Has anyone compiled a list of all the 5th Ed canon Mythic Bloodlines so far revealed?
Many of the Founders apparently left children, as did some other notable Magi (I belive therer is a canon descendant of Apromar in one book). Dragons have apparently interbred occasionally.
What other great magicians have left bloodlines out there? Merlin? Simon Magus? Medea? Ochus Bochus? Merovech? Appolonius of Tyana? The Magi of 3 Kings fame?
I am looking for a resource that shows bloodline, suggested area that the Minor Magical Focus is in, the typical inherent powers, inherited Major Hermetic Flaw, and (importantly) the typical ancestral minor personality Flaw.
Take for instance the Merovingian dynasty of the Salian Franks which was supposedly ruled by Sorceror Kings. They obviously left blood descendants in order to have a dynasty. And as far as I know there is nothing in the canon 5th Ed books specifying this Mythic Blood.
I could say Merovech had a focus in personal physical enhancements to make him a better fighter (supposedly Merovech always won fights), and his inherent power could be similar to Aura of Rightful Authority (he was King). The Major Hermetic Flaw is "must have long hair", since the Merovingians were known as the long-haired kings, and there has been suggestion they can trace their descent from Royal House of Israel (thinking Samson's weakness here). But what personality flaw would he have - Avarice because he was a conqueror, Dutiful maybe because he personified feudal authority and responsibility, something else?
House Bjornaer has numerous Mythic Blood Lines though, serf's parma, I don't have all the details here. Some of the notable ones are:
Birna the Founder
Line of the Bear
Focus: Beasts of Legend
Power: Form of (Temperment) Heartbeast
Line of the Wolf of Virtue
Power: paralyse a man at R: Eye
Line of the Owl of Virtue
Power: Shroud of Stifled Sound
Power: Panic of the Elephant's Mouse (I think)
Power: Sheath of Flame at R: Touch
Flaw: ??? I forget.
Also, I believe that all the Founders who had children have Mythic Bloodlines. Mercere, for example and this gives rise to Mythic Companions as often as magic with Mythic blood. I think Jerbiton the Founder also had a kid or two.
That's it for Canon exemplars of which I am aware.
Unless.... didn't Flambeau have a kid? Or am I making that up?
Apologies for that.
I posted the article after a very long discussion about making an Ex Miscellanea mage with Mythic Blood, and somehow I didn't get all the Ex Misc package out of my thought before asking about Mythic Blood.
OK, I have found my copy of HoHTL, and find on p143
Mythic Blood (Zmey) - dragon native to Transylvania Tribunal.
Power: Invisibility, Fly on Winds, or turn into a dog or bear
Flaw: Lecherous, Meddler or Proud
Ganedia?!? First I have heard of her. Thanks for pointing me at the name.
I finally got around to checking the Lion and the Lily.
"The early Merovingian Kings were sorcerers whose magical powers were said to be vested in their long hair, which they never cut. As a consequence of their ancestry, most of the descendants of Merovech have a Supernatural virtue. This is most commonly the Major Supernatural Virtue Greater Imunity: Drowning, and quite often goes undetected."
Gof:Rhine Tribunal on p59 is an example magus Phillipus Niger of House Flambeau.
He is of the Mythic Blood of Apromar - the destructive apprentice of Flambeau.
Power: Sniff out the witch (smell version of Sense the Lingering Magics)
Mythic blood of Rostam is p157 of Cradle & Crescent. Magical Focus - Damaging Supernatural Creatures, Personality flaw Reckless, power is ggrant yourself a +3 bonus to one type of physical action that is a speciality of Athletics, Ride or Swin. Each time the power is used, a different physical action can be selected, the bonus lasts for two minutes. The power can't be used again until it the previous bonus's duration has expired. The power is given as ReCo base 10, +1 diameter, +2 flexibility.
TC&tC also goes through creating characters with different types of jinn-blood - so it gives specific examples of Faerie blood, but for the Magic Realm it suggests using Mythic Blood without going into much detail.
The table for Bjornaer is on p37 of HoH:MC, listing Birna, Wolf of Virtue, Owl of Virtue, Grififin and Phoenix.
I am of the opinion that it would be rather convenient to have a list of all the Mythic Bloodlines in one place.
Should I continue adding them to this thread, or should I add it to redcap.org/page/Mythic_Blood or a sub-page of the wiki?
Nymph of Artemis (p.15), just grants Minor Magical Focus (Fertility), and an Obsession, plus the ability to sense the state of descendants of an ancestor.
Valkyrie (p. 45) Grants Minor Magical Focus (arms and armor), the personality trait Reckless, and the ability to change mundane clothes into full armor.
You'd provided page references (that is, noted down the specific pages in the printed books) where the rules for each Mythic Blood was to be found. Except in the case of Apromor.
In the (wiki-) page linked, you provide this. I would have prefered if all of the (printed) page references were found in the same place.
