  • Moana

    I just got home from seeing this movie and it was absolutely amazing! The thought and care put into representing Polynesian myth was so evident and it honestly made me even more excited for Scion.

    If only we the Polynesians before Demigod, but alas, I guess even the Scion team can't put EVERYTHING in the Hero book.


    Disclaimer: I'll huff, grump, and defend my position, but if you're having fun I'll never say you're doing it wrong.

      Something that made me laugh was imagining the obnoxious gods from various pantheon having their own version of Maui's song 'Your Welcome'.

        Did anyone else expect Moana to be a Demigod herself?

            Okay, sorry, thought spoilers were implied by the thread in general. Is there even a way to spoiler tag on this forum? I'm not aware of it, but I will gladly add one in if I can.

              Not really - her humanity is kind of thematically important I think, as is her identity as part of a community Maui can only be outsider patron of.

                Dude it's a thread about the movie in relation to Scion. Don't come on the thread if you don't want details about the film.

                  No, but I expect a whole slew of Scions based on her when Demigod comes out with the Polynesian pantheon.

                    Yeah, I thought it was pretty likely based on how they were handling the mythology (from dev discussions and trailers). But I don't mind the spoilers. It will be interesting to see all the foreshadowing when I go see the movie this weekend.

                      Where i came from they had to change the title of the movie into Oceania, because the original name of the movie is the same one of a famous porn star.

                      Also nice to know that's a good movie.

                        I wasn't really being serious, don't worry about it.

                              I saw it on Sunday, and it was AWESOME!

                              ​So, Maui? I'm thinking Warrior, Trickster, Creator? Purviews: Epic Strength, Animal (All), and maybe War?
