I'm all for systems that fill in the gaps, but this seems to be open for a
lot of abuse. I can forsee Human scions going on a bloodtheft rampage, killing
elf & dwarf woman & children en masse even if it's only one point each, how
many 0-level characters could your PC eliminate.
I actually play it that the elves (except Rhoubhe and friends) were
supporting the Humans against the goblins and Azrai. Any bloodline they
recieved was determined by their location on the field, and not alliegance to
any god. Most blooded elves may see themselves as cursed rather than blessed
by their hereditry gift and may hide it from others.
