Awwww. I was hoping some races would have separate monies based on what their race is like.
E.G. I'd expect the dwarves to use gemstones in their money as, to them, gold and silver are not as precious as they are to us whereas Avians would use a non-metal currency for the sake of flight-weight.

Lol. There's also the fact that vampires in that age are too arrogant to believe a human, even one with a silver sword, could kill them.

As far as I can remember off the top of my head there are exactly four vampires in the world who carry a sword, one of them isn't around at that time, one isn't a vampire at that time and the other two are on the other side of the world.
Sir Gates is safe from that threat :L

Would be, but a vampire wouldn't typically wield a sword. They can quite easily rip through armour with their bare hands like it's paper.

Nor could it.  A real sword would cut it in half.  Anything else it struck (without taking advantage of its magical vampire slicing qualities) would bend it or dent it beyond repair.  It's essentially as soft as gold from a hardness perspective.  Softer even than bronze as I recall.
Exactly. He, as a dedicated slayer uses what is, to him, the perfect weapon but to anyone else is useless as anything else but a display piece.
He doesn't want to cut or hit anything else with it. All that matters is killing vampires.

Well, it's not raining here in England so clearly something's wrong :L

The solid silver is because of two reasons:
1.Sir Gate's sword in particular is designed for killing vampires and killing vampires alone, a sword with less silver would be less effective and this sword doesn't need to cut down anything else.
2. Solid Silver would be EXPENSIVE when you make a whole Highland Claymore from it. It shows the lengths Sir Gates goes to and his dedication to destroying vampires.

Also, Moonkey, are your hands warm yet or you gonna keep doing that?

This is a quarter of what I have so far. this will probably end up
I like the plot... Oh and different time periods? This is getting very interesting... *rubs hands together*
Glad you like it, I'm hoping that following both Vampires and Slayers could give me the opportunity to do some interesting things with the story. this is actually 3 stories in one book that tie together. It follows Nathan (The Vampire in modern day), Sir Gates (The guy in silver armour) and Mr Gray.

Also, just like to point out “Saothair deagh.” and “Taing." are genuine Scottish Gaelic :L

Awesome Cheesy

Chapter Two, (1574)
The bright sunlight reigning over the skies above illuminated the world. The colours of the landscape were bright and vivid. From the overwhelming green of the grass to the yellow of the delicate buttercups dotting the land. Fourteen men led by a tall man in silver plated armour destroyed the beautiful landscape with their footsteps as they made their way toward a cave by a riverside.
The man in silver armour, along with four others of the front 6 men in the pyramid formation were knights, the others were travelling slayers with great skills in various fields. All of these men had devoted their lives to destroying the very creatures they were about to encounter. They had been preparing for this day, this moment, their entire life. No more than ten feet from an old door of rotting wood at the entrance to the cave the man in silver armour held up an open left hand and stopped. The rest of the formation stopped behind him. He pointed to the door and made use of his perfectly enunciated, eloquent voice “Mr Gray. If you will?”
Mr Gray, a slight and grey-robed man at the back of the formation walked around the group of men and up to the door. Crouching by the wooden door he took two cloth satchels from the multitude tied around his waist. Of the many different colours the two he selected were black and bright orange. He undid the black one revealing a tinderbox and a small amount of hay and, placing the fuse of the orange satchel below the small pile he made with the hay, started a small fire. The fuse lit and he picked up the orange satchel. He stood up and faced the door whilst watching the fuse burn. When only an inch or two of fuse was yet untouched by the flame he kicked open the door and threw the small explosive inside.
A loud bang accompanied the bright light flooding the cave and in less than a half second the light dimmed, staying bright enough to keep the interior of the cave illuminated.
As the group entered the large cave they drew their weapons. Mr Gray and another man of similar figure and dress had brought out stone devices, as thick as a strong man’s wrist, with a sharp wooden point at one end, the other end they filled with a powder from a red bag from each of their waists. Four muscular men wearing armour covered in forest-green scales loaded large, modified crossbows with short, thick, wooden stakes. Once their right hands gripped fully loaded crossbows they also equipped their left hands with longer stakes. Another four men, tall men with no armour but their shirts and their clan-tartan kilts, wielded long thick stakes in each hand. Four of the knights drew silver-plated longswords from the hilts at the waist of their steel armour.
The man in the sliver armour drew a solid silver Highland Claymore from his waist. The only part of the claymore that was not silver came from the back of the hilt, where a solid oaken stake protruded.
The cavern was huge, considerably larger than it appeared from the outside. There were a dozen flaming balls lay by the cavern walls, illuminating the thirty or so coffins around the room. One of the older Scotsmen turned to Gray; “Saothair deagh.” Gray looked at him, apparently confused, for a few seconds before another of the Scotsmen, this one younger, clarified.
“Cannae say a word o’ yar tongue. Says ‘at’s good work. Tho’ fireballs o’ yars.”
Turning to the older Scotsman Gray replied in the man’s Gaelic tongue “Taing.” He then stepped over to a coffin, everyone else in the room followed suit. Those who hadn’t already drew a wooden stake and they all held them, point down, over a coffin each.
The man in silver armour looked about the room, everyone was in place. Half the creatures would start dying before they even knew what was happening. “Three.”
They all rose their stakes ready to strike.
A few of them adjusted their grip, ensuring they could make the lethal blow.
The stakes rose, in unison, a little higher.
All fifteen stakes came down, through the coffins and into the dead hearts of their occupants. And, all at once, fifteen horrific, blood curdling shrieks filled the air as the dying vampires screamed both in pain and in warning to their comrades.
18 coffins opened. 36 black eyes turned to look at the group of humans that had just slaughtered half of their family.
The fifteen slayers readied themselves.
The vampires lunged.

BenKenobiWan, that's possibly the best and most detailed critique I've ever had. Thanks, man. I'm actually tweaking it now based on what you've said.
Seriously, man. I really appreciate this.
Interested in the second chapter?
