That's just it--this isn't Earth, it's the continent of Cerilia. That
being the case different rules abound. One of those rules is --in order to
rule, (or at least maintain a semblance of ruling for long) you have to
have a bloodline.
It's not just being awe inspiring--it's the BL that gives you license to
rule. Consider driving--you may have every qualification to drive--know
how to use those turning, blinky things, turn the wheel, step on the
gas--but without a license, it's relatively worthless. In the eyes of the
law, you can't drive.
But beyond the appearances, it's also the "tie to the land" part. The fact
that it's "Physio-magical" is what makes BR unique. That's the mystique!
If you didn't need a BL, why not do the same stuff in FR?
