You vs Vampires vs Blogging (win free thing)

Hey there faithful following. Do you like free stuff? How about conditional free stuff? Well that is what I have today. I have, in my steam inventory, a copy of Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines, that one heavily flawed RPG that people seem to like a lot after the application of a fan-patch. The conditions? You must engage in a battle for the ages with in blog form. With who? I haven't figured that out yet (maybe since he did so well last time with his Temple of Elemental Evil commission) Not me, even though I haven't finished (read: played more than 2 hours) it yet. I'm too busy playing questionable games like Might and Magic IX and thinking about writing about 4X games to deal with such. Maybe a blog battle with yourself?

The conditions? Write a 500 word essay about any person, historical or otherwise, who you would like to have a blogging battle concerning vampires with. Bonus points if they are an established writer, not that bonus points mean anything. The person with the most persuasive thing will get the game. If you already own Vampire the Masquerade, you could possibly volunteer to be the competitor in question, even if you've beaten it before. I dunno. Just... get this off my hands.

I take it no-one's biting? That sucks, I was hoping to do a little virtual bloodletting. I guess you'd have to be bats to get into the blah-g arena with me, but I'm also kind of Vlad that fangs are trans-piring (possible double?) the way they are since the stakes are so high?

See what you'd have to compete with, people?

That's solid gold.

It's that kind of pun-ishment that earned you that free copy of Disciples II a while back. Hey. Wait a second. Whatever happened to that thing?

Also, if no one continues to bite, it goes to by default. Because duh.

I was actually thinking of writing something for this for the hell of it, but then I remembered that I can't run this game. Plus I'm already writing a couple of things on the side. *gets back to that Tear Ring Saga review I should totally finish*

Even if I didn't already own Vampires on Steam, I would be far too lazy to partcipate in a blogging battle anyway. Also, I think people's thirst for new games is quenched for the time being, aka suffering from post-Steam sale shopping fatigue.
