    Default Effects of drinking blood from Perils of the Warp: DtD40k7e

    First: this is for a Dungeons the Dragoning game. Pretty much anything from D&D, Whitewolf, Exalted, and the Warhammer franchises is potentially on the table.

    Second: set the scene. A halfling mafia underground factory that produces counterfit luxury brand magitech fake breasts using slave labor. It has sufered a mild orbital bombardment that collapsed most of yhe entrances and damaged the nuclear power plant. The slaves have rioted and the murder-bots have gone beserk.

    What's happening is the "hero"s are fighting the bots on the factory floor. There are mulched slave corpses from the treads of the bots, a leaking liquid nitrogen tank, and a large pool of shampoo. More importantly a perils roll resulted in a minute of raining blood. The gnome vampire wants to dive into a pool of this blood that collected in a silicone gel tank pit and slurp it up.

    Does drinking random blood summoned from a warp effect sound like a good idea? Also, side effects?

    If you've nothing to say, say it any way you like. Stylistic innovations, contorted story lines or none, exotic or genderless pronouns, internal inconsistencies, the recipe for preparing your lover as a cannibal banquet: feel free. If what you have to say is important and/or difficult to follow, use the simplest language possible. If the reader doesn't get it then, let it not be your fault.

    Personally, I would have him mark any Vitae gained this way differently. And when he spends them, he automatically has to roll on Phychic Phenomena table. If whatever he spent the point to do would already have that roll, then roll twice and take the higher.

    Thats... really good.

    I wonder if I can get him to write on his character sheet in sparkley plnk crayon. Sparkley pink sounds like a good Chaos color.

    This sounds like an excellent goal for a personal mini-game. Let us know what it takes in-game to make that happen!

    Well it wasn't sparkly but it was pink. Mechanical pencil instead of crayon. But that means I can use it again.

    There was a decently epic fight between Chundarr the Boobarian (four falsies on the chest, one on each leg, one on each shoulder, and four bright red ones as a mohawk) the ork paragon cyber-monk and three PCs. Crushed legs, broken ribs, beating people with zombies, melted face, etc., etc.

    Then they went back to the ship and checked into the med-bay. The pink blood points got used to cast hit point healing spells (crits have to heal naturally). Some mook crew members went insane, there was a short gravity flip, some psychic trauma over needles, and all the saline and liquid drugs got turned into more warp blood.

    Ironically at one point they considered ordering an orbital strike on their position since they could burn hero points to survive. Then they seemed to forget that the NPC exalts also get hero points. While Chundarr's face was melted off with an energy ball spell they didn't confirm the kill.

    I get to use the NPC again.

    Edit: Also the vampire's fangs are now four inches long and causing a speech impediment.

    Sounds like a good time was had by all. And returning NPCs are so rare, but so much fun.
