The Bloodtooth Bracer was released at Duskruin Arena in The Bloodbenders in February 2021 by GameMaster Kenstrom. The Bloodtooth Bracer has teeth that sink into the user’s flesh. All abilities and magic use blood from the wearer to be activated. The bracer has a health regeneration passive ability. Certificates are available for all upgrades. Each tier has a few zest verbs and a special ability. Each ability has a cooldown period that ranges per ability. Each ability costs health points.

Analyze

You analyze your red-veined bracer and sense that the creator has provided the following information:
The red-veined bracer is a type of arm-worn armor accessory that magically drains some of your blood in exchange for a series of temporary benefits. The base description can be altered, but should always remain singular and match the unchangeable look description.

The bracer is tier 4 of 4. This means that it has access to the following verbs: WEAR, REMOVE, POINT (Blood Blast), POKE, TOUCH, PUSH (Blood Bend), PROD, RUB, FOLD (Blood Bane), CLENCH, TAP, FIDGET (Blood Barrier), EXHALE (Blood Bath). The bracer also provides an enhancement to HP regeneration equal to 3 * its current tier.

You might be able to have a talented merchant lighten the red-veined bracer for you.

The bracer has 4 levels of tiers, each with unique verbs and abilities. The abilities of the bracer will be activated by personal blood sacrifice (hit points drained from its bearer).

Tier 1 (Off-the-Shelf)

Additional Information

Release Story

The red fire burned brightly.

The sanguine flames cast flickering shadows along the earthen walls. They were deep enough to avoid the sting of the sandstorm, but close enough to the surface to still hear whispers of the howling winds beyond. One man, young in face and with eyes the color of the blue sea, sat huddled in the corner, pulling at sinewy ribbons of flesh as if trying to untangle a bundle of thin ropes. His fingers were covered in blood as he worked the strings of flesh, kneading them and spreading them like a baker preparing his dough. Beside his feet sat a small stool, its wood stained and its surface cluttered with notched metal plates.

Another man, with the same young face and eyes of the sea stepped into view, the scarlet fires bathing half of his form in an eerie crimson glow. He smiled at his brother, not of the womb, but of magic, of power, of creation, and in many ways, of blood. Sweat soaked his face and darkened his shirt. His grin was wide as he pulled a cloth away from his hand to reveal an enruned red-veined bracer. It resembled more flesh than metal, comprised of a macabre blend of incarnadine muscles, patches of membranous skin, and small metal plates woven together with murky red veins.

"Were we successful?" The first man asked.

The second man’s grin widened, if that was even possible, and he nodded. "We were."

He handed the bracer to the first man who had by then slowly rose to his feet. He placed the red-veined bracer on his arm and suddenly rows of razor-sharp teeth jutted out from the membranous layer and sunk deep into the man’s flesh! He winced in pain, but gritted his teeth through it all. His veins began to throb and glow with a red hue. Whorls of blood mist seeped up from his very skin and swirled about his hand for several moments before he outstretched his hand and a spiraling blast of sanguine blood sprayed forth from his palm and struck a nearby wall where it began to boil and hiss.

Both men looked to each other, faces and eyes like a mirror of the other. They both grinned.

"We were successful indeed...and this is only the beginning..."
