But I like playing someone who’s OP. I actually disagree that they’re OP, though: the vampires’ weakness isn’t garlic or crucifixes, it’s their dependence on human blood to survive. That drastically pares down and changes exactly how they handle themselves when confronting human survivors and even how they use their powers against zombies and Fey–since they’re essentially powerless if the supply of blood in their body ‘runs out’. A vampire can’t fly if they haven’t fed in a while, and they’re still liable to be ripped apart by zombies if there’s a scarcity of humans for them to draw power from.
Fun fact though, eating garlic will make you taste disgusting to a vampire, which is why they tend to avoid people who have it. When you’re starving, though, you can’t afford to be picky.
