    replied to The LGBT Thread II
    Sooo, got today sick day after very hot two months project in my life - and wanted to talk to you about our new, greatest problem in Poland...

    LGBT-free zones

    Yes, you read it correctly. Our regions and communes parliaments declared now 1/3 of the country places 'free of LGBT ideology', my home town included. Yes, it is very similar to the Nazis' announcing 'Jewish free' cities in the 1930s Germany. It started over half a year ago in my Voievodship (USA State equivalent). Our local activists leader - Bart Staszewski - photographed people from those communes on the...

  • I wonder why in A'stru and Duat frame are only Assessors - but not Judges of Duat? They are both the same beings, only different names, in the end.

  • [Dark Eras 2] Hunger in the Black Land - Middle Kingdom Egypt

    Did not see the topic for this era - so starting now. 😎

    I very like that this era can work also as introduction to 2E Mummy: the Curse, when someone is intimidated by the style of original corebook. Also, interesting is focus on beasts, werewolves and Prometheans in those times.

    Good read! More interesting thoughts I will write later. πŸ˜‰

  • I like this take with set 6 Archangels and 7th as the power struggle for the all thos that 'could not get to the list'.

    When working on my lists I thought there is one large problem with Archengels Pantheon as it is - we do not have Virtues of it. Virtues are that drives Scion Pantheons as factons - they also give games version of gods needed impetus. So it's important.

    Myself, I would give Archangels conflict of Communion ( Community?) vs. Ego - all stories of them are about 'doing the right thing' or 'what YHWH commanded' - versus their own, personal desires. With...

    replied to Running a WTF Solo Game
    The problem is that - at least this Scion Solo engine - works exactly like that. You have general random dicepools to see if actions work, get bonus based on if it's plausible or not. If question is not simple one, you roll on the table of Icons, images that should let you decide what elements are in the scene, and from there, how it will unfold. Here is heart of this solution, on two tables (product have other 20 pages of advices ):

    replied to Running a WTF Solo Game
    You need to clarify if you run 1:1 game ( like only you and your signaficant other} or solo ( you are both ST AND player). 1:1 you run mostly the same as usual, in WtF you would only need bigger cast of NPCs.

    Now coming to Solo games. In Scion Solo I've read you roll on everything, even thongs like 'is this bad or good shadow?' or 'am I alone here?' - you have special dicepool on narrative elements and rolls on those. Rules for Scion are here - https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product...olo-Adventures - as Storypath is 'sister' game engine for CoD one, it should more for you.

    replied to [2E] Are Conditions in Scion?
    I think that you do not seen CoD sheets and how we limited Condition in those only to small frame for it, having reference in corebooks. I know this, as I designed most fan sheets for Ephemeral Entities, Dark Eras, WtF 2E, BtP 2E and many, many more - all to be seen on Mr. Gone site, as fan variants. Why not simple frame could be put on Scion sheets?



    Weird, in CoD books we have ready lists and still play that we can invent new ones, on fly. Strange... ...

  • The Discordant Refrain in this era is interesting idea - not only it let you troupe play across time - i. e. we play our characters ancestors - it gives us also way for those charcter to communicate across time and space. We can play multi Eras game with Beasts, finally!

    started a topic [2E] Are Conditions in Scion?

    [2E] Are Conditions in Scion?

    On this, I know there are Conditions in Scion 2E. I only get the topic name from my previous topic on mechanics of gameline, comparing them to Merits.

    The question I want to rise here is more precisely 'where are Conditions in Scion 2E'? I know there are general rules for them in Scion: Origin book, page 66, but I cannot mark where are exemplary Conditions for the gameline.

    As old Chronicles of Darkness Storyteller I'm accustom to Appendix with whole Conditions lists - and in Scion I do not seem to have in both Origin and Hero books. Also, I read it correctly...

    replied to Planning a one-shot and I'm stumped.
    Gnomish, your idea looks very similar to Actual Play of Terrible Trio from Onyx Pathcast - plot is about Poseidon in Miami, but events sound a lot as what you look for. 😎 I love Onyx Pathcast | Episode 54: Scion Actual Play Part One, let's play it!

  • Dukhan, new Clan from 1001 Nightmares era from Dark Eras 2, is off-shoot of Mekhet that crossed their Blood with that of Begotten.

  • On 'Circle of Crone is Covenant' I see from your discussions it's similar to Mage's 'is Free Council is Order or Sect of mages' - on what answer is 'both', as Free Council is vveeerrrryyy loose Order ( having some very basic dogmats) and, in practice, it's third Sect, distinguished from Diamond and Seers Orders. Something similar I see with Circle of Crone - and, to lesser extend, with Fir'awn.

  • Read till vampire section of era - and I'm a bit confused. I'm only passing fan of the Requiem, so could someone descibe to me how really are different those Covenants:

    Ahl al-Mumit vs Lancea Sanctum
    al-Amin vs Invictus
    Fir’awn vs Circle of Crone
    Jaliniyya vs Ordo Dracul

  • I'm not saying here about the Clash of Wills mechanics - I write here that if phenomena is general pointed on the place itself - not particular monster - it should be something like 'and a Grand Mosque rolls X dices on Clash of Wills'. There is not dicepool numbers mentioned there in era text.



    But judges should not be about misdirection more - only about social manipulations of arguments. Which clearly falls under preview of Persuasion Skills....

  • I am getting it right that Refrain is this era mental Contagion strain, related to Pyramid of Giza and tales from 1001 Nights?
