I think I saw this covered in the rules, but I'm not sure. If I remember
correctly (and this is how I've always run it): if you Invest a Bloodline
that's higher than your own, that becomes your new BL (I.E. in your 1st
example, Scion A would become Anduiras, major, 30.) If you Invest a lower
BL, your Derivation et al stays the same, and you get +1 BL point (only).
So, in your 2nd example, Scion C would become Anduiras, major, 26. They are
*certainly* not added together.
> In the mean time, what do you think of these situations:
> * Scion A, Basaia minor 20, is invested by scion B, Anduiras major 30.
> What happens to scion A's bloodline? Is it: Basaia, minor, 22? Basaia,
> minor, 30? Basaia, major, 30? Anduiras, major, 30? Anduiras, minor, 40?
> Anduiras, major, 40? Basais, major, 50? Anduiras, major, 50?
> * Scion C, Anduiras, major, 25, is invested by Scion D, Anduiras,
> minor, 15? Is scion C's bloodline now: Anduiras, major, 26? Anduiras,
> 33? Anduiras, major, 40?
