, almost impossible to ignore cravings. If they persist, then they will become susceptible to an animalistic, blind blood-lust. They will be unable to control themselves, and there have been many reports of vampires attempting to abstain, only to wind up brutally murdering their loved ones. This, combined with the general death sentence by starvation after 1 week of abstinence- is why drinking a healthy amount of blood daily is heavily advised by London's Vampire Council.

While certainly sensitive to UV rays, a vampire may go out during the day for short periods, with appropriate levels of protection from the sun i.e. sunblock, hats, long sleeves. Providing they cover as much of their skin as they can, and don't dally too long in direct sunlight, they can survive it. Prolonged exposure will lead to a sensation not unlike vertigo, before the vampire loses consciousness. If a vampire were to be left in direct sunlight for over 6 hours, they would likely die of what would appear to be severe heatstroke. If a powerful witch can be persuaded, a vampire may be gifted with a ring, locket or amulet that will allow them to walk in the sun. This magic requires heavy sacrifice and a large toll on the witches power and strength, so isn't often done. (will require admin approval).

A vampires abilities greatly rely upon the amount of blood consumed. A healthy vampire, who drinks the appropriate amount of blood will find themselves endowed with great speed and superior strength to one who drinks only the minimum needed to survive. All vampires are also blessed with the ability to 'compel' weaker species to do their bidding: this works best on humans, though can also affect werewolves and shifters to a degree. It has no effect on witches or ghosts. Again, the more blood a vampire has consumed- the more effective this ability.

Contrary to popular belief, vampires can change their appearance. This is meant in the very general sense; a new haircut will not grow back to its original length immediately, but it will grow back. Nails still require trimming, facial hair will grow back. A vampire is not officially 'dead' after all, and the magic that keeps their hearts beating keeps their bodies alive to a degree. So no, they are not a frozen snapshot of how they looked before being turned, but they won't get any older.

How to kill a vampire

Aside from prolonged exposure to the sun, there are a few proven ways to weaken or kill a vampire. While undeniably immortal, a vampire may be weakened by pure silver. A wooden stake to the heart will paralyse a vampire, with the only true way to effectively kill one being to remove its head or its heart. A vampire who refuses to feed will also succumb to a true death after a week of abstinence.

How to become a vampire

To become a vampire, one must have their blood almost entirely drained, and then replaced in part with the blood of their would-be sire. This is a risky process, with only an 80% success rate. Sometimes, the human will simply pass away from blood-loss before the transformation can take place. Humans, shifters, witches and warlocks can all become vampires, but the latter three groups will lose all their previous abilities. All vampires feel a bond to their sire, though how strong depends on each individual case. Some vampires find themselves easily controlled by their sire's will, others are entirely independent. Nobody knows the defining factors behind this phenomenon, but it's generally believed to have something to do with the age of the sire.

GHOSTS

Pale shadows of their former selves. A ghost is the memory of a once living person (be they human, vampire, witch, shifter or werewolf) who is now cursed to wander the earth, unable to find peace. There have been accounts of a ghost managing to find rest and finally shuffling off this mortal plane, but this is a rare occurrence. Often, a soul becomes a ghost due to a crippling fear of death, or an adamant refusal to accept their life is over. Some relish the opportunity to become a ghost and haunt their enemies, while some more benevolent spirits simply wish to protect or watch over a loved one.

Usually ghosts are intangible, almost transparent beings: quite literally a washed out version of their living self. You can see and hear them, but cannot touch them. With great concentration, a ghost can manage to make themselves corporeal for up to an hour at a time, but it takes a great toll on their energy and they will fall back into their near transparent states for between 24-36 hours depending on how long they remained solid. With the help of a witch willing to cast a sacrificial spell, a ghost can achieve what is known as a 'second chance at life' with a fully corporeal form. These "new" bodies will not be the same however; they will be forever cold to the touch, like a corpse- and they will have no sensation of taste or feeling. They will simply be a solid version of their ghostly selves, able to communicate and feel emotion, but unable to feel any physical sensations or taste food.

How to kill a ghost

As ghosts are by definition dead already, this cannot be done. You can however help one to pass on by helping them complete their unfinished business and/or convincing them to let go of their grip on this plane of existence.

How to become a ghost

Quite simple really: you have to die, and refuse to pass on. Or die with unfinished business.
