[Fights Between Vampires]
Vampires of different or the same ages may sometimes meet and end up fighting. This thread is to make sure that such fights become fair, and we ask you to follow these ‘rules’ if they happen. If you have any questions about all of this, feel free to contact an admin about it. Also, if there is a fight going on and you can't decide who ought to 'win', please also contact an admin and they will determine that for you.
There are four groupings of ages for a reason. Think of these as four classes in which one must stay in order to have a battle. Ancients will be able to fight other Ancients comparably in battle. Age becomes relative in some ways once you pass a certain point. The closer two characters are in age, the less the outcome of a fight will depend on age. It will then depend more on skill, size and experience than the actual strength/age of a vampire.
The older you become the more years there can be between two characters and they will still be comparable in battle. The one who is older in such a case may have more skill and a better handle on their abilities, if of course that character has put time and effort into training them - an Ancient vampire will be able to beat up an Elder (unless of course the Ancient is 1600 years and the Elder is just 1499 years old, as an example… they will still be close in age then), just like any Elder (and Ancient) will always be able to beat up a Juvenile (unless the elder is say 501 years old and the Juvenile is 490 or something)...
If we say two newly turned Juvenile characters were to fight, for example Addison and Mike, the outcome would depend on which of them would be better at fighting, not who was turned first.
A vampire who has devoted their life to training their skills will have a sound advantage over one who has not. For example, if Alexander Cross was the same age as for example Lune, she would probably mop the floor with him because she devotes her time and effort into furthering her senses and skills.
Two ancients who fight will also both be very strong and most likely match each other. In that case, it won’t matter if one is a few hundred years older than the other. If Cain were to fight for example Namar, or Bellamorte was to fight Sebastian, it would depend on their skills and abilities and not their age.
