You are a member of House DarkBlade, one of the great vampire orders. This
allows you to conjure a blade of shimmering darkness via the
which you can use to deadly effect in combat. House DarkBlade are the masters
of this weapon, and you therefore gain a +25 bonus to your Swords skill when
wielding a darkblade (although this bonus won't appear in your score). You
also gain the ability to wear up to 5 items each with 10 Shadow Taint.
Many members of House DarkBlade are deadly assassins - if you have the Assassin Training
talent, you'll be able to use your darkblade to perform backstabs and slit
throats, and your
stealth ability will provide rank 5 invisibility. If
you are a vampire using the Cloak of Shadows power, this talent will enhance
your Cloak's invisibility and Defence bonus by an additional 5 ranks.
