Granted the Sisterhood revive thoses vyres staked and especially those who were willingly staked/did it themselves.

Will this new addition of a "cure" by ignis (Sunblessed), remove the notion from the sisterhood and no longer revive vyres that willingly staked themselves. Provided they'd be aware of the newer option?

As suicide is frowned upon.
Honestly staking yourself sounds like it should be a pretty difficult process, and I've not seen it come up all too regularly. But no, this does not have a change on the current lore of revivals.
I think he means - asking someone else to stake you. Its kind of like assisted suicide for characters.

Is it possible to spider walk on ice? Any elevation, angle or otherwise? Even with say, Spiked climbing boots?

How is a sunblessed vyre still a vyre if it doesn't drink blood and is revolted by darkness/can walk in daylight? Aren't that the traits that make a vyre a vyre?

  1. Vyres got to drink blood, sunblessed don't
  2. vyres got sharp teeth, sunblessed don't
  3. vyres can't be in daylight/get sick, sunblessed can and don't
  4. sunblessed are removed from the bloodline family-tree at becoming sunblessed, and thus are no longer a vyre
why are they still vyres?

presumably because they aren't normal humans either

Doesn't the Ignis cure make them a level beyond vyre? Like, if vyrism is a perversion of the humanoid, then the sunblessed is a correction of that in line of thought of Ignis? It doesn't make sense to me for Ignis, who is the mortal enemy of those who created vyrism to have Ignis' own people who get cured still be called a vyre.

They're 'Sunblessed', a take on fixing the Vyre curse without requiring death to proceed. I am not sure if you have a question here, or if you simply don't agree with them?

This is more an issue of categorization than anything else. Categorize however you want IC, it's entirely sensible to treat them as being entirely distinct from vyres on a characters interacting with other characters basis.

This is me not understanding why they're called vyres. That's the question I'm asking. Why are these sunblessed vyres called vyres when nothing about them consists of vyrism traits?

I do not know why it is a problem. An individual can be turned into a Vyre, and from there they can die and effectively be reborn through the Sisterhood to remove it, or they can stay alive but change into Sunblessed. Sunblessed are changed Vyres, brought directly under the influence of Ignis. They are not the traditional Vyres but a counter and contrast to the originals.

Because categorizing them as "a variant of vyre" as opposed to "completely purified angels of the light" makes the whole situation more ambiguous, which is the intention, when it's meant to be morally ambiguous. They aren't a new class of entity, they are a variant of what they once were, but changed.

Aha, that explains my confusion! Now I understand, cheers!

Do Sunblessed Vyres lose all of their Vyre traits, such as their enhanced strength, speed, and senses, or do they retain some of those qualities post-blessing? What about their bloodline traits, or spider-walking?

Pretty sure the traits get replaced with Sunblessed traits, teeth get dulled, eyes turn orange, etc

Sunblessed and Vyres have their own pages, and those traits on said pages are what they have. There is no cross over.
