Vampires have roamed the world for ages, a steady line of ancient demons passing their bloodthirst on to their successors - most losing their precious immortality at the hands of those very same successors. One vampire, however, has put an end to this self-destructive cycle. Ancient beyond measure, he has hand-picked his children from among the centuries and bound them to a common cause. For now a hunter with their blood stalks their daylight resting places and their rule over the night is in danger of being broken. Once loners and rebels, the vampires joined together to face this unprecedented threat.
The ancient one hoarded many dark, powerful items over the years, talismans that would lend his children vast and ancient power. The younger vampires took them, drinking in their strength like blood, less human with every breath.
The vampires stalked out into the night, bringing death to meet their enemies.

Gem of Souls
The Gem is a wild card that sometimes does nothing (if you don't kill an enemy character) and sometimes sets up amazing situations for you.
Most of the time the Phylactery does nothing, but when it comes through and gives you multiple extra lives, it seems incredibly powerful.
The extra healing power of the Vial is a great help to Cornelius, Ambrosia, and Vanessa, but Cain actually likes to fight at low hit points and the Marquis probably gains enough health from his innate ability.
Ambrosia is notorious for liking the Tomes, but every Vampire enjoys their life draining ability.
Ring of Curses
You have to get hit to trigger the effect of the ring, so it's probably best on a life gaining character such as Ambrosia, Vanessa, or the Marquis.
