    The upcoming Unearthed Arcana is going to have rules for bloodlines. Birthright should just use that.

    That could be anything from the new coming of BR to rules for spell

    acquisition for sorcerors. I wish we knew more. Darn those teases! When

    does that book come out, anyway?



    Let`s see, bloodlines in UA, war rules in Cry Havoc. All we`d need would

    be domain rules and RP type rules.

    From Andy Collins.

    The bloodlines are reminiscent of (and partly inspired by) the Birthright setting, but they're not the same thing.

    I haven`t seen any information on bloodlines in that book. Do you have a

    reference?



    Thanks,

    OK, cool. Interesting. I suspect their going for a more general system of

    portraying a sort of mythic nobility, but that doesn`t mean it won`t

    provide some inspiration for use in the setting that inspired it....



    Thanks,

    Gary

    So in order to play Birthright then, people would have to have Unearthed Arcana, Cry Havoc and all of the Core D&D books?

    For people overseas this could be very expensive and potentially nigh well impossible. Not all of these products are available (based on reports of our overseas brethern) and many have to pay exceptionally high cost in low income areas. Heck it would be expensive for the low income Americans among us, many are students after all - how could be deny them their beer and pizza money .

    Last I heard Cry Havoc was only available as a download and not in print.

    month now.

    Everything in UA will be OGC, so that section could potentially be ripped

    and modified for BR and republished online. Similarly, the war rules from

    Cry Havoc are OGC. They also summarize mostly to "treat a group of X

    soldiers as one figure and use a battlemat pretty much as normal". There

    are a couple of extra tweaks to make it work better, but it`s really

    pretty simple if you already know the 3e D&D rules. You need unit

    statistics, but that`s most of what I`m writing for the chapter 5

    revision. Lots and lots of unit stats, plus a couple more hooks to the BR

    system, such as muster and maintenance costs, for example.

    The SRD is also available online, replacing the need for the core books

    even.

    Been in print a while now, Malhavoc releases things in PDF first and

    follows up a while later with print.

    If you need a very good book for domain actions and such you should look at AEG's Empire:

    http://www.alderac.com/d20/

    I own it and would be happy to type out any "highlights" that people might want.
