Show your love for VO by buying us a pint! (of O-neg)
Welcome to Vampyres Only, the original vampire website!
Renfield says, "Established in 1994, VO was the first vampire website, and has been undead and kicking for over twenty years! There's a wealth of information here--thousands of pages!--dedicated to these bloodsucking creatures of the night. I hope you enjoy the original undead web!"

From Book Two of the Eyrbyggia Saga: There were once two great Icelandic warriors, Aswid and Asmund. They were not only the greatest of generals, but they were also blood brothers. One of them suggested, as they grew older, that they should make a death pact -- that when one of them died, the other would go to the grave with his friend. They both agreed to this and swore on their blood.

Such a man is Rod Jakubik. His product is fangs.
