Of the three who were asked this question, Patch being one of them, all chose vampire. Patch’s wording was, “well, if we’re talking about Vampires after Stoker got to them, they really are the obvious choice.”
Which led me to wonder, “WHY?” What’s so obvious about that?
I personally would choose lycanthropy. If you end up in a mythology where you have no control over the change, you get to run bloody rampage without the dictates of conscience stopping you. If you end up in a mythology where you get more control, having that optional quadrapedal form and not having your life limited by a clock, well that just beats everything hands down. Go vampire, you lose sunlight forever, and extended travel becomes near impossible. No thanks. As for zombies, that’s dead without benefits.
Anyway, see you cloak swirling ponces in the arena.
