Welcome to Sylum Clan


Hello!  Welcome to Sylum!

Recently we’ve had newbies and some poor souls that have stumbled onto Sylum with no idea what the crazy is all about.  I figured it was time to do a ‘Sticky Post‘ to help all those who wander into the Manor, navigate around this vast universe.

So here we go.


If you’re new here, welcome!!  You’ve just been recommended to this vast multi-story universe, and you likely have no idea where to go or what to do.

Well first off.

Fact: Vampires exists.


Welcome to Sylum Clan.

A multi-layered, character driven storyverse.

Inspiration for the first story that effectively launched this concept, was the death of Timothy ‘Speed’ Speedle from the Television Series CSI: Miami.

His implausible and much mourned demise, led to the premise that you can’t kill someone if they’re already dead.

This quite literally immortalized him, birthing the first story Kiss of Death, and the rest just kept on growing, sprawling  across more than 7,000 years of unexpected history, and on into the future.

A few things you should know, so you can’t say we didn’t warn you *grins*.  There are 3 Major Story Arcs, and hundreds of Supplemental Stories.  These stories expand across 13 Clans, 7 Kin Clans, and showcase over 1200 Characters.

We just hit our 15th Anniversary in 2020!

Sylum Teaser: Kitchen Angels


So this is a teaser from a major story that is being worked on (in between all the other stories being worked on – the main one being Family … YES I’m actually working on it)


The reason it’s posting today is because it associates with D-Day.   If you read Assassins Creed: Masyaf you’ve been introduced to Matt – this is some of his back story.

Author’s Note:  This is only a small moment of the Normandy landings.   Respect to all those men who landed on the beaches, for those who lost and those who continued the fight.

Sylum Inspiration: Wilhelm Grimm

Ehre/Weisheit: Head of Security


Wilhelm and Jacob were born exactly 2 years apart. Jacob still hates that he was the youngest. Their father ran a pub in the village, and their mother worked the bar. They grew up hearing tales of adventure and far distant lands.

They always knew when ‘Hansel and Gretel’ came through (Dilios Note: Later they discovered it was Wilhelm and Tamara), so it was a shock to see them come with two others. Especially one that looked like Wilhelm.

Wilhelm always good with dealing with the drunks and Jacob good with the gossip around town; they always provided good information.

Curious that the new guy had to be a family member, he followed them, ending up in the middle of a Rogue nest. Surprisingly Wilhelm and Jacob held their own in the fight, and it was only to the end that Wilhelm was badly injured.

As he died he found his look alike was a Vampire! He was pissed he would die not hearing the greatest story ….

Sylum Inspiration: Tus

Medjai: Member

Tus was the oldest son of the Sharaman.  He had always been jealous of the kid, his father had picked up.  Dastan was able to focus on what he wanted to, hide from the politics and courts, while Tus who wanted to just be a scholar was forced into the role of heir.

After the attack again Alamut, his father disapproved of their taking the city, despite the fact he had taken the advice from their uncle Nizam.  He was happy he wouldn’t be stuck marrying the Tamina the princess, but felt as if he wasn’t being treated fairly.  After his father’s death and blame put on Dastan, everything was off.  Nothing made sense, and he his uncle’s behavior wasn’t sitting well with him.

When he brother came back, claiming his innocents, telling him about the Dagger of Time, then proceeded to prove how it worked by stabbing himself.   Tus believes him, and the two know they have to confront Nazim, only for the Hassassin to attack, giving Nazim time to kill Tus.

He doesn’t remember much afterwards, just that a man with bright eyes asked him if he wanted to stay with his brother.   He never regretted saying yes, well most days he didn’t.
