These are a feature I would have liked to have seen taken further... I have been thinking about Bloodline and Oath magics and the flassic roundtable knights and ran in to an ability which kind of called for creation of an Affliction to be created on a Defeated (Bloodied/Intimidated Enemy) - I am currently calling it a blood Demand its basically a forced oath that induces a curse if the subject fails to follow it. There is even a ritual to remove an affliction but zero methods that I know of for one to be created. Has anybody done anything more in this arena on there own or am I just missing it.
I have heard people mention using the disease track for long term wounds I guess that is a related thought.
