After reading over it and then re reading about this today I will have to say you can not use another blood. It says it has to be the creators blood. Therefore using anothers blood will not work.
Oh well, I can still do something similar using effigies, but those buggers are more expensive and less intelligent.
Oh, the having others shape the body option is just so a creator with zero craftsmanship ability isn't necessarily stuck working with a creature that looks like a misshapen abomination.
Nothing quite like having a steward so ugly it makes children cry :P.
Nice, that xp is enough for Jonathan to go ahead and get out of the kiddie group.
Just so you're aware, in Kn's game, your xp goes to 0 on reaching a new level. So you're going to be level 2, with 0 experience. If you gain 3,500 experience when we go for the hobs again, you'll be level 3, with 500 experience, so on and so forth. It slows leveling progression down considerably, especially on the high end.
Re: XP progression slows down even more when you build stuff that eats up your XP. Like Jason's class of character and his magic items.
Don't worry about me, Artificer grants a limited reserve that I can draw from instead of my xp. Kn also let me take a feat (Stripped down version of Item Familiar), that grants bonus xp.
I've been adding said bonus xp into my craft reserve rather than letting it take me ahead of others. Between the two, I have yet to fall behind Rachel, the only other party member who's been here from the start.
Jonathan, you may wish to discuss how to handle your maneuvers with Kn. The random nature of what maneuvers are available at a given moment is liable to be rather awkward in this format.
My personal suggestion to you two would be to not mess with it. Steal and use the Warblade's maneuver system instead. Much simpler to deal with on these boards.
