    Scion TV series in development

    Official announcement.

    Scion TV series info from 'What's Up with Onyx Path' panel on OP Con!
    • Set on 10-12 episodes. First series set in UK, probably London.
    • Pantheons – At least Norse, Celtic, Egyptians, South American, Titans ( of mentioned previous )
    • Using Mists and Masquerade of 1E - but using elements of 2E everyone knows about Myths. Reason is on series budget – showing Myths everyone will cost A LOT.
    • But everything is based on screenwriters idea - the streaming platform that pick up may change those things.

    My apologies, I didn't see the blurb on that site regarding locale. I still stand by my "wait and see" approach regarding details.

    Don't forget the Elgin marbles as well.

    There are indeed Irish people in the UK.

    There are also Indian practitioners of Hinduism. Afro-Carribbean people. A long history of Classicism drawing on the Roman era. History of Viking settlements. Egyptian people and important artifacts taken from Egypt.

    You get the idea

    That brings up a whole set of obnoxious stereotypes I (an Irish American) fear and loathe.

    Scion the TV show will be set in the UK. Introducing brand new heroic and well loved characters from the Roleplay game for the first time in a live action adventure series.
    So, I would imagine they plan for most of the show to take place in the UK. Not surprising considering Jenkins & Tate is based out of the UK. Yes, they are still in the planning stages, but that doesn't mean we can't speculate.

    What's "set in the U.K."? Speculating about locations, length of series, involved pantheons, or anything beyond "Hey, cool, they're working on an idea" is like saying "We had sex! What should we name the baby?" There's a long bumpy road ahead with every series proposal, and details are far in the future. Congrats to OP for getting this far, but I don't think we're going to be at the "which pantheons will be in it?" stage for a long time to come.

    Now let's hope their vision is somewhat close to how we who love the setting see it. If the Native American gods are reduced to either new age tropes or cigar store "Injuns," I for one will scream.

    But they'll probably stick to the Greek gods at first.
    Greek and Norse probably.

    It is a big deal. Yes, it's just a first step, but it's a pretty big first step.

    Yeah this all sounds completely speculative. The company looks like it was just created specifically for this project.
    Not created for it, but it is brand new and this is their FIRST project.

    For me, done right, series like 4-6 seasons story from Origin to God Tiers would be fascinating to watch, just to have mirror of how to graduate plot between Tiers in RPG games.
