    replied to Scion: Sorcerer sourcebook---ETA?
    Yeah, the answer to "When is [Future Project] coming out?" with OPP is "When it's ready"

    Because if you give a ballpark, people will complain each and every time you make a delay. And delays will happen. Even if you estimate conservatively, the only way to guarantee that you'll get your book out before your initial guess is if you tack on four years.

    Sometimes even THEN-

    If you want some decent if simplified 101 stuff, look up the Miscellaneous Myths by Overly Sarcastic Productions. Sometimes the stuff is a bit simplified but Red doesn't really outright lie....

    You know why I think so many cultures have a "Large reptile that if you squint and are a little high you COULD call it a dragon"?

    Because lizards and snakes exist.

    And people throughout history looked at them and went "Wow, a big one of those would be scary"

    Where's my dishonorary degree in applied anthropology?

    Oh... Extra Mythology. :/

    Okay you may not have known but I'll just make this a public announcement: Extra Mythology is hot garbage of the worst kind and should never be used as a resource by anybody for anything, except possibly as a resource for "How Much Can One Channel Fuck Things Up?" Their videos about Aztec Myth and Celtic Myth are especially egregious.

    Like, their research is exceptionally poor. I remember our forum's own Watcher did a breakdown of their first Celtic Myth video. His final takeaway was essentially "How do you make Scion 1e's Tuatha...

    Yeah, the problem with using life span as a resource in a Tabletop game is that that's the problem of the PC in the future, after the story concludes, so it doesn't matter.

  • More seriously if we hadn't had to deal with the glacial pace of Holden and Morke in the early years of the Edition we may have actually had Sidereals in progress already. It's undeniable that once Minton and Vance took the reins we've gotten actual progress. Pissing and moaning like a petulant little baby about 'FIIIIVVVVVEEEEE YEEEEEEEAAAAAARRRRRRS' solves precisely nothing and makes you look like a brat.

    Now, there were definitely some poor choices in the corebook. One, it had too many goddamn Charms. Fucking hell, there are too many Charms. I heard someone once say if you took...

  • Also worth considering is that like, not every Cult will be structured the same. It's like asking "What's a church like?", the answer is "Well what denomination?" and from there it spins into twenty more questions on things like how many people attend, what's the main priest like, to say nothing of the many follow-up questions about denomination.

    Some Scions will get invited to small-group temples that sprang up because the town has a high population of followers of that religion. Some will be sent there by their Patrons, going "These are my loyal followers....

  • Honestly part of the thing is how a Cult interacts with a Scion depends on... Basically, ANY number of things.

    As Nyrufa mentioned, Pantheon plays a role. There will be a lot of cultural expectations based on the Pantheon.

    Are they a cult to a specific God? Is that God the Patron of that particular Scion? That may color expectations.

    Is this a cult to the Hero? Because those happen too, and that ESPECIALLY will color how things go.

    It's not something you can make a small guide around, because as a gaming aid and storytelling aid you'd probably...

    I'd probably allow "I just had an extended fight with a master of the Single Point Style, could I spend some XP to pick up some Dots in the ability?"

    replied to Children of Titans?
    I heard on the scuttlebutt that some Titans may have a primary Purview, and may have some associations of other similar Purviews.

    That said, you say that as though Scions of Gods don't use Relics and Guides to get more Purviews outside of their Inherited one.

    Also, the sample adventure "A Light Extinguished" features a Scion who works for a Titan. Not quite the same as a Titan Scion.

    How I'll likely do it is that if you're a Scion whose Patron is a Titan you'll probably treat them similar to having a God for a Patron. Inherit a Purview, maybe pick...

    Technically you can call up a Path for Contacts more than once per session, you've just strained the connection and you gotta do them a solid before you can use it again.

    replied to Analogies of the Pantheons to Christianity
    I'm just gonna relink this homebrew of an Angelic Host Pantheon by MorsRattas. It's a great deal more Jewish than Christian, but if one wanted to do Abrahamic Stuff in Scion I'd probably point them there first....

    ... Okay. Okay.

    Okay.

    Sometimes I play up my sarcasm. Sometimes I'm cheeky, sometimes I'm a smartass. This time, I'm just going to be upfront.

    This is a bad idea you should stop immediately

    Like, no. Christianity has enough of a history of sticking its fingers into everything without people who know nothing trying to make it worse.

    Also, holy shit... You got NOTHING right in this list. There are parallels that you can draw between Christianity and the Nordic religion and you identified literally none of them, showing a lack of understanding...

    replied to Question about Favoured Approach
    What Mike said. I believe changing your Favored Approach will take 2 dots from each Attribute within the Approach and put them into your new Favored Approach. So you're effectively moving 6 dots.

    It'll still need a Motif, something that encompasses the kinds of Marvels you perform with the Purviews associated with it, and gives a hint as to its personality. Such as "Whoever Holds This Spear Will Holds Destiny Itself"...

    Weapon Tags are mentioned in Origin. And the weapons are so simplified they don't need a massive amount of charts with a bunch of Meaningless Numbers. And yes, for a Relic Weapon you just add the tag on top of the basic templates. So your spear would probably have the Lethal, Melee, Reach, Thrown, and Aggravated tags.

    (Spear sample template found in a sidebar on page 124 of Origin)...

    With the Enhancement drop to +2, the score of the Relic is down to 3. 4 from the Purviews and 4 from the Enhancement, -5 from the flaws, that's 3. So you can maybe put on some specialty Knacks, or maybe the Aggravated tag.

    The Aggravated tag got some errata, so it ignores armor, plus aggravated injuries can't be healed in combat, and indeed can't be healed period without magic.
