    Scion Q & A

    So I've been coming up with a number of questions regarding Scion 2e & I've decided to start a thread focusing on them. If anyone has any questions they want to ask, you can absolutely post them on this thread if you want to. The below link is attached links to what I believe is the first Scion 2e question I asked, & the link after that is for the second. Later posts will feature the questions that I've thought of since.

    Thanks.

    Seems a bit unbalanced since the Awareness Innate powers are not that OP so i wasnt quite sure if i understood it correctly.

    If they get one they don’t get the other, they are the exception, but yet they get one innate power.

    Does this also go for Mythos Scions? I mean based on the preview Manuscripts it seems like they can only ever acquire one Innate power.

    Yes. If you have access to the purview you always get the associated innate power.

    The correct Callings of Fujin are Destroyer Leader Primeval.

    So I was just reading through Scion: Titanomachy & I noticed something that didn't fit.
    Fūjin's Callings are listed as "Destroyer, Fortune, Primeval".
    The problem here is that Fortune is a Purview, not a Calling.
    So my question is: what would be an appropriate Calling to slot in here? Me, I'm thinking either Guardian or Warrior based on his write up, but I was wondering whether anyone else had any better ideas.

    Depends on the feel you want for the game. I probably would adjust the antagonists and obstacles down in power a bit rather than adding knacks. That lets me as SG fine-tune things easier.

    Ok, I did not know that. I've always considered Santa Claus a mashup of Christian and British pagan mythology, especially Father Christmas from England.

    Odin and Santa Claus seem like complete polar opposites as characters. But maybe that's why Odin is such a grumpy and mean person in mythology; he extracted and isolated every little fragment of generousity and kindness into one of his mantles.

    The Callings and Purviews are perfect though. Maybe he should have some sort of ability to see if people have been good or bad as well?

    If you stat out Santa then you should probably have Krampus there as well.
    Here's a more in-depth rundown of the connections between Odin and Santa.

    Oh, and if you really want some Scion flavor, here's Santa as a Scion, written by the guy who wrote The Wizard of Oz books

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Li...of_Santa_Claus

    It even got one of those Rankin Bass stop-motion adaptions!

    That is actually good to know, may just pick it up after christmas. NGL I am very tempted to run a Christmas in July adventure for my own scion game. Well, if my group even gets to that. Hell I could probably fit it in as the next adventure of my Scion: Atlantis (as in the disney movie) pulp themed chronicle.

    Santa Claus (Mantle of Odin)
    Callings: Creator, Guardian, Liminal
    Purviews: Passion (Joy), Frost, Journeys, Artistry, Forge

    Good, Bad, Fugly, how is it?

    The Shen in 1e had this "caseworker" option for making Scions. Will this option be making a comeback at some point in 2e?
