  • In the World of Darkness setting, conspiracies and pseudoscience abound. Pentex has been digging to find sleeping Wyrm monsters, Black Spiral Dancers have continent spanning tunnels, and the Nosferatu have elaborate underground networks. And there is also the Void Engineers Subterranean Exploration Corps, who have been fighting all sorts of things down below our feet. So you should feel little restraint in what you have down below, where the Gauntlet is mighty low, and things wriggle in the dark...

    For my tastes, the Dreaming aspects of the underworld would be many. Fomorian monstrosities,...

  • I completely agree with this. Though I could see most of the fae of China being Adhene of varying sorts, perhaps only gaining access to the Autumn world in certain places and times. The wealth of legends surrounding spirits very similar to the Denizens would grant them great leeway....

  • For my own use, I would use Denizens and Inanimae heavily to reflect Asian fae. I could even see Asian Inanimae remaining active and far healthier than their Western versions. The Denizens of China would be quite powerful, and require no tinkering beyond regional terms for them....

  • And let us not forget the (somewhat) stable portal to the Hollow Earth in the crater of Snaefellsj√∂kull (Journey to the Center of the Earth)...

    This is of great interest to me, as I LOVE Iceland. For my own use as a Storyteller, I would have it that the fae of Iceland held out fairly well during the interregnum, and have a fairly prosperous civilization. For my own use, I made a kinain bloodline called the Nidarvellim who are numerous in Iceland.

    Overall, I would say that Icelandic people and areas have a -1 Banality (minimum base of 2). Extreme cases to the contrary...

  • That would be a fun campaign for Talents.

  • At present, I am running a campaign set in Manhattan, with a strong presence from Goblin Town. So I am actually thinking a great deal on this subject. New York City has so many underground tunnels in our world, having an entire Undercity down there. With the addition of Nosferatu vampires, Black Spiral tunnels, Ratkin, and other denizens, there is quite the weird ecosystem going on down there. And with portals leading to the Dreaming, the Hollow Earth, Umbra and Shadowlands, things can get really weird.

    For my game, there are a handful of trade towns, "safe" havens and travel...

  • Oh yes. This is also of great interest to me. Hollow Hills, hidden grottoes and tunnels are excellent "go to" concepts for fae holdings.

    Okay. I get it. For instance; In our world we still have flat-Earthers, regardless of the wealth of information to the contrary....

    For my tastes, it would probably be how the supernatural is treated in the Ghostbusters franchise. It is clearly real, everyone has seen footage, maybe witnessed it in real life. But most people put it to the back of their heads and get on with their lives.

    I like the Cyclops example. But I am a sucker for the Cyclops and Minotaur. They really wowed me as a kid....

    True enough. I am an illustrator, and more than a few people think my art comes solely from inborn talent. Talent is important, but it's really about practice and hard work. I even had an EX girlfriend tell me that a "real" artist doesn't need practice and study....

    That would be funny though (in an awful sort of way). The infidelities of the gods becoming "hot steamy" tabloid fodder, Maury Povich trying to figure out is Zeus really is your daddy, etc....

    With the gods being openly acknowledged in the world, esotericism seems out of place to me. Esoteric thought is all about hidden knowledge, mystic brotherhoods and mysteries. In the Scion 2e universe, keys to the magical cosmos are right out in the open, right?

    Now, Tabloid gospel and fringe groups following upcoming demigods are another story....

  • Yes, I agree. I would really enjoy a setting focused on the crew of an out-bound starship. A group of Novas, human support crew, and the galaxy to explore. Novas an other specialists might go on scouting or other "away" missions ahead of the major vessel. Deal with aliens, explore planets, seed life, etc....

  • No. At least not in the published material. I follow the following rules:

    KINAIN BREEDING
    According the CtD Enchanted, Kinain are usually born of a changeling and a mortal or by two changelings. About 15-20% are those with one changeling parent are changelings themselves, while about 40-50% of the children of two Changelings are Changelings. The rest are kinain. It is also possible for Faerie Blood to skip a generation or two so that parents who are fully mortal (but still faerie kin) can have a kinain or, more rarely, a changeling.

    To add to this, Kinain having

    As someone who lost whole branches of my family to Nazis, I would rather they only exist in a Scion game as the cowardly dead.

    Murderers used by the nastier sorts of gods as creatures rather than honored in any way. Any status among such cursed dead should be a demented, sad shadow. Like shambling, hungry dead saluting each other, despite their arms falling off.
