Bloodletting Leech Jars were introduced at Ebon Gate 2019 at Bloodlet It Go shop by the merchant Deloras. Off the shelf, there is a small, random selection of leeches in the jar from which you can pull one leech per day. Willing merchants can customize the appearance of the jar and leeches, as well as increase the number of leeches that can be pulled per day. The leeches can be placed on oneself or another character and they suck blood from their victim while attached.

Jar

NOTE: Each jar has a random combination of leeches.

Analyze

You analyze your glass jar and sense that the creator has provided the following information:
~Bloodletting Leech Jar~
  This jar holds leeches meant for bloodletting.
  Currently, this jar can only produce 1 leech daily.
  Today, you've pulled 1 leech.
  You will find the following will do something special on this jar:  WEAR, REMOVE, TURN, PULL
  You can use INSPECT to see what types of leeches are available.

~Alterations~
  The 15/15/15 and long description of this jar can be changed freely.  A show is not possible.
  Please keep in mind that the noun can change, but should be something feasible to have a lid and be made of glass (jar, bottle, etc.)
  Special merchants can improve your jar in the following ways:
    * Add more potential leech designs that can be PULLed. (Premade)
    * Add a completely custom leech design that can be PULLed.
    * Increase the amount of leeches able to be PULLed daily to a max of 3.

~Customization~
  * Material Color and Type: transparent glass
    Note: materials can only be glass, crystal or glaes.
    Description of the color should not make it seem completely opaque, as messaging indicates being able to see the liquid inside.
    NOTE: If using glaes, do NOT make it transparent.  It should be colored like stained glass.
  * Lid: lid
    Note: this should be a 'lid' or 'top' of some sort.
  * Wrapping Material: twine
    This is the interwoven netting wrapping/encasing the jar.

You get no sense of whether or not the jar may be further lightened.

Inspect

Wrapped securely in a latticework of twine, this jar looks apt to be worn on a belt.
It looks like this item has been mainly crafted out of glass.
Swirling around in the murky liquid, you can just make out various types of leeches behind the transparent glaes:
*1.*  a squat moss green leech with prominent veining (Current)
2.  a lissome indigo leech with an anguillid appearance
3.  a skinny bright pink leech with a flowery rosette pattern
Type TURN jar TO # to select a specific leech.

Leech

Analyze

You analyze your purple leech and sense that the creator has provided the following information:
~Bloodletting Leech~

  This is a leech that is meant to perform bloodletting on yourself or other players.
  *NOTE* This leech is temporary and will wither after 24 hours outside of its jar.
  To attach it to yourself or other players, POINT the leech at yourself or others.  (Syntax: POINT leech AT <player> OR POINT leech AT Xeraphina)
  Other players will have to APPROVE this action.
  Once attached, the leech will drain blood for a few minutes before detaching and falling to the ground.
  You may REMOVE the leech prematurely, but this will destroy the leech.
  You can also try to PINCH the leech or EAT it, if you even want to try.

You get no sense of whether or not the leech may be further lightened.
