Vampires in “Vampire: the Masquerade” can’t eat normal food. Not only do they not get any nourishment out of it, it tastes foul to them and if they swallow it they’ll immediately vomit (unless you bought the “Eat Food” advantage for the character, in which case they still don’t get anything out of it but can eat and taste it, but I’m talking about ones that don’t have that, here).
Does this apply to plain water?
If not, how does that interact with swimming, or falling into water, and accidentally getting water in their mouths? And there’s an entire bloodline of them, the Mariner Gangrels, that can turn into water creatures and spend most of their time out at sea, so evidently that’s no problem. So I’m thinking it would hang together better if they could drink water, but is there any mention of this question either way in any of the books?
