Eugenics In Fantasy Settings

No.75366086 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Something from another thread got me thinking, how might eugenics work in a fantasy setting? I've heard of the Dragon Blooded from Exalted, sure, since I'm using them for my OP image, but that focuses more on making sure as many new DBs exalt as possible than any trait or traits that would exist in this world, or correspond to actual genetics for that matter, since IIRC, DNA does not exist as such in Creation. Getting back to the original topic, how might eugenics work in a fantasy setting? If magic can alter biology, how much knowledge of DNA/inheritance should it require? For that matter, how much should a fantasy setting understand about genetics/inheritance at all? Presumably they would have a Mendelian-level knowledge if they're doing this at all, but should they go any further? And besides trying to make better soldiers or something similar, like increasing the number of mages if it's genetic, what are some good goals for a fantasy eugenics program, and how could it have gotten started in the first place?

Sorry for the wait, my work had people quit and another get hurt, so I ended up with more shifts then planned. Sorry for the wait.

Would magnus be broken if he was captured and forced to have sex with a null maiden? Will he lose all his powers and become a null boi?
