    Halflings II

    I have something of a responce to Jonathan's posting on Halflings and
    urge him and others to respond further. The "role" of Halflings in
    Birthright is indeed odd. They seem to have entered Cerlia through the
    "SHADOW REALM" and know of a future danger. In the novel "WAR" it says
    that they did not take part in the battle at Desimar. I have not seen
    this refernce else where. Jonathan, I believe that only BLOODED
    characters can engage in BLOOD THEFT (I could be wrong). There is a
    ritual called INVESTITURE that could allow a Halfling to become BLOODED.
    The entire issue of BLOODED PC's is up to interpetation. BLOOD is a
    link between the Elder Gods, the people, and the land. How are other
    DM's handling these topics? How are other DM's and Players running
    Halflings? How do you see the BLOOD abilites and the source of it's
    power and basis?

    I have a Halfling regent in my campaign, as regent of Roesone. He gained both
    his bloodline and the regency from the former ruler (another character by the
    smae player who was killed by another player). as the former ruler chosen
    successor

    One of the major characters in the book _The_Hag's_Contract is a person
    with a tainted bloodline. He was an everyday Joe until he killed a very
    minor awnsheigh and gained a bloodline. :)
