Waxen Poetica are small wax tablets created through thaumaturgy. They can be used as weapons to cause a deeply painful and unpleasant death.
When washed in a point of blood, the user can spend a Willpower point and throw it at a foe. Upon hitting that foe, the wax latches on and begins to spread across its victim's body. Extremely hot, it begins to cause damage once it has covered at least half of the body (usually after three turns). For every succeeding turn it causes an additional die of aggravated damage, which may be soaked normally. Thus by the 10th turn after it has hit someone, the wax causes seven dice of damage. The wax cannot be removed unless the Storyteller botches its damage roll, in which case it stops growing and begins to cool to the point where the character can peel it off. Note that after six turns it completely covers its victim, prohibiting action and smothering mortals.
