    Default New Vampire Race lore is a joke

    Seriously, I am fine with it being a promotion, and SC fluff, but at least have some pride in the game to use the existing lore and come up with something better...like I did, in 10 minutes of boredom at work. At this point Sony can have it for free:

    ===


    Origins of the Freeblood

    Like many of the great changes that have come to sweep over Norrath, the origins of the
    Freeblood vampires lie interestingly enough in the actions of a handful of ambitious adventurers. When
    the noble Koada’dal Marcus Thex, a champion of the mysterious Freethinkers was discovered in the
    depths of the Evernight Abbey; he had been made into that which he had sworn to destroy. Cursed with
    the existence he and his Freethinker companions had so valiantly fought, the valiant Koada’dal battled
    with the desperate urge to end his own existence. Such a valiant spark of life cannot easily be stamped
    out though, even when shrouded in darkness. Unlike some thralls of Mistmoore, Marcus still held the
    gift given to all the creations of the Gods; the gift of choice. Thus Marcus became the first vampire
    champion of the Freethinkers, bringing light to the darkness and setting an example of hope and valor
    for those around him.

    Though cursed to carry on his fight in the shadows, Marcus was regarded as the champion he had
    always been by his Freethinker comrades. Though there were those among the Freethinkers who looked
    at the more practical elements of Marcus’ “affliction”; they saw it as an opportunity to use Mayong’s
    very gift against him and his ilk. Despite his acceptance of his own cursed existence, Marcus abhorred
    the idea of allowing anyone to share in his cursed immortality. Nonetheless many of the Freethinkers,
    particularly the more youthful and some would say foolhardy, volunteered to be “turned” by Marcus
    Thex. The enthusiasm and compassion of some touched Marcus’ spirit, yet also touched on some dark
    urge that resided within him. So it was that the sun set on a group of young Freethinkers, and the night
    embraced them. It was within that same group that one young woman jokingly coined the name for the
    newly born vampires; “Freeblood”.

    The Freebloods proved themselves to be worthy of their gift, earning a reputation for bravery and
    ferocity in dealing with the abominations the Freethinkers continued to fight in the shadows of Norrath.
    Vampire fought vampire on a level playing ground and even Marcus began to lose doubt in his decision
    to allow this. Despite this, not all were comfortable to fight side by side with vampires. Though the
    Freethinkers had become more well known and their deeds celebrated by fellow champions of Qeynos
    and Kelethin, even the most tolerant were reluctant to accept the Freebloods. Some worried that they
    would succumb to the urges typical to their kind, while others argued that they were different from the
    unnatural creatures the Freethinkers hunted and their sacrifice was something noble and to be admired.
    Ultimately the Freebloods expanded both within and outside of the Freethinker ranks; becoming a
    powerful presence in the world of Norrath. As with Lord Marcus Thex, the Freeblood vampires were
    beings with the ability to choose their path. As these new vampires spread, many chose to forge their
    own path outside of the Freethinkers; though they continued to identify themselves by the name Freeblood.

    Thus the Norrathian cities were faced with an odd dilemma, as vampires of other factions who had
    rebelled against the designs of their makers flocked to the freedom this new group represented. The
    vampire had stepped out of the shadows and into the cities, taverns, and inns of Norrath.

    This is awesome...and it only took 10 minutes. I mean come on SoE....your players can come up with better storylines and not even getting paid for it. This makes way more sense than the lore you bozos came up with. It's nice you offered it for free, but man, you should get some kind of compensation! /thumbs up
