    (Minimum 35% for a Cerilian Dragon- that┬┤s something good. Considering
    there weren┬┤t that many dragons at Deismar it┬┤s possible they all got lucky
    and "rolled" less than35 %)

    I┬┤m not sure either. It┬┤s up to each DM to decide. In my campaign there are
    blooded dragons. It was just a hipotesis(sp).

    > Dwarves have MR, but they also have bloodlines.

    Well, it┬┤s not exactly MR, at least not the MR I meant. Dwarves have saving
    throws bonus- which to some extent is magic resistance but is still very
    different from the inate ability to make magic not work on you because you
    are a part of it( i think this is the explanation the DMG gives).

    sounds good to me
    presumably that's why the roeles had such a high bloodstrength; the
    prevailing wind was in his direction so he really got drenched with the
    stuff. i wonder what colour it was?

    Yes, yes, yes!! This is precisely the point I was making in my earlier post
    on Dragons and sources. IMC Dragons are creatures of Cerilia, more so than
    the other "lesser" races, responsible for holding power over ancient realms of
    magic (source holdings) in the past and creating the ancient ley lines, a few
    of which still exist in today's Cerilia. Extremely powerful dragons, IMC, may
    have even been responsible for the independent "pools" of source mebhail that
    are occasionally found.

    I always considered that the bloodline strength and dispersion of the divine
    blood was divine energy, not real blood. When the gods were destroyed,
    their energies were released into the individuals who were around,
    especially the champions which were probably in close proximity to the gods
    themselves. It is the divine energy passed down through the bloodlines, not
    physical blood of the gods themselves.

    I think the idea that dragons can cast realm spells is interesting. It
    was my impression that both the Dragons and Giants of Cerilia were much
    more closely tied to the elements then in most settings.

    It would put them in a class unto themselves in power and every GM
    would have to consider the ramification before impliminting it. I will
    say that having grown up on Tolkiean Dragons I always found the fantasy
    dragons a bit weak in comparison.

    we would like to apologise unreservedly for making a joke that was clearly
    far too subtle.

    this administration will make a pledge to stick to knob gags in the
    future, which may be enjoyed by all.
