But only if you want to become a Vampire :)
I finally am able to share the bitter, dark-shrouded joy that comes from being a Child of Night, one of the Vampir. My Dunmer Nightblade (42) Iriali, will be happy to share the Gift with those of the family, just look for me (@heavy_artillery) in-game and I'll meet you out in the Rift.
Don't worry, most of the tales are untrue. I can carry garlic around with me for days on end with no ill effects, though despite my racial background I still tend to burn easily. If you're a Knight of the Dragon I would caution against this, erm, career choice.
