A while back I looked at the Titanomachy sourcebook for Scion Second Edition. I want to show you the character options from that book today, and also catch everyone up that it is the final week for Scion: Demigod on Kickstarter. If you like Scion and haven’t backed that yet then head over there now and get on board!Continue reading “Titanborn Heroes for Scion 2e”
The spread of Scion 2e books continues to grow! You can check out my previous reviews of Scion: Origin and Scion: Hero (plus more) and the upcoming Scion:Demigod is I’ve already backed on Kickstarter. Today I’m here to talk about the newest book from the game line, all about the enemies of the gods and potential destroyers of worlds: Scion: Titanomachy.Continue reading “Scion: Titanomachy Review”
While gamers have a lot of superpowers compared to the Muggles around us (“you’re bored? just make a new character!”) we still have our mental health to consider and having the outlet of roleplaying games is a big part of that. I’ve read a lot about how to organize games online (the best article I’ve seen is this one by Mike Shea) but today I want to talk a little about gaming by yourself.Continue reading “Now’s the Time for Solo Gaming!”
The second edition of Scion is a great game and the Community Content on DriveThruRPG is pretty awesome. I’ve collected a few of the products and every one so far has had some awesome stuff to add. Out of everything I’ve looked through, though, here are the top five that I’d recommend you start with.Continue reading “Top Five Scion Community Content”
I started looking at Scion Second Edition with the first book in the series Origin. To showcase the character creation process in that book I made a sample band of characters that I’ve grown to love. Since that time I reviewed the second book, Hero, and updated the sample band to Hero-level. Today I’m back with another character creation showcase, this time developing two brand-new Hero-level Scions to take a look at making Heroes from scratch instead of updating them. Take a look and see what you think!
When I reviewed the Origin book for Scion Second Edition, I went over character creation separately in a post outlining a sample band of characters. Now that I’ve given my thoughts on Scion: Hero (and the pantheons), I wanted to circle back around and look at that same band of characters at the Hero level. I don’t need as much space to discuss character creation this time around but why not take the time to explore how you step up a character from Origin to Hero and make a brand new character from scratch as well?
On Tuesday I wrote about the Book 2 of the new edition of Scion, the book about Hero-level play. Hopefully it gave you a good idea of what’s included in the book but one thing it didn’t give you a sense of is what the pantheons in the book are and how they resemble the first edition pantheons. This post’s length should show you why I split things up but without further ado… These! Are! Your! Gods!
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.
