None, I do not like to be bitten.

I'm going with Werewolf but Im more partial to Werebears (had a werebear berserker in 4e that was a LOT of fun to play). Plus vampires are just too limiting.

I was thinking about being bitten by some Sunite maid, but... Elf would also be sufficient ;)

Gotta vote vampire because everyone knows werewolves aren't real.

In all honesty though, I'd seek to be a weretiger.

I have a dream that one day, all game worlds will exist as one.

I'd opt for a vampiric Lady Hooded One.

Vampire because I would probably survive (depending on the particular vampire mythos) and sometimes it is portrayed as being pleasurable somehow? (Vampire magic or something in them?) If its a "kill" vampire who are wholly evil it'd be hard to say. Vampire mythologies, especially modern mythologies,are so varied it would depend on the particular "rules" applied to them.

A werewolf would probably kill me... and i'd be infected with lycanthropy myself...??

I find werewolves a "sexier" idea though. Vibrantly and super alive versus a walking corpse...

I voted werewolf, but I rather werecat, Chaotic Good, more urban enviroment friendly, and the least like Lycanthrope to be murder by a terrorified mob. After all would you get pitchforks over some who turned into a small cat and was magically compeled to be good?

You guys are all a bunch of Realmsian PERVERTS, LOL!!!! Can't I be bitten by both? I played a Fianna Bruja abomination in White Wolf years ago, and he was a lot of fun to play. He was a suicidal and reckless teenager named Richard, who eventually ended up burnt to a crisp when our party's were-croc used his "midnight sun" power in a battle with a bunch of vampiric were-jackals on the African savanna at night. "Poor Richard" got caught in the radius. I later learned that the croc (the DM's NPC "party leader") had done it on purpose to kill him along with the jackals. He planned to kill our entire party. I never played with him again, but the game was pretty fun up to that point. I had the best of BOTH worlds! And no fleas....

Hmm, a werevert? That might work.

I'm currently developing a drow (male) shade/fey'ri (yes I know that'st meant to apply to gold elves, but I prefer it to tiefling). He's going to be a follower of the Masked Lady. He's not a vamp or lycan, but I figure since we're throwing out ideas I'd include mine.

I have a dream that one day, all game worlds will exist as one.

I always wanted to play in the World of Darkness, and I even had several different characters ready to go -- my gaming group kept making plans to play in WoD, but they kept falling thru. I had a khan, a Glass Walker Ragabash (big surprise, I'm sure), and a kinfolk cat burglar NSA agent (Project Twilight) ready to go, and I was working on a mokole...

Given all that, and my creation of a werecat Lord of Waterdeep, I guess I gotta go with werewolves for this one.

If we can pick things that aren't one of the two choices offered...I think werebears would be the "hottest"...

Why do I see this degenerating into something akin to the "Vampire vs. Lycan" movies?

Anyway, good to be back and favoring a ranger at heart, I voted for the wolf. After watching Twilight with my nieces, the whole idea of vampires just got ruined. Damn Ann and Stephanie to every one of the hells....

Good Hunting!

Heh, the poll should have offered "sparkly vampires" and "regular vampires" as options. Then again, who would choose the former?

Werewolf, because werewolves still possess body heat, and that for me is very important. Don't want to be a werewolf forever, though. When I get tired of "bodily pleasures," I'd want to be a lich.

Every beginning has an end.
