    replied to Does the public know what Scions are?
    Someone "kill stealing" your deed by saying their the one who accomplished is 100% the kind of thing that can happen. Of course if the impersonator isnt a scion they either dont have the ... fate gravity to really make people believe their the ones of Legend. Or Fate makes sure the scion hear someone is taking credit for their Deed.

    Thats just a personnal decision as a SG but id make the deed accomplishment and possible Legend up on hold until the scion ... rectify the situation

    Its the opposite
    You are known because you have Legend.

    You get Legend by accomplishing Deeds.

    Here is the order stuff happens
    Deeds -> Legend -> wikipedia page about you.

    Less people knowing about you wont diminish your legend.
    Legend diminishing first (tho there currently exist no mechanics for that) would lead to less people knowing about the scion.

    In The World of Scion we could posit that Divinities that became forgotten lost their Legend first and then that caused them to be forgotten.

    They would be interesting to try and write up using the antagonist creation rules.

    The thing id worry most is the TDD arriving en masse when they hear "competition to determine the best at X"
    And then applying in full god tier form to all the events. (Even those specifically limited to Heroes)
    And by worry i mean make a nice story XD

    Nvm that this rule makes no sense since there would be a few Gods already written that cpuld definitely have one (or more) of the titanic callings.

  • Hm, if anything.
    Tension is the mechanic that might work better conceptually speaking to port over.
    Although it wouldnt be as easy as momentum to transfer over to CoD.

  • Hm.

    The primary challenge im reading here for Barbara, would be to figure out how to prevent the universe/the sun/the earth from shutting down if there are no more sacrifices.
    (Ive seen exactly no doctor who episodes ever so its possible they solve the problem in the episode).

    Oh another analogy i could make (apologies for the double posting).

    Say you design a rpg based around how computer works (hardware and software).
    You make the decision to not go with movie hacking logic and instead ask help with engineers, programmers and mathematician to make the content of the game correlate to real life computers as much as possible.

    Now this game is gonna attract a certain group of people who find computers interesting.

    And then you get people also coming in because they want shadowrun type hacking and computers in the game....

    Hm,.
    I guess the best analogy i could make would be someone wanting to play Vampire the Requiem but wants to play DC actually from Krypton Superman.

    Theres a certain backdrop expectation i guess going into not just scions but all games.
    And then that naturally invite the criticism of "Do you actually want to play X game (scion in this instance)"

    But an aspect that i feel is always ignored in response to the criticism is that there are core elements that are totally applicable to scion.
    But instead i feels theres a very big response of "but...

    I think Mage the Awakening take alot of inspiration from the early christian Gnostics as well as a few things written by Plato.
    (Or rather takes inspiration from other works that take inspiration from those sources).

    Im sure research on those subject could offer alot of material for a midrealm or terra incognita in scion.

    The issue ones need to be careful with (in addition to everything said by Sacerdos above) is not to try and interpret the cosmology of other culture with this.
    Like you shouldnt go "Maya from Deva mythology is definitely the Astral space...

    Hm i think its a mistake to try and make it a Grand Unified Theory, that applies to everything.

    But that said, it would certainly be interestinf to research which mythologies have "realm of pure thoughts" in their stuff.
    Depending on how you classify philosophers theories in scion there might be a case for a theoi aspected midrealm of platonic ideals.

    Woohoo. I get to feel all smart now. 😊
    I really like when a book gives me clues and plot hooks that i can try to figure out.

    So very well done and i'll be hype to see how you develop the nementondevos + TDD expansions once Demigod is done and out....

    I quite like the Mabon entry and if i ever get to play i'd love to do a scion or incarnate of him.
    Am i right to think the mention of a "Shining youth with unshorned hair" is a reference to ... Apollon maybe?
