When a HERO decides to have a baby, they decide its name, sex, and class.
The game then makes a new level 2 player of that name, sex, and class with
the same password as your player. The bloodline module simply tracks this.
The father is marked as having this new son and the son is marked as having
that father. To start the creation process type bloodline create, and then
follow the instructions.
When you have a son or daughter and you do not belong to a bloodline, you
start a new one. The game then asks what bloodline name type you will use.
This will contain your name and it will be a simple 1, 2 or 3 menu:
Starting a new bloodline with a mage daughter named Molokia !!
Select the name of your bloodline:
1) house Vryce
2) the house of Vryce
3) the Vryce Bloodline
4) the line of Vryce
5) the Vryce line
6) the Vryce lineage
NOTE Since the name of your bloodline child is echoed throughout the mud,
do NOT abuse this. The name should be something that would be
approvable. You may wish to choose a name from the NAMES list ahead
of time, or you can PRAY to ask if the name you are considering will
be acceptable. If you create a name that will obviously not be
approvable (at the discretion of the gods), you WILL be frozen.
Do NOT create a bloodline child with the intent of giving it to someone
whose site has been banned, and who cannot create his or her own
Everyone under this founding player would be known like the following:
Reese of the House of Vryce
Reese of the Vryce Bloodline
Reese of the line of Vryce
NOTE It is a good idea to change the password of the bloodline child
before giving it to anyone else, or to change your password directly
after creating a child. This prevents anyone else from knowing your
password. Of course, if you decide to play your own child, this is
ANOTHER NOTE If you have a GOHOME at the time you create the child, the
child will inherit that gohome. If you get a gohome later,
the child does NOT get it for free and will have to pay the
10 mil to get it. You may want to consider buying a gohome
before you start your bloodline, so your entire family will
be able to live there with you!
YET ANOTHER NOTE Your e-mail address will be inherited by the child. You
should remind the player you're giving it to to use the
EMAIL command to update the e-mail so it's accurate.
This can be very important for situations like lost
passwords and mudmails to gods.
