Tucson Blood and Tears
The Blood Sword of the Red Wolf
A bloodsword once used by The Red Wolf herself in her campaign to hunt down sorcerers. The artifact is cursed, and any who wield it are unable to use sorcery, and cannot prevent any sorcerous effects directed against them. The sword’s power is a curse that is powered by the blood of those it wounds. A victim wounded by the sword will be afflicted by a sorcerous curse with rank equal to the wounds inflicted — up to rank 5. The curse states, “You will not practice sorcery,” and all afflicted by it must spend 5 more style for every single attempt to carry out an action that goes against the curse.
