Crude Tattoo, Weregild

Aura faint necromancy; CL 3rd; Slot –; Price 600 gp (pair); Weight


This tattoo depicts a simple chain, crafted from golden links.


Weregild crude tattoos are crafted in pairs and linked together at the time of their creation. They form a bond between bearers of the twin tattoos, which only takes effect upon one of their deaths. When a bearer dies, the tattoo siphons some of the bearer’s life force, passing it through the bond to the twinned bearer, infusing them with energy and granting them 10 temporary hit points and a +2 insight bonus to damage and attack rolls. This infusion only lasts for one minute, after which the bearer becomes exhausted.

After the death of one of the bearers, a weregild crude tattoo can be linked to another creature bearing another unlinked weregild crude tattoo through an hour-long procedure requiring 100 gp worth of ink.
