1) Clerics only are banned the use of blood letting weapons, Cerelia only has
specialty priests.
2) Perhaps the deities that limit the weapon options to non bladed do so
because they do not consider bloodtheft an option for their priests.
3) As pointed out on this list some months age, bludgeoning weapons can spill
blood and a solid blow to the heart with a mace or hammer should burst the
organ if it does not actually break through enough ribs to pierce the heart
itself. A much messier option, but possible.
