Alright punks, after my Golden Compendium thread, it's time for some short and sweet tinfoil. Don your hats!

I was rereading A Taste of Hope recently, and I found a few references to congealed blood that I found interesting. Apparently it was the flavour of choice for House Pyrah, and had a foul smell and greasy texture. This kinda reminds me of those congealed blood bricks we get ingame from Morytania monsters. Reinforcing this is that the examine says the bricks are viscous and smell of copper. Copper could smell like silver to a Vyre, and viscous could be like greasy.

Only problem: House Pyrah was exterminated by Lord Lowerniel, and all their stores of congealed blood were destroyed with them. OR SO WE THINK!

What if there is an Heir of Lord Pyrah running around now, making more congealed blood? Could he or she want revenge on the House Drakan for destroying them? Or maybe the blood essences we get at the end of River of Blood (presumably) were first made by the thralls of House Pyrah? Perhaps the vyres who were involved with the initial research of Haemalchemy could have been secret Pyrahs!

My favorite theory is that we ally with a Pyrah heir in River of Blood, and that heir becomes ruler of Morytania: Since the Pyrah were corpse eaters, that marginally improves the conditions of the people of Morytania! Fortunately, though, they kept their prey in terrible conditions, so nothing actually has to change!

Discuss!

Well, if vampyres end up staying in Morytania, I would imagine that some vampyre(s) will rule Morytania in place of House Drakan (I've hypothesized that haemalchemy will allow the vampyres a blood supply without humans, so that they can live peacefully side by side). My original thought was a rebel group, but someone from House Pyrah would do just as well. I'm too Unaligned to have a forum signature.

Well there is the theory that Veliaf is a vampyre in disguise. Maybe he's the last Pyrah heir, who went into hiding during the extermination of his House? Hell, he's standing right outside of the crypt where the Ravenous Ghouls are. A

Unlikely. He may be a vyre but not a Pyrah. I don't think he would be like what he is if he was a pyrah...
NO
I do not ship ZamorakxZaros.
I follow them. And Marimbo, the best t5 god.

Ya know.....we never really found out what the deal was with that vampyre who got sealed up in that coffin in the Paterdomus if I'm remembering it right. What if that thing breaks out and happens to be a Pyrah who somehow does what you just described during the quest?

It's possible that it already has, but Vanescula has her own plans independent of securing more blood like she stated as the reasons for invading.

Chatting with some of your old vyre buddies while in House Drakan gear reveals that Vanescula has "recovered a hidden cache of blood from somewhere" and the upper class is eating well under her new leadership. Sentinel Noctantine also notes that the Vyrewatch is more obedient under her than they were under Drakan's "leadership"

Now, I'm not sure about you all, but sated nobles, an obedient and loyal vyrewatch, and a less horribly oppressed human demographic are the three things that Vanescula told us she could accomplish with Haemalchemy and a dead Drakan.

She's already accomplished two of those, and the third is something that would take time to shift the attitudes of vyre society towards even with infinite blood.

As Lego said elsewhere

Original message details are unavailable.
I mean everybody else, props for trying, you made good bait. She got things done.

@Mad Hatter: I thought that was explained, but if it wasn't, good catch!

@Cybernet: She's a good leader. She's also invading Misthalin, which is an outcome terrible enough that I would like to avoid it. ***** those Meiyerditch people, anyways!

The Pyrah created their blood through holding their prey in inhumane conditions that appalled even Lord Drakan--who also hinted that their type of blood is considered disgusting to most Vyres, so I don't think a Pyrah takeover would be preferable for either side (and the whole secret-heir-ending-a-war thing, especially if its Veliaf, was kinda already done in Plague's End).

Also, I like Vanescula's character and she is effective in doing what she thinks is best for her people (and so far I haven't really seen any practical alternatives--as unfortunate as that might be for the human kingdoms). I'm hoping that through the quest we find a previously-unknown method that Vanescula would accept, leaving her in charge but also resolving the conflict.

Is it wrong that I'm rather glad that Jagex decided to let an exterminated people stay exterminated for once (here's hoping the Pyrah don't pop out of the woodwork when we get access to Vampyrium via World Gate eventually)?

That being said, I rather enjoyed the implication that the Vampyre in the coffin was none other than
Ivandis Seergaze.
. Though I was disappointed that I couldn't even try to cure him.
