How many times has this happened to you? You are out shopping like I was at Belleza when you get that telltale message in your chat window:

Fangs [Thirst::Bloodlines] 2.9: Shanel Sorbet would like to give you a Vampire bite. This will register you with The Thirst::Bloodlines system, and you’ll get a FREE pair of bite marks. If you accept the bite, you don’t have to play, and if you get bitten, you don’t have to drink a potion to undo it. Say Yes to accept!

Bite and run is what Brekke and I have been calling them. These people hang out at high traffic areas and attempt to bite others in order to increase their status on their vampire game. They do not care who they are bugging. They have no shame.

When you are biten by a member of the Thirst::Bloodlines you name is entered into the database that is run on their companion website.   There are supposed to be rules that those playing this game abide by which includes privately asking to bite you first but 9 out of every 10 of their vampires I have encountered have never asked.  This has left many landowners and residents with bad feelings toward the game and its creators as evident by the artile last year by land maven Sarah Nerd(Say NO to Bloodlines!). Sarah recently shared that the people at Thirst::Bloodlines introduced a new HUD that was supposed to cut down on these instances but I am here to say that nothing has changed.
