"Take this, and this, and this, and a little more of this..." -Quote from a blood mage who cast too many spells.
Blood Lords are usually people who has excessive pride and confidence in their abilities, so much so that they have resorted to using their own life's essence to cast spells. A blood mage usually recognizes that manipulating the essence of life can be a dangerous endeavor. However, there have been numerous instances of blood mages both weak and powerful who have met demise thinking they could cast 1 more spell only for the spell to fail at an unfortunate time because they lacked the necessary sacrifice to cast the spell. No harm, no foul eh, well maybe a lot harm is needed for a spell to work.
