    started a topic Scion 2E Demigod Kickstarter

    Scion 2E Demigod Kickstarter

    Topic for the Demigod Kickstarter itself - and the talk about manuscript preview shared on it. KS starts in less than 10 hours, so thread awoken in order. Just few hours for real party... ( For now, you can read more here about Titanomachy book that just was released in Advanced PDF! )

    Hmm doesn’t seem like it, it seems like just an expansion of that mechanic of gaining another character’s Relic at the cost of getting a Fatebinding

    So, quick question about creating Relics through Fatebinding ordinary items: Beyond the standard maximum number of Fatebindings a character can have, is there any limit/cost to creating Relics this way, such as paying XP for the initial dot?

    Yeah Neall has said on the Discord that they’re available to Heroes, which makes sense since most of them aren’t any better then Hero Immortal Knacks and instead are more meant to give mechanical support for the other aspects of Callings(and of course there’s Size Them Up, which is Heroic in it’s effects)

    They're just described as Immortal Knacks and I think I saw a comment from Neall on a discord that they're open for Heroes to buy. I mean, most of the Knacks aren't much stronger than any other Heroic Knacks, just more versatile.

    (I did submit some errata for clarity though)

    The paragraph on Immortal Knacks (page 160 of the new all in one manuscript) says:

    As your character progresses from Hero to Demigod, their Callings and Legendary Titles become true forces of nature. A Demigod can throw the weight of their divinity around to influence The World just as a giant might utilize their size. A wider variety of Knacks are available that allow you to Imbue for Scale: (...)
    I read this as “Demigods have access to those, and Heroes don’t”, but I may be wrong...

    This is what you think or it's something written in the manuscript? Or an unnoficial errata mentioned by the devs?

    I have a question, all Immortal Knacks described in Scion Demigod can only be purchased by Demigod or Scions of Hero level can buy then too?

    I don’t see why a Demigod couldn’t try to remove themselves from a pantheon, probably wouldn’t be easy but there’s nothing stopping you from doing that

Like, just to invent a random example, say a Scion of Hades devoted to wealth and money raises himself up to Demigod status, but as the newly christened "Mammon", a lot of his Legend seems tied up in Renaissance/early Enlightenment era European folklore rather than with anything to do with the Theoi. Or Columbia as a Scion of Athena becoming more connected to 19th century Americana than to Greek myth. Or is this the sort of thing that God is more likely to be dealing with?
    I think that might be more God-level play; the section on the Keeper's of the World describes their plan as a Creation Myth for a new pantheon.
    Demigods do get to define their divine identity by creating their own Mantles, but tying themselves to a new culture or people is both not strictly present in Demigod, (though the Covenant birthright is still a thing), and it defiantly fits God better.

    I seem to recall one of the 'bad guy' scions in First Edition taking on the role of Santa Muerte. Granted, it was at god level, but I don't see why a scion couldn't decide earlier on to go for it and to model themselves after a vacant role or an image outside of their own and basically 'faking it until you make it'. After all, you are what you do in Scion. There's no reason you couldn't get an early start, and the RP options would be awesome. Can you imagine Hades popping in on the would-be Mammon with a 'Son, we need to talk about your career choices.' talk?

    Forging one's own Mantle is forging one's own Mantle. It doesn't really say a lot about going from a Demigod in a Pantheon to becoming Independent, but I'd allow it for taking a Deed to reflect forging a Covenant, and then a major Deed for officially breaking away from their original Pantheon.

    Sorry if I misunderstood your focus. I don't want to make your job harder.
