Nivvix Code: Guide to Blood Magic on Lux

Introduction

Lux is a world where all kinds of heroes from all walks of life exist, from the glorious developments of Vadelkan Artificers to the glorious soldiers in the Mugenese Empire. However, with all the bright and shiny heroes that exist there is the darkness of underground societies, cults and guilds. From inside the world of the Guilded Sanctums, I, Nivvix, can guide you to the unseen actions that are hidden by the shadows. From the cults of demons like Djormyr and the Blood Hunters and masters of Hemocraft we get Blood Magic. The art of using your own life force to fuel magic. If you are brave enough to adapt this strategy to your spell casting take a leap in and continue reading.

Magic Items

The following are some magical items that are closely related to the users of blood magic.

The Rarity of this weapon changes with the level of whoever is Attuned to it.

1d6 Piercing Damage, this is considered magical for the purposes of overcoming resistances. 

Light, Finesse 

 If attuned to, Whenever you cause a creature to fall to 0 hit points, this weapon gains 1 soul charge. whenever any creature within 30 ft that you can see drops to 0 hit points you may use your reaction to gain 1 soul charge to this weapon. For each number of soul charges on this weapon divided by 2 (rounded down) this weapon gains +1 to attack and damage rolls, the extra damage is considered fire damage (for example if you have 5 souls in the weapon then it would get +2 to damage and attack rolls). This weapon has a max soul count of 1. This increases by 2 per rarity and can shift rarity with the DMs permission at certain levels  (3 Charges, Uncommon, Level 3) (5 charges, Rare, Level 6) (7 Charges, Very Rare, Level 11) (9 Charges, Legendary, Level 17)

you may spend one of the soul charges to replace a hit die required for casting a blood magic spell.

You may release as many souls as you wish stored in this weapon during a short rest to regain hit points equal to the number of souls x your character level.

Whenever you land a critical hit you may release as many souls from this weapon as you wish adding 1d4 fire damage to the attack for each soul released.

Djorsawn, meaning product of Djor (of which Djormyr is the physical embodiment of), Crafted from obsidian forged within the abyss of Djormyr's flaming Hell, this weapon is imbued with part of Djormyr's essence, therefore without this weapon Djormyr cannot be whole. With the purpose of allowing Djormyr's followers to carry out his will this weapon grants special powers to Djormyr's chosen spawn. Djormyr often hired the young or unaware to become his own personal assassins for his own gain. This weapon is semi-sentient in the sense that it is a fragment of Djormyr's being and he can communicate with a being that is attuned to it as well as he is able to see through the weapon as if it were a third eye. it is unknown if there is only one Djorsawn or if there are actually multiple spread throughout Lux, or even the multiverse. This weapon can gather the souls of the slaughtered to fuel the fire, fury and pain of Djormyr's will. Within the shadowy abyssal obsidian this weapon stores the souls of the claimed and used their essence to fuel its fires, and to enhance the vitality of its wielder. 

Pithing Needle 

Uncommon (Wand), Attunement by a creature with blood magic

This item can be used as an arcane focus if you have access to blood magic.

When you find this item it has 1d4-1 charges. This item has a maximum of 4 charges

If you are attuned to this item you may perform an attack with this item as a bonus action dealing 1 piercing damage (this is considered magical for the purposes of overcoming resistances). If the attack hits the target must succeed on a constitution saving throw (DC is 10 + your proficiency bonus) or be stunned on their next turn. They have disadvantage if they have been already hit by this attack before, if they have been stunned before they automatically succeed in the save. This weapon gains one charge if the target is stunned. 

If you are attuned to this item you may spend any amount of charges from this item when casting a blood spell to subtract your constitution modifier from the damage being taken for each charge spent.

The Pithing Needle is often used to put down rioting beasts, however blood mages have learned to be able to channel its ability to disturb the flow of the body in order to fuel their own strength.
