Sorcerer Bloodlines

Description Source: PRPG Core Rulebook
The following bloodlines represent only some of the possible sources of power that a sorcerer can draw upon. Unless otherwise noted, most sorcerers are assumed to have the arcane bloodline.

NameSummary
AberrantThere is a taint in your blood, one that is alien and bizarre.
AbyssalGenerations ago, a demon spread its filth into your heritage.
AccursedMisfortune, pestilence, and nightmares follow your family like vermin drawn to carrion.
AquaticYour family traces its heritage back to the ocean depths, whether scions of undersea empires left in the wake of nomadic sea-tribes, or the spawn of creeping ichthyic infiltrators into remote seaside villages.
ArcaneYour family has always been skilled in the eldritch art of magic.
BorealDescended from inhabitants of the lands of ice and snow, you count among your ancestors giant-kin, troll-born, and frost-rimed spirits.
CelestialYour bloodline is blessed by a celestial power, either from a celestial ancestor or through divine intervention.
DaemonYour powers derive from daemons, who take pleasure and gain power from manipulating mortal frailties like aging, pestilence, famine, and the horrors of war.
Deep EarthThe echoing cave-songs and the rumble and creak of primal spirits deep below the ground thrum in your soul and in all your family line.
DestinedYour family is destined for greatness in some way.
DivYou can trace your ancestry to one of the foul, corrupted genies known as divs.
DjinniYou were born with the power of air genies, and the magic of the djinn is strong in you.
DraconicAt some point in your family's history, a dragon interbred with your bloodline, and now its ancient power flows through your veins.
DreamspunYour family is a long line of dreamers, who dream not as ordinary mortals do but rather as those who reach through and touch the supernal realm of dreams and the farthest shores of night.
EctoplasmThe power of the Ethereal Plane thrums in your mind and pulls at your flesh.
EfreetiYou were born with the power of fire genies, and the magic of the efreet is strong in you.
ElementalThe power of the elements resides in you, and at times you can hardly control its fury.
FeyThe capricious nature of the fey runs in your family due to some intermingling of fey blood or magic.
GhoulYour connection to the hungering undead shapes your magic.
HarrowJust as knowledge of the harrow has passed from generation to generation since time immemorial, so too has a deep spiritual connection to the otherworldly forces bound by the harrow passed through the ages.
Imperious(Human Only) A scion of forgotten kings, with a lineage rich with the dust of ancient empires spanning every golden age of humanity's history, an imperious embodies the apex of human potential, as well as human temerity and uninhibited hubris.
ImpossibleYou can see beyond the mundane, and are capable of visualizing the improbable, and even the impossible.
InfernalSomewhere in your family's history, a relative made a deal with a devil, and that pact has influenced your family line ever since.
Kobold Sorcerer(Kobold Only) While many kobold sorcerers tout their purely draconic bloodline, over generations of eldritch training, some such spellcasters have created a bloodline that, while tinged with some draconic magic, is the embodiment of the race's virtue distilled into arcane form.
MaestroThe spiritual power of art and song runs strongly through your family line.
MaridYou were born with the power of water genies, and the magic of the marids is strong in you.
MartyredOne of your ancestors paid the ultimate price for your beliefs.
NagaNaga blood flows within your veins. Perhaps a curious naga experimented upon one of your ancestors in an attempt to create the perfect servant, or maybe one of your ancestors was a shapeshifting naga. Either way, you boast powers similar to those of true nagas.
NaniteEither you were born from one of the forgewombs scattered throughout the wastelands, or you were infected by nanites, which now course through your blood.
OniAs slaves of capricious oni lords, your ancestors were forced to yield to their masters’ hedonistic desires, inevitably tainting their descendents with oni blood.
OrcThe rage of your ancestors burns within you, and the taint of savage orc blood flows through your veins.
PestilenceYou were born during the height of a great magical plague, to a mother suffering from an eldritch disease, or you suffered an eldritch pox as a child, such that your very soul now carries a blight of pestilence within it.
PossessedThe mystical connection with your possessing spirit allows you to gain more control over your body and mind.
ProteanYou have in your veins the ever-changing wildness of primal chaos, the raw essence of unbound creation.
PsychicPsychic power runs thorough your blood, whether it be from a familial predisposition to psychic power or exposure to a powerful psychic phenomenon. Whatever the source of this power, your mind is a dangerous weapon.
RakshasaAt some point in your family's history, one of your ancestors was tainted by the influence of a rakshasa.
SerpentineYour bloodline carries the lingering stain of ancient serpent races that ruled when the world was young.
ShadowSpirits from the shadow plane dally at times in the world of light, and such as these lay with your ancestors once upon a time, imparting the mystery of shadow-stuff into your lineage.
ShaitanYou were born with the power of earth genies, and the magic of the shaitans is strong in you.
StarsoulYou come from a line of stargazers and explorers who delved deeply into the darkness beyond the stars.
StormbornYou trace your heritage to fierce and proud spirits of storm and sky, and living lightning sings in your veins.
UndeadThe taint of the grave runs through your family.
VerdantYour progenitors infused themselves with raw plant life, binding it into their own tissue and passing it down to their literal seed, giving you innate communion with nature.
