Upon loading the mod into the game world – you will be able to find a spell tome that resembles a ‘Destruction’ tome – it will be stationed in the bookshelf where you find Valerica’s Journal.
This will teach you a Lesser Power: Blood – Create BloodCursed Arrows.
You can use this as many times as you want – it will have the following effects.
1. Your character will be animated to kneel down, slice open his hand and then bleed on the ground
(Thanks to Brehanin2 – His Better Vampires mod showed me how to do that specific animation)
2. Your character will then lose either 10, 5 or 1 Elven Arrows – depending on which is the higher denomination present.
You will then gain an equal value of Bloodcursed Arrows.
Eg: If you have 0 Elven Arrows in your inventory – nothing will happen.
If you have >= 10 Elven Arrows in your inventory – you will lose 10 and gain 10.
>= 5 Elven Arrows in your inventory – you will lose 5 and gain 5.
>= 1 – you will lose 1 and gain 1
The animation and effect takes about 10 seconds to complete- so it makes sense to do 10 at a time.
I purposely capped it at 10 per use to maintain immersiveness – I didn’t think it would make sense a little puddle of blood could equate to 60-100 arrows in a single dose. I mean – the blood is potent, but not that potent.
Inventory of the Mod:
1 ESP file (contains the Spell and Spell Effect to trigger the animations, also contains the spell tome and places it in Valerica’s Lab)
1 Script File (with source) – to perform the conversion from Elven to Bloodcursed.
The source of the script is included for anyone to look at and duplicate etc
Most of the animation / hand-slicing etc came from Brehanin2 – who also released the source with his Better Vampires mod etc.
