I agree that dolls are creepy, especially those human-ish ones that only need to move to be alive. Also, doesn't the Mona Lisa painting have eyes that follow you too? There are more eyes in the world than you know.
Reminds me of a creepy doll story I read where someone moves into an apartment alone. Then they find a doll sitting on the windowsill. As years go by, they like the doll more (cause it looked pretty). Even though the doll seemed a bit weird. If it was put somewhere other than the windowsill, or moved to face a direction different than that of the window; it would be back to its original place and position by morning (no matter what time the person woke up at) even though no one else was there to move the doll. The person blamed their poor memory though and dismissed this. When the person wanted to move out to a different apartment for their job, they decided to bring the doll along since it had no owner previously and they liked it. When the person was unpacking at their new place, the box that had the doll was violently shaking, but it stopped when it was opened. Then at night, they heard screeching sounds and woke up to see the doll in a mad furry. The doll then broke the window and flew away on strong winds. By morning the doll was in the old apartment's windowsill, facing outside from the very same room. Whenever the person ended up passing through the street, they would feel malicious stares at their back. The story was something like this. It brings me shivers sometimes.
By the way, I also met a witness in the past that says the Mona Lisa's eyes (painted) indeed follow you around as though they're alive.
That's a frightening monster!!
Woah! I searched and found that doll's eyes is the poisonous white baneberry, something I never knew! Yeah evidence is piling up, let me add to this dark evidence of eyes and dolls. The fake Wistful Painting apparently closes its eyes during the night. Better not have that in your house. Creepy.
I'm not a fan of spiders either. Imagining one of those big and furry spiders with 8 big eyes just staring at you. I'm sure if anyone stayed for more than one day staring at a spider in a barren room, they'ed go crazy. It wouldn't just be paranoia. They'd probably see 8 reflections of their own face, just tinted in the color of the spiders eyes. Did you know that there are 50 000 spider species (or more) in the world? And 25 of those are poisonous. I would not want to be in a situation where I have to be staring at an 8 eyed spider, especially if it's poisonous.
I did not know about that accident. My condolences for your friend. At least you know what happened to him (better than not knowing). Police who don't fully investigate a case/evidence brought to them are bad police who don't deserve their job.
We're definitely doomed if other spider species do the same as those in Peru. Good thing spiders aren't as intelligent as humans (I think). Yeah, certainly many spiders have fangs. Now that you mention it, vampires do have fangs like spiders.Perhaps vampires have species too. There must be spider vampires, bat vampires, and maybe even snake vampires!! I would imagine there are vampires hidden in our society surviving on blood other than that of human blood. I wonder what they would eat to survive? Maybe those vampires don't live in human society, but in the wild camouflaged with spider/bat/snake species.
Without doubt, this is a deep, and dark conspiracy.
Actually, I'm 100% glad that jumping spiders aren't the size of cats. Our world would be dominated by spiders eventually if that was the case. Ragworms have the smallest brain ever discovered on this Earth. Also, did you know that leeches have 32 brains each. Bugs and insects surly have an interesting, abnormal variety; but I'm without doubt not their fan, and I wish they stay as they are without mutating to larger sizes.
I knew politicians were not normal people, to think they're a vampire species after all. It seems to make sense, especially considering their diet. It's good that you don't know much vampire sasquatches, because sometimes ignorance is a bliss. Still, rumors are quite useful when push comes to shove in this world.
I'll remember your words, and if you happen to be murdered, I'll spread the truth. Stay strong to the bitter end! Don't lose your life trying to find info about this deep & dark conspiracy. The info is no use if someone tracks, kidnaps, and murders you. Is anyone (any vampire) on your trail?
Actually, doctors of history used leeches for bloodletting (sucking blood out of bodies) because of their ability to suck blood. Which in turn actually helped in some treatments. The oldest recorded use of leeches is said to be from ancient Greece and Eygpt. I doubt they knew leeches had 32 brains at that time (otherwise, they might have tried training them). Is there a reason you are particular about moths? Or is it just your instinct?
You are certainly taking many measures! You have probably gained minimum safety from vampire danger. However, you must keep in mind that those measures don't work on every vampire species out there. From any enemy you could get, you got the Illuminati Vampires. They're a tough enemy. Apparently the Illuminés sect reached France in 1623. You would guess those Illuminati vampires worked with that sect. Eventually that sect gained power in France in 1722.
Truly, a fascinating and deep conversation!
I don't mind, but what do you mean by padded walls?
Oh no! Good thing you're still alive today. That's a scary experience. Especially if it was a poisonous, and fanged Illuminati vampire spider. Hopefully it wasn't strong or large enough to wear a human adult sized glove.
Ah, that's good to hear!
Part of the Egyptians history is blank, or covered under infinite sands. They for sure cut some parts out so that the world wouldn't know about it. Yeah, the sad swastika is now banned instead.
I am afraid so, the Illuminati Vampires were perhaps here living on Earth all along. No wonder they have a legend, they're ancient. Not only the Illuminati Vampires, but all Vampire species too!
That does sound suspicious, but they could've had their reasons, that Roman cult. Not that I would know their reasons anyways (whether they were good or bad).
For protecting yourself, I think your measures are okay so far. But you can add carrying a little poison vial with you so if a vampire catches you, you can somehow apply the poison to them and that might end them. You can also carry smoke bombs or paralyzing smoke bombs to blast them if you fear being surrounded by a big group of them. Secretly carrying a sharp dagger around could help too (though temporarily only because Vampire species are known to heal quickly and grow their limbs back fast, still a dagger injury could hold them back for a bit giving you time to escape). These methods don't work all the time either. After doing as much as you can, it's up to you and fate. Also, someone told me if you play the following video in your house 3 times, it can protect your house from evil (the vampires after you) for a week or 3 days. I can't remember the time of effectiveness. Oh, and it's called Surat Albaqara, it's like great music of another language. You can copy the link to a new page if you're interested. It really works
Although it seems mysterious how your acquaintance disappeared, I'm sure he was silenced by someone. Do you know where he kept his research material? Maybe you can take hold over his findings before someone makes those disappear as well. Police are not to be trusted in this situation, specifically for the true reasons you stated.
You're right, that cult was perhaps corrupted after all.
That's a cool ability, to be favored by snakes and be on an agreement with them. However, you might not want to get the venom of any vampire specied snake because vampires might have a slight immunity to it. If you can find a snake not from a vampire species, that would be ideal. But if you can't, then find a snake that's the least related to the strong vampire family blood. You can tell by how big their fangs are.
For the dagger, one made of steel (could be stainless steel if you can afford it) and has carbon mixed in would be better than iron, gold, or silver as those are brittle compared to steel (especially in weaponry). Beauty is irresistible, but haven't you heard the saying "stranger danger" when you were younger? You should NEVER trust strangers just like that! You're even having strange dreams. That's definitely because you're possessing that mysterious relic. I would say if you overlook little changes in your life, you might regret it later when it becomes something huge affecting you. Anyways, at least you noted it, so you're on the right path of watching over and protecting yourself. You can either get rid of that obsidian dagger, or seal it up somewhere. The strange dreams might stop after.
Yeah, it does sound holy. By the way, I did some searching and if you play the recorded video one time in the house, evil stays away for 3 days. This is the real prescription. The praying mantis...I don't know, not that it would make a difference as far as I know, but you can keep one/some around if you want.
Sorry it took me too long to reply!! Time in this world plays tricks.
Too bad about that researcher. It's either those back alley dark dealers that got him paranoid, or some life-threatening monster that attacked him and created this trauma of anything that comes close to him. He's gone now, not much we can do to find him/his corpse or research.
Sometimes risks need too be taken to find facts. Good luck on your venomous experiment. Just don't die (or try your best not to), because those vampires have great pride in themselves and can get extra-vicious if they feel insulted. That's true! Gaboon Vipers do have the longest fangs. You see, they also keep all their poison under their jaw. Generally, to tell if a snake is venomous or not, you look at the head and see if it's triangular. If it is, then that one has venom.
Also true! Silver (now that you mention it) is said to be effective against the supernatural. However, compared to steel, it's brittle. Maybe you can have two daggers (and be double safe); one of silver, and one of steel incase one doesn't work. Yes, German Chemist Justus Von Liebig is stated to be the one responsible for making the first silver backed mirror. Later though they stopped making it and began using metal mercury instead since it spread out more evenly. Cool! I never knew that silver nitrate was used to make photographic films. I always wondered what those films were made of.
What has happened, happened. Nothing we can do about that except dealing with it for a better planned future (if time doesn't play tricks). I'm happy that you tried to be rid of the blade once, but the outcome surely is sad. At least you tried. Try sealing it in a box then burying it deep under ground, then see if anything's done by the blade after. Make sure the box has many locks to secure it/seal it properly. Do you know any other way to seal daggers, or get rid of them? Try finding the mysterious stranger that gave you this cursed item.
Nothing happens, you can't overdose from listening to that. Though the ideal is once every 3 days until danger of attackers passes, but you're safe to listen as much as you want to Surat Albaqara. If the praying mantis you bring can make friends (and not be eaten) with your snake buddies, should not be a problem to have it around. It can even eat spiders & vampire spiders for you, so might as well.
If you are bored you can try and learn the morse-code on morse.withgoogle.com/learn/, or you can read the 1000+ paged book called "The Count of Monte Cristo" by Alexandre Dumas (it's actually a really good story!!) if you haven't read it already.
That's what I did when I was bored. Though the morse-code is not used anymore, you can always gain more knowledge. Plus, I'm sure a co-authored storygame made by 2 newbies will not be the best.
Ah, true. Sleeping is certainly a third of the human life. For the two thirds their life, people are awake and living (assuming they don't have special circumstances). When people are awake they spend 30% of their time talking. The rest of time is as spend 45% listening, 16% reading, and 9% writing. Though these numbers are average and definatly not constant. For example: CYStians surely spend more than 16% and 9% of their time reading and writing (if not 90% of their time). Even so these percentages give you an idea of how much time of their life that people spend talking.
I was mistaken. The triangular head doesn't work all the time to specify a venomous snake from one that isn't. You have many friendly snakes around, I'm sure you'll be okay. Do any of the snakes around you come along when you go out? Like in your bag, or in a vented handy box. I'm happy to know that the snakes and praying mantises are on agreement. If only they had you during the middle ages in Europe, you could've helped some people survive. The Bubonic Plague (Black Death) had killed half a country with only vermin. You're about to witness snakes and mantises prevent a future vermin brought plague from spreading and killing half another country with another plague. It's a front seat you should treasure.
Well mirrors backing used to use silver, then mercury, then tin-mercury amalgam, and today they use heated aluminum. I think today's mirrors are useless against vampires as they most likely lost their full effect through their updates. Cinnabar is a red beauty, deep in color like blood. You can definetly set it up as a trap for those blood thirsty vampires. You can have a lighter close to it so you can start the fire whenever needed, and perhapse place the cinnabar on a pile of dry hay/grass that ignites quickly. As for mercury bombs, I'm not so sure. Mercury used to be part of Chinese medicine (though not too much). It might not be that effective. On the other hand is a Zinc Chloride Smoke Bomb that can leave someone paralyzed for 4 days. You can give both a shot and decide.
The stranger that gave you the possessive dagger might not even be a person after all. After knowing a bit more about your situation, I think your fears may be in place. Perhapse the demon dwelling in that obsidian dagger may be looking for someone worthy to posses it. As for the stranger; he could've been the previous owner that failed to make a contract and control the dagger's sealed demon, or he could be a hologram made by the dagger's demon to have you take it. That would explain why the back alley regular thought the stranger just disappeared. Also, those dreams you've been having when the dagger is near you could be the demon's attempt at contacting you. It will be dangerous, but if you can make a contract during your strange dream, things might clear up with the dagger. It may not be so bad after all.
I think that happened when I kept pressing tab and the words got highlighted. Nice catch!
EDIT: I thought I put in the missing word earlier, oh well
Surprisingly snakes have interesting personalities! Especially that outgoing anaconda, people will definitely freak out if she suddenly hugs them (especially if she does it tightly). I'm sure though that she has no malicious intentions behind it, she just wants to express her love to others (in a good way). As for the bacteria responsible for the plague, it's not even capable of understanding love without killing societies in the process (and still not understand in the end). I did not know of the other two tragic plagues that the Bubonic Plague bacteria caused. However, I do know that the despicable smallpox killed 90% of the natives in both Americas in less than a year. Unlike the Yersinia pestis that existed since 3800 B.C., the variola virus that causes smallpox existed for only about 3000 years. There are many things that plague humans including the bacterias and Vampires, but people just don't seem to notice (until it's too late of course).
My friend, I certainly see how Vampires have dawned on this planet for longer than we can imagine. I actually always doubt metadata and the media/news too. Today's world is sadly corrupt from within, even without the Vampires. Although there are people with their mind and honor out there (encountering one is rare). Regretfully it's not possible to tell if an image was photoshopped, or if a video was edited to remove the important/supernatural parts (unless you have really advanced technology, which I don't). Propaganda is a deadly weapon. It was even used by the German and Canadian governments to lead many people to their demise unknowingly.
I haven't heard of this What We Do in the Shadows, I'll certainly look into it as it seems like important evidence. Actually, it would be good if more people heard your rant and started thinking/observing their own daily lives, because as you said, society has become blind. I'm not sure if cinnabar is effective against jiangshi. They're an interesting breed between zombies and vampires (if jiangshi was not both of their ancestor that is). They have a paper seal on their face don't they? Can they really see colors and fall for the protective trap? We need to figure some defense against these jumping vampires, without doubt they're stronger than your average vampire species out there. If you use zinc in your smoke bomb with chloride, it increases the negative impact against the enemy.
You see dear friend, demons don't necessarily like being out in the open in the middle of public spaces. They seem vicious, but some demons actually despise humans for mistreatment by them (and don't want to be near them). Also, not everyone is capable of seeing and feeling a demon possessed dagger. You might have the sixth sense of sensing the supernatural. Or it may be that it approached you because it happened to see your efforts in searching and making defenses against vampires, that now it wants to help. I think it wants to help you for some reason or another.
Children are truly more open minded and responsible at times. Actually unlike viruses, Vampires are considered living as their cells reproduce quickly when they are injured. Also, they all need to consume something to stay alive (whether it's electricity, money, or blood). They can speak languages without doubt, and they can transform to different creatures so they have a working brain.
Why people don't consider long term consequences is because they desire immediate benefit (just like what you said). But then innocent natives die, and the bumble bee species also declines! And not only the bumble bee species, approximately 20 000 other bee species are in decline due to the honey bee's unjust domination. Another long term consequence that people didn't consider in the past is Global Warming. Though they are dealing with it now by making electric cars and attempting to use reusable/recyclable materials, it's not enough yet.
It's not hard to create mob mentalities these days. Perhaps the Vampires in the media input a hypnosis technique into their posts/words/news. Countries that we know are affected by Vampires so far are: Germany, Canada, U.S., China, Europe (and maybe France). These countries ether had many conspiracies, strange sects, sighted vampires, or caused invasions and propaganda. I think these governments might have secret labs where they captured some vampires and forced them to use their powers in communicating with other species and hypnosis to attempt taking over the world. I know that there are some good vampires out there that wish to make friends with other species (including humans) and don't want to kill/harm needlessly. Though these types of vampires are surely a minority. My friend, I'm afraid that world governments are certainly part of a worldwide conspiracy.
Roofs were never safe. Even if your under them, they can relay damage to you. They break under 1 inch diametered hail, they fly away with tornado winds at 166-200 mph, they keep fire smoke inside, and they leak water at times. Still, they're better than having no roof. They just need modifications, and maybe slightly high fences that prevent people from getting the high place phenomena. Certainly being proactive has its benefits. "Better be safe than sorry", might as well set up the cinnabar trap, and a rope trap to capture any jiangshi that attempts invading your house. Invasive species are everywhere nowadays.
I don't think that demons and vampires are related, would you say that apples and oranges are related? Probably not. Just that they are both juicy fruits with peels. As for vampires and demons, they're both living supernatural beings that can communicate. Otherwise, there are no relations. Just like how some humans are at odds with one another, so are other species. Moose males fight each other to the death so they can lead the herd. Perhaps the demon wants to help you because it has some history with vampires. Also, you are the only person I know making an effort (other than that researcher acquaintance of yours), which is better than no effort. Though the experiment shows that the dagger has a bad aura, doesn't mean there's no chance that it can do good or change in the future.
You are correct, sensationalism and propaganda are indeed responsible for the decline in native bee species. They make it seem like nothing important, and that honey bees are what only matters. Talking about non-renewable resources, plastic is the evil lead in this. In fact, there are 5 plastic waste islands just floating in the oceans. Indeed, solar panels are a double edged sword. I never knew about this disgusting exodus affair. People who just find any opportunity to make profits through other's bad times, they're corrupted from the core. Just like Ephialtes of Trachis who betrayed the Greek during their war against the Persians.
Perhaps other Vampires just don't know about this awful crime, or they can't do anything about it. If many come together, we can certainly attempt to free the captured vampires. We'll have to find a safe place to hide or make a base somewhere where the government doesn't have much power or spies. I wonder if such a place can be found?
I actually don't doubt you as I came across this witch determining method before. It was used during the Dark Ages of Europe to figure out women who were witches. However, I know some innocents fell victim to treacherous haters who wanted to be rid of those who oppose them. About a 1000 died in Europe as witches. Wether or not they really were witches, life was peaceful before the Dark Ages. Are all witches evil (because I doubt so)?
Yes, if we can make an alliance with literate jiangshi, we will have a very powerful ally on our side against the government. If we can make some communication with the people fighting the good fight, we can probably gain more strong allies. It seems that this dark conspiracy involves more species than I expected. I think that griffins and dragons have a hand in this too. Though they are hidden pretty well in this world. This conspiracy might have played a role in the dinosaurs extinction more than 65 million years ago.
If the government is not a threat, I'm sure half the world would be happier than they are now. For example Sudan and the Republic of of Congo that live in a dictatorship toady. Greed itself is an evil spirit I must say. It even lead Caligula, Emperor of Rome to weaken his own empire in order to fulfill his selfishness. I can see how those cannibalistic urges happen when greed's involved.
I would not want to be possessed by wendigo, that would not be good. Campuses truly are full of spies. The catacombs are full of the dead, not exactly ideal, and as you said easy to get lost in. I'm considering Gouffre Mirolda in France as it's one of the top 5 deepest caves on Earth (1,733 meters). But unless we make a map for ourselves, we'll get lost. We can also create/dig out a hiding place in the Sahara dessert or in the Arctic. Though both places have extreme weather, barely anyone goes there. And no one will suffer if we dig a hiding place underground and insualate our building. Hmmm...
I heard that they would how witches in water to if they float because some believed witches are made of wood.True, what makes a witch a witch seems subjective across different types of people. Do you think Dragons can transform shapes like Vampires? If they can, that would explain why some jewelers are so in love with their products, they don't want to sell them; or why some jewelers like to wear so much accessories. But if that's not the case, then maybe Dragons are the reason why some mountain travelers or planes go missing. Dragons apparently like dwelling in mountain caves and/or clouds.
How's everyone doing on this thread? I hope the thread in Newbie Central doesn't scare you too much given your fears.
I would say we're living and doing well.
Nah, might as well knock yourselves out at this point.
No need to feel too bad about it. We can stop anytime, and put this in the back of our memories.
