Good idea Simon.
btw, I played a Vampire one night when we just goofed off playing a
bunch of Ogres and a vampire attacking the village in the Money Tree
adventure that came with RQIII. I took a spear to the chest that
disabled me in the cornfield, but thought I was saved because an
Ogre then took out the farmer that got me. Turns out the player was
about as dumb as his ogre because he didn't know to pull the spear
out and I"d be okay again. He just walked off and left me to fume
the rest of the night!
So much for my vampire experience. :)
