Strength- Blood Abilities vary in strength from Minor, to Major and Greater, to True. Some Blood Abilities have multiple parts, such as a (Minor) and a (Major) component, and each part needs to be chosen separately. Many Blood Abilities have Feat prerequisites. Like feats, you can only choose each Blood Ability once unless otherwise specified. For this condition, it is considered a separate blood ability if it is of a different power level. For example Light of Reason (Major) is a separate power from Light of Reason (Great), and each can be chosen only once. Unlike Feats, Blood Abilities cannot be retrained.
Derivation- Next to each Blood Ability is a list in [brackets] of all of the Bloodline derivations which are eligible to choose that ability.
All Blood Abilities that are Spell-Like (Sp) Abilities have a Save DC of 10+ Spell Level +your Charisma Modifier. Unlike normal SLAs, Blood Abilities are Divine, not Arcane. Unless otherwise specified, Blood Abilities have a caster level equal to your Character Level + your Bloodline Rank.
Blood Abilities that are Supernatural (Su) abilities and allow a saving throw have a Save DC of 10+ 1/2 your Character Level +1/2 your Bloodline Rank +your Charisma modifier.
