OOC: Biggs will take 2 blood each from his 2nd and 3rd cows. Assuming he knows when to stop without killing them.
Biggs said:"How do i know how much to take?"
Ideally you take only so much as will not significantly harm the creature.
It requires some practice. If you like I will tap you when you have taken a safe amount.
Raghunandan taps Biggs after a relatively short period of time. Biggs finds his beast seems to be sated, allowing him to stop feeding without more than grumbling protests.
Lick the wound, yes, like that. Biggs finds that the wounds opened by his fangs seal shut after he licks them.
Ultimately it requires four more cows before Biggs finds himself satiated. By the third cow he has a rough idea of how much to take; anticipating Raghunandan's vigorous tapping before it begins.
[sblock=OOC -- Feeding with Raghunandan]
Raghunandan stops you after drawing one blood point from each cow.
Mechanically each blood point drawn from the cow inflicts two lethal wounds.
In general I'd say that 2 lethal wounds (through blood lose of course not "damage") is about the largest amount you can take from a normal creature without starting to seriously hurt impair them.
Everyone is able to avail themselves of Raghunandan's assistance. Or roll. Or do whatever seems appropriate.
