    Makes sense!

    Makes sense!
  2. And, to add to that, remember that bloodlines...

    And, to add to that, remember that bloodlines aren't just magic powers.

    They represent blood-lines - they represent a dynasty. You belong to the AVAN bloodline, to the BOERUINE bloodline... etc.,...
  3. That would be true in the real world, of...

    That would be true in the real world, of course... and more or less true in the Birthright world as well.

    Most temples end up some form of neutral because that alignment bent appeals to the most...
  4. I get a different take from the cultures of...

    I get a different take from the cultures of Cerilia, and the whole idea of bloodlines.

    Haelyn is the god of nobles. of order, and of righteousness. He would want you to always keep in your heart...
  5. Yes, to both ideas. This is a fight for...

    Yes, to both ideas.

    This is a fight for survival - and not, as most people would likely presume, between mortals...

    That's what the data in the canon seems to indicate...
  6. What do you mean by this? 3e still has areas,...

    What do you mean by this? 3e still has areas, etc... I don't see these changes...
  7. I would think that bloodtheft would be one of...

    I would think that bloodtheft would be one of those things that are considered taboo - like regular theft, but more personal.

    It would be akin to being considered as stealing someone's soul.

    As...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  12. 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...
  13. I'm sensing you don't use the 3E rules for mass...

    I'm sensing you don't use the 3E rules for mass combat? What don't you like about the rules...?
  14. Where are you getting these? They would seem to...

    Where are you getting these? They would seem to be typos...
  15. 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...
  16. No - it depends on the nature of the death. ...

    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...
  17. Yup, that is correct!

    Yup, that is correct!

    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.

    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.
