  • If they were apart of a canonical Scion game. They would be treated much more like titanspawn and other antagonists....

  • Let take a step back. Obviously, we have differing opinions on the matter. I am not stating you are wrong for having that opinion. You have many good arguments of why it would be hard to put The Mythos in a setting such as the stock-standard one for Scion. I think it is possible, not easy, but possible.

    The finished product of Masks may just end up being an alternate setting where The Mythos is the only Patheon. (I don't think it will be, but who knows.)...

  • Hmm, it is less about "throwing down" and as you said, it is more about tough choices. The heads and some members of the pantheons are certainly willing to make very tough choices and get their hands dirty. However, many of the things that need to get done on The World are done by Scions. That is where more modern sensibilities (yes, western bias here) come in. Would a modern Scion be willing to brutally sacrifice a hundred unwilling innocent mortals, damning them from ever reaching an afterlife, just to keep an unknown thing at bay?

    I am not saying you are wrong. The Mythos...

  • All good points. These are purely just my opinion on the setting. If the canon makes sense to you, great. It doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

    As for the Mythos. Something interesting that my buddy told me put a good bit of this into perspective. Somethings just need to be done. Not nice or good things, but things that other Scions with balk at. An example he gave me is something in "Johny the Homicidal Maniac". There is a wall that needs fresh blood or something very, very bad begins to happen. That is where Mythos Scions come in. They supply the fresh blood. Now those...

  • So I have to apologise. I am still reading through all the setting material and getting used to The World. You are right, the setting is more aware of divinity than I thought. My explanation is wrong.

    Frankly, I am not a super fan of divinity being is so well known. It throws my head for a loop because the setting would be very different from a historical perspective. But that is where "suspension of disbelief" comes in I guess.

    As for The Mythos and their place. There are always those that live on the fringes of what people would consider normal. There are...

  • Well, we need to take a moment and step back from our out of game Omni-Knowledge. We know that better and brighter gods exist, but many of the humans in The World do not. The gods in modern times don't directly interface with humanity. This forces them to work through their Scions. Scions can't be there for everyone for every reason. This means that the Mythos can easily start influencing normal people because they could exploit their ignorance.

    Now, I will give that modern humans in The World maybe more on the ball because they have social media and other connections. They may know...

  • One of the biggest considerations if/when you want to run Scions that are a player character is that they are likely not going to be the "bad guys". *Insert scene from Wreck-It Ralph*

    The Mythos fights with itself just as much as it may fight with other Pantheons. While The Great Old Ones do not love nor care about humanity, they still want to use humanity. Whereas Titans do not consider mortals in their actions, with apathy if you will. Old Ones would but in the most negative way possible. Instead of loving humans, they hate humans. That means there is an emotional connection....

  • Not sure because I am not too familiar with that Dagon. Likely? Whatever suits your story?

  • Yeah, the line between Titan and God will be critical for this Pantheon. I divided it up between Outer God and Great Old One for ease. Nyarlathotep gets to break the rules because, well, it is Nyarlathotep

  • I did a small update. Eventually, I will write up a quick explanation of the god and how/who they have for Scions.

  • Thank you for the feedback. I need to do some more reading and overall conceptualizing but I think I may move most of the Outer Gods into the "Titan Camp" with Nyarlathotep being the outlier. That would remove Shub from potential parentage, but we can't all get what we want....

    The Mythos (aka, Yog Sothothery), Homebrew Scion 2nd

    Because I am super excited for Mask of Mythos I excised my creative ich by writing out my quick interpretation of the Mythos.

    I know there is a lot Chris will be creating and adding to Scion 2nd Edition. This is just to tide me, and others, over until then. I might add more gods later if I feel frisky. Enjoy!

    The Mythos



    Virtues: Nihilism vs. Domination

    All the great beings within The Mythos are profoundly alien. Their ways are not human ways and what they do few dare to understand. A Scion of the Mythos struggles with inhuman impulses...

    How does the Virtue track work?

    I am a bit confused by the Virtue track. You put one Virtue on one end and the other at the opposite end. Where does the track start? In the middle? If you move the track counter closer to that virtue when you do something that is in line with that virtue, doesn't that mean you are lowering dice?

    I assume that you gain a number of extra dice equal to the number of dots you have in the virtue, on top of the one gotten from spending a momentum, when you do something that resonates with that virtue.

    As you can see from the makeup of my question, I am very confused....
