A specially-treated wooden torch that produces a red light over a large area. Sanguophages gather around torches like these during their ceremonial meetings. The sanguine glow is particularly pleasing to individuals with the bloodfeeder gene. It can be automatically refueled with wood, and produces a small amount of heat

Blood torches are created during the Bloodthirsty Parley quest type - note that the name of each quest in game varies. During this quest a location on your map will be chosen, a blood torch placed at that spot, and three sanguophages will meet. Once placed, the torch will be left behind, regardless of the outcome of the quest. After this point, it can be refueled, uninstalled and reinstalled as any other building.
A blood torch outputs light in a 10 tile radius, with the nearest 7.884 tiles being above 50% light level and considered lit. It heats the room to a maximum temperature of 23 °C (73.4 °F) at a rate of 3.5 heat per second.
The blood torch consumes 1.5 wood per day as long as it is lit. If lit while unroofed under the rain, it consumes an additional 0.0006 wood per 1 tick (0.02 secs), or a total of 38 wood per day. It can hold up to 20 wood at a time, for a maximum run time of 13.33 days, or 12.8 hours if in constant rain. It is constructed with a full fuel capacity. Fuel is delivered to the torch by a haulers as long as refueling is enabled.
It cannot be "turned off" or paused, only deconstructed, in which case no wood is recovered, regardless of any "fuel" remaining.
