Many of the online vampire sites you will come across feature a section on FAQ’s, or Frequently Asked Questions, questions that crop up all the time when newcomers arrive in the culture, be it online or off.
The only problem with FAQ’s is that the answers can often be the product of one person’s interpretation and beliefs. In the RVL Recommended Reading List we will place links to articles in which authors attempt not only to explain the answers but also provide, many times, alternative viewpoints that might help the reader find their own truth. This is what it is all about, the journey of discovery that is one’s own vampirism cannot necessarily be summed up neatly in one FAQ answer.
What we have compiled, and will continue to build, here is a list of material that is contained at RVL which will answer most of your questions to begin with in the most basic of ways. If you find that you have specific questions that are not covered here then please feel free to leave a message, as a comment, at the foot of the homepage, or at our Facebook portal, for us. We will do our best to answer your questions, or if we cannot, find someone/somewhere that can.
