    Before Michael Roele grounded his bloodline to prevent the Gorgon from
    committing bloodtheft on him, what do you think his bloodline score and
    blood abilities were?

    Anduiras, True, 100 most likely. From the novels, he seems to possess at
    least Divine Aura and Divine Wrath, likely also Courage (takes some to
    attack the Gorgon`s stronghold).

    That and pretty low Int and Wis. ;) Oh, and a very high Cha to get that
    many otherwise sane people to follow you to certain destruction. Note
    that Anduiras`s Improved Ability is not Int. =)

    If i remember correctly there is a passage in the novel where the royal chamberlain states that Roele's troops would never falter in battle even if faced with unsurmountable odds. (Battlewise)

    In another passage the chamberlain also states that Michael had been drinking for several days without eating nor sleeping and that only is divine heritage sustained him. (Ironwill)

    Attention, Arjan. Good idea for a poll.

    Dependant on how you say bloodlines run... probably included Regeneration
    and possibly Major Regeneration... since his sister slept with the Gorgon,
    and upon leaving that encounter, said, "If it were not for the Roele
    bloodline, I would be dead," or something to that effect...

    You are right, i had completly forgotten that passage. I read that novel about 4-5 years ago.
    So we now have:

    Anduiras, True, 100 most likely.

    Battlewise
    Courage
    Divine Aura
    Divine Wrath
    Iron Will
    Regeneration

    hehehe. I am glad that I am not the only one who thought: damn, if this guys had any brains he would be dangerous. Perhaps Michael got Charisma and Strength but had to take a penalty to wits.

    Michael`s big fault was that he did not develop his lands. His economy was
    only enough for a small but elite army. If they guy had spent a few years
    building his domain under the Birthright rules (or a few decades under a
    more conservative system), he could easily have built an army capable of
    defeating the Gorgon. Especially since he had by then made the empre bow to
    his will, and so could have called for vassal soldiery.

    The only reason I can see why Anuire`s economy is in such a shambles is that
    the Gorgon culls not only bloodlines but province levels as well when he
    does his rampages. Either that, or the current province level limits (10 for
    plains) is the result of some major breakthrough in agriculture. Otherwise,
    why is the empirte so underdeveloped?
