|#1zombiegleemaxFeb 23, 2004 20:01:24||Recently I have become interested in the idea of adapting some of the Birthright concepts into my own game - foremostly the bloodline rules. |
Before I begin my question please understand that my knowledge of the Birthright campain is extremely limited - in fact I have never even used the campain.
So here is my questions -
What powers/abilities/rewards do you recieve as your bloodline increases?
Do you have to hunt down other creatures with a bloodline and stab them in the heart to get more bloodpoints?
When you kill a creature with a bloodine score do you gain their score and add it to your own? Would this system work if I adapted it to a 'soulstrength' score instead?
Do creatures with a bloodline 'feel' the presence/power level of others with the blood?
Any information on the topic would be useful so would stories of characters who have the bloodline ability.
Thanks for your help.

1) That depends on the power. There are varying 'stengths' of bloodlines, with corresponding 'stengths' of powers to access. Think of it as a feat tree: You pick Dodge and you get access to several other feats that have that as a prerequisite. That's how I would play bloodlines.
2) That is one way, but the most common way would be to rule your realm in alignment with your bloodline's "traits" and the attitude of the subjects of your realm.
3) No. You gain one point if your bloodline score is greater than the creature you killed, 2 points if weaker. If you kill a scion with special tighmaevral weapon, then you get 1 point for every 5 points of bloodline power you are stealing.

Go to the downloads page and get brcs-playtest.pdf or brcs-playtest.zip (both are about 4 MB). There are other conversions available, but that one is the most recent (AFAIK) and the most comprehensive.|
Edit: Another option is to download Blood_Ability_Points.zip from the same site. It's a *much* smaller file and it only covers bloodline abilities, so it may be more what you're looking for.

the first one is a zip word doc.
the second one is a pdf file
These should help.
