Hmm. I'll see what I can do.

Fluff-wise the whole thing is about cursed bloodlines. The idea of this is that the bloodline is manifesting on it's own. As such "Embracing" your heritage seemed to warrant a suitably significant change. And when I originally added in the "Lose bloodline, gain levels equal to levels delayed due to bloodline" thing, I realized it would never be a viable option because one to three levels of a class that late wouldn't give you much to use, especially considering the magnitude of features you're giving up.

Oh, and I'm back.
