      Yes.

      Sage Knacks don't have to do with Fate, but knowledge and knowing the World.

        ...

        You know, in hindsight, I feel very silly for not thinking of this.

        • I can see how you'd make that mistake. I can almost imagine that the Sage calling was like "Scholar" at some point, but Sage feels grander.

            Would it be possible to get an idea of what those three might look like? I'm particularly interested in bards, so anything on them would be especially cool.

            Also, thanks for all the great answers and discussion in this thread.

            • Do you have any cooking themed boons in the works? Will artistry(cooking) be a valid purview?

              • Hm, so we have a few names of Fatebound roles...

                Hey Neall, feel like sharing more of the Fatebinding types? Is there one that would fit, say, 'A pre-Visitation friend who now serves as the eye-rolling voice of reason and restraint in this crazy new world?'

                Would that be Boon Companion as mentioned in the Fate teaser from last July?

                Edit: ALSO! Would it be possible for a Mortal to be Fatebound by multiple Scions? Like, could a Boon Companion of one Scion meet up with the Band, interact, and get impressed by the party Sage and want to learn from them, becoming Fatebound to the Apprentice role?

                  I can't think of any examples in actual ANCIENT myth, but in comicbooks, (arguably the closest thing to MODERN myth) I can think of four: Jimmy Olsen, Rick Jones, Snapper Carr, and Amadeus Cho.

                  I find Nick Spencer and Richard Spencer to be equally repulsive.

                      I thought it could have fallen under Forge, since I vaguely recall seeing a distinction of "Useful stuff is Forge, aesthetic/creative stuff is Artistry"

                      ... Cooking is kind of a middle ground, ain't it?

                      And now I'm imagining a Scion simply called the Cake Smith.

                        Multiple Fatebindings

                        Most of the time, an SGC can only be Fatebound to one character, and only as one archetype at a time. If you’ve got a large group or your players are triggering Fatebindings often, though, that can lead to supporting cast bloat. In that case, it’s okay for one character’s Paramour to be another’s Rival, for example. Be mindful of creating schisms within the group, and avoid it unless party infighting is your desired goal.
                        Also, any Resolution of a Fatebinding Condition that removes the character from play must have the consent of all players whose characters are Fatebound to that character. Even if the other PCs are mortal, by virtue of being the protagonists they’re immune to being Fatebound to other PCs. Effectively, they’re already Fatebound to themselves.

                        Fatebinding other PCs


                        Don’t. Fatebinding is a tool to tie Storyguide characters into a Scion’s story, not a tool to force potentially-unwanted relationships on other players. While Storyguide characters exist to serve the story, PCs are solely under the control of their own players. Even though Fatebinding isn’t mind control and any character can resist Fate’s path, it’s still potentially coercive to dictate another PC’s relationship to your own.

                          • I wonder if Jotunblut will be anywhere in the game (an Aesir knack maybe)?

                            It was a bit of a stretch to hang the entire PSP on it, but I kind of was fond of it.

                            • How will members of pantheons who don't really fit the pantheons virtues work? Like for instance Hermes, as he doesn't really fit Egotism or Storge to a large degree (he has a little bit of both, but not to the same level as other Theoi)

                                ​I believe such gods are prone to having the Liminal Calling...
