    This is neither Mage, nor Exalted... it is a completely different system from either, to begin with, so those comparisons are not useful. And our interpretations make perfect sense... 'You can only use a single Knack every session. You may use it as many times as you want, but only the one" is a pretty simple concept. I can understand wanting to house rule that... as we've noted, we all do exactly that, but that is the baseline assumption of the game....

    As I mentioned, where I quoted Page 105 of Origin, yes, that is exactly what I'm telling you. You can only use one Knack a session at Origin....

    Hero states that you can change Knacks at Minor Milestones on Page 223, though it depends heavily on your story structure how common those will be... you may well end the session without achieving any milestones, and given that the example of a Minor Milestone in the story is 'get water from every Ocean in the World' and 'move a hill' (Page 280 of Hero), you likely will end the Session before doing either, at which point you get to swap out Knacks anyway.

    Kyman's alternate rule for filling in your Knack slots during the session instead of all at once in the beginning is taken from...

    There's plenty of stuff still to do at Hero level, so I wouldn't worry too much... it's designed so that you should be able to stay at Hero forever actually, and a lot of Scions never ascend to Demigodhood.



    No timeframe yet, definitely not till after Demigod.



    We don't know if Scale will be expanded... as it stands now, 6 is the max Scale difference. Scale does not directly map to 1e Epic Attributes, or to your mundane Attributes the way Aberrant's Mega Attributes do, it just represents when something has an overwhelming advantage over another...

    The Society Path for Scions somehow should tie into their Pantheon. This does need to be a literal Society though... for one of my characters who is the human Incarnation of the Goddess Durga's Lion, his Pantheon Path is literally "The Lost Lion", his contacts for this Path are in fact fellow members of a sham retreat he was once forced to go to after he started having dreams about his Leonine self... not directly related to the Pantheon a all, but still these are people he only got to know due to his Pantheon connection.



    You can only pick up Knacks from Callings...

    There's no contradictions, Incarnate Scions and Incarnations are different things. By default as per RAW, an Incarnate Scion only arises from a dead God or a dead Scion that left enough of a mark on Fate to spawn a baby-Mantle... an Incarnation is a piece of a living God sent down to Earth for some purpose, usually with a pre-planned trajectory. I don't think the book actually uses the word 'Avatar' for either concept but I could be wrong.

    Of course, there's some Pantheons (*cough* Deva *cough*) that spawn off what can only be described as Incarnate Scions while the greater Deity...

    replied to What are your character concepts?
    Word of Neall states that the children of two Gods would be a Hero level Scion of whichever parent the player chooses... but there's no reason to not have one at Origin. Gods having human children that grow up and either just stay Heroes or become Gods in their own right happens in Hindu myth at least, though uncommonly, so it wouldn't break anything. You just choose which parent to get the mechanical benefits from....

  • A Denizen that's also a Scion can use Purviews and gain Boons as normal.

    Also, the Knack to get Guardian etc Knacks is itself an Immortal one, so you're paying 2 slots for each Heroic Knack if you take them (and Heroic Knacks remain useful throughout), so that's really not as versatile as you're making it out to be. Other than that there's really absolutely nothing stopping you from making a Denizen Scion... Your total number of Knacks active is still limited by overall number of Calling dots... Denizens just have a different power set, not a greater one, and are usually balanced...
