Cold blood is one of the 35 possible corruptions that can be inflicted on the PC. As well as suffering the stat decreases, PCs with cold blood will slow down dramatically when cold and speed up greatly at the cost of taking damage when hot.

Though Drakelings already have cold blood, they can still acquire this corruption; in such case they won't be affected any differently by their environment, but will still get the stat changes.


Drakelings get no benefits at all from the corruption; they may want to remove the corruption to regain speed right away, though compared to some other corruptions it is somewhat tolerable. For other PCs, while the speed penalty is undesirable, the temperature-related effects can be positive as well as negative. See the Drakeling page for details.
