Iron Spikes are a block added by Thaumic Bases. It is a passive means to damage mobs that come into contact with it from above. When a mob is killed by Iron Spikes, it will bloody them. This blood can be wiped off with Enchanted Fabric and turn it into Bloody Enchanted Fabric in the process.
Sometimes a thaumaturge just wants to stydy[sic] his researches. Calm, alone and without any zombies at his back. Sure, sometimes a door might just be enough. Sometimes, however, a thaumaturge may want those fools to suffer. It's a shame thaumaturgy does not offer a way of passivly[sic] killing enemies... Or does it? You have managed to create a block, that will damage everyone who steps on it. However it also tears apart items dropped by fools. There might be a way to resolve this problem... A thaumaturge may also notice, that after killing a creature the spikes get covered in blood. To wipe the blood out you need to use your Enchanted Fabric on the spikes. The fabric will get covered in blood, but it can be cleared in a crucible.
