Tremble, fearful mortals, for the midnight hour chimes.
As the sun sets on the realms of the living, the midnight hosts march out from their lairs to prey on those who dare to enter their territory after dark. As ancient beasts and restless Vampires scour the woods around little towns looking for fresh prey, the watchmen who are there to protect the citizens can do nothing but pray that those who turned to the great houses of the shadow realm do not set their eyes upon them, for they are hopeless against the fangs of steel and knifed claws of the Blood thirsting hosts.
The arts of those who call themselves the red mages or vampires have been around as long as most mortal souls can remember. Their cults first appeared in the Attian Empire. There they set their eyes on the courts and positions of power as a vampire feels like they are destined to rule. Yet their curse of endless bloodlust has led to destruction as the god-king of the Attians swept away their influence in a great flood, leading to the demise of most organized hemomancy activity. The ancient text of the first red cults used to convert the first hemomancers has long been gone. Destroyed in the waters of the great floodings. These days, the most common folk tales left behind are that of vampires, striking on nights, being sly and steady killers before vampire hunters came to slay these beasts. It has been a long time since the last vampires were seen, but will they ever return? Or maybe did they ever really go away?
Learning and Teaching
The learning and teaching of the ways of the Hemomancer are becoming one in their fullest glory. Their training consists of obtaining the full extent of one's vampirical nature and living well with the downsides that come with it. Not many things are known about these rituals and lessons, but what can be said for certain is that it is the most painful magic to learn. The initiate hemomancer removes their blood and fills it with the corrupted, voidal blood of the servants of the Midnight Aristocracy. The teacher can teach their student up to 2 levels under their own. So only level 5 or higher teachers can train their students to level 3.
To reach level one, a teacher needs to have at least four sessions with their student, each being at least sixty minutes long. To obtain level two, the student must have another four lessons of sixty minutes. To finally reach level three and the ability to teach magic themselves, the students need to have another set of four sessions, each with a length of sixty minutes. Each day one session can be held by the teacher/be received by the student. After reaching level three, the student doesn't require additional sessions and will reach level four automatically after self-studying the magic for 6 months ICly, 12 days OOCly. When the mage is ready to side with a house of the midnight aristocracy they once more require to nurture their hemomantic powers through contact with the occult. If this is a success, the mage continued to self-study until it is time to reach the epitome of their magical powers and confront the occult once more.

|Damage||The caster binds themselves to the target with strings for D3 rounds, meaning the target cannot freely move away from the caster.
If the target does decide to move away from the target, they take 1 damage per meter traveled.
|Critical Failure||The caster gets entangled in the bloody threads around them, stumbling and unable to defend or attack the next round.|
|Critical Success||The strings are exceptionally made and stay for the maximum amount of rounds.|
|Red Lines||This spell costs 1 sanguine charge.|
|The mage creates several balls of blood from the blood siphoned from their Relic. They can fire these balls at single or multiple enemies at once. As these shots soak the bodies of the mage's targets, it also damages them intensely.|
|Damage||The mage creates D3 balls of blood that can be shot at a target or multiple targets from a distance.
Each shot deals D2 damage on hit and coats the target in their blood.
|Critical Failure||As the balls begin to form, they collapse on top of the caster, coating them in blood and slowing their movement by 3 meters for 1 round.|
|Critical Success||The mage creates all 3 balls instead of D3.|
|Red Lines||If the caster shoots more than 1 orb at the target, they only roll spell defense once against the caster's casting roll.|
|The caster empties its Sanguine Relic with the last of its charges. Causing a great outburst of blood droplets to venture outwards from the caster in a full circle. The blood drops cause damage and coating.|
|Damage||The caster empties its Sanguine Relic of its remaining charges. Each charge adds 1 damage to the casting. The charges fly outwards haphazardly in a circle of 10 meters around the caster. Those hit by the spell are coated by the blood as well.|
|Critical Failure||The caster empties the Relic of its charges, but the blood is shot upwards, through the caster, falling in the rain and dealing D2 damage to anyone in a 2-meter radius of the caster. The caster takes D4 damage.|
|Critical Success||The maximum range of the spell is increased to 15 meters.|
|Red Lines||This spell uses all the remaining charges in the Relic.
Both allies and enemies in the area have to roll defense.
|The caster sends forth a sharp thin string of solid blood that hinges inside a target. The other end of the string is hinged into another target or the caster themselves. The two entities that are linked share the damage they take.|
|Damage||The caster shoots a string of condensed blood from their Sanguine Relic costing a charge towards a single target or towards two targets, linking their vitalities for D3+2 rounds.
If the target is a single target, then only the target rolls to defend against the spell. If successful, the mage shares the damage they take with this single target.
If there are two targets, then both targets roll a D20 intelligence. They resist the spell if the combined number is 21 or above. If they fail to resist the spell, then they will share the damage among themselves.
If the damage number is not an even number, then the attack's target takes the extra point of damage. (For example, 3 damage is shared 2 to 1, the target taking more damage.)
|Critical Failure||A Sanguine Relic charge is lost, and the mage is stunned for 1 round.|
|Critical Success||The spell lasts for the maximum duration.|
|Red Lines||This spell costs 1 sanguine charge. Only 1 link can be active at the same time.|
|Heir of Blood|
|The caster opens a tear connected to the blood pool within the House of Blood in Lilith. Blood comes out of the tear covering everyone and anything in a large radius of the tear. The caster becomes one with this blood and can move freely to any spot that is covered within the area.|
|Damage||The caster opens a new tear connected to a blood pool within Lilith. This will cover the field within a 20-meter radius of the tear in all directions for D4+4 rounds.
The caster can dissolve themselves within this blood and appear anywhere on the battlefield using the bloody terrain. When the caster moves in this way, their sanguine relic gains a charge. The caster can roll intelligence for every defense type inside this bloody terrain.
|Critical Failure||The caster opens the pool, but the tear quickly loses stability and implodes, causing an acidic blood explosion that deals 5 damage to anyone within a 2-meter reach of the tear. The caster at ground zero of the implosion area is at risk of losing a limb.|
|Critical Success||The terrain lasts for the maximum amount of rounds.|
|Red Lines||A Loremaster is required to attempt casting this spell. The spell can only be attempted to cast once every OOC week.|
|Ichor Friend (Hemomancy)|
|The mage can freely control small amounts of blood to do their bidding, having them float around in an area or creating small familiar from the blood. The familiars can be used in battle to absorb 1 HP of damage. Then they will turn into a bloody puddle and won't reactivate until the caster can use the ability again.|
|Effect||The caster can control blood to do small things or make blood familiars. The blood familiar can take up to 1 HP of damage and then disappears until the cooldown refreshes. If the caster already has a familiar, they can spend their next action to create another. If they have 3 familiars, they also gain +1 to Intelligence.|

The caster can have a maximum of 3 blood familiars.

If the ability is used at night, the mage increases their melee range to 5 meters. If 3 hits land in a row, then the caster regains 1HP.
|Red Lines||At lvl 10 Hemomancy, this ability will always be active, and you need to perform a successful D20 int roll to hide the nails in public. If the mage rolls a 7 or above they can retract their nails back into their body.|
|Crimson Eyes (House of the Night)|

|Blood Sucker (House of the Night)|
|The mage gains the ability to regain life forces from consuming blood. They can expend one charge of the Sanguine Relic or bite someone else in their neck to gain life force. They can also bite someone and fill up a charge of the Sanguine Relic instead.|

|Effect||The mage is immune to fall damage.|
|Red Lines||The ability can only be activated if the mage is conscious.|
|Claws (House of the Beast)|
|The mage uses their corrupted blood to turn their hands into ferocious claws that are hard as steel. Capable of clashing with swords and causing nasty cuts on a target.|
|Effect||The caster turns their hands into claws, dealing an extra +1 damage on every successful unarmed hit. The claws are dense as steel and can cause nasty slashes. If the caster successfully hits a target 3 times in a row with the claws, the target starts bleeding and will lose 1 additional HP.|
|Red Lines||At lvl 10 Hemomancy, this ability will always be active, and you need to perform a successful spell effectiveness roll to hide the claws in public.|

They may choose from a scaled coat which will give them +2 to defense rolls.
They may choose from a fur coat that will give them +2 HP over their max amount.
They may choose from a spiked coat that will give them a +2 to melee rolls.
Once a coat has been activated, it stays for 5 rounds, unable to use the ability again for 2 OOC hours.

|Red Lines||If there are others with the move first ability, the people with the ability roll initiative first.|
|Blood Flame (House of Blood)|
|The caster controls their blood so that their blood becomes combustible. If the mage was hurt in the melee range of an enemy, the blood would have spread to them. The caster can decide when to combust their blood on will.|
|Range||This Mage's blood stains|
|Effect||The caster's blood is dangerous and combustible using a special blood composition. Anyone who lands a melee-attack on the mage will be coated in their blood. Upon activation, anyone stained by the caster's blood will receive the burning effect.
