    To be fair, Onyx Path Stretch Goals have a tendency to, well, stretch when the Kickstarter is really popular.

    I think I just put it over the $60K mark, so all but one stretch goals are done. Yay!

    Clearly we need more stretch goals.

    Unfortunately, I'm working right now. So I don't get to download and peruse the books for another five or six hours or so. *sigh*

    With the first two stretch goals down too.
    Yeah, that's in USD. Costs for the last few KS have just been high like that, but this time of course I had to pledge more to get both books. I'll live though!

    What we know from the podcast about Scion: Masks of the Mythos (MotM for short)...

    MotM is the Scion horror expansion book that expands the setting with a cosmic horror.

    MotM assumes that the Great Old Ones and other Cthulhu Mythos exist in the World with normal Gods - but actually operate outside of reality, outside of normal rules. Divinity is their metaphor for existence, but they actually exist outside of these principles. There are no Mythos Titans - they are all Titans-like to other deities.

    • There are 13 Great Old Ones Patrons in MotM.

    • The Scions of the Mythos have a dark, twisted Fate - and they infect the world around with it. Most are Chosen (by the Stars) or Created - only a few are Born.

    • Most of the game is about finding a balance between your human half - and the cosmic terror you bring to the world. 'Dark Hero' to say that. A bit like the Scions of the Titans. Only you corrupt the World by your presence.

    • The Scions of Mythos do not have a Legend - they have an Awareness instead - although they generally do the same. Besides, they receive a different version of Purviews and Callings.

    MotM, following the tradition of the normal Call of Cthulhu RPG, extends the Procedurals rules to turn Scions into investigators and researchers of the Lovecraft canon and others. ❤

    Shipping costs have been rising quickly over the last few years. OPP isn't shipping enough books overseas to get economies of scale. So, they're stuck paying normal shipping rates for things, which are not cheap.

    I think the Dragons represented in the book are meant to stand without ties to any deities. What I mean by that is they don't rely on 'their place' within mythology. That would play into the theme of being a third player between 'gods vs titans' conflict; they aren't tied to pantheons through shared fate but history and geography.
    Heck, if Dragon is meant to be used without Hero (just Origin), then there is a shot they don't even Legend!

    So the Leviathan might have ties to the Abrahamic faiths, or someone could have tried to created one with the story we know. It might be Lotan, or that could be someone else.
    I think in the Dragon podcast it was mentioned that Heirs have their Inheritance, and I think it's a representation of how much the Heir is buying into the baggage of their inherited memories, and the more you dive in the more Dragon you become.

    Leviathan is a mythological creature that Thomas Hobbes adopted as a metaphor for state and government.

    Nasty brutish and short is how he described life without a state or government.
