Is there an option to use Blood Rank as your spellcasting modifier as there is for both of the Elorii-specific Elder Sorcerer options (Elementalist/Mendicant of the Aspect)? I didn't realize it during the playtest, but as written, it heavily skews to Kelekene as the only Elorii who can reach the pinnacle of both blood rank and spellcasting ability, and in fact, the other four will have to essentially completely forego one of the two for the other. While choices are understandable, making it a non-choice for the one type seems terribly unbalanced.

As yet, the answer is no. Obviously there are no Elder Warlock archetypes that are presented in the Pacts book that allow you to use your blood rank as your casting modifier.

Should there be? Maybe. I really like the idea of using Bloodrank as a casting score. Gives players reason to chew through some of the blood ranks that provide abilities that don't directly help you realize the character build and/or concept you had in your head. (Similarly I would like to see a psion option for vals that has the option to run on bloodrank).

Write a proposal to Henry and submit it?

In the Campaign Guide, the Elorii Elementalist has a built-in option to use your blood rank.


I also had an idea for a feat that would do the same thing to include in Codex of Magic
