Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Bloodmages are proficient with all simple weapons. They are not proficient with any type of armor or shield.
Spells: Bloodmages prepare spells just like a Wizard. Intelligence is used for DC saves and bonus spells and having access to spell levels. Bloodmages choose their spells from the Sorcerer & Wizard, and Witch list:
Blood magic is the ability to use blood in rituals that are beyond the norm of sorcery and wizardry. Whenever you use one of your blood magic abilities you must sacrifice blood from yourself or others or dead creatures. If the creature is alive it takes damage of 1d6 per size category of whatever is the subject or area that you are affecting with the blood magic ritual. If the target is smaller than the small size the damage will still be 1d6. You learn one blood magic ability per even level of Bloodmage. To cast blood magic will take 10 minutes unless stated.
Bloodline barrier: Using your blood you can prevents intruders from gaining access to certain areas as if you’re putting a wall of force around the area or object. Only those of your bloodline may enter or the bloodline of whoever’s blood is being used. This blood magic has a time limit of 24 hours for the effects and unless you remake the ritual again or for more blood which means you will take another round of damage. The effects of this blood magic can be ended anytime you wanted. You must have blood requirements and must be of Bloodmage level of 5.
Blood preservation: You can preserve blood that has been extracted from the living. The magic that preserves it will make container cold to the touch and the blood inside will be preserved as long as the vessel that is contained in is not open.
Blood requirement: You can bypass enchanted item requirements for race by using the blood of the race that is required into a vile that allows anyone who possesses this vile will be able to access the requirements of any item that requires the specific race to use it enchantments.
Blood walk: Your blood mage can dive into another living creatures bloodstream and be inside of their body as a standard action. Once you do this you take no damage when you’re inside of the creature and when you jump out as a standard action the creature takes +1d6 bleeding damage per Bloodmage level.
Blood weapon: Sacrificing your blood you can create a weapon or shield of your choice as a standard action. The weapon or shield will have a +1 blood bonus starting at level 1 Bloodmage and every five levels after starting at 5, 10, 15, and 20. Shields that are created do not have an arcane spell failure. This effect lasts one minute per Bloodmage level.
Creature infusion: You can take the blood of a creature of any kind and altering the blood to where whoever drinks it will obtain some of the powers of the creature that’s the blood came from. This effect lasts one minute per Bloodmage level. When it comes to numeric of facts that are created by the creature such as a breath weapon you can use up to half of what you’re Bloodmage level is. Example you obtain a breath weapon that has 10d6 damage and your Bloodmage level is 8th level you will only be able to use 4d6 of that breath weapon. This also applies to other bonuses such as natural armor. Selecting an attribute is also selecting a special ability you only can obtain the biggest attributes that equal each other or are separated by 1. A single +2 increase counts as a single Bloodmage level. So, in other words if you select a special ability that is an attribute you only increase by a +2 on that attribute. You only can obtain the same amount of special abilities from that creature that equals half your Bloodmage level. You must be a Bloodmage of level 6 or higher.
Extract blood elemental: You can summon blood elementals. Either you could take blood from fallen enemies and create blood elementals or sacrifice your own blood or cause enough damage to kill an enemy that allows you to create a blood elemental from their own blood. If you do not kill the enemy when using this power, then the only thing that happens is that they take damage and no blood elemental is created. The blood elemental becomes a water elemental of the same size as the creature that died. And if you’re using blood from fallen creatures to form a blood elemental the fallen creatures could add up together to be a size category that your GM will state. When you cause damage to an enemy, they take 1d6 per Bloodmage level. Enemies may make a fortitude save for half of the damage if they succeed. DC fortitude save 10+ ½ Bloodmage level + intelligence modifier. You can take damage for each dice that is being used to damage you will count as a size category. You only take damage to a maximum of 6d6. 1d6 is for small and every +1d6 after that will increase the size category of water elemental which will be called a blood elemental. You use water elemental for the stats of the blood elemental. The blood elemental will evaporate after one minute after being summoned. You must be a level 10 Bloodmage or higher.

You cannot apply your abilities when you’re in control of the body and you cannot access memories of the creature. Must have blood walk and have 10 levels of Bloodmage.
Greater Blood weapon: Same as Blood weapon except now you can choose to either increase the amount of dice for damage of the weapon or increase the critical threat range or increase the critical damage multiplier or range distance if it has any.

If you choose to increase the critical threat range, you reach critical with one dice number in your weapons critical threat range. The critical multiplier can increase by a +1. If you increase the range of your weapon increases by 100% if it’s a thrown weapon if it’s a projectile being thrown from something like a longbow then it increases by 50%.

Meta-spell blood: You can sacrifice your own blood to place meta-feats when casting a spell. You take +1d6 bleeding damage for each spells lot increased by a meta-feat. this does not take up a spell slots level higher than the spells level when doing this. You must tell your GM when you’re doing this. This ability takes no time to use.
Rebirth: At 8th level, a Bloodmage can prepare a clone of himself that awakens if he is slain. Creating the clone costs 5,000 gp, takes 1 week of work, and requires 3 additional weeks for the clone to grow to maturity.
