Blood Forging

Power category Vampire
Required powers Blood Legacy 5+
Banned powers Shadow Crafting

This power allows you to reforge metal weapons and armour, using your blood to imbue them with supernatural might. You can use this power on both magical and non-magical items, and the process will transform the material into bloodsteel.

If you use this power on a weapon, it will gain +1 Blood Taint and +1 bypass per rank. When the weapon inflicts damage it will soak up blood, causing it to throb and eventually pulsate. When throbbing the weapon grants +1 bypass for each rank you have in this power. When pulsating, it gets +2 bypass per rank.

If you use this power on armour, it will gain +1 Blood Taint, and +1% physical or energy soak (or +2% to a specific soak type) as well as half the soak value as auto-absorb, per rank. If the armour already has magical soak, that soak type will be used, otherwise heavy armour (breastplate, full helm, etc) will gain physical soak and other types of armour will gain energy soak.

You may reforge blood tainted items at any time, specifying how much taint you wish it to have, up to a maximum equal to your rank in this power. If you use items with a taint higher than your rank, each point of difference counts as 10 points of radiation. Non-vampires may use bloodsteel if the taint is removed.
