Blood Demand: This Gift allows one to create a single service involuntary oath. It is a compulsion to do something with actual negative repercussions if you don't follow the demand, these may in fact be as extreme as the intimidation which initiates them. An intimidation vs a bloodied enemy may result in an infliction as extreme as eventual death if you fail to follow the oath. It isn't always totally obvious that an oath has taken. This is a power often attributed to Paladins such as Lancelot. A common example of the task being "Travel to Camelot and peacefully offer yourself up for penance to the king and his mercy" - with a tacit you will sicken and die? if you dont .

A Blood Demand creates an affliction and is always performed as an heroic exertion (ie costs a surge) and requires a bloodied enemy and a successful use of intimidation.

So how should I level or cost this puppy?... smh

Branching out in to afflictions and things not really developed in 4e.

One suspects Lugh Long-hand Samildánach (a wright/carpenter, a sailor, a smith/bronze craftsman, a healer, a champion, a harpist, a poet/historian, a sorcerer, cupbearer) would agree.

In some sense this is trading that healing surge to increase the duration of the intimidate
