This makes short lived races better since it takes them far shorter to get blooded children to adulthod. Since the game usually does not last that long, Karamhul or pure elves will most likely never get blooded relevant LTs.
Sure, you have a harder time recruiting a blooded LT from your family. On the other hand, you don't have to start a new character every 5-10 turns. It balances out.

EDIT: I see I should have read the thread to the end first, since others made this exact point. :oops:

Based upon past history, long lived races do die and without being able to blood your spouse or siblings you end up with either an underage heir with a unblooded regent or an unblooded heir. Either one creating major problems.

Also since games haven't gone that long, you don't really end up with a much higher level character than the humans.

Make your sibbling/nonRelative regent and inherit your bloodline, if you die before kid is adult

I thought your heir had to be blooded to inherit your bloodline?

Your bloodline won't pass to non-blood heirs on its own, but so far as I know, it's always been an option to designated an unblooded commoner (or really, anybody) as your heir. Though, if the commoner doesn't share the values of the god your bloodline is derived from, it (and possibly, the whole realm) might blow up in your deceased face.

Rogr Aglondier was an unblooded peasant, and inherited ilien and a bloodline.

Bloodlines tend to stick around except when blood theft occurs. Emperor Roele grounding his bloodline to deny the Gorgon is the only exception to come to mind.

This is why the investiture is key to successful regents -- that and Bloodline Inheritance spell :)

My understanding is that if it falls to the Land's Choice to decide who the new regent of your realm is, you've 'lost the game', and the new regent will not be yours to control. The Land's Choice is what happens when all else fails... and what 'all else fails' means is that the regent, their heirs, internal factions, usurpers, scavengers, opportunists, and literally everyone else in a position of power fell short of proving themselves worthy to rule the domain or realm.

The land can over ride even a designated heir. It not just the default if all else fails.
