Campaign Design - Bloodlines: Ignan-Blooded

(adapted from Unearthed Arcana)

Individuals with elemental blood in their veins are not uncommon in the Three Worlds. Creatures of elemental fire often crossbreed with the inhabitants of the world, resulting in progeny with abilities and affinities that reflect their elemental ancestry. Sometimes those with elemental blood show up immediately, and in some places they are common enough to form their own communities and breed true among themselves. In others the effect of such crossbreeding can lie fallow for generations, only to come to the fore after many generations of dormancy.

In most cases, the elemental ancestor can be ascertained, or at least guessed at based upon family histories and legends, but in others it is a mystery. Some scholars have speculated that no interbreeding with an elemental creature is necessary to result in elemental-blooded children - only that the parent be exposed to a powerful enough source of elemental power during conception, pregnancy, or delivery of the child.

Those who bear elemental fire within their veins are often high-strung and quick-tempered. Their eyes often seem to glow like embers, and their skin may take on a reddish hue.
