A word to the wise (from the experienced) If you make vamps able to bite, 
you may want to restrict them. For example, make them only able to bite 
at night, and maybe after they bite, set a flag on them that prohibits 
them from biting until the next nighttime. You could just put a line of 
code into the weather procedures that removes the flag when darkness 
falls if it is set on the player. The reason is that if you don't do 
this, players will gain huge amounts of hit. Before we retricted bite, we 
had level 15 - 20 vampires soloing level 40 - 50 mobs. Wee had one guy 
get to level 35 out of 60 in less than 2 hours of playing time. BE 
CAREFUL! Maybe also limit how much they can gain based on level. :-)
