Well, I don't know if you have ever read Nora Roberts' Circle of Gods
trilogy, but those books get heavily into vampire lore. In particular
Nora Roberts covers the legends of Lilith --- who is sometimes believed
to be a demon of some kind, and in more modern years used as queen of
the vampires in books. In this case Nora Roberts uses her as the queen
of the vampires, and she has several magical gifts and powers. So giving
vampires some sort of magic powers isn't out of the question here.
One part of that series of books I really liked was the magic sword that
the newly crowned queen of gia draws from the stone. It was fashioned by
the Irish Goddess Morigan, and possessed magic powers and abilities
beyond that of any normal weapon. It of course comes heavily into play
when it comes to slaying vampires during the great war at the end of
Valley of silence. Those books more than anything has influenced a lot
of my recent ideas about a Castlevania clone, or at least something like
I've never been an anne rice fan at all for various reasons, but I
always took it that when Van Gelda talks about vampires having control
over the elements, ---- this could include the element of fire!
In fact in white wolf's world of darkness vampire roleplay system,
elemental control is in there too as a standard vampire power with
fireball throwing at higher levels.
this also has fun powers like various sorts of mental domination,
control over shadows and teleportation.
Beware the grue!
