    replied to The Atua - A Kiwi Perspective
    The names that have been dropped already are the Maori ones, so that’s the focus I’m expecting, with their Hawaiian Mantles included, but as with the Manitou and Orenda, I’d be surprised if Pele didn’t make a cameo as a respected and feared cousin.

    Last I remember hearing, we’re getting a bit of an expansion on them in the Companion because that is exclusively how Nemetondevos Scions exist....

    There aren’t any at this point. The Incarnate are going to have a special relationship with Fate as they scale up, because the narrative of the divinity they’re inheriting is so strong; but other than that they all work the same way and only vary as individuals as far as we know....

    replied to Errata: Scion: Hero
    Page 183 refers to getting 2 dots for one calling, and one dot each in the other two. This is a total of 4 dots. However the sample characters have 5 dots each. I assume this is a relic of the rules being upgrades from Origin level rather than making a new character. Whether a starting Hero is supposed to have 4 Calling dots total or 5 needs to be clarified, and the character creation chapter kept consistent whether it’s describing creating a new character or upgrading an Origin character.

    Yes the formatted text with most of the art is linked on backerkit. Crowd sourcing errata for it as we speak,...

    No information is provided for determining the Health Levels of Creatures.

    Also on page 202 there’s a reference to dot ratings in the Storyguiding chapter to determine how to take such a monster as a Creature, but no such ratings are in said chapter.

    I don’t know if this is a mistake because it seems to be done consistently, but it doesn’t make a lot of sense so it seems like an effort: while the headers in the Knack section consistently say “Heroic Creator” “Heroic Liminal” etc, the text below throughout the section keeps referring to “Mortal Knacks” instead of Heroic Knacks.

    replied to Errata: Scion: Hero
    The Theoi Titans on page 151 have inexplicable personal Virtues no one else does instead of following the same rules for Titans as all the other write ups.

    Phoebe has “Foresight” as a Virtue?

    Rhea has “Patience” and “Endurance”? (i’d recommend Fecundity and Kinship)

    Typhoon has “Destruction”, which I’m assuming should be Rapacity?

    I can't decide if I should note that in the errata thread or not

    Edit: it wasn’t coming through on my reader, but there are apparently notes that say “art in process”, so no it’s not needed as errata.

    But apparently the ancient Tuatha art doesn’t show any of the care toward cultural accuracy that the other pantheons do, so that’s very disappointing....

  • I’m not seeing why that would be necessary. There are plenty of evil gods. I mean it could be in Titan hands, but just being evil doesn’t seem to me like an inherent reason for that to be the case. Is it in an adversarial role to the rest of the gods?...

  • Something that enhanced your power with mortals via them upholding their end of a given covenant. I was going to play with the idea that the Fallen having soul-contracts was a corruption of this that played on the same metaphysical principles.

    But now i’m leaning toward more overtly angelic effects involving the invisible radiance of God.

  • Without them you can't "expect" a God to answer your prayers. Is intervention possible without a purview? Sure, if the Storyteller decides it's plot relevant for an NPC (the deity) to step in. But if your character is a faith healer who reliably can perform miraculous healings like the Apostles - that's going to take the Health Purview.

    The power in play in the cosmological sense when Moses parted the Red Sea was Yahweh's, but Moses still took the active step of holding out his staff knowing what would happen. It wasn't just a miracle that intervened to benefit him, it was...

  • The Manitou, Kami, Teotl, and Theoi Scions generally all beseech external powers for intercession to perform Marvels, via their Pantheon Motifs (accidentally said "Approaches" above, my mistake) on page 279 of the Hero draft text....

  • There is a reason so many Pantheon Approaches involve prayer/sacrifice/etc. Miracles wielded by Scions are often ascribed to divine intervention on their patron deity's part. Moses would be in no way unique in that regard. Also the battle feats of King David were often borderline-superhuman in scope, and Solomon is effectively attributed with powerful sorcery.

    To say nothing of post Biblical figures like the Bal Shem Tov!




    See every single miracle wielding Saint (in the Catholic sense, not the Scion sense of the word "Saint"). You don’t...

  • OH. I see: You are using Saints and Prophets the way Scion mechanics use the term. I was confused because I was thinking of the Abrahamic senses of those terms!

    This is why I wish the game had called people gifted with knowledge of the future “Oracles”....

  • Given how God specifically transmutes that Staff and tells Moses to go and perform miracles (Exodus 4), I’m more inclined to see that as a specific Relic rather than being something that’s a common power of Prophets, Saints, or Angels....
