Just read your changes to the Vampire page. Look at this quote from the Dwarf Fortress Talk #18 transcript.
"Yeah. I mean, your fortress should eventually get marked as a death trap if you keep murdering your migrants and then since you'll have no one come to your fortress your vampires would start to slow down. They don't ever die from not drinking, they just get really slow. If they're at maximum slowness they might still be better overall than a regular dwarf in terms of their combat abilities and stuff because they have resistance to damage and higher attributes and stuff like that. There's not really a reason not to do it. I mean, you would have an evil fort, it would be bad to be a vampire. I guess you'd be more immune to zombie attacks because the zombies wouldn't attack your vampires."
I think he is implying that vampires won't slow down if they can regularly feed on other dwarfs. --GoldenShadow 20:05, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
- I'm pretty sure they slow down from both not drinking alcohol and not drinking blood, independently. The blood part won't help with the alcohol part. (Though really, dwarf blood has to be at least five proof.) Chaos 20:19, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
