Vampires! A Dark Alleyway is a web-based MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game) based on the vampire character.

Because of its simplicity and viral nature, Vampires! is rapidly gaining popularity. Since its creation by Raven Black in 2002, the game has grown to become one of the largest vampire-based MMORPGs on the internet. Players are encouraged to invite their friends using a "biter link" referral system that gives the inviting user a ten-pint blood bonus for every unique individual registered. Mailing lists and message boards are bustling with activity as players interact and assist new members. Clans abound with a strong sense of family and avidly recruit new pires into the fold.

While the object of the game varies, it tends to follow along the same lines for most players: Get fully powered, rise in blood rank, and join a powerful clan that'll defend its members against attacks. City politics are often fierce and it's rare for a night to pass without someone being attacked for opening their mouth at the wrong time. But the city also has a gentler side. There exists a hall of binding where companionships are formed between lovers wishing to bind in blood. The shops provide such romantic items as roses and diamond rings that may be exchanged between friends and lovers alike. The same hall of binding also permits the siring of existing players, which allows for the formation of family units that many times act in similar manner as a clan. True to life (or unlife, rather) however, there is also a hall of severance in case these relationships don't work out.

History, politics, love, an ever-developing storyline, Vampires! is the game to play. Not to mention, it's FREE!
