  • To be honest, i was expecting as much (that many of the behind the scenes details would be in that chapter and that it wouldn't be discussed until it was released). I tend to assume that things between Editions of a game will generally be similar until the newest edition says otherwise (or someone in the know of the latest lore/information reveals such).

    In 1st Ed, Proxies were more than mere human thanks to the Doyen... thus could achieve higher levels of power than human Psions. Now it appears in 2nd Ed, that the Proxies merely became advanced Psions (again, likely because of the...

  • Yes, I was thinking that there would be some hold over from 1st Ed as to why the Proxies are more powerful than regular Psions and that if players can reach that level, there would also be a similar reason (not the same reason of course).

    So while Psions start off as Tier 2 they can all eventually reach Tier 3 with experience (from my calculations of the needed requirements, about 120 experience). I wonder if Talents will also be able to increase their Tier to 3 (can't see anything to support or prevent such from what I've read, so it could go either way I would say depending on...

  • I've read through the mechanics of character creation... and much of the setting material... and while it explains how to create a Tier 3 character, it doesn't give an in-game reasoning for such Proxy- level Player characters to exist.

    When i build a character, i like to understand the setting reasoning for them being better than the average person of their type. We have in setting reasons for the Proxies to be Tier 3... and know why nearly every other Psion in the setting is only Tier 2... but i have yet to see any in-game reasoning for a PC to be Tier 3 (same level as the Proxies)...

  • It will be interesting to see how Players can reach this Tier of Power. The Proxies who are already at this level have a unique reason for it (I'm currently assuming this is a 2nd Ed mechanic based on the influence they were receiving in 1st Ed), so justifying it for Players will be interesting since it is highly unlikely that the Players used the same method (as doing so would likely make the players privy to spoiler information of the setting... like who is actually backing the Proxies). My guess would be that the players would be some of the few naturally gifted Psiads who came by their powers...

  • Culture does seem to fit most of the requirements for many Artist types... with some Empathy and Persuasion to help as well. Leadership could help for public speaking/live performances to help lead the crowd to desired outcome.

    Physically demanding artwork, like making sculptures would be a physical approach (from the physical effort of might to hew the stone, the finesse needed to get the details right with dexterity or just spending hours of exhausting effort on the project with stamina). Even painting can be physically demanding (more finesse and stamina than actual might though)....

  • Where do Performers and Artists fit in Scion/Trinity?

    After looking through the rough drafts available for both Scion and Trinity, I noticed skills like Art, Performance and Expression are no longer available... which begs the question "What skill(s) now cover these areas?"

    Some skills are obvious... Subterfuge would cover the slight of hand and escape tricks that a Stage Magician would employ... but not the showmanship they also employ to wow the crowds. However, things like singing or acting don't seem to be covered as easily by any single skill available. Another problem is for artists like painters or sculptors and similar...

    They aren't missing in action... rather more or less dormant. However, that doesn't mean that their Titanspawn aren't active in this new world.

    ​Throughout the Demigod portion of this idea, the PCs will be searching the world for what happened during their disappearance... what actually happened to the old Pantheons... and the Titans. They will find remnants of the old Pantheons... most notably other Scions that have survived and become demigods and Titanspawn that remain loyal to their old masters... but as their legends approach the God Tier, they will discover what just what...

    A Brave New World

    With Scion 2nd Ed just around the corner, I have decided to dust off an old idea I had for a Scion Chronicle and see how I could adapt it to the new version of the game.

    ​The core concept of the chronicle is that the War between the Gods and the Titans heats up to such a degree that not even the Gods are uncertain they will be victorious and fear that humanity will suffer greatly should they fall. To that end, the Pantheons decide to work together to create an Ark... a means to preserve a portion of humanity and their own cultures to reseed the world should the worst come to pass....
