    Psh, I've been doing an on-again off-again project for writing up the Royal Alicorns as possible Patrons.

    Just need their Motif, PSP, and Pantheon Path. >3


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

      Well, I meant using them as inspiration for standard Scion characters spawned by real world gods. But I'd love to see Alicorn Patrons. (Luna is one of my three favorite characters, for a number of reasons.)

        Speaking of Grant Morrison, his run of Flex Mentallo might be good to examine. Just replace "superheroes" with "gods."

          I played once Part Time Gods, and the concept of the game is really nice, more Superheroic than godlike, maybe because of the way we played, but still...

          I would like to try to have a story where all characters are Incarnations of the long lost gods, that for some reason start to popping on earth randomly around the world and learning what they are. There are a few other godlings rising, but none of them are on God level, maybe Demigods still. And the monsters are popping up around too, but not as incarnations, maybe by the act of the Titans or something.

          The final idea is to discover how the gods died and why they are reborn, maybe to avoid the same fate or to repeat so the world live for one more circle.


          The proper answer to “Hello There” is, obviously, “General Kenobi”.

            His entire Doom Patrol run was great. I'm hoping it's possible to do something like Danny the Street in Scion. (Also Fiddlers' Green from Sandman.)

            Flex Mentallo would, I think, make an interesting starting place for the idea of Charles Atlas as a modern god, perhaps part of a pantheon of similar figures. And then something like Luther Strode as one of his Scions.

              Check out the graphic novel series 'Wayward' by Jim Zub. A must.

              Everybody mentions 'Sandman' by Gaiman (rightfully so), but as good are the series 'The Books of Magic' by John Ney Rieber and 'Lucifer' by Mike Carey. Both are spin-offs but each rise to their own.

              BTW, The 'Lucifer' TV show has NOTHING to do with the comic. Sadly...

              Cheers,

              Ken

                The gods in their generations perhaps? A new generation of deities every 30,000 years, New gods arrising and dead gods being reborn. Rick Riordan, comic book superheroes, and the Iron Druid Chronicles have all been mentioned. How about The Earth Chronicles by Zecharia Sitchin? Just say he was wrong about the Annunaki being ancient aliens.

                  I think surprising no one mentioned Ragnarök (Netflix) series. I has just one season, six episodes of nearly 40 minutes each. The series has its ups and downs, but I think it gets a lot of "This is Scion: Origin" vibe.

                    The new series on Netflix Ragnarok is a great show of Scion as well.

                      It does a lot with a very low budget. I liked it, but it does have a bit of a preachy after-school special vibe to it.

                        Campfire Graphic Novels has a series of books about various Hindu gods/myths, including Krishna, Sita, Hanuman, Ravana, Draupadi, and apparently the Mahabharata as a three part space opera, as well as a couple of Greek ones (Zeus and Perseus, I think). I've read the Krishna one and it's pretty good.
