Conversion Experience: David Reid

Day Men #1
Boom! Studios; July 2013; $3.99

For thousands of years, the world has been controlled by the “50 Families” - a secret network of vampire covens engaged in a timeless struggle for power. But when the sun rises, the vampires are forced to employ the services of a human who acts as their daytime fixer and protector. Trained for centuries to be the mortal soldiers of their vampire employers, the Day Men go forth at sunrise, alone into the world, to do the bidding of their sleeping benefactors.

     In this first issue we meet David Reid, the new Day Man of the Virgo family. We don't learn much about David beyond his profession and combat capabilities, but with that basic information a Fate Accelerated conversion is possible.

High Concept: Day Man of the Virgo family
Trouble: I will spend the rest of my life bathed in blood
Other Aspects: I was trained by Blackwill, Casey Kennedy is my breakfast buddy

Careful: +1
Clever: +1
Flashy: +2
Forceful: +2
Quick: +3
Sneaky: +0

Ancestral Weapon of the Virgos
     Because I wield the Ancestral Weapon of the Virgos, I get a +2 when I Quickly attack opponents in combat.

     Because I know that fighting vampires is all about Anticipation, I get an extra shift when I am successful with an attack. This stunt can be invoked for free once per scene.

     One more stunt can be taken without reducing stress.

  1. I'm thinking I've got a pretty good bead on this guy's alignment. LOL

    1. I'm a sucker (ha!) for vampires, so I had to pick this title up. It should be interesting to see how Mr. Reid fares in a war between vampires.

    3. (My spelling sucks today!)

      Don't you mean war between . . . Day Men? ;)

    4. Yes, it looks like there will be a battle between the Day Men as well. Lots of intestines should fly in future issues. :)
