Slash'EM. Tell me how -- how -- does a vampire get killed by a vampire bite? OK -- it is considered poison, which is even more odd to me. Vampires are not alive and not adversely affected by poison. The only way a vampire can be killed by the bite of another vampire is drain it of all of its blood.

I am not sure if I want this question answered. May be more of a gripe/complaint/venting... was going to start a "Discussion" under Vampire (starting character) page, but decided it may not be appropriate there.

I was running from and angry shopkeeper, trying to get back my Bat from Hell (and most of my armor) from a water nymph, dodging a wraith (without an enchanted weapon), digging with my pick axe to move from level to level to avoid the aformentioned. . . only to walk into "I'm afraid the posion was deadly." (or whatever it says) -- when about to strike the final blow to that darned nymph! Grr.

But I guess as real as NetHack and Slash'EM is in roguelikeville, I guess they are not entirely real. I *was* quaffing potions -- something which vampires cannot do -- ingest anything but blood.  ;) :-)
