Which is fine.  What Im interested in is why.  In a how would your rule
kind of way.

     If a living being can be enchanted, do their children inherit . . .

a)      at birth: the enchantment is genetic and multiplies

b)      at majority: when they come of age, and only the first generation

c)      at majority but only one child gets it

d)      not until the old man or mom dies

e)      never: this is terrible, you should feel bad for even dreaming this

f)        Some other option I didnt mention or think of

I'd say never, but without the "terrible...". Enchantment is keyed to the living being (or ring, or whatever) it was cast upon. Else what happens if you melt a magic ring, and pour the material into two molds? It was never "broken"...

There is precedent for many of these suggestions, though. There are some *great* stories based on inherited enchantments.
