Campaign Design - Spells: Bloodblade

Bloodblade (from Spells & Spellcraft)
Conjuration (Creation)

Level: Cleric/Favored Soul 3
Components: V, S, M, DF
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Touch
Target, Effect, or Area: One blade of blood
Duration: 1 minute per caster level (D)
Saving Throw: Fortitude partial
Spell Resistance: Yes

This spell causes a blade of flowing, crimson blood to spring forth from the caster's hand. The bloodblade has the same statistics as a scimitar, and the caster can wield it with no penalties due to non-proficiency. A hit from the bloodblade deals 1d6 points of damage +1 for every two caster levels (maximum of +5). A creature hit by the bloodblade must make a Fortitude save or start to bleed.Bleeding inflicts 1d4 points of damage per round, starting the round after the wound is scored. Each round after the bleeding starts, the victim may attempt another Fortitude save to stop the blood loss. Successive hits from a bloodblade do not cause additional bleeding if the victim is already suffering from this effect. Creatures that are immune to critical hits are immune to the additional bleeding damage of the bloodblade.

Material component: Some of your own blood, drawn from a fresh wound inflicted during the casting. This inflicts 1d4 points of damage to you.
