Well you could always just leave the police out of it and take care of the vamp yourself...

I think that a simple fist would stop any
vamp.

ya, but the problem is getting the fist to him is the hard part. vamps are natural psis. Also, no vamp goes down in one hit. ever.

that's where pressure points, knockout blows, and joint breaking(not the drugs) comes in. *laughes psychoticly*
but I voted for passive defense, so I'm going aginst myself on this one.

Leaving our current topic, I'm not sure about something. For about a year now, I'm always thirst. I became temporarily obsessed with vampires, and have been intrested in psionics for a few months. Slight bright light sensitivity, and good night vision. Am I a vamp?

I'm just gonna be honest, alotta pressure point techniques aren't practical. And when i say this i mean "dotting" not the use of the them in joint locks, you really only use like 2-3 "dotting" technques in a fight. Unless you specialize in a style that does that.
Empathy, vamps are human, a good punch in the face can drop anyone :)

Also, when alot of this stuff happens, you usually aren't close enough to even see the person...

I still would help the little guy
even if it only means the attacker
gets two targets instead of one.

If I saw a weak, defenseless individual being attacked, I would attack the attacker until they broke off their attack on the other. I CAN defend myself very well, and would rather have them going after me than one who is unable to defend themselves. And before anyone asks (grin) I also know how to attack in the same way. I am not the storngest of psionics I've ever met, but I HAVE learned a great deal and been involved in psionic shielding and attacks for a number of years, so I tend to think I could at least "hold my own" in such a situation. And if I could not, I know of a few friends also skilled in psionics that I could call upon to lend a hand.
