They can have the same char just remove the vampire part. It doesnt fit in the campaign.
Why dont they just bring in Elminster as a companion? Vampirrs are cool is not a excuse to have one in a lvl 1 campaign Thats how 10yo play RPGs. I wanna be a vampire I wanna be a ninja turtle I wanna be super mario
Maybe we get a plumber as next char since jumping is a big part of the game.
I... live! Flesh and blood and bone! I am alive! Ha-ha! I swore I would scratch and crawl my way back into the world of the living... and I have done it!
