Vampire. I'll take any excuse to wear long black trench coat or cape and talk with fake-y russian accent.

Vampires are a metaphore for sex, so vampire

I liked in Morrowind when you could be both.....soooo many buffs...

Vampire is nice for a stealth boost but you have to starve yourself for three days to get any good buffs...and if you accidentally let the fourth day go by and become a starved vampire say goodbye to every being allowed anywhere ever again.

Werewolf is cool because you can actually control it.

Purely based of what the last magic the Gathering Deck I built...

I say Werewolves

Neither.
I choose...dragon.

Since I'm not fond of either getting murdered by the sun, or turning into a furry.

Werewolf. Never bieng able to be out in the sun feels like a very unpleasant thought. I also would be able to live a fairly normal life as werewolf; all I would have to do is chain myself to rock in the forest once a month.

The Red Goblin:
The only problem is that people nowadays seem to have no idea of the difference between werewolves and lycanthropes.

Fucking hell people are stupid, right? Please don't be that guy, it's an insignificant difference that isn't exactly cemented in language.

OT: Vampire fo' sho'. Vampires are pretty awesome when they're charming, suave and smooth with nobody knowing what you really are; I'd love to be that. Sure, going outside in the sun might be a bummer and not being able to enter anyone's house without them saying you can might land you in a couple awkward situations and who cares about garlic when you have an insatiable thirst for human blood. I could make it work.

I would say Vampires. For the mythology behind them is very...cultured, in comparison to the brutish ferocity of the werewolf. I do like having control of body and not have to maintain lunar knowledge. Defy gravity and certain mind-reading powers? Heck yes. Also, the lust for blood would be (Although annoying) interesting, as the murder of people would have to be planned and traced for execution, while werewolves charge without rhyme or reason to guide them.
I do like going outside, however... and the summer would be annoying with drum line and such...
I can deal.

(I can't find a good enough Innistrad Card to represent)

Werewolf, hands down. However, there I would have to be able to control it. I wouldnt want to go completely feral when I changed... I would have to retain my senses.

Evil Smurf:

Bah, I say! Vampires cant hold a candle to the pure animal magnetism of a werewolf! :)

Tough one let me think.

Vampire: Super strength and Speed, only nourishment needed is blood, can turn into bats(?), hates garlic, wooden stakes and holy symbols=mortal enemy, and no sunlight.

Werewolf: Loses control on a full moon, weak to silver and... Do werewolves get any pluses when humans? Like super agility or anything?

I guess from what I know, Vampire has more pros, but I like the sun so probably werewolf.

Werewolves definitely
I would have said werewolf before twilight anyway, but after it my point is just even more backed up
Werewolves are just awesome

Probably a werewolf given the fact that I retain much more freedom of movement than I would as a vampire (i.e. can't cross running water, can't be in direct sunlight, can't enter homes without permission, the sight of crosses hurt me, etc). If I can retain some of their strength, speed, and agility in my human form, all the better then. That is, unless I could become a Dhampir or a Daywalker, in which case I'd go with vampire.

You can already do that, you'd just be barred from entering schools.

NWoD Gangrel vampires. Best of both worlds.

The_Lost_King:
I started thinking about werewolves and vampires and was thinking about which I would rather be. I chose werewolf because the are awesome and you might be able to scrape away a somewhat normal life. Plus I am a FUCKING wolf. I get to rip things apart with my bare hands, and no not the pussy twilight kind of either. I am talking one from horror movies not elder scrolls or twilight.

Can I pick Aesir or Vanir instead?

Vampire. Immortality, enhanced strength and senses... daylight is the only problem, but I could live with that.

If you are talking about Dracula,

It's actually Hungarian. The actor Bela Lugosi spoke with a fairly heavy Hungarian accent. His portray of Dracula was so well received and popular, that the accent permanently became a part of the Dracula character.

Yes, yes I'm aware of that. I didn't actually have Bela Lugosi in mind (although I should, his take on the Dracula is definitive). Just couldn't think of a better way to describe it at the time. My bad. Not that I could ever match the awesome creepy presence he had. Kind, soft-spoken and at the same time threatening. Not to mention that bone chilling stare.

Also, a bit of trivia. I think first recorded vampire legends came from these parts (Croatia), more accurately Istria (Istra). Something about a peasant named Jure Grando who supposedly came back from the dead to terrorize his village. You're welcome world :P

werewolf of course. especially if I can control it id be fine with losing control if it was only once a month.Frankly i'd like it like this guy
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Astounding_Wolf-Man

and on the subject of twilight vampires they actually appear better than the traditional kind it's just the way that we were introduced to them that was bad

No, i will be that guy for a good fucking reason. Werewolves change during the full moon and they always have. It's a central part of being a werewolf. Lycanthropes however can change at will. It is far from an insignificant difference & It is entirely cemented in goddamn language.
If you want to be a vampire you'll sparkle when you go in the sun. Oh wait, vampiresdon't do that, one of the key parts of the myth has been changed. Thing 1 is now a different thing.

Aesir and Vanir are the two races of Norse gods. Odin, Thor, Balder, Heimdall, Sif are all Aesir, while Frey, Freya, and Njordir are Vanir.

It's not clear from the mythology whether they are exceptional members of their races or if they are the only ones. I get the impression that there are many of them, and the ones in the stories are exceptional for some reason (nobility?).

Werewolf :P
You'd get a lot of benefits that vampires get (super speed, strength etc) and in most cases you're godmode in wolf form since honestly who keeps silver bullets around?

Immortality may seem nice but it'll be more like hell when your family and friends die around you and you begin to realize how much it sucks so unless you're a lone wolf (pardon the pun, it was totally intended) you're better off being mortal.

The whole bloodlust in the moonlight occurs what once a month? just chain yo self up. According to what mythology we're going with could you just have a silver bangle on your arm to weaken the wolf form to the point that you don't go crazy? Parrently silver makes you ever revert to human or weakens you greatly so either way you can deal with the whole crazy fool moon scenario.

Werewolves are simply cooler than Vampires, and that's not just because Edward Cullen has helped bring Vampires down a notch.

Depends on which mythology we're following.
Are these bipedal or quadrupedal werewolves? Do I have full control of my mental faculties, or am I completely feral? Do I have any kinds of powers? How do I spread werewolfism?
Are these lame vampires, or super-special awesometastic vampires? Are we talking Bela Lugosi or Alucard? Does the sunlight kill me in a second, or do I smoke and sizzle for a while. For that matter, as someone mentioned earlier, couldn't I just conjure up a cloud of darkness and go about my business like that?

So... um... I think werewolf.

as long as we're talking old-school vampires, and not those glitter-emo-perversions that showed up (more or less) recently: vampire all the way; i mean, they got swag!

Oh, werewolves. All day everyday...Or just for the full moon. Vampires are surprisingly dull, being just a plain old humainoid with sharper straw teeth, whilst werewolves have the animalistic qualities that make them awesome.

Of course, on that note, I'd rather be a Lycanthrope. But seeing as that's not an option...egh, I'll stick with being a werewolf.
