Behold... for $1000 and the grand prize...
What CWoD novel did this power first appear in? Wasn't it Domingo who did this? or something?

The Reach of Shadows
Level Four Ritual
With a clear glass vial in hand, the Mystic calls upon his mastery of Obtenebration and focuses it into the blood they have previously stored in the vial. The blood, until now a dark red, turns black as night as the shadows of Obtenebration take up residence. Anyone shattering the vial in their fist, letting the obsidian blood flow over their shredded hand, releases the power contained as if they had used Obtenebration themselves. Alternatively, if the vial is shattered in any other way the power is released in a completely uncontrolled fashion, causing shadows to move of their own accord, tentacles to attack whoever is closest, or a Nocturne to bloom out, casting all within its range into darkness centered on the point of impact.
There is some question as to whether the blood in the vial belongs to the caster or not, since even a Mystic who has ebon blood casting this will end up with dark red blood in the vial after it is prepared (metadata: the blood has left almost all Abyss influence other than the effects of this ritual in the Abyss during the preparation).
System: First the vial must be prepared. The user follows the same method for preparing to cast “Piercing the Murk”. Once they have the sphere formed, the vial is to be held within it for a period of 1 hour. At the beginning of this hour, 1 blood point and 1 willpower point are spent and the user rolls Intelligence + Occult difficulty 7, focusing the essence of the Abyss into the vial. Other than a slight dark tint seen only from the corner of one’s eyes its appearance will be unchanged, but filled with dark red blood. Once the vial is prepared it will be good for one week before it loses its potency and the blood turns to ash.
With the vial in hand the Mystic then uses the Obtenebration power he wants imbued into the blood. All rolls and expenditures are made at this time, and results should be kept track of for each individual vial. Burning another point of willpower at this time, instead of manifesting like usual the power is instead seen as shadows coalescing out of thin air and being drawn into the blood in the vial. Only powers of level 3 or lower can be used in this way.
When anyone crushes the vial in their hand they take one level of unsoakable lethal damage. The blood in the vial mingles with the user’s own blood, incidentally causing a blood bond to the original caster of this ritual if applicable. Then it is as if they had used Obtenebration themselves, with all the results from the original rolls (including potential failures/botches, with the results applied to the one who broke the vial). Shattering the vial unintentionally, throwing it, or otherwise opening it in a way that does not result in the blood mingling with the user’s blood results in an uncontrolled manifestation of the power, as described above, lasting until end of scene or one hour, whichever comes first.
Side Effects: The caster’s blood used this way creates a temporary decrease in the user’s maximum blood pool (-1 for every vial prepped or in use). This cannot be circumvented in any way short of shattering the vial, letting it decay, or otherwise dispelling the essence in the vial. In addition, if the user fails the roll to prepare the vial they lose the blood and willpower to no effect, but a botch results in their own form shattering into a shadowy abyssal fog and being sucked into the vial themselves. In this case breaking the vial results in the vampire being expelled in reverse, down 6 points of blood (or empty), and in immediate frenzy regardless of the amount of blood in their system.

It was from Dark Ages clan novel Brujah, used by Ventrue Countess Saviarre from the Grand Court of paris, probably given to her by Bishop Navarre.

Also, i'm back to the fórum!
