    Lightbulb [Spell] They ran red down his cheeks...

    Bloody Weeping
    Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-Affecting]
    Level: Bard 6, Cleric 7
    Components: V, S, F/DF
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Touch
    Area: Creature touched
    Duration: 1 round/level & 1 day/level; see text
    Saving Throw: Will partial; see text
    Spell Resistance: Yes

    For 1 round/level your touch causes your opponent to experience such intense psychological stress that they literally begin to weep tears of blood and sweat it from their pores. The target is effectively nauseated, exhausted and dazzled and take 1d6 non-lethal damage per round. Upon a successful save the target still takes 2 penalty on attack rolls, saving throws, ability checks, skill checks, and weapon damage rolls.

    For 1 day/level every time the target would encounter a stressful situation, such as anything requiring a Charisma-based check, entering combat, or taking damage, they must succeed on another save or be affected as above. Damage and penalties do not stack.

    Bloody weeping dispels good hope.

    If the target allows it or is rendered helpless a vial of this blood may be collected and can be used as a material component to cast spells of the Death, Mind, or Repose domain at +1 caster level.

    Focus: Shred of clothing, pinch of ashes, or other remnants of a martyr.

    So this spell has a permanent effect beyond the initial effect, of causing the spell to be repeated when the victim's under emotional stress? Nasty nasty nasty.... for a PC to get. As for an NPC, it'd make for an awesome story for when he next meets the PC's.

    Is there any way to remove the secondary effect?

    No, no permanent effect. It can just successfull make the save... and if while within the spell's duration something happens to cause stress they have to make a whole new save or get the full effects.

    So, if they succeed on the initial save, they must continue succeeding on saves to avoid the effect for one round per caster level?

    Just as a note: Generally, bleeding is considered lethal damage. Since, you know, you die if you do too much of it.

    Creeeepy. But should that be "[b]counters and dispels good hope"? You've only got dispelling down, but I would think the countering would be more important... otherwise you have cheery, hope-filled people weeping blood.

    Wow, very scary, I love it, especially the material component. Inspired.

    The time on it is a little short for that returning ability. I'd up it to 1 minute / level, or you'll be in combat with the caster of it for the duration of the spell.

    Well, he's not bleeding THAT much.

    Whoops... will adjust.

    Dunno, thats an awful long time to have those penalties and be taking damage.

    Does someone count as a martyr if they've been rezzed? Could you just have a contingent The tears: when used as a material component, do they replace that original component, or are they just another component? If they do replace it, how do they interact with expensive material components? Can you use multiple vials of the tears, and have their effects stack? Could you create a factory for the stuff?

    perhaps after the initial effect expires, a persistant effect lasts for 1 day/caster level: the spell "sleeps" but can be reawoken by stressful situations (will save negates), causing Tears of Blood to return for 1 round.
    "River" cancels eat: Food is problematic.

    I love it, sounds like a long lost 2E spell, this version is fine as it is but do you think you could come up with a permament version with less severe effects?
