  • Storypath

    So with Scion and Trinity On there way, both using the new Storypath system, what would people think of an edition of Scared lands Using the Storypath system? what are the chances of that happening, or indeed any fantasy game using the Storypath system?

    It could be cool, but I'm not sure we're going to see an official conversion.

    Scion is also already a fantasy game, it's just one that takes place in a setting roughly equivalent to the current modern world. The vast majority of the Scion variant of the Storypath system seem easy enough to move to a more traditional fantasy setting, even if it might take some tweaking to use an existing setting due to different assumptions on how magical powers work and impact the world around them.

      I wonder if the Slarecian Vault rules would allow someone to create this conversion?

        Reading over the FAQ... it's not entirely clear. It would be best to contact Onyx Path directly if you're considering doing it.

          At this time the Slarecian Vault only allows 5e OGL and Pathfinder rules, reflecting the two Player's Guides available.

            Not only do I think that the StoryPath system is better mechanically, but the idea of playing Scions of the Divine Victors fits thematically with both games.

              I'm a little uncertain on that, to be honest.

              While the 8 divine victors are portrayed as quite active in Scarn overall, there seems to be considerable dithering on the authors' part on the matter of their progeny, with lore coming and going on the matter of what being a demigod in the setting actually means - Drendari is pretty much the only case (afaik, feel free to correct me) where "god and a mortal had fun times and a demigod was born" actually fits the bill and even that was later retconned into the siren mom actually being Belsameth in disguise.

                Drendari wasn't born from a mortal... but don't tell Enkili, he totally thinks that woman was a siren. It was Belsameth. (Divine & Defeated, pg. 95.) She snookered him. There are no known demigods who were born of a mortal.

                Going off the pattern you see in Divine & Defeated, the Player's Guide to Clerics, Lost Tribes, and Blood Bayou (which doesn't make it canon, just a pattern): Titan + Titan = God. God + (Titan / Demon Prince / God) = Demigod. Titan + MURDERING PSYCLUS = Erias and 5 Others We Shouldn't Talk About...

                The Pathfinder version of the new PG has a whole chapter on mythic archetypes and among them are things that could rightly be called quasi-to-demi-gods who are actual children of the gods. Scion probably could make for an interested Scarred Lands conversion if you went with more fantasy stuff than the modern stuff.
