    Land`s Choice and M. Roele

    Hello Group :)


    I have only recently picked up the BOP and found it to be fine work.

    The section describing the land choosing a regent after the original one
    dies really interested me. It's a great veichle and motivator. This got me
    thinking to Michael Roele's dispensation of his bloodline into the ground
    during his last battle with the Gorgon.

    Perhaps if the right kind of person was to revisit that site and brave the
    danger of stoney's lands, they might pick up the "royal" bloodline straight
    from the last descendant.

    I'm curious to what everybody thinks of this as a plot veichle for a higher
    geared campaign in which there is a rat's chance of a PC becoming
    emperor. I am not going to use this idea in my game any time soon
    but I would still enjoy seeing what others think...

    Another good question is what do you people think of the actual
    bloodline of Roele? What abilities did it encompass and exactly what
    value was the strength? 100? 121? 175?

    If we take the good 'ol SH's novels as canon, we know that MR had divine
    wrath; more than likely battlewise; courage; but what others?

    Personally, I wouldn't make it more than 'Ol Rock Butt's score - lets
    see ... say, 140 a good score? Too high? Would anyone give them extra
    blood abilities over and above what is normally allowed by the rules?

    Cheers,
    Darren

    I'd say 100. The Gorgon's got 100+ nowadays but he's taken it from a lot
    of other scions indeed. But assuming the Gorgon started out with Azrai,
    true, 100, I'd say that by the same token Roele started out with Anduiras,
    true, 100.

    Major Resistance - Magic would seem logical as it's the only major
    resistance available to Anduiras' blood derivation and also only available
    to great bloodlines (and thus to true bloodlines as well).
    And that elemental thingy power (I can't recall what it's called and I
    don't have the book with me) would seem nice as well since Anduiras was,
    after all, one of the four 'elemental' gods (air, in this case).

    Only if he had a Bloodtrait which, as far as I can see, he had not.

    Well I don't have the book with me (The novel) but at one time I looked
    through the book listing all the blood abilities he gave Micheal Roele. I seem
    to recall him having 6 or 7 at least, and there all listed in the book, you
    just gotta search through it.

    I remeber a friend of mine who has read the books telling me that he
    has a blood ability that allowed him to remeber the names and faces of
    all of his troops.

    Has anyone on this list made a compilation (or would like to?) If so, I
    wouldn't mind a copy. Thanks.
