I was browsing the updates, because I don't have my shipping notification and needed to immerse myself in the SoB goodness that is coming. I noticed something odd that I hadn't noticed before in this picture:
Do you see it?
Why would a vampire have a cross on top of their coffin lid? Do they have to be extra careful not to touch it when opening or closing the coffin? What happens if one accidentally sits on top of the coffin without looking or thinking? I gotta know details!
Eh. The idea that a vampire is repelled/injured by a holy icon is actually a fairly recent vampire mythos that was added by Hollywood. Additionally, a lot of interpretations require that there be actual faith behind the icon and/or it being an icon of a religion they follow. So the vampire in SoB may not have gotten the memo.
I knew that college course on folklore and mythology would be good for something!
I thought you were picking up on the one whose coffin was upright which is either hinged and so keeps catching the one on the floor or sitting loose and likely to get nudged and fall open at the wrong moment.
and for that matter do they need lids if they are deep in the mines and away from the light, is it like pulling a sheet up for the comfort factor?
