Well, if you don't have blood flowing through your veins, you can't necessarily get drunk, can you?


Well what happens to the blood they ingest, does it simply sit in the stomach? (It may go straight into the veins but I doubt it)


Honestly, I have no clue. Maybe vampirism gives the individual a tapeworm. A tapeworm with an incurable bloodlust.

Vampires can only get drunk if they drink the blood of someone who is already drunk.


But they get drunk from the alcohol that's in the victim's blood, so why can't they ingest it from the source like a bottle of Mead for instance?

In theory they should be able to drink blood and then some alcohol because that's what they get when they feed from a drunk guy.

They typically don't walk around and drink blood from the living, either, but vampires aren't exactly normal dead people.


They're still dead though. Bloodlust can make one appear intoxicated, but alcohol does not affect vampires. Trust me.

That's actually a pretty creative idea lol.

Vampires are still effected by potions when they drink them, and food when they eat it, so they can probably get drunk.

Also, the vampires in TES do have blood flowing in their veins (see: Serana, Harkon, and all the Volkihar vampires), but it's not normal "blood." It's some magic ****.

No. Vampires can't digest food of any kind, impregnate anyone, and can't get drunk. They are dead.


Oblivion begs to differ.

Then how can you eat food as a vampire and still gain health from it? This is Bethesda however, barely anything is consistent when it comes to them.

An Imperial vampire impregnated an Orc in Oblivion. Guess it could depend on the type of vampire.

Maybe they can get drunk if the beverage contains blood...? *GASP* THAT MUST BE AN INGREDIENT IN SANGUINE'S SPECIAL BREW!
