They probably gonna have a “cool down time for vampires” so you can do four year every century or so. Honestly seeing how Haste is the first vamp to become President (although Lovecraft did run in the 60’s) and vampires making up little of the us and world population that it gonna be a long time before the issue comes up.

I mean as technology advances how long until life extensions undercut vampire’s monopoly age on immortality So this is gonna be a future problem anyway before in BR and OTL.


That kinda fear mongering, vamps have been out in the open since the early to mid 50’s in BR and no one beside Cambodia under Pol Pot had ordered people to give blood. Most vampires get their blood from local blood blanks. Coke and order companies has been making blood sodas since the 60’s by now so their no need to “farm” humans. Also these are not the Buffy type lose your soul once you join the undead type vampire, they keep their emotions and original personality after becoming a blood sucker so forcing people to give up blood wouldn’t go over well even among vampires. Would you force your neighbor to give up blood when you could go down to the local store and get diet B positive and hot chips?


Pre Castro Cuba, Brazil during the 50’s-70’s, Portugal before the carnation revolution, The USA during the 50’s-60’s, South Japan until the 80’s, South Africa until the 90’s, not to mention large parts of the Middle East (mostly due what Uday did during the third gulf war and the Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan) and Africa to this day have horrible anti vampire laws. Hell one of the reasons why the US still support The Greater Liberian Republic is for their tolerance for vamp rights.
1. It doesn't matter if Haste is the first vamp to be President, a Vampire lives forever. Waiting 60 years before running for office after coming out would be nothing to a guy who was a full grown adult at the time of the American Revolution. In order for a proper "cool down time" to be implemented there would have to be actual political weight behind it, which seems unlikely because it would actually require a wave anti-immortal sentiment among normal humans that doesn't devolve into Fundamentalist bs.

2. I don't believe life-extending technologies will come about as quickly as they will OTL, as the primary market for early versions of these techniques, the Rich, would probably like to take the 100% guaranteed immortality of Vampirism rather than buy very rudimentary products that won't have the same effect as Vampirism for centuries at the very least.

3. This seems self contradictory, there's not enough Vampires around for supply of blood to become an issue yet there are enough to justify major companies to make blood-products to such a degree that they are available at a corner shop. Keep in mind that the vast majority of the human population probably doesn't like drinking blood so these products are specially made for vampires. Which also poses the question of where does all the blood for these products come from? The amount of stuff a company goes through to mass produce products OTL is HUGE (look at anything Nestle does), now that blood's in the mix supply problems will pop up sooner or later. The obvious solution would be to pay poor people for their's, but then there's the problem of blood borne diseases infecting the supply.

4. I should've been more specific. I meant a fully developed modern economy being able to look at the prospect of Vampires as a part of society and go "No thanks" while maintaining liberalism as a facet of their societies beyond some boomer "SEGREGATION FOREVER!" type shit where the legislation just gets passed a few months later anyway.

Actually I was planning on having vampires (in America the Soviet are a different story. Vampire Putin isn’t leaving office anytime soon) push for the cool down time, the reason why will be covered in the once I get to it on the writer’s forum where the Full Story is being written at. Yes I know it’s highly unlikely an ridiculous that a group of powerful vampire of elites would help pass laws limiting their powers within human governments, but so is the idea of vampire elites or the concept of vampires as an whole, or japan being spilt between a corrupt south US back republic and the North being run by a “moderate” Communist Monarchy or the hundreds more ASB thing in that world.

Vampires population isn’t large enough for them to go out farming people, but their are big enough for some few niche sodas companies owned by coke a few others which offer flavored blood they mostly sell a certain locations. Yes vamps some pay for people to give blood, but keep in mind these guys are dead. Vampires if they get some bad blood they can get sick for a week at the most and yes their are some people looking into that to help humans recover from things such as HIV and AIDS.

Well no modern first world nations have open and racist apartheid style bands on vampires sorry. Who are they gonna ally with? Who are they gonna trade with? Putin is a vampire so the Soviets are out. America isn’t gonna support that shit after the 60’s, 70’s and maybe the very 80’s at most in the case of old South Africa.

More Railroading, and Various Other Events, in the Boyd-Verse Part 2
Special thanks to @Murica1776, @KingOnTheEdge and @TheMann for inspiring some of my ideas here as we start going a bit more internationally for these. Many of these above events also relate to one of my recent DBWIs.

British locomotives have never been common in the American Territories. However, the above Hunslet-built tank engine was one of many that the British firm built for use on industrial lines across the Carribean from Puerto Rico to British Jamaica.

This section of the Southern Pacific's Coast Daylight rolls along the west coast of the Baja Peninsula en route to St. Luke's Cape from the San Fransisco Bay Area of Jefferson.

Reinhard Heydritch, ruler of East Germany during the Seperation era, was already notorious for his racial views. Ones that would only make the East German invasion of West Germany even more brutal than what people had initially expected from a fascistic state.

This photo, taken in 1940, depicts an orphaned Japanese child after the Soviet firebombing of Hiroshima. Photos such as these further fueled pro-Allied sentiment in both the US and UK, which were still neutral at the time. Though the above event, combined with the Spanish Invasion of Portugal and the East German/Austrian invasion.

Having previously regained his Catholic faith, then attended Oxford and achieved degrees in both art and mathematics, Austrian-born Civil Engineer Adolf Hitler was appointed Prime Minister of the newly reunified Germany after the Giant War. Hitler's vision for a Reunited Germany that now included Austria projected one of almost a space-age Europe. His use of the swastika as his personal emblem is best exemplified in this 1948 photo, from when the newly reformed Germany first had the Kaiser re-established.

British and German forces meet up during joint exercises early in the Cold War. Determined to have a strong ally to combat the American, French, and Chinese conversions of Spain and Russia into Republics, the UK, Brazil, and Japan sought to likewise reform Germany and Hungary to balance the power out quickly between the Republics and Parliments.

1582646257845.png

The event that most think finally ended the Cold War for real was the Carnation Union. Increasing instability in Portugal led to Brazil coming in with British support to establish a Brazilian-Portuguese Constitutional Monarchy. Eventually, support by the French, who felt betrayed by American and Chinese support for Indochinese rebels, led to many in the world realizing that the quarrel between Republicanism and Monarchism was ultimately quite silly, since all of the nations were democracies that gave semi-autonomy to their colonies.

Photos of the Revolution Day Uprising which took place in the United Provinces of Britannia. What began as a simple protest against rising housing prices quickly spiraled into a general protest against the Britannian government after Civil Guard units were called in to disperse the crowd, accidentally killing a teenager. High Commissar Lucius placed Londinium under Martial Law and had General Sevren Tectilum bring in the Phoenix Guard to keep order as the protests got more and more disorderly. Finally, on the 3rd of Quintillius as the government prepared to celebrate the Ruby Revolution the riots devolved into a full scale uprising. Made up of mostly students from the various campuses of the Londium Rhaetor the protests, which attracted a few thousand people at most, suddenly drew nearly 10,000 students into the streets. The police and Guard had gotten used to the small scale riots and were promptly overwhelmed by the influx of bodies. Many suburbs of Londinium like Caesaria and Ionith were occupied and barricades were arisen. The fighting would go on for the rest of the day as the Phoenix Guard and supporting Civil Guard units methodically and brutally cleared the revolters. Thousands were killed or wounded and thousands more arrested as the Phoenix Guard, led personally by the High Commissar cut their way to the Revolution's makeshift HQ with reports saying the Commissar himself executed the Revolutions ostensible leaders. It was still a hard fought battle as some Civil Guard units defected and the Commissar was even cut off for a brief moment in the late afternoon. By nightfall the most brutal fighting was over and Londinium began to pick up the pieces but the public had tasted blood in the water and the stage was set for the even bloodier Day of the Dead.
 
So recently I've been thinking about what the wider world of Land of Confusion: Genesis would be like and I'm kinda picturing the Soviet wasteland would be similar to Metro, Atom and STALKER. The same way that the American wastes are in the same vein as Fallout, Wasteland, Exodus D20 and Mad Max, since the world pre Armageddon was pretty atompunk and cassette futurism in terms of technology. Also yes there's some nasty supernatural elements stalking the ruins of the old world and some crazy esoteric stuff.


I'm kinda picturing post apocalyptic Samurai defending their villages from rabid packs of mutants in post Armageddon Japan and Swiss expeditions encountering various survivor bands across the Alpine Wastes.

Land of Confusion:
Genesis

When Armageddon struck not everyone left behind on the surface gave into the darker side of mankind's nature. A few brave souls in those dark days decided to take a stand against the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, these men were the Desert Rangers. Starting out as a simple company of Army Engineers of old America who were out in the desert rebuilding roads and bridges when doomsday rang. It wasn't long after seeing the mushroom clouds in the distance that these lost souls took over a nearby prison complex and driving the inmates out into the desert... something that they would eventually regret.

World oldest man and leader of the Soviet Socialist Republic Until his death in 2002 Joseph Stalin. Described by his successor and head of the NKVD Vladimir Putin as an old bear to stubborn and angry to die. Over his long rule he would survive three world wars, ten car accidents, a near train crash, two attempted coups, a friendly fire incident with the Black Sea fleet, and a unknown assassination attempts. It was often joked that Stalin had purged death himself and it would appear to be so seeing how Stalin would die of a self inflicted gun shot to the head saying earlier that evening
I am tired of this shit I been waiting for over a hundred damn years now screw it if you want something done do it yourself” in Georgian.
