Disadvantages
Vampiric Devil - Abraxas depends on blood and consumption of souls to maintain his health. He must consume at least two quarts of blood per week, and 1 soul per month to sustain himself. He is weakened if he is deprived of these needs, and if he starves (-1 stamina per day without blood, -10 stamina per month without a soul, starvation at 0 stamina); he slips into a comatose state. Revive with +1 stamina per quart of blood, +5 stamina per soul. HP loss of -100 per -1 stamina lost to starvation. HP loss will not fall below 50 from starvation however, as body slips into hiberation..
Despair - He suffers severe bouts of despair, sometimes seeming for no reason at all. He is unable to control these episodes of depression. 20% chance a day.
Rage - once his rage is provoked, it is hard to curtail. His rage boosts his strength (+5), but also blinds him to all but a few who can reach him past a frenzied state.
Phobic - of being dominated or imprisoned. He also has a fear of being violated and if he feels threatened on a personal level his fear either turns to rage, or dread, depending on the being he is confronted with.
Anti-social - he does not get along with others well, with a few exceptions, though he can also be very charming. It all depends on his mood.
Nemesis - Mekkor
Enemies - The Alamascan order of angels and possibly Caine
Mark of Possession - His soul and flesh bear the Morning Star's mark, thus his will and destiny can be controlled by Lucifer if he chooses to do so.
Fixed Destiny - Angel of Despair, he cannot escape being Guardian of Hell's Gate but by one very difficult path he is currently clueless of.
Psychotic - Suffers schitzophrenic attacks, or an extreme urge to hunt and kill a random stranger from time to time, -10 on all Mental Checks but intelligence during delusional episodes, and -10 to logic during predatory episodes.
Livid Nightmares - shakes his constitution (-10) for awhile after waking, even for an entire day if nightmares were extreme.

10-{28-30} Abyssal Decay - Mage can devour blood, will, essence, soul by touch through opening a metaphysical vacuum within themselves, decaying their victim rapidly.
11-{31-35} Blood Cauldron
Stage One - Mage can create a blood cauldron, out of an ordinary cauldron, by invoking Saolinín Dirgban the Goddess of Blood, with an offering of half their blood. When the goddess is invoked she tells the mage to spill their blood into the cauldron. The goddess in turn awakens the spirits of life and death inside the cauldron, of creation and ends. The goddess also protects the cauldron 44 d6-LoD vs. Power to Destroy or affect cauldron.The only blood within the cauldron is four pints of the mage's blood as it was first offered. If this blood is ever spilled out of the cauldron, the mage must offer half his/her blood to the cauldron again. Stamina is only paid ONCE to this cauldron, to invoke the goddess the first time. After that the cauldron feeds on blood offerings and its master's will.
Stage Two - The mage's will slowly becomes the cauldron's, and visa-versa, and no one but the mage who created the cauldron can command it. Blood must be given to the cauldron to activate its powers, in the amount of one pint for every command given the cauldron. All Blood Sorcery spells cast through the Cauldron are automatically sealed and proofed against disenchantments (+2), and can be cast at level 35. The cauldron soaks all blood spilled into it. When all the mage's will is gone, the cauldron turns the mage into a Shadow Lich. Cauldron uses -1 Willpower per command used through the cauldron.
Stage Three - The mage's will is returned to them as a Lich, while all the Shadow Lich's arcane power and a great deal of their life force is transferred to a secret object to form their phylactery, or vital force. This object must be destroyed to destroy the Shadow Lich. The cauldron's TRUE power is unlocked as the mage becomes a Lich. Through the cauldron the Lich can command any of their powers, formulate Blood Sorcery powers, enchant items with existing or formulated commands, create wards and artifacts, enslave others, kill them, even mutate, or create monsters out of other creatures, learn and practice Necromancy with up to 4 spells in each level. In a word...Shadow Liches are POWERFUL, and very difficult to kill. These Liches have a strong tendency to be as hungry for power as for blood and souls, and are not very nice with rare exceptions. It was an extreme lust for power which got them where they are in the first place, after all. See Shadow Lich Page.
12-{36} Tribute of Life - Shadow Lich only. Lich offers a victim to their Blood Cauldron to enhance cauldron's power, or to regain some of their former vampiric appearance. if the cauldron has devoured the blood, souls, and lives of 10 victims by the time the Lich reaches level 40, they gain a subrace shift, although IN this shift, they can only command levels 1-35. Tribute of Life powers the cauldron by +4 otherwise.
12-{37-40} God of Blood - Shadow Lich can call on the power of the cauldron even at a distance to improve their powers, and can Cast any Blood Sorcery or Necromantic powers at these levels when mastered.

Power boosted by Logic vs. Logic.

On a Failure: illusionist's own illusion becomes their own reality for time=to number of successes. IF manipulation fumbles the illusionist is struck with a terrible backlash which sends them plummeting into a state of utter deluded insanity. Roll for Duration.
