ok well i was looking at the vampire count page on the GW site and was reading though all the blood lines and such then i moved on to zacharias the everliving and this is were i found the srew up. zacharias being from the necrarch blood line (if not disregard this post) drank dragon blood which would mean he is a blood dragon not a necrarch right?
errrm, no, i can see your point but its not like that.
think of the bloodlines as familys or jobs, you are borne into the blood drgons so your a blood dragon, or into necrarch, so your one of them, he may have drank a dragon but that doesnt change him, just because a black man may be a knight does that make him a Black knight?? lol.

Yeah, I think BrotherAzriel is right there. It's more of an unfortunate choice of words than a mistake.
Besides, you don't become a Blood Dragon Vampire by drinking a Dragon's blood - you become a Blood Dragon Vampire by being turned into one by another Blood Dragon Vampire.
Any vampire could have a bit of a snack on Dragon Blood once they were a Vampire, but that doesn't mean they change 'class', for lack of a better term.
I can see where you're coming from, though; now that you point it out, it is quite an odd and potentially confusing bit of background.
They are right, the name Blood Dragon has nothing to do with dragon's blood. It's just the name of that paricular vampire line.
Also, please take a moment to read the forum rules (link available in my sig) on the use of capitalisation. Thanks

The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.
I do agree with the others. The blood of a dragon just would mean that the vampire no longer craves blood, not that he is of the Blood Dragon bloodline. A vampire bloodline each have specific traits that will be passed onto a 'get' from their 'master'. Thus it is in the blood, and not in the vampire's actions that will determine their bloodline.
alright next up if the first of the vampire lords are so legendary and tough and also being vampires should they not still be alive. like ushoran he wa kill i single combat by a orc warlord.i though vampires could never be killed
Not to be rude or anything, but it will be a lot easier for everyone if you use a little more punctuation in your posts. Skarsgard asked you to check out the forum rules before, and they do mention something about proper spelling and punctuation. Like so;In reply to your question, I don't really know. Theoretically, Vampires are immortal, but it wouldn't make things very fun if that were really true. I mean, if Vampires were immortal, the Empire in the Old World wouldn't exist any more.Originally Posted by Forum Rules
I'm stretching my memory here, but wasn't one of the Von Carstein Vampires stopped at the very gates to the main city of the Empire at some point?
However, I guess 'Immortal' is open to interpretation. It is claimed that, if you can get a Vampire's Ashes (I think they crumble to ash when they die or something) and put it in a Black Coach, and feed souls or blood to that coach for a certain length of time, then the Vampire will be revived.
So that's technically immortality. Sure, you have to be carried about in a coffin as you grow yourself a new body, but you'll come back eventually.
I guess it's similar to Daemons and the like. They're technically immortal, but if you bash them hard enough they go back to the Warp or wherever they came from. So my guess is, Vampires work in a similar way. Bash them enough and they 'die' until they can muster the strength to get back to moving about in the real world again.
Also (drawing a reference to Highlander here) just because you're immortal doesn't mean that you're invulnerable. They might live forever, sure, but not if they're killed at some point.
As to immortality, vampires are not immortal. It just seems that way because of their 'powers', ages and that. They can all be killed, sometimes in the easiest of ways. It is just that the strongest of their kind are able to survive great wounds that would kill basically anything else and the reputed ability to be reborn after death in a Black Coach (or like Mannfred to have your bones and a necromancer to cast a certain spell over you - fifth edition 'Undead' book has this piece in it [was attacked by Gotrek and Felix] ).
Even the greatest of any kind can be slain, look at Lord Kroak. A 1st Gen Slann but was ultimately killed, even if his spirit remains he is technically dead. So, just because someone or something is strong, it does not mean that it is immortal and can never be slain. Everything has its weakness.
