(3-5 Points)

The touch of Cold Iron is anathema to both you and your magic, or both. This may be due to some faerie heritage or the like (and is most common among Verbena with the Merit: Fae Blood).

3 Points
The touch of cold iron either provides three dice of countermagic against your spells or inflicts a health level of bashing damage per turn it's in contact with you.
4 Points
Either both effects of the 3-point tier, or inflicts lethal damage instead.
5 Points
Cold iron provides both three dice of countermagic and inflicts one level of lethal damage per round.
