Vampire 5e: Ixalan & Zendikar

Vampire in 5e dnd is connected with necromancy. Their existence is predicated on reducing the life of others to fuel their existence and establishing their own lives ahead of all other concerns. Let us discuss Ixalan & Zendikar in particular. Philosophically, they do not restrain themselves with artificial rules of morality but consider that the firm can and should take what they need from the weak.

  • Ability Score Increase: Your Intelligence score rises by 1, and your Charisma score increases by 2.
  • Age. Vampires don’t mature and age in the identical way that other races do. Every living vampire is either a blood chief, affected by the Eldrazi’s influence in the distant reaches of history, or generated by a living human blood chief. Most vampires are thus very old. However, few have any memory of their earliest years.
  • Alignment:  5e Vampires have no innate tendency toward evil, but consuming the life energy of other creatures often pushes them to that end. Notwithstanding their moral bent, the strict hierarchies of their bloodchiefs incline them toward a lawful alignment.
  • Size. Vampires are about the same size and build as humans. Your size is Medium.
  • Speed. Your base walking speed is 30 feet.
  • Darkvision:  You have superior vision in dark and dim conditions. You can see in dim light within 60 feet of you as if it were bright light, and in darkness as if it were dim light. You can’t discern color in darkness, only shades of gray.
  • Vampiric Resistance. You have resistance to necrotic damage.
  • Blood Thirst. You can drain blood and life energy from a willing creature, or one grappled by you, incapacitated or restrained. Obtain a melee attack against the target, using either Strength or Dexterity for your attack roll. Suppose you hit. In that case, you deal one piercing damage and 1d6 necrotic damage. The target’s hit point maximum reduces by an amount equal to the necrotic damage taken. You retrieve hit points equal to that number. The compression lasts until the target finishes a long rest. In 5d dnd, the target dies if this effect reduces its hit point maximum to 0. A humanoid destroyed in this process becomes zero.
  • Languages. You may speak, read, and write Common and Vampire.

The Ring of Muted Light

It is a ring, rare (requires attunement)

This simple, monocolored ring that never seems to glisten is an ideal gift for your vampire lord. While wearing this ring, you can dim the light within a 15-foot cube around you.

Only darker and nonmagical light can not illuminate this area.

The Vampire Sunglasses

It is a wondrous item, rare.

The Ring of Misty Shadows

It is a very rare Ring and requires attunement by an actual vampire.

While wearing this ring, when you drop to 0 hit points in direct sunlight, the area you occupy. At the same time, your move is considered magical darkness, as if the spell darkness was cast at the 5th level. The darkness lasts for 2 hours, and once used, this ring cannot help again until the following midnight.

The Crypt Ring

It is a very rare Ring and requires attunement by an actual vampire.

A ring with a small compartment in its silver head, containing a small part of your coffin-like structure such as a piece of stonework, a chunk of wood, or compressed dirt. While worn with a part of your coffin-like structure placed here, this ring teleports you back to your coffin-like design when you are reduced to 0 hit points unharmed. Once used, this ring cannot help again until the following midnight.

The Ring of Dracula

It is an artifact Ring and requires attunement by an actual vampire.

This magnificent ring was said to have been worn by the famed Dracula himself. The eons he wore it took on the magical properties as his powerful unnatural presence warped it. The ring is covered in a layer of gold, its black obsidian material becoming evident in the engravings that adorn it. At its crown sits a crimson gem that radiates status and nobility. While wearing this ring, you gain the following benefits:

You no longer possess any of the weaknesses a vampire in 5e dnd has and are immune to the effects of sunlight.
