is a form of sacrificial magic
that relies on the magic, power, and energy found within the blood of living creatures. It is widely feared and outlawed throughout Imbria
and beyond. For many people, it elicits visceral feelings of revulsion.
The blood used in spells can be from the caster or from a donor. Donors include other witch
, or even animals.
Blood magic is powerful and versatile; it can be used to enact many different effects and can be used concurrently with other magic types
and a wide varity of spells. Possibilities include scrying, leaching energy and magic from others, locator spells, and even protections and healing spells. It is especially useful for augmenting a witch's spells and abilities.
Blood magic can provide short-term or longer-term benefits, however the strength and longevity of spells can vary and be difficult to predict. The duration of these effects depend on several factors include the power and ability of the caster, the type of spell being performed, the power and ability of the donor, the amount of blood used, and many more factors.
The ultimate form or stage of blood magic is rumored to be vampirism.
