  1. I've always wondered about the latter idea......

    I've always wondered about the latter idea... particularly because of the reasons you stated before that last idea.

    I'm not even sure bloodtheft would be encouraged under any circumstances... too...
  2. Precisely... Plus the fact, lets not forget,...

    Precisely...

    Plus the fact, lets not forget, that the divine essence itself seems to have a will of its own...

    I think that fact usually gets lost in the "flashy-ness" of bloodlines... it's a...
  3. You're correct, the 2e version had a lot of holes...

    You're correct, the 2e version had a lot of holes in its rules, something that the 3e version created here tried to correct.

    I have refined those rules even further.

    Simply put, I've...

    Yes, it's certainly possible...
  5. Yes, the 3e made it merely "the spilling of...

    Yes, the 3e made it merely "the spilling of blood", not, as Osprey confirmed with the 2e rules, that only a pierce to the heart enabled bloodtheft.

    I do like the 3e new form, making the divine...

    I'm sensing you don't use the 3E rules for mass combat? What don't you like about the rules...?

    Where are you getting these? They would seem to be typos...
  8. Correct, except for the number of tighmaeril...

    Correct, except for the number of tighmaeril weapons that the Gorgon is rumored to possess.

    However, I think the 3e creators were attempting to address some inconsistencies in the canon material...

    No - it depends on the nature of the death.

    Usurpation only occurs with a pierce through the heart. Poisoning, for example, does not result in blood-theft, even if it is murder.

    Not sure who...
  10. Yup, that is correct!

    Yup, that is correct!

    I held to those very same conclusions - until recently - when this thread's conundrum popped into my head. Then it got me thinking about my long-held preconceived notions about BR...

    Good point.

    We should also note that most of these areas were heavily influenced by Anuire, so... those names have probably become traditional.

    Perhaps this gives us a clue as to exactly when...

    The scion has self-defeated their own (previous pre-arranged) wishes, if any. It would happen the same as if someone else has killed the scion.



    The heir would gain the bloodline of the...

    Correct.

    As a side note, I think this points to the difference between *regency* and *bloodline* - but that's a different discussion.



    Correct, or dies with them without an heir.

    Well, both, actually. Germanic relations as well as the core canon migration material.

    Completely agree you and Doyle. What you just said actually supports my supposition that the languages of Cerilia have not been static, and have evolved over time.

    Take, for example, the proper...

    Yes, I noticed that some are missing accents above the vowels in Anuirean, as well, and probably a few of the Basarji and Brecht names.

    It seems clear that all of these human languages are a...

    Now we're getting somewhere! :)



    Exactly! That's what I'm aiming to solve with this thread/endeavour? Anyone want to take a stab at it?



    I agree - elvish remains unchanged.

    Correct, I agree that we should use the Welsh translations rules for Anuirean. That's already established.

    That being said, there a lot of non-Welsh names in Anuire. My proposed fix for that is...

    I think it's fair to say, however, that English is the same as Anuirean. I mean, just...

    I agree. However, I'm not sure using Spanish as a base language would be the best fit for the Basarji language, since it's very Romanesque, for lack of a better word. Hence, why I favored Farsi. ...
