Bloodseeker arrows appear as normal arrows and can vary considerably.
The earliest recorded creation of this type of enchanted arrow was by the Traxxian wizard Kalcurat during the Great War against the Thullian Empire. Over the centuries, Bloodseeker arrows have been created by the dozen by many different wizards in as many different wars. It is one of the more common types of magical arrows and is often found in groups.
Once it has tasted the blood of a creature, the Bloodseeker Arrow will remember the taste of that blood. In order to "armed" the arrow, the tip must be dipped in the blood of the creature (or type of creature) that it is to hunt. Then, when fired again, it will track that particular person or creature in flight. It will hunt relentlessly. It will even turn corners and fly under doors. If it can’t find that person in range, or can’t reach them, it will track any creature of the same race/species. If none are available, it will pursue a close match (reptilian, avian, etc). If no viable targets are available, it will pursue any living target it can find. These arrows only work on living creatures which have blood. A Bloodseeker arrow cannot be reused. It is a one use item.
Range of this arrow depends on the bow and archer, but is typically 400-800 feet.
