Sweet Afterlife

Nightblade is able to summon an illusion of the bliss waiting for the target in the afterlife. The illusion is so intense that the target can be briefly frozen in place unless attacked. This illusion may very well become addictive and cause the target to eventually give up living and let themselves be killed so they can experience (as they believe) the bliss for real.

Power From Afterlife

Each time nightblade deals finishing blow she can withdraw some of the energy released by the spell and temporarily store it as kind of a shield than increases her resistance to the type of damage used by the spell. Controlling her finishing blows this way requires more concentration. Nightblade needs to pay extra 10% mana for her spells in order to excercise this control.

Afterlife Gift

When nightblade deals a finishing blow she can divert part of the power of the finishing blow that gets over the limit required to actually kill the target. In doing so she can create kind of armor for her own hitpoints. This armor kicks in in the moment when nightblade is about to die. The armor absorbs the part of the blow that would push nightblade over the brink of death. Each additional finisihng blow adds more power to the armor but the stronger the armor is the more difficult it is to add more hitpoints to it.

The illusion is normally only a brief flash but its effects persist on subconscious level for noticeable time. As long as the victim subconsciously feels this illusion, they do not want to use their resistances to the full effect.
