    Hm, the Grimm also evoke deathly/underworld Aesthetics, what with the visible bone plating. And apparently in one of the livestreams it was mentioned that Grimm Goo was, in the early planning days, a different substance that could create Grimm by pouring it on animals. Like a normal wolf would be transformed into a Beowolf by applying Grimm Goo.

    Maybe Grimm Goo could be some kind of Sorcerous or Necromantic weapon that corrupts that which it touches?

    Look. I expected liberties in Dragon. But I didn't expect this.

    Like, I've gone out to tell others about Scion 2e. I've spoken to people who've never heard of it as to its merits. And one of those?

    I've mentioned that Scion 2e is trying to be a lot more respectful to the faiths and cultures involved. And I know there's writers for the line that are sticking to that, and they do great work.

    But like, this is gonna have to be a MASSIVE asterisk slapped on that statement. Because I'm saying "They're trying to be more respectful" and then this book...

    That being said, now that all the Flights are out... Good lord are the Flights underwhelming. To say nothing of times when they seem to be written in a tone that seems somewhat spiteful towards a lot of the gods.

    Which yes, I read the introduction, that's the point they're going with, but it still leaves a bit of a bad taste in my mouth. When I read the first chapter I thought "Huh, if this were a World of Darkness property it'd probably go down with me easier" and I still think that.

    So on a second read, I may have been a smidge uncharitable going right to "They want to purge humanity" since there are some Serpent writeups that (in defiance of the tones mentioned at the start of the Flight Blurb and the end blurb) seem to think tossing the ones responsible in the underworld is 'Too far' and some making points to try and protect vulnerable populations.

    I lay this mostly at my having read five previous Flights, found maybe one of them that engaging, the rest underwhelming, and when I got to Serpent and it opened with another "The world was once great,...

    Honestly after enough times reading "This dragon is angry and wants to kill humanity for pollution" it all kinda bleeds together. Yes, we get it, ecoterrorism and perpetuation of that freaking "Humanity is a virus and the Earth is better without us" bullcrap that throws the bystanders and those effected by climate change under the bus instead of focusing on the very small number of people who are actually most responsible for most of the damage.

    replied to Looking for Nisqually Legends & Folklore
    So I did a google search and there's a couple of stories I found on the Nisqually nation's web site.

    Here ya go. It's only a couple stories, but the stories are knowingly shared by the tribe itself.

    That may depend on any number of things, because it's a medium. I figure if Pantheons have Gods that are patrons of things like newsletters or heralds, those might fit. But some Gods may see Social Media as being an extension of their worship dynamic that they have with mortals....

    On the topic of the sample characters... Marius has Legend 1 and Awareness 1 and has 5 Boons?

    Was there a kind of miscommunication about how Boons were in 2e? Between this and the Necronomicon 'Flaw' saying that you can only get X boons from the fragments... Was there a miscommunication about how you obtain Boons in 2e?

    The sample characters have Virtue Tracks, but no Virtues ON them, as noted. Which is very odd.

    Now if I were to (jokingly) suggest Virtues for the Mythos Scions it'd be "Curiosity" and "NOPE!"

    Curiosity is the urge to go "Well I do want to know this thing..." and NOPE! is the urge to go "Fuck this I'm out"

    Mostly I don't like giving Musk any credit because he's a chode who's not even impressive in anything he did. He inherited blood money from parents that benefited from jewelry trade and threw it at things.

    Oh yeah. Very clever. Much tricky.

    Fuck Musk, the only thing noteworthy he's done himself is getting Twitter and Reddit dumbasses to think he's Tony Stark....

    replied to [Sc] How to run a Heist?
    For what we have so far:

    Look up the rules for Complex Actions in Origin (Page 69), where the Challenge is achieved through a series of Milestones across a number of Intervals. So the Hacker needs to make a Technology roll in order to disable the security system, the Thief needs to roll Subterfuge to squeeze through the air ducts, while the Face is at the front desk making Persuasion rolls to keep the receptionist distracted. Every member will have a Milestone they need to achieve.

    For a ticking clock scenario, put in a finite amount of Intervals. "Okay, the security...

  • Literally none of that is exclusive to the Mythos. The Deva Astra can be channeled into a blade of grass. The Ars Goetia would, in the context of Scion, let you summon demons for extremely specific niche purposes. The chain that binds Fenrir is made of the sound of cat footsteps and other things that either don't exist or no longer exist.

    That's why I don't give any weight to "Well the Mythos Relics, especially the Necronomicon, are Different and Special". In the context of the other Pantheons existing, they're really not. Like, if you're doing "Oops Just Mythos"...

    I take it that this also can be used to like... Increase the Strength of an existing Fatebinding. Like if you have one at Strength 1, instead of gaining a new Fatebinding you can just improve its Strength by one....

  • There's ways to make cursed/flawed Relics without making them... UNFUN.

    Like, "If you use this Relic and play the music on it, Azathoth make awaken and unmake everything" is, from a player perspective, a very bad Relic. Oh, I could use it but if I do it then I unmake everything because there's no way that I'm winning a Clash of Wills against an Actual God.

    Now, it makes for an amazing MacGuffin. "An ambitious Scion of the Mythos has the sheet music, and if they play it they will awaken Azathoth. So like... Stop him, please" You can make a plot out...
