Gaseous Form Vampires

Recommended Posts

Curious if Orlanthi wind spells would overpower a vampire's ability to move in gaseous form?

Is a vampire in gaseous form able to be hit with magical on rune metals similar to an air elemental being attacked by cutting through the air? maybe I'm not understanding how that works either, I suppose it'd be like attacking a wraith?

More so would an air elemental not be able to "bag" a vampire in gaseous form? How would the vampire attack the sylph besides possibly spells?

Thoughts and thank you.

Yes.

I think that RQ2 said that a sylph (Air Elemental) could disrupt a vampire's mist form so that it could not manifest for a day, or something.

Presumably, summoning up a wind could do the same, as could a new spell of Banish/Dispel Mist.

I normally play that they can't.

Spells such as Madness or Fear should be able to target the mist, though.

Haghlgrim's Sword, Ironbreaker, can cut a Vampire down in Mist Form, which seems to be a special ability, so maybe it could be a Humakti Gift.

Probably not, but a Kolat Shaman might be able to capture it in a Bag of Winds.

It couldn't, without manifesting.

Along the same lines, how does it work if a group of PC's target a gaseous form vampire with disruption spells or could they not?

If the vampire has no power are they immune to spirit magic or do the PC's simply need to overcome any magic points the vampire has drained from victims?

What if by chance the vampire has no magic points when the PC's find them? Would all non failing spirit magic overcome there magic point total of zero?

For me,  the answer is yes on all 3 points.

I think they can, at least that is how we played it.

Just use the Vampire's Magic Points for defending.

Zero Magic Points means the Vampire is unconscious, or zapped to nothingness. Either way it falls out of mist form.
