Though feared as much as any undead, not all blood magic options are tied to the Necrosphere. While neccromancy is only demonized by the Universal Orders, true blood magic is shunned by both the Universal and Metropolitan Orders. Alternate forms of blood magic are integral parts of eastern and rakasta and cultures, however.
Bloodrage Savage (Barbarian)
Blood Thrall (Fighter)
Bloodline Sorcery (Sorcerer)
Blood Magic (Wizard)
There are two forms of this arcane tradition presented here--the original, which was the one spotlighted in Unearthed Arcana ("Version 1"); as well as the author's revision ("Version 2"). Conceptually, I prefer "Version 1," which requires a wizard to spend hit dice in order to activate blood magic abilities; and this is the version I will allow in Monvesia. I, of course, reserve the right to switch to "Version 2" if, as the author suggests, "Version 1" proves to be overpowered in too many situations.
Half-Spawn (Universal Subrace)
Players wishing for undead characters are encouraged to pursue the Revenant subrace instead.
