    Demigod still takes a theistic approach to the changing of the past, because in mythology what the past was really like wasn’t important, what mattered was what the meaning of the past events is, how they relate to modern circumstances and problems that modern worshipers go through. Also it should be noted that Demigod says they outright retroactively change history, like evidence changes so that Athena was indeed always a god, and Gods being entities unbound by time and space are still capable of retroactively acting their creation myths so it isn’t really disrespectful, at least not as much...

    Yeah my biggest issue with Dragon is that it just kinda loses a lot of what makes Scion 2e stand out from other urban fantasy: the theistic tone and approach, the clear love the writing has for religions and their mythology, as well as respect to the real life people of those religions. Dragon just kinda ditches all that for a more standard urban fantasy set up, which on it’s own would be fine, but when compared to the rest of Scion 2e, I cant help but be disappointed, even tho dragons are my favorite thing ever

    Also I’m still really stuck on why Shiva doesn’t understand that...

    Also I’m confused about the Dead dragon flight stretch goal, we already have plenty of dead Dragons in the main Flights, so why do we need a whole factions dedicated to them? It just feels like faction bloating

    Honestly so far only the Longs seem to be interesting, every other Flight is just kinda disappointing and the lore in general is just very jarring and just doesn’t feel Scion, also it’s weird that Shiva of all people doesn’t understand the Many in one, one in many thing about Vasuki and the Nagas

    Like if a lot of the gods can be environmentalist while still being not being ecofascist and genocidal towards mankind, why can’t the Dragons? Especially since it means you have several Dragons who can not have anything but a very antagonistic role to the player group

    Yeah the ecofascism stuff kinda makes it hard to see the gods as being in the wrong for fighting the Dragons

    On the Scion discord someone had a nice idea for an Heir, specifically an Heir of the Drakon with the note that some of the Drakon were children of Ares, and the Heir treats all of of Ares Scions as new uncles and aunts

    Also yeah, armor doesn’t have to be full blown combat armor, even a leather jacket can provide at least soft armor, or sport pads, or even a long coat can provide soft armor

    Any god that deals with communication or language, or any god that fills an adversarial or chaotic role tbh

    I like the Long preview, they feel like a full blown faction with politics and stuff, rather then a bunch of randos and assholes with vaguely similar goals. And dragon court politics is a fun idea

    Also Musk is again not responsible for anything, it’s engineers who would have gotten it done even if Musk never existed who are responsible for all the technology and stuff

    Although some of the Knacks do seem pretty OP, like Baying of the Hounds, which as written can kill a God tier character, including Mythos figures. Now I’m all for some Titus Crow esque beating up the Great Old Ones, but I feel like it shouldn’t be as easy as just sending some star dogs after Cthulhu over the hills, well that’s what’s Errata’s for at least, maybe something like “against an equal or higher tier being, you need to pass a Clash of Wills”

    Name Nemesis is also weird since it’s effect is already how Fatebindings work.

    I like the new Boons, and I feel like with minor edits for the costs you could even use a lot of them for the normal Purviews same with the Innates, especially since the Sky innate is way better then Normal Sky’s (to be blunt) weak innate

    Looking at the first part of the Flights chapter manuscript, the fact that Flight is it’s own form of Dragon Magic is odd, since 1: that is a really specific thing, and 2: man the Flight Boon from Sky is going to be really outdated

    Even all those are not his work, just the work of engineers he treats like crap, Elon is just an unimpressive douchebag who just happens to be ridiculously rich....

    replied to Lovecraftian mythos in Scion
    This reminds me of a joke about the Deva: they read the contract for being a Mythos deity and nodded agreeingly to all of it like being incomprehensible to humans and being cosmic and universal in scale and grandeur until they got to the part of having to either not care about humanity or be actively malevolent towards them and they went “fuck that”...
