    I would think each has different blood abilities, that is how I would deal
    with the situation. Unless they were twins, then I might give them the same
    abilities. Otherwise they were born in different year, different phase of the
    moon or whatever so there abilities are completly different from each other.

    Well, contrary to the popular opinion voiced so far; I feel that if two
    people
    come from the same family and bloodline, there are some good odds that
    they will share a few traits that are common to the line. I am not saying
    that they will have identical traits to each other. Just that they will
    likely
    have one or two that are shared.

    This is hinted at in the products I have bought. Blood History, for instance,
    would be of much lower power if it's not shared through the line. To go back
    more than one generation, your father (mother) has to have it, and then the
    grandparent has to have it to go back two generations. Prince Avan's blood-
    mark was written as a mark that is common to most regents of his line. It's
    a common manifestation to the entire family.

    I work this by figureing out a few traits that are common to the family, and
    then
    making space for "family trait" on the blood abilities table (which I have
    reworked anyway); and when that one is rolled; I have the PC reroll on a
    table
    comprised of only the traits that the family share.

    In the same line of thought, how does everyone handle the gems that increase
    bloodlines?? A problem with them is that you can gain abilities with the
    stone,
    and then loose them with the stone. If you regain the stone (or just increase
    your bloodline via bloodtheft), do you regain the same powers or new ones??

    I opted for keeping track and giving back the same powers; as if they are
    preordained
    by the gods, and the gemstones just gave a glimpse of the future. The Crown
    of the
    Empire (when it was intact) is a good example of why I did this. There were
    two
    crowns, each of differing strength (as far as the bloodline boost); I would
    figure that
    each time one of the old emperors put the crown on; he got the same group of
    powers
    back; this makes it much more reliable than if they changed every time....

    opinions...?

    Well.. it looks reasonable when family shares MOST of the abilities
    but some may remain different. For instance it is known thet this
    family of scions have all enhanced sense or perhaps bloodmark or
    battlewise. But there should also be something that makes persons
    more interesting outstanding and individual.

    Thats actually on what I came too last night.. I wondered that craig says
    almost the same here. Thanks anyway.

    So the brothers I was asking about both got enhanced sense.
    And the other ability was (They were both Reynir minor (25))
    varying.

    I think, that you are absolutely right. Whe na person gains the strength
    no matter in WHICH WAY he rolls only once fo the new ability..
    And now whether he loses or gains strength by any way the ability
    will come into existence or lay still until the strength is once
    boosted again..

    Thats what I think , and how I rule it.
