    This Video gave me some new ideas about how to handle a Party Wipe.

    Never considered the idea that the heroes might have physically survived the final encounter, only to be split up and sold into slavery, before!

    The concept of moving the campaign to a different plane of existence (i.e, the Afterlife) is also a cool concept, but it would be hard to pull off, without everybody in the party being close to the same alignment.

    Basic Ideas For Genasi:


    Half Ifrit + Half Bugbear = An ill tempered Bugbear, who's thick fur has been replaced with a dense aura of raging flames. Even for Bugbear standards, his presence on the field of battle is considered terrifying.


    Half Dao + Half Kobold = An abnormally strong Kobold, who's scales are almost indistinguishable from well polished metal. His fellow Kobolds revere him as some manner of deific figure, come to elevate their clan to greatness.


    Half Djinn + Half Kenku = A white plumed Kenku, who's free spirit, wide vocabulary...

    I'm also skeptical about the validity of that legend. The last thing I heard regarding Huntsmen is that they're the Fae equivalent to Meeseeks.

    "We Meeseeks are not born into this world fumbling for meaning, Jerry. We are created, to serve a singular purpose, for which we will go to any lengths to fulfill! Existence is PAIN, to a Meeseeks, Jerry! And we will do anything to alleviate that pain!"...

    I don't know if you've played Black and White before, but it takes place on the world of Eden, where the ancient Greeks, feudal Japanese, brutal Aztecs and Norse Vikings all exist within the same time period as each other. The gods also live publicly alongside their worshipers, using their powers to either foster their development, or just lording over them with an iron fist. Since they are functionally immortal, conflicts between the gods become matters of faith, rather than conquest. The Gods of Eden can only interact with territories that have a strong belief in their power. If nobody believes...

    Scion 2E: All Myths Are True



    Although, the Secret World setting includes heavy amounts of Lovecraft into its setting, both in the early sections, as well as late game story. And there's at least one thread on these forums right now talking about how people aren't particularly happy with that idea.

    True, but compared to art from the periods that came before (and after) it (such as the Roman empire and the Renaissance era), the art of the medieval period is generically bland, and caters to an idealized version of what Christianity wanted to see in the world. But the Greeks and Romans had been producing art that depicted the world in a far more realistic style, and in doing so, it was far more inspiring to the people at the time....

    What Changeling in their right mind would even so much as humor the idea of romancing a creature from the Hedge?

    I'm pretty sure stuff like that is exactly what lead to them being captured in the first place.

    Sure, I understand that to a certain extent. But to the best of my knowledge, nobody in the Greek mythology actually managed to succeed in bringing somebody back from the realm of the dead, once they physically expired. And going by 1st edition's rules, everybody who ever attempted it would have been demigod status, if not greater.

    But it was still an important facet of the mythos that "immortality" for them meant something between having an absurdly potent healing factor, to just being outright invulnerable to all harm. Speaking of imprisoning people, I believe that's actually...

  • Thanks for the answers. I haven't been keeping up with the development news, so I'm pretty behind on this kind of stuff.

    One More Question: What about the Contracts and their power scaling?

    I came across a fandom wiki that tries to explain the new setting's mechanics. But when you get to the contracts section, it only includes the 1st and 2nd dot levels of each contract. Granted, there seems to be a lot of them, but the fact they only go up to rank 2 has me confused, since the other books have generally gone from 1 to 5....

  • So, I noticed that Changeling: the Lost, 2ed is finally out (added it to my Wishlist), but when I clicked on the live preview, I was surprised and confused by what I saw in the table of contents.

    Namely that most of the stuff I was lead to believe would be featured in 2e seems to have been gutted from this book.

    First and foremost, I didn't see any mention of the Grimm Seeming we were expected to get, and there is an extremely limited amount of Kiths to go around. Most of which aren't even useful for combat!

    Anyways, onto my question:

    True, I believe the Theoi are supposed to be as close to true immortality as you can get. The only thing I know of that can kill one of them is the blood of the Ceryneian Hind.

    And even then, I think that might have been something cooked up by the live action Hercules series, rather than part of the official mythos.

    So if you want to stay accurate to the mythology they stem from, any Scion of the Theoi would be nigh invincible on the battlefield. The only thing the villains could do to stop them would be trapping them in some kind of prison....

    Considering that the idea of dragons exists across many different cultures, instead of being a universal concept, I think making them a separate faction is the most logical way to go. That way, you can have Scions from Europe, Asia, Africa, or wherever you want, and have them all technically qualify as dragons, even if they appear vastly different from each other.

    EDIT: Come to think of it, the fact that they can be so wildly different also makes sense. The Gods and Titans are not universally identical in their behavior and mannerisms. You've got your warriors, your tricksters, your...

    I was neither trying to threaten you, nor make jokes. But I saw the previous quote and just felt compelled to reply with my own thought on the subject.

    No, it's incomprehensible because it represents the concept of infinity, something which the human brain is not properly equipped to deal with. You might, if you try hard enough, envision a being who embodies a thousand different things at once. You will never be able to imagine something that had no beginning and has no end. No matter how large you imagine the universe (or deity, or whatever) to be in scale to our world, your brain will always place subconscious boundaries and limitations on its scale and power.

    No matter how hard you concentrate on a singular thought, your brain...
