Supernatural Powers and Abilities
While reading one of my awesomely magical books I came across a list of supernatural powers and abilities, a very long list. As I scanned through them I couldn’t help but notice that many of the powers listed were powers that quite a few vampires in fiction have, but better yet, there was a whole handful of abilities that no vampire I have ever read about have, powers that could make for a very interesting “new” vampire. This list opens up all kinds of glorious possibilities for the writers and dreamers amongst us, so I ask you, in your own vampire fantasy world, which of these powers would your vampires have?
(If you’re a comic book junkie many of these will sound super familiar to you)
Aerokinesis: The ability to mentally control wind and air flow.
Animation: The ability to bring inanimate objects to life.
