Droplets of blood spilled when Io fought Ulban, fell the earth and have sat preserved waiting for you.


Minor Artifact

Property: You can speak and understand Draconic and can read Iokharic for a day after imbibing even a single droplet of the Silent God’s blood.

Property: Your scales permanently darken after you expend the Dying Breath of Io encounter power.

Minor Action. You drink the droplet of the Blood of Io and you may spend a healing surge. Instead of the hit points you would normally regain, you gain 25 temporary hit points, you also gain resist 5 acid, resist 5 cold, resist 5 fire, resist 5 lightning, and resist 5 poison. Lastly, your attacks deal +2d8 radiant damage against targets of the aberration type. All these benefits end if you are ever forced to make a death save or you take an extended rest.

Radiant Vengeance of Io (At-Will * Divine, Healing, Implement, Radiant): Until you take a short or extended rest, you gain an at-will attack power that requires a standard action to use: ranged 10; one creature; Your level + 5 vs. Will; 1d6 radiant damage and the next creature to attack the target regains hit points equal to your Constitution modifier.

Dying Breath of Io (Encounter * Acid, Cold, Divine, Fire, Lightning, Radiant): Until you take an extended rest, you gain an encounter attack power that requires a standard action to use: close blast 5; Your level + 8 vs. Reflex; 4d6 + Constitution modifier damage of a type you choose from among acid, cold, fire, lightning, poison, and radiant. Effect: The target of the Dying Breath gains vulnerable 5 to the type of damage dealt by the breath until you are bloodied or the end of the encounter. Aftereffect: Once you have expended this encounter attack power you suffer vulnerable 5 to all damage and are weakened (save ends both).
