    That could work. It`s something of a standard in 3e to extend the use of

    existing skills rather than come up with new ones, so most folks would

    probably prefer to handle it that way. Personally, I`m loathe to extend

    the use of existing skills to cover new tasks, particularly into such a

    broad area as bloodline. I`d rather tweak the skill list than tweak an

    individual skill. In this case, I don`t really get a Sense Motive or Bluff

    kind of vibe off of the ability to track a blooded character, or discern

    information about his/er bloodline, so an entirely different skill (or a

    class ability that functioned like one) is my preference. Besides, there

    were a couple of other skills that I wrote up having to do with bloodline

    that I rather liked, so I`d keep it a skill as part of an overall D20

    version of things....

    If you want to use an existing skill and a feat rather than have a new

    skill you might use Spellcraft since that`s the skill Detect Magic uses,

    and that has a more direct connection to the magical/divine energy of

    bloodline that does either Bluff or Sense Motive.

    How about a feat thet would alow you to use difrent skills for difrent tasks.

    and combonation of thees in order to be sucsesfull.

    like

    youll need a rank in 'know blood' in order to do a 'gather info'

    then you migth need 'know blood' and some 'know Nobility' in orderto do your 'sense motive' to figure out whether a blooded person in trying to hide thet he is blooded when chatting.

    ---

    a feat alowing you to gain a lot of sinergy bonuses from all sorts of combonations to have a better chance in sucseading in finding the blooded one. And even gaining you an extra +2 bonus on one of the skills.
