Happy 2019! We’re back in the world of Scion 2e. Last time I reviewed the first book in the game, Origin, which (unsurprisingly) is the first steps into the world of Scion. The characters there are more powerful than your average human but they aren’t quite divine. For that, you need this book: Hero.
In my review of Scion Origin I could only fit so much detail in there but there’s so much more to say! I’m going to try to make a three-person band for a Scion game and see how it turns out. I’ll be trying to break the system a little here so we’ll see what limitations crop up in the process. Join me!
Years ago, White Wolf Publishing released Scion, an RPG about playing the children of gods with the chance to grow into a god yourself. I loved it, despite the flaws, and will heartily defend it even while acknowledging it’s issues. It’s like that friend from middle school: they were sort of a terrible person and they’ve grown up to be a person you sort of can’t stand some times but there are so many good memories that you share that you will always love them.
