5.16 BLOODLINES

Bloodlines are simply a way to trace your familial relationships in
such a way that they are officially recorded by Aetolia (more
specifically, the monks of the Grand Aetolian Library). To join a
bloodline or begin your own, you must either be recorded as the child
of someone or record someone as your child.

In order to record someone as a child, the parent and the child must
go, together, to the Bloodline Registry in the Grand Aetolian Library
and then must use the 'bloodline record' command to officially record
the familial relationship. (Syntax below).

It should go without saying that bloodlines are permanent and irrevocable.  
After all, you cannot change who your biological mother and father are!

Commands:

BLOODLINE RECORD <child> AS CHILD
  - Parent and child must both come to the Bloodline Registry, just southeast
    of the Entrance to the Grand Aetolian Library (see HELP GRAND LIBRARY)
  - Bloodline records are PERMANENT.
  - The child must be at least 13 years younger than the parent, for obvious
    reasons.
  - A child may not be recorded into a bloodline until he or she is 20 years
    old.

BLOODLINE SHOW <person>
  - Shows someone's bloodline, going up to three generations back and three
    generations forward.

Note: in this context, the term "bloodline" refers to the link between
a parent and their biological child. The relationship between a
vampire and his or her sire is a different thing entirely.
