What is Karma?

Karma is a variety of out of character currency which is used to purchase certain items or perks from the karma shop. Because Karma is an OOC currency, it should not be referenced by characters. Karma can be purchased in a variety of ways, including the use of PayPal, by spending real life cash. This is considered the primary way to gain karma, because paying money into Path of the Vampire is an important part of keeping the game functioning. Other methods of gaining karma can be found below.

Why is Purchasing Karma Important?

Path of the Vampire is a community oriented, roleplay-centric game which does not rely on dense graphics, but is unique instead for its continuous and evolving storyline. Path, moreso than any other game, allows the players to permanently alter the roleplay atmosphere, story, and gameplay itself. In essence, Path is not a game with a pre-set script you play through, but an active and growing universe.

Purchasing karma aids in paying server costs, and contributes to continued content additions, bug fixing, the continued evolution of Path's unique story, the addition of new chapters, and the smooth running of not only the game, but the community on the whole. Donations are greatly appreciated, but not mandatory to either effectively play or get ahead in the game.
