Many a player character has cross paths with a vampire in their eternal struggle against evil. While some were successful in vanquishing these noctural monsters, others would fall prey to their vicious fangs. 5th Edition rules have are established concerning the future of a Player Character that falls prey to the curse of vampirism (outlined above), however the loss of a character under such condistions can often bring great turmoil to a player and their party.
Therefore, I will set down a homebrewed set of optional rules on the progression of vampirism from an ordinary player character (or NPC), taking them through the stages of first affliction, through a vampire spawn to eventually becoming a fully fledged vampire. These are intened as a fun and flavourful alternative to the Rules as Written, designed to please both players and DMs in an applicable game setting.
