We’re playing RPG and I made a character who’s a master in Hemomancy (Bloodbending) :> Today I managed to show off some of his abilities during the session, so I thought it would be cool to draw him using it.
I 100% thought of you when I was brainstorming, because it involved the idea of primitive blood magic as a cheap knockoff of hemomancy. 👀 Brynmoore has developed a hatred for magic since, so much so that he buried his grief in studies of alchemy.
Liliana was an odd lady. She was rather sociable, and always had a story to tell. Most people figured it was jsut her making up things, since she always had a new one, every single time someone asked for one. However only those who listened many times and got to know her would find out she was over eleven hundred years old. She was born with an ageless gene thanks to her father being essentially a demon, and once she hit twenty, she stopped aging. which was ncie, but she often moved from place to place, so not too many people realized.
She spent most of her time at the hospital though, using her hemomancy to heal others. primarily in the ER, stopping internal bleeding, or keeping apatients heart beating manually was an incredible skill. However, she often broke dress code, wearing dresses, and very little official cltohes, no lab coat, no scrubs, jsut dresses and cute things.
Which was helpeful as she had encountered someone outside who refused to go in. taking her time she would help them personally for no charge, and send them on their way… only to notice a girl staring at her. She wouldn’t approach, but instead she woudl wave before beckoning her closer
Over a flat stone, burn a bough of cedar or some dried burdock shoots. Break up the remains and rake the ash into an even bed. Add some salt if you think it necessary.
The inexperienced soothsayer might be tempted to use sand, flour, or any number of other fine, granular mediums, but must resist the temptation! Calling forth spirits - especially with blood magic - is a dangerous business, and using such substitutes can cause grave insult, resulting in bad fortune.
The two participants must each make a single cut into the other’s flesh with the same blade, spilling blood into the ash. Examine for markings to determine the nature of the participants’ relationship in the future.
LaLuna was out one night when she saw someone bleed, left to dead. She rushed over to the dying man and saw the blood oozing out and gasped. She quickly worked her magic and the blood that was already spilled she used it to form a sort of blood clot so that they would heal. She paused herself when she felt a presence behind her.
“I see you’ve managed to undo the death I so desperately attempted to ensure.” Vlad stopped a few feet behind her, watching the mage sew life back into the man. He was familiar with other forms of healing, those that rejuvenated the body and breathed life where there had once been void.
This was different. He could sense the woman was actually making the blood coagulate under the influence of her magic. His gaze hardened, a flicker of curiosity threaded through his chest. He was familiar with Talon’s own form of slight hemomancy - but this was different. Talon seemed to be able to command the blood to continue to bleed out.. while this woman was able to cease it.
“..Do you have..” he began, an incredulous expression phasing across his face, “..a primary form of Hemomancy?” The sheer curiosity slightly lessened the annoyance at her saving the life of the man he had just tried to kill.
