+ Template +
Thirsty vampires look mostly like they did in life except for their short fangs, tiny claws and pale skin, however it is obvious just by looking that they are nothing more than mindless bloodsuckers. They sniff, scamper, hiss, crawl, ect. as if they were some primitive animal. They usually only use their summon bat ability to send the bat out and find if their is fresh blood. The transformation has greatly weakened the body but slightly increased agility.

Blood Drain (Ex): Upon A successful grapple check a thirsty vampire will start doing 1d2 temporary con damage each round.
Summon Bat (Sp): Once per day a thirsty vampire may summon a small, insectivorous, bat as a first level sorcerer. (see MM)
Blood Thirst (Ex): If a thirsty vampire goes for an entire day without drinking blood, it loses one point of charisma. This process is referred to as drying. Every day it goes without blood it loses another point of charisma. At 0 charisma it shrivels up and turns into a dried-out non-animated skeleton. After it starts drinking blood again it gets back one point of charisma for every three constitution points drained.

Note: A person who has become a thirsty vampire can still be ressurected (providing the person ressurecting them has a part of their body from before the transformation) and casting raise dead on one allows it a single will save (dc:15) to keep from reverting to normal.
