I am not sure what it is about Texas, but there are a hell of a lot of vampires out here. Evidently there are even gargantuan bug like vampires called primordials that are older than dirt and more powerful then a full vampire hive.
Let’s back this up a bit. Chastity came to me to tell me she has been having dreams that something is coming to attack/tap the well. I gathered everyone else and we listened again and the elders of the town agreed to take it serious. So I called out Pazo for healing and shotguns and Kylo for his combat experience.
We waited for four days and nothing came. Meanwhile the diner is doing great and Chastity had some sort of religious ceremony with her and her kid. It looked sort of like a pagan/wiccan thing, but something was there. I couldn’t see it, but I could see the well reacting to it.
The fifth not is when shit hit the fan. Three people entered the town on foot at night. One of them immediately headed towards the well at full speed, so I started unloading lightning bolts at him. I completely realize this could end badly for someone innocent, but it just felt wrong. Turns out I was right.
I hit him square several times, it did seem to damage, but he should have been dead with the first hit. I needed to stop him so I charged out after him, while everyone else was engaging the other two vampires.
Evidently a second vampire got to the well while I was fighting with the first one. He stabbed some sort of spear like item into the ground an the whole park lit up like it was on fire. The vampire shifted into some hideous creature creature over ten feet tall, all bug-like with proboscis and a temper.
We were fortunate, it charged at the other vampires while we eventually were able to destroy it. The night ended with us being fixed up, and all the vampires being burned… Oh and Kylo, Paz and I covered in vampire juice which stinks far worse then any skunk.
We also talked with Hunter, Jess and Chastity and realized that the previous vampires were not due to that human we killed. There was something outside of town directing vampires in, trying to mutate them into primordial versions. It means we have to keep an eye on things closer, we can’t allow that to happen.
In addition, it seems that the lightning not nearly as effective, so I am going to learn sunbolt, which shoots bolts of sunlight so hot its like a welder’s torch and effects almost anything. That will be nice and effective.
I was able to offset the stink after awhile, I remembered I had remove smell spell in my books, I just hadn’t ever used it for anything, just as a spring board to work on some harder air spells. Evidently even my little spells come in handy.
Finally got back into Austin, got the books for sunbolt and talked with Piper. Realized I could use my tracking magic to find where the original script it was written from was when it was written, it might allow me to track down old tomes that have less errors and are worth a lot of money on the open market.
What I learned was that vampires are being directed by something else, sunbolt is more effective on vampires, and I might be able to make more money with magic then I ever realized. This doesn’t even include that I know spells I didn’t even realize that are effective.
