Summary::Weapons with the vampiric quality siphon the life energy of creatures they wound in combat. Each time a living creature takes damage from a vampiric weapon, the wielder is healed as detailed below.
|Damage Inflicted||Healing Effect|
|Less than 8 points||None|
Only a handful of melee weapons can become vampiric weapons. The healing effect applies only to attacks against living creatures of the same type as the wielder (subtypes need not be identical). Hit points gained through this use of the weapon cannot be stored (so an unwounded wielder of a vampiric weapon gains no benefits from using it). Striking undead creatures does not cause any negative effects for the wielder.
