That's true. He's still the regent of the land anyway. I mean, if recent
awshengliens still have their former kindoms, why not a polimorfed regent? =)

Actually, the way I manage that is that If you're raised, you're a
commoner (I mean, the conection between land, gods and the character has
been sewered and another one took it).
but, as always, the DM has the final word... =)

In my game last night one of the regent characters was turned to stone, the party will turn him back to flesh next session.
My question is: does he loose his regency? Does his domain pass to his heir?
This has bought up other questions: If polymorphed what happens?
If the mind is affected (with forget) for example?
I assume that is a regent dies and is raised that his domain would pass but his
Bloodline would remain intact. Am I correct?
If Bloodtheft is performed on a character and that character is raised
does how is his Bloodline affected?

Good question. My initial gut reaction is that the body and soul are still
together, and so the connection between the "blood" and the regency of the
land is still intact, and thus he retains the rulership of the land (but
it becomes very difficult to do realm actions. This is an interesting way
to throw other lands into chaos, preventing them from taking any domain

The body (and its "blood") is fine, so the regency remains with the victim
of the forget spell.

There are two ways to think about this. Some DM's play that not only the
regency passes to the heir, but that also the regent's bloodline get
passed on. This is to cover for an interesting side effect of the ability
of regents to spend RP to increase their bloodlines. Since offspring get a
bloodline determined by the strength of their parent's bloodlines, if the
parents keeps raising their bloodline as they are having kids, the marked
heir (i.e. the eldest son, usually, or the eldest child) actually has the
LOWEST bloodline of all of his siblings. Strange. Thus we correct that by
assuming that when the heir inherits, he automatically gets his bloodline
bumped up to that of the former regent, as part of that Ceremony of
Investiture. Thus, this way, when the old regent is raised, he is still
technically blooded, but has a bloodline strength of zero. The other way
is that you described, in which case he retains his bloodline strength,
but the regency of the domain passes on to the heir.

As above, the character is raised as technically blooded, but with a
bloodline score of zero.
