    Default AD&D Sangromancer/Bloodmage Class

    Hey everyone! I'm new here, this being my first post, and I want to show you an AD&D class I made last year for one of my friends who I ran a game for. A few things to understand are that I use quite a few homebrew rules, mostly that my father uses whenever he DMs games, so if there are some aspects that are there, or invisible rules I seem to be following, please point it out, and I will either fix it or give in detail the rule I follow that makes the wording required. One such rule is the "can't cast within melee range of others" rule, spells that require somatic components(movement) need to be exact, and thus even those in combat with others can stop the spell with a small bump, causing the need of a save versus magic for the wizard to not lose the spell from their memory. This also means spells can't be cast while wearing armor unless it has no somatics. Any ranged or melee damage will have the same effect. In the beginning, I will post a class description, as well as the current working spell list, for your viewing, commenting, and correcting leisure.

    o Sacrifice 50 hp as much as you want to increase the damage and duration by the original length/damage dealt

    o You cram a spell into another’s head, allowing those who can’t usually cast to be able to. You may put one spell you have in memory into the targets memory, however this spell level can’t be higher level than your Sangromancer level -11. Doing this removes the spell from your memory.

    o Casting time 1 turn
    o Range touch
    o Ritual
    o Cannot be boosted
    • Deteriorate Body
    o The target drops dead and rotten, the target gets a saving throw, but on fail and without magic resistance they will die.

Alignment score: chaotic is -1, evil -1, neutral +0, lawful +1 good +1 if good sangromancer, reversed if the alignment is evil, neutral same as good. Every 1 above 0 on your alignment score heals a d20 health, every one below 0 deals d20 damage, can only be cast once a week.

    o Casting time 1 round
    o Duration instantaneous

    The Sangromancer uses both the power of blood and darkness to defeat his or her foes. They are battle mages, all spells that aren’t rituals requiring only verbal components, allowing combat casting, however they aren’t good for much other than killing things. They are a subclass of the magic-user, but the use the constitution bonuses of fighters, and are thus stronger, even though the use d4s for hit points and have the same hit dice as magic-users. They, like magic users, use intelligence to both gage how high level spells they can cast, and what their chance to learn a spell, and they get a 10% xp bonus if they have at least 16 constitution. They also gain levels and spells at the same rate as magic-users. As a subclass of magic-users, they can use any non-written magic items magic-users can use. They roll money the same as magic-users, and the class is considered illegal almost everywhere, and thus they must get their materials from the black market, which, like a thief, they have access to. They cannot be Dwarves, Halflings, or Gnomes, as they do not have much blood. Their armor won’t affect spells, allowing combat casting, however they can only be proficient with staff, dagger, and blood weapons (see spells) created by them, and can only use them in melee, and have a -2 to hit when throwing daggers. Due to special training, Sangromancers don’t bleed, and to choose spells, they roll 3 d6, get the corresponding spells, reroll repeats, and they get the draw blood cantrip and read magic. Sangromancers sacrifice life to power up their spells, how is specified for each spell. When casting, you must state how much blood you want to pour into a spell before the effect takes place, ex: With drain life, you can’t roll damage to see if you gain more life than sixteen, then if you do decide to boost it. When sacrificing hp, you can only sacrifice down to 0 hp, then you fall unconscious if you do sacrifice that much life. Every 15 levels your hp is worth 1 more for casting spells, lvl 15 1 hp = 2 hp for spells, 30 1 hp = 3 hp for spells, ect.

    These are the differences between a normal vampire and one made from a sangromancer casting the rite of vampirism, anything not mentioned is the same as the monster manual entry for the vampire.


    • No level drain
    • No immunities
    • No natural regeneration
    • In sunlight only losses vampiric abilities and takes 1d4 damage per turn
    • When using bite attack on humanoids they gain regen 2(2 hp per round) for d4 rounds, animals regen 1(1 hp per round) for d4 rounds, and in special cases, such as undead or blood less creatures, no regen
    • Bite attack does only d8 damage
    • No gaseous form or returning to their coffin to regenerate
    • No gaze charm
    • Bat form can’t attack, only fly and turn back into a vampire
    • No animal entourage
    • Healing spells damage
    • Garlic and mirrors have no effect
    • Religious artifacts still cause d4 rounds of hesitation
    • Killed normally, if goes to -10 hit points or lower dead in one round
    • Holy water still does 1d6+1 damage
    • Cannot become invisible at will
    • Cannot create new vampires
    • Has vampire thrall spell, same as charm person, once per day, lasts one week and will instead of treating the vampire as a best friend, will treat as a master and will act as a servant, providing blood, engaging in combat, or even committing suicide if told, forgets everything at the end of the charm and each creature can be charmed only once by each vampire. Can use once a day and only on non-violent subjects
    • Keeps race and all bonuses, close inspection will reveal vampirism
    • Counts as undead
    • Change second part of alignment to evil, keeping lawful neutral or chaotic
    • No close inspection needed to tell vampirism in sunlight, the obvious pain from the light makes it pretty clear
    • Flight only in bat form
    • Flight only goes at normal movement speed, AC bonuses come from automatic 18 dexterity in bat form, but no armor or magic equipment bonuses
    • Can only carry 50 pounds in bat form, but objects change along with vampire
    • Cannot change to bat form while over encumbered
    • Animals untrained to be used to that specific vampire will become very uneasy around them
    • Animal blood regen cannot heal past quarter max health

    Woohoo, AD&D! Good stuff, you've got loads of material here. I won't comment on the balance so much, but I'll say it seems pretty creepy (in a good way :D). Have you played any Ravenloft? I think it'd fit right in.

    This is kind of immediately after, but I looked up Ravenloft, and it seems like a cool addition! I'm not much of one for gothic stuff, and the class was designed at the request of one of my friends, but the dark theme seems to match quite well with the Sangromancer class!

    I'm also open to spell suggestions, after a year of working on it, I'm kind of running out. Proof of this being my most recent spell, Mutilate Dead. All feedback welcome, thank you!

    New spell!!

    4th level:

    • Share Life
    o You and a willing target link your life, making so that both of your life pools are increased to the combined amount of your total life. However, any time one of you would take damage, the other does as well. For example, a 20 hp sangromancer share life’s a 45 hp fighter, they then both have 65 hp, however, if the fighter takes 10 damage, both the fighter and the sangromancer have 55 hp left. Also, if either were to be healed, both would be healed the same amount, basically their life totals are always going to be the same.
    o Casting time 3 segments
    o Duration 2 rounds per level
    o Range 1”
    o Sacrifice 10 life(this will be dealt to all the linked, for it damages the sangromancer which then the life combines) to add another willing target.

    Hmm, I didn't think about that... Maybe, max life decreases to normal, off your life is over you drop to max life, but if it's under you keep that life total, this way is more devastating to the tougher linkies, which was kinda what I was aiming for

    Although Maybe the damage taken total could be split by the number of people in the split round down, then dealt to everyone from their max health. That makes more sense.

    Does AD&D have temporary HP, like 3e's Vampiric Touch uses? If not, losing it over time, maybe points per minute, maybe using a formula of some sort like taking the square root plus two, would let it de-squishy the class for a fight or two.

    I don’t understand AD&D rules enough to suggest mechanics, so I really only have ideas. But they're nice ideas!

    One of them is replacing some of the life costs with a class feature to use spells with health instead of spell slots, maybe preceded by increasing effects beyond the spell descriptions like adding extra damage dice, then shifting the removed life costs to 5e style upcasting, where the spell gets more effectiveness with higher level slots. No idea how much wording would be needed to do that in AD&D.

    One spell idea I have is making a mechanically-simplified creature out of blood. Instead of a full statline, just the information relevant to making attacks and being harmed. Not even ability scores, just AC, HP, movement, damage and THAC0. Maybe saving throws. The statline could adjust with the damage done by casting it, with the caster being able to contribute precise amounts of their own health to it.
    My most liked class, thematically, is the Artificer. Make free items! (fail by RAW to)Hold up the setting! Have access to every magic item...
    My most liked class, mechanically, is the Bard. I sing the enemy to death! (at level 21)I talk you into a suicidal fanatic! I need to cheese rules that make me sing as I fight or talk to get things done...

    I prefer t2 over anything else, because t2 lets you become anything. I think Psionics is more versatile than magic.

    I've seen people doing the higher spell slot more power thing, with the health cost to level it up, but I think I'm going to stick with this idea for now. I dont have much under standing of 5e rules, so correct me if I'm wrong about how I interpret you're comment, please. As for the creature idea, there kind of already is one, although not exactly what you're suggesting, and one of my friends suggested something similar, so I'll look into it, oh, and the spell I referanced a second ago were the various blood bend spells. Thanks for the suggestions, yet again, if I have something wrong, please let me know!

    I would like suggestions for some lower and some WAY HIGHER power spells, because the 1st and 2nd level spells are kind of lacking, and I want to add in an 8th level spell list! If you don't know AD&D, you don't really need to to suggest spells! A couple of my favorites, blood buff and Krul's blessing(although blood buff isn't in the list due to just being a weaker version of Krul's blessing) came from a friend who had never played D&D before, and had very little knowledge of it. If you do suggest spells, I will credit you in the spell, along with anyone else who influenced the spell design, including my personal friends and the other forum posts! First up, is going to be the Blood Creature spell, which you will find below:

    Level 5:


    Blood Creature:

    You create a creature from blood, any you have seen with your own eyes before, not through magic such as scrying, and it will serve you until death or the end of the spell. This creature can be a quarter of your current level, round down, hit dice, and will be just like another of that creature in the wild you might find, however any produced substances, such as poison or acid will turn to regular blood after the duration of the spell. This creature cannot be of a unique nature, such as gods or high-ranking demons.

    Casting time 3 segments
    Duration 2 rounds/lvl
    Range 1"

    Sacrificing 5 hp will add 1 hit dice to the max hit dice of summonable creature, HOWEVER! If the Sangromancer does not provide enough blood for the hit dice of the creature, it is lost, and the spell fails, and the Sangromancer will not be informed by the spell of the creature they are attempting to summon, but if they have previously cast sense life on said creature, they will know. Regardless, the summoned creature will have hit dice = to the hit dice the sangromancer sacrificed for, although this will not increase health.

    Credit: Morphic tide, R(Personal friend, I don't want to give their name without permission, so R will stand for this friend for now, until they get a forum account)

First up, is going to be the Blood Creature spell, which you will find below:
    Well, one of the main inspiration for my ideas comes from Warcraft's various kinds of Blood Magic.

    The Warcraft 3 Blood Mage Hero, for example, can actually drain mana from enemies that decays over time. It also has the ability to make a Pheonix that's usually more directly dangerous than the mage at level 6, out of 10 levels that Warcraft 3 heroes have, though that Pheonix loses health over time and eventually ends up as an egg, which takes some 30 seconds to "hatch" back into the Pheonix.

    These two spells would be useful to have in general for 2e. The "mana drain" would work well as a 3rd or 4th level spell that drains two or three spell levels per round from the target, allowing the Sangromancer to restore their own spell slots if they face an enemy spellcaster. Of course, taking damage would probably cancel it, and going over would only give a round or two to use excess slots. The Pheonix spell would probably work best as just a HD=level version of the Blood Creature spell, possibly with an added clause making the created creature become a gem upon "death" that can be used to remake the creature at a lower cost. Maybe an 8th level spell to start with, then having restoring it be a 5th level spell slot and either half as much health as initial casting or having the creature come back with the normal casting cost for it coming out of its own health. Slap a cost equivalence based on HD and you can even have the gems be used as loot, giving the party access to a somewhat efficient means of acquiring reusable "hirelings" that are actually worth a damn.

    Maybe an alternate casting mode for the Pheonix stand-in spell that lets it be used to turn existing, real, creatures into the blood-gems to cut costs of casting and bypassing the "unique nature" restriction. Sure, you have to chain that God or Demon Lord and successfully melt them down into a pretty jewel, but now you have a permanently enslaved God or Demon Lord serving you. Good for super high level campaigns where you kinda need to have stuff like enslaved Demon Lords for the casters to avoid getting splattered. A replacement for this as the de-squishing of the Sangromancer would be to have the alternative casting mode instead be a Polymorph-style effect, turning the caster into the creature imprinted on the gem, with all statistics being as most beneficial. This makes it competitive with being one step below Wish, at least.

    Another thing is Life Tap. Quite simply trading life for mana, which means trading HP for spell slots in D&D. Would make for a useful class feature, or even high-level spell because of how it can loop, making avoiding it's certain access a significant priority. Maybe put it in a kit, somewhere... Really, having "sets" of spells to turn into class features for particular specialist kits that focus on that type of magic for better scaling, like having it be effect per spell level instead of a fixed effect, makes the class reliable to a pretty good extent and a bit less able to be ruined by a killer DM. Kinda suprised at the lack of 2e kits, PF archetypes and 5e subclasses on the homebrew.

    *snip*
    The exclusion of being "of a unique nature" on the recreated creature is slightly ambiguous, but the example of Gods and Demon Lords suggests that "yourself, but at 1/4 your current level" should be valid. Which isn't all that crazy, given what I know of the lethality of 2e and the fact the duration won't allow a large number of spells to be cast, and those must be castable at a quarter of your current level. Useful for extra low-level slots, and at high levels it allows for a temporary measure of 3.5's infamous duplicate shenanigans by having the copies cast the spell themselves for even more copies, but the duration limit of... 60 rounds? 2e goes to level 30, right? Duration keeps it from getting entirely crazy.

    Being able to make a lower-level copy of the party healer to top off your health is, of course, an obvious means of making the party a bit less likely to just end up dead, as well as recovering the various HP costs this class has. Higher level means more spells being able to be used from longer duration, and of higher level due to more HD.
    My most liked class, thematically, is the Artificer. Make free items! (fail by RAW to)Hold up the setting! Have access to every magic item...
    My most liked class, mechanically, is the Bard. I sing the enemy to death! (at level 21)I talk you into a suicidal fanatic! I need to cheese rules that make me sing as I fight or talk to get things done...

Kinda suprised at the lack of 2e kits, PF archetypes and 5e subclasses on the homebrew.


    The exclusion of being "of a unique nature" on the recreated creature is slightly ambiguous, but the example of Gods and Demon Lords suggests that "yourself, but at 1/4 your current level" should be valid. Which isn't all that crazy, given what I know of the lethality of 2e and the fact the duration won't allow a large number of spells to be cast, and those must be castable at a quarter of your current level. Useful for extra low-level slots, and at high levels it allows for a temporary measure of 3.5's infamous duplicate shenanigans by having the copies cast the spell themselves for even more copies, but the duration limit of... 60 rounds? 2e goes to level 30, right? Duration keeps it from getting entirely crazy.

    Being able to make a lower-level copy of the party healer to top off your health is, of course, an obvious means of making the party a bit less likely to just end up dead, as well as recovering the various HP costs this class has. Higher level means more spells being able to be used from longer duration, and of higher level due to more HD.
    Hmm, well the mana drain and life tap spells seem cool, not sure on the pheonix, maybe, but I'll think about a party heal spell, with the blood creature spell, when I said unique I meant the creature couldnt be a specific named creature or a creature thay only one exhists of, so you but 1/4 level would just make a copy of whayever race you were. Also, there kind of already is a life tap spell, called spell boost, so maybe reverse it? Turn spell slots into health?

    Also, for more detail on the whole "unique" thing, look at the polymorph other or polymorph self spells

    Hey, new spell! Also, I messed up when I made my "need more spells" post, I meant 7th, not 8th.

    7th level:

    • Absorption
    o The Sangromancer absorbs the opponent, adding their life force to their own, and killing the opponent. This extra life goes away at the end of this spell, and this health can go over your max health. The opponent makes a saving throw versus spell to resist this spell.
    o Casing time 3 segments
    o Duration 1 rounds/lvl
    o Range 1”/lvl
    o Sacrifice 20 hp to add a target

    Here's a few new spells, credit to Morphic tide:

    4th level:

    • Spell Tap
    o The caster sacrifices spell charges for life, exchanging one spell level worth of life to gain 5 hp. This can only sacrifice one spell.
    o Casting time 3 segments
    o Duration instantaneous
    o Range 0
    o Sacrifice a spell charge of any level to sacrifice another spell
    o Credit: Morphic tide
    • Spell Drain
    o When cast on an enemy caster, you absorb a random spell charge from them, and gain one level worth of spell charge, that after the spell resolves you may use to gain spell charges.
    o Casting time 3 segments
    o Duration instantaneous
    o Range 1”/lvl
    o Sacrifice 8 hp to wipe another random spell and add one spell charge level
    o Credit: Morphic tide

    Morphic, I'm still not sure on the whole phoenix thing, the idea sounds cool, but I'm not quite sure how I would really go about making the logistics of the spell, but I do have an idea. In the mean time, continue making suggestions everyone! We need more 7th, 1st and 2nd level spells!

    I worked out the logistics of the phoenix spell, here it is:

    Level 7:

    • Phoenix
    o You summon a phoenix to serve you until death and then it becomes easier to summon, this creature, when first summoned, has 10 AC, does 1d4 damage, and has 1 health. Whenever the Phoenix deals the killing blow to a creature, the creature compresses into a blood gem with a blood worth equal to the killed creatures hp. When the phoenix dies, it turns into a blood gem equal to the blood sacrificed blood used for it. These blood gem’s hp can only be used to power the phoenix spell, and the phoenix spell can only be powered by these blood gems. This spell cannot be cast if you have a currently living phoenix. If anti-magic or a dispel magic is used to kill the phoenix, it does not drop a blood gem. If the phoenix dies and has an extra life, it will turn into an egg with 1 hp and AC 15 for 1 round, and if during this time it’s killed, it won’t be revived, then hatch back into a phoenix that is twice as powerful as the originally summoned phoenix. Note that the power increase does not increase the value of the blood gem.
    o Casting time 3 turns
    o Duration permanent
    o Range 1”
    o Sacrifice 5 hp from a blood gem to increase hp by 1, sacrifice 10 hp from a blood gem to increase damage by 1d4, sacrifice 8 hp from a blood gem to increase AC by 1, and sacrifice 70 hp from a blood gem to give the phoenix an extra life.

    6th level:

    • Bloody Rebirth
    o If the creature under the effect of this spell would die during the duration of this spell, instead they are alive, unconscious, at -9 hp, and not bleeding. The duration of this spell increases by 1 round every 3 levels of the Sangromancer.
    o Casting time 3 segments
    o Duration 1 round
    o Range 1”/lvl
    o Sacrifice 15 hp to add a target

    This is a bit of an odd spell, I don't think it's very good, it's a little wonky. What are your thoughts?

    Level 7:

    • Bleeding God
    o You summon a bleeding titan to fight for you. This creature can only be summoned outside, and will crush and kill any opponent under 10 hit dice, unless they succeed a bend bars/lift gates strength roll. This titan cannot be killed by normal means.
    o Casting time 5 rounds
    o Duration 1 round per level
    o Range 0
    o Sacrifice down to -9 life to summon a second titan

    Uhh... I was just looking through the spells, and the duration of blood buff is NOT permanent, it is 3 turns/lvl.

    This one's interesting, and powerful in some ways, but has a big caveat.


    7th level:

    • Bloody Ultimatum
    o The caster gains the ability to use other’s blood that has been extracted from other creatures for spells. Any blood that the caster has available within 1”/lvl of the caster will be usable to power the spells of the Sangromancer for one spell. To use this spell, it needs to only be in your memory, then it is lost afterwards. After the casting of the spell, the caster dies.
    o Casting Time special
    o Duration instantaneous
    o Range self
    o Cannot be boosted


    Please give comments on this new spell and suggestions for a possible replacement down side, I was thinking that maybe it just takes the caster to -100 health?

    Here's a couple new Cantrips:

    • Woozy
    o The target gets a little light headed, getting a -2 to hit or even passing out. This can only effect creatures 5 HD or less, and they get a saving throw with a plus 3 versus spell. On a success, -2 to hit, on a fail, unconscious, and on a natural 20, no debuffs.
    o Casting time 3 segments
    o Range 1”/lvl
    o Duration 1 round
    o Sacrifice 3 hp to give them -1 on their saving throw
    • Numbness
    o Target becomes numb for a short period, meaning they can’t feel anything that touches them, or any pain. This effect will allow actions at 0 hp without falling unconscious, but if an unaware creature is effected, they won’t realize that they are numb unless something makes it obvious, like if they get cut and don’t feel it, or are out in the rain and don’t feel cold or wet.
    o Casting time 3 segments
    o Range 1”/lvl
    o Duration 1 round
    o Sacrifice 3 hp to increase numbness duration by 1 round

    Please comment if you think they are to powerful for Cantrips

    Note that due to increased number of 1st level spells, roll 3 d8, not d6, to get spells.

    I wish I knew more about AD&D to help. The flavor is really cool. Hits me right where I want it.

    You really don't need to know ad&d just give an idea that seems properly themed, and let me handle the statistics!
