Interesting. The life loss is pretty hard on him though. Maybe make it -1 life instead of -2 dice of life? Or it could be +2 dice of damage.

Then again, the way you have blood sacrifice working here harms your Mage in order to get an effect, which sounds more like something a warlock or vampire Mage would do. Why not sacrifice an animal instead? Or make it so that you get certain effects when animals die?

Like the weapons. Think you could make them a bit more shamanic maybe? Right now it looks like he would play more like a primitive barbaric warrior than a primitive barbaric spiritualist.

Really like the poison idea and it would be cool to elaborate on it. There is a lot of potential for natural poison effects and attacks.

For Lizard, i imagine Regeneration. So i would probably lower its chanelling and build in your idea with blood sacrifice combined with Regeneration 2 trait.

Also, Lizard and Poisonous Blowpipe... imagine Crocodile playing on Thrumpet :) but Ceremonial Sickle is nice! :)

This would be super interesting. Not only the idea of where his abilities might go, but in terms of species. I think expanding what sort of people inhabit this world really add more flavor. We have plenty of human based species with only the Orc being the outlying one. (elves=humans with pointy ears, dwarf=short human)

But if this world has basically an Argonian/Iksar sort of populace running around, what other really cool stuff could there be? Maybe some outright Demon mages, other animal anthro species (like mammalian types coming from beastmaster realms), what about a mage that's incorporeal him/herself, like a wraith/spectre. And if we have a Siren coming around that lives in the deep then perhaps there's also a high mountain or sky dwelling people that have wings themselves. When you take a break from human and human offshoots, it really opens up all kinds of wild possibilities.
