This submod is based on the concept of the Valyrian Blood submod by Unsavory, which itself was based off the work of Sarcastik's Blood of Valyria submod. While the concept is the same, the code has been redone and is implemented differently. The core part of the submod is to turn the dragon hatching/taming bonuses from culture into traits. This essentially allows non-Valyrians to have those bonuses. I did this mainly to have characters that would have these bonuses and happen to be of a non-Valyrian culture (I'm looking at you Jon Snow) to have them.
On startup, characters will receive a blood trait based on their parents' cultures. In some cases, main characters like Jon Snow or Aurane Waters, where their parents are either hidden or one of them isn't known, a trait is given to them directly. As of now, only those two are done in this manner, so if someone comes across any characters that have a situation like theirs and should be done directly as well, just let me know. For generated characters, they will receive a trait dependent on their culture.
Throughout the game, children will receive a trait depending on what their parents have (or don't have). Children with parents who both have the same blood trait will receive the same trait. Children born with one parent having lesser blood have a chance of the blood becoming diluted ( twenty-five percent chance as of right now; might change depending on feedback.
There is also an event for characters to have a small chance (five percent) to increase their blood trait with a mean time to happen of ten years if they are a dragon rider, not a dragon rider but have a dragon as a friend, are of Valyrian culture or religion, or already possess a blood trait. The time for the event to fire increase or decreases on certain conditions. It decreases slightly when a character is either a dragon rider, not a dragon rider but has a dragon as a friend, and/or if they are located in a volcano location. It decreases greatly when it's the age of dragons (4+ dragons in the world). It increases greatly when the cold winds flag is enabled.
This submod does not contain features like the dragon egg cache
