Using The Blood This chapter begins with a range of bloodline feats – feats that are usually taken at 1st level and are only available to certain races.

It stands to reason that almost any two races could be combined to create half-breeds.

The cover of the book is illustrated by James Ryan. Each breed demonstrates a niche that makes you go, Hmmm, what if?

Thats a good idea, thanks for the suggestion: I also have a character that is going to start playing a Wyrd although we decided that the alternate Deimos sounded much better and I am not quite bloorlines how to handle this. Subscribe Replies to my comments All comments.
