    If a changeling child were left in place of a human who qualified for scionhood through one of the origins, does that mean that they could potentially become a divinity eventually?...

    Neall, may I ask what is being done about the removal of the Prophecy Purview? Will gods such as the Morrigan and Apollo require the Prophet Path?

    replied to Scion 2.0 Project - Enech
    Watcher, I have recently read some information on the Brehon Laws and in particular the status of daughters. How does being a daughter of a Tuatha de Danann factor into Enech? It seems to be there would be some difference in the amount of face one could hold. And also would they inherit any property if the reached the God tier? If I remember correctly daughters could inherit Movable property. This is troubling to me and makes me unsure of using this purview, so I have been looking for other alternatives, even though honour was according to records a huge part of ancient Irish society. Am I right...

  • Manannan's Crane Bag, and Cuchulainn's Shield? Relic Advice Requested Please.

    I currently have a rough version of Manannan's Crane Bag as a relic. I would like to ask if this would be considered acceptable in your games. This is what I have currently:

    The Crane Bag 4- 1 Purviews, 3 Unique Powers (Seems empty except at low tide, bonuses derived from relics carried within, miniaturized storage, Animal [Crane])

    The minaturized storage is referring to the fact that he keeps his house in there while travelling. The bonus is derived from the objects he carries in it which are listed in a myth. The apparent emptiness is directly reference in a myth as...

    Barrule's "In Search of Manannan" gives me chills when I hear it. Crazy dreams too. You can find it on Youtube. Traditional and contemporary Manx music.

    www.barruletrio.com is their webpage. I definitely recommend this band!

  • What's With The Missing Areas in the Kingdom of Northern Ice?

    The Kingdom of Northern Ice (Alaska and Canada) mentions the following areas: Saskatchewan, Quebec, Ontario, Nunavut, British Columbia, P.E.I, Manitoba, Alaska, the Northwest Territories, and the Yukon Territory. These places all have names being duchies, free realms, or lands. But what of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Alberta? Why are these places unnamed in the Books? Were there actually names intended for these or were Story-tellers meant to name them? Has anybody given them names? If so, would you feel like sharing them?

    Animal Purview (Ape)= Human?

    I know this is a matter of viewpoint and is mainly anthropological in nature, but would you consider Animal purview (Ape) to include humans? Personally having taken several anthropology courses, I often think of humans as just a highly evolved ape species. I mean chimpanzee DNA is is only different from human by less than one percent. So personally I would include humans as a great ape. Would you consider this acceptable in your campaign? I would consider communication type boons to ensure a lack of mixed signals or misunderstandings, allowing the scion to communicate on a deeper intuitive level...

  • Conotoxin coated relic help. How would you write-up this poison and increase it's lethality over sessions?

    I am wanting to have a relic weapon have a permanent coating of conotoxin (from one of the more dangerous cone snail species) upon it due to the scion being the child of a water deity and having a seashell collection. I also thought cone snail venom would be a good idea since poisoning by one is relatively rare and there are no anti-venom for treatment. Eventually I hope since I am using Scion 2.0 rules to have the relic grow more powerful (a part of which would include increasing the lethality of the venom). However I have never written-up a poison before and was wondering if anyone here could...

  • How do the various pantheons influence modern politics?

    I was curious as to how the various pantheons influence modern politics. How exactly would they manipulate the political system in ares where they have interest? Is it subtle like through dreams or omens? Or do they get directly involved using their incarnations? Or would they influence the system through cult members, allied legendary creatures, or by way of the the inspiring bar meeting?

    I would be interested in seeing your write-up of the ganconer, mattboggan. Also PookaKnight, thank-you so very much, I wasn't aware that the 20th anniversary edition included such a thing.

    Manannan mac Lir Purviews?

    I was wondering if anyone who looked at 2nd edition of Scion shared my opinions on Manannan's purviews? I personally would have him having the following: Death, Deception, Journeys, and Sky. Moon, where is the evidence for that? Stars? I would have that as a purview of Niamh (his daughter). Water? That would be his father Lir. Death is supported in the tale Manannan at Play where he resurrects a person after cutting off the man's head. Journeys should be obvious to everyone, what with his chariot and Embarr. Here's my justification for Deception and Sky. Mist is the most commonly mentioned association...

    Thanks for the info watcher. I look forward to seeing the results. Good luck with your undergraduate degree, may I ask what your major is? I majored in Religious Studies and focused on modern polytheism.

    replied to Pregnancy Knacks for Goddess of Maternity
    Sorry for the slow response, I've been brainstorming and had so many ideas. Yes this character is one of mine. They are Legend 9, have the Emotion, Fertility, Health, Mystery, and Moon Purviews, and are using Epic Stamina and Dexterity. She is the daughter of An Morrigan and is part Seelie Sidhe. (She is also a changeling fostered by a mortal family in order to give her a human education). She desires to become the Irish Goddess of Rebirth.

    Retainers for Scion of Njord

    I have done some preliminary research on Njord but have been unable to determine what exactly Njord would bestow for Retainers. Does anyone have any ideas? I thought maybe drowned sailors but he doesn't seem to really have any connection with the drowned. Other than that maybe seavaettir?

    And just one last question. When are the Aesir due to be completed? I apologize if I seem rude, but I found it funny that one of the most popular pantheons remains unfinished.

    What can you tell me about the plans for the Animal Purview? I would also like to inquire about emotional manipulation, would this lead to a purview or would it be done through knacks. By the the way, the Kami document was epic! Thank-you for including the dragon daughters of Ryujin.

  • I keep being amazed at the breadth of your knowledge Watcher. Burning as a burial custom does make sense, but I hadn't thought of it before. However have you read the legend of Abhartach? in that narrative the dwarf magician who keeps returning from the dead is buried headdown and a thorn tree and large rock are erected on the grave site. But maybe this an exception. I certainly would have burned him, would have saved a lot of work. I actually have Ogam: the Magic of Trees but I was pretty sure there was at least one other version floating around out there. However I can't find it anymore, so...

    Its not a kith. Its in Nobles: The Shining Host as an antagonist. I apologize if my wording was not clear enough. I was asking if anyone else had tried writing something up for them.
