    D&D 3.5 PHB2 Affiliations could be cool for BR

    Someone on rpg.net pointed out that the new "affiliations" rules from the D&D 3.5 PHB2 would be very cool in Birthright.

    I don't have a lot of good examples of Birthright domains and holdings, but given an example or two, I think it would be clear that the "affiliations" rules could be used to deepen the play.

    I heartily agree, and will work on that in my next game. I hope to build
    on half of my last group, with one PC definitely in a group, and another
    perhaps earning his way into another.

    The Black Arrows of Jankaping are an elite military unit in Jankaping (there is a warcard for them), and the party has encountered them, so I tracked them as an organization. Using the organization affiliation rules, if they continue to have favorable encounters, the Black Arrows will generally regard the party as friendly.

    Generally any domain, special warcard unit, or even noble houses could be treated as organizations. Generally, I like to have cleavage in a domain, so I split domains on various issues, so sometimes the party has an affiliation with a whole domain, and sometimes its only a faction in a domain.

    That's where I would start. Domains, parts of domains (the Avanil war party, the Avanil peace party), and special organizations.

    Some cool affiliations might be the Knights of Haelyn, or some cool Blooded wizards guild. I've made a secret society of assassins in my Birthright game called the Hidden using the new Affiliation rules.

    This PHB2 groups are IMO boring. Not really good stuff for a Birthright campaign.
    my purpose is now to lead you into the Pallace where you shall have a clear and delightful view of all those various objects, and scattered excellencies, that lye up and down upon the face of creation, which are only seen by those that go down into the Seas, and by no other....
