[New Spell] Stained by Their Blood

Stained by Their Blood

Akul the Elusive whispered his newfound spell as he sat in the tavern mulling over his ale. It was a rough night and several demi-humans were carousing and enjoying some recent victory of some time.

‘Human,’ the illusionist said at the terminus of his incantation.

The room seemed to glow red to the spellcaster suddenly as nearly every being in the room looked at their hands and then glared around the room. Akul noticed several eyes focusing on him and narrowing menacingly. With a blinding flash the illusionist was gone and much wiser about how he would test new spells in the future.

Stained by Their Blood (Illusionist)

Level 2

Range: 10’+5’/level.

Duration: One turn (ten minutes) per level of caster or until dispelled.

This enchantment reveals where a particular subject has slain a specific species named by the caster when the spell is cast, this manifests as reddish, bloodlike stains on the target’s hands, paws, mouth, etc. The caster also decides whether just they see the results of this spell or all within close range can see, although the target of the spell will see their hands turn red as well regardless. Creatures of Animal Intelligence receive no Saving Throw while those more intelligent may Save versus Spells to resist this magic.

    I feel like adventurers would use this mostly to establish bragging rights on what rare life forms they’ve murdered during their careers, and to settle arguments about exactly who landed the killing blow on the last big bad the party massacred. Sure, it’s probably meant to see who’s a killer in a mystery adventure or something, but murder hobos find away to misuse everything. 🙂
