    You could think that if they are holding out because they think the GM has something special planned for him.
    If the GM mentions a rock on a dirt road typically the PC might check it out because the gm mentioned it.
    not always the case. My team one checked out a strip club and the gm mentioned the bartender but we didn’t care for some reason

    If you didn’t catch the supplemental material for the new episode, well, there’s more now. Head to the episode page to see the rest (http://bit.ly/2nsrZvr)

    @pseery80 What I can tell you (in all seriousness) is that I found it washed up on the bank of Loch Ness so… who’s to say it’s not solidified ectoplasm?

    Hey, Loving the season so far.

    I have a theory/idea for how a Vampirism cure (well, cure is a strong word) could work. Does anyone mind if I post it here or should I just hold onto it?

    OK,

    So this is based on things that have been said before. I agree that I can’t see any way that he could be restored to life in his original body.

    In season 2, vampirism was described as being like a ghost possessing their own body. Now there seems to be a strong connection, as when the body is destroyed the spirit seems to be as well. So, if there is some way to break that connection without destroying him, they would have a regular ghost. That’s step 1. (“well, you’re not a vampire anymore”).

    Step 2 goes into a morally questionable area. In Supernatural (I forget which season, it was one of the times when Sam and Dean were split up) there <span style=”text-decoration:line-through;”>is</span> was a character named Ruby, who was playing the part of a “reformed” demon at the time (spoilers for 10 year old TV) In one episode, Sam calls her out on just randomly possessing people in the towns he goes to, so there’s this scene where she takes the body of someone who is legally braindead (The docs are in the process of pulling life support).

    Something like that could work, but I’m not entirely sure how I feel about that last part.

    That’s actually a really clever idea. However, I worry that even aside from the ethical dilemma that poses, you would also be putting the spirit into a brain-dead body. If the body was missing its heart or lungs, a demon might still be able to walk around because it’s really just “animating” the body. But to take over a person’s body, you’d be living with the same limitations as they were. They’re brain-dead, so you’d be brain-dead too. The “regeneration” properties only apply if you’re a vampire. So you’d have to find someone who is of sound mind and body that is willing to give up everything they have and are to a total stranger.

    Assuming you first find a way to remove the “spirit” from the original body without destroying it.
