    I'm wondering if a person can have more then One Bloodline or if they are restricted to one but can have it evolve in some ways?
    Wonder how his Body and existing Bloodline would react if gained a Life Magic Based Bloodline along with his existing Death Magic Bloodline?
    Can different Bloodlines Merge, or would they stay separate, or could they do both and in effect give that person three Bloodlines? Might possibly be all of them but depending on what Bloodlines a person gets?

    I'd quite like to see Richter gain some type of Psionic Bloodline, might open him up to gaining Psionic Abilities and deepen his Bond with Alma. As would gaining a Draconian if Bloodline.

    Maybe he can figure out away to add Alma's Species as a type of Bloodline to himself?

    I think one bloodline would make the most sense, definitely with an ability to evolve or replace.

    @Dragon like the tier system? They both have ranks then eventually there would be a way to progress to the next 'tier' of the bloodline.

    That sounds about right.

    Would think that not only can Bloodlines be improved/strengthened and Evolved but that additional Bloodlines could be gained, although the chances of this happening would be pretty slim normally, and could be effected by what Bloodline you Already have, either making gaining some more likely or less likely to different degrees.

    Richtær has a big enough head, he should already have that psionic human type.

    As for multiple bloodlines, I would like to see another for his next Ascension. It seemed like that was going to be the case the way I read it.

    Two thoughts have suddenly occurred to me while I was writing another post. They are can Richter use is Vile Harvesting power on Humanoids like Orcs, Elfs, BugBears, Kobolds, Humans, ect.
    And does his Vile Bloodline give him Resistance to the Harmful effects of touching Necronium? Either in his full Human normal form or when he has it Activated?
    For that matter would Undead/LivingDead react to him differently in his Vile mode?

      I hope so. Cough up...melt away from, the good stuff!
    2. And does his Vile Bloodline give him Resistance to the Harmful effects of touching Necronium? Either in his full Human normal form or when he has it Activated?
      Put me down for no.
    3. For that matter would Undead/LivingDead react to him differently in his Vile mode?
      Put me down for yes. Great camo

    Does anyone else think that the material he creates from using his bloodline is a bit OP?

    It makes sense that he would want a way to create loot from dead bodies themselves but the stuff Richter creates from dead bodies with nearly no tools and low level crafting boggles the mind

    It is. He could have left out the bloodline stuff all together, and it would have probably made for a more interesting book.

    Not really, it was mentioned that there were several other methods/Abilities/Skills that allow people to get Loot Drops from slain monsters. And that he can only really create the Items and Weapons from the Drops due to his Crafting and Enchanting Skills.

    It's too bad he can't level zootomy (not that he has it, even after performing an "autopsy" of the Rock Giant) with the bloodline ability.

    Blood line is also supposed to have an effect on intuition. I'm assuming that he rolled a natural 20 for intuition when he almost walked away from the dead slime.

    Besides getting more Bloodline points and efficiency of Harvest, how do you think his bloodline will change once Richter upgrades it?
    Instant zombie raising?
    Dead/undead/living dead possession?
    Immunity to death magic?
    Death magic absorption?
    Undead version of tame?
    Bring the dead/undead/living dead back to life?

    Welcome! Im glad you found the site. You are now an exile.

    So he gets a bonus to natural armour (usually earth magic), concealment (usually dark magic), and Super Harvest. Is there a theme? I don't really see one, so it's hard to extrapolate what else it could do. But none of them seem much related to death or death magic. It will probably be either interal or external.

    If internal, Natural Attack.
    If External, Upgrade to harvest.

    Well I suspect that he will get a boost to Harvest and an improvement in his Death Magic Resistance/Strength and probably an increase in his sensitivity to the feel of Death Mana and he might also get a reduced aggro with Undead and Living Dead. Possibly poisonous, or paralytic or Life draining physical attack.
    Don't know what else really.Also

    I would think that Zootomy might well have some boosting effect on his Harvest Ability.

    He could get an increase in bloodline points or faster regen too.

    I would much prefer a passive boon like reduced stamina use of the undead. It fits with the theme and would be great given his new expertise attacks and cloud running skill. It also mirrors his 30% reduction in mana usage from water mastery. Finally, it helps Richter deal with the fact that his leveling and stat point production is going to slow down considerably.

    I wonder if his Harvest Ability works different on Undead, Living Dead and Death creatures and Beasts? Would be get more larger, rarer and better things, maybe with a higher success rate?
    Would Harvesting Undead be are way to improve his Bloodline?I
    Does Hisako have a Bloodline (assuming she's Tier 2+)?

    And I really want to know how many Bloodlines a person can have!

    2! One from the mother (of the two she's has, the one from her mother's side) and one from the father (of the two he has, the one from the father).
