    replied to What Purview Would Alchemy Fall Under?
    Yeah. Alchemy is more the means by which a character inacts the purviews rather than a purview in itself. So the answer would be: all of them.

    As a similar example, a 1e character of mine was a mangaka. In this edition one of her relics, a portable drawing board, would have the motif of “drawing reality one frame at a time” and she’d perform her purviews by drawing frames of a manga.

    She also had spider friends and would use their help in enchanting places by asking them to web rooms and buildings in particular ways. Which would probably be a second relic with...

    The issue is magic in a Scion sense re: PsPs is not what D&D calls magic.

    So how divine magic doesn’t feel like should be how the PSP should be based. That’s just manipulation of the weave.

    For a scion pantheon of Faerun I would look more at the culture and folklore of things....

    PSPs are generally “how that culture views magic”. By that I would ignore arcane and divine magic as that feels more like it has the position of technology in our world.

    So I’d look at the practice of invoking the Gods when doing something in their purview. A rebel might build a shrine to Bhaal after slaying a corrupt minister in an attempt get the god to turn eyes away from her.

    A sailor appeases Umberlee. A wizard acknowledges Azuth when doing research. Etc.

    All that implies the superstition and invocation is something involved with acknowledgement...

    You don’t need more, really. Marvels are amazingly versatile. The innate powers are effective. And knacks are often work horses.

  • Fire is a thing that appears in Japanese myth but it’s never really a major force mythologically speaking. It’s a tool but not really a character.

    It may just be that something they see as such a common tool of mortals isn’t divine. While living here I’ve heard and seen lots of stories related to water, wind, earth, and animals talking to people, but Fire isn’t something I’ve seen associated with characters.

    Not every culture considers everything to have the same significance. Fire as the driving force of civilization is something I’ve more and more seen...

    She’s Bast but the nation they were worshipped in was conquered and they were pushed out for a while. She went on walk about, absorbed the mantle of a fading Elven goddess of dancing and sensuality as a way to look after her worshippers. Then she had a dalliance with Shar who almost devoured her. She was snapped out of that relationship, I think, by Tymora. Maybe. Forget which god rescued her. After that she became the goddess of hedonism and pleasure. There’s supposedly a group of Werecats worshipping her that hunt evil things, especially servants of Shar....

    The shift from Bast to Sekhmet and back is supposed to be so severe that it is essentially a different god even if, in many ways, they are the same entity. If I remember correctly....

    Yes, but doesn't it say you have to be surrounded by your element in order to use it as an unarmed attack. That's my concern.

    started a topic Vacuum Elemental

    Vacuum Elemental

    In 1e I made an elemental who was based around the idea of the vacuum of space. Her durance was similar to alien abduction stories and involved lots of gleaming pseudo science trappings. I was going for a touched by the Vorlons type feel.

    In 1e vacuum was not particular common but you could still find them in enough things that it was useful especially as you moved up to manifesting it.

    But it doesn’t appear to be as viable in 2e since there’s a lot of assumption of being surrounded by your element as a thing that can be done.

    Would creating it...

    The only thing I was able to come to were virtues of Office and Ambition. Because all the gods tend to have their personal plans limited and desires by the requirements of their office.

    Like Mystra isn’t allowed to just deny magic to evil casters. And the good gods in general have been unable to lobby for the removal of the Wall of the Faithless.

    replied to Errata: Scion: Hero
    Page 181 Rhiannon’s birthrights are under her knacks instead of her path effects. This is different than how the other characters organize things.

    Page 183 under Callings and Knacks

    “Your character receives two dots in one of their callings and one dot each in the other two.”

    This implies 4 dots of callings.

    I’ve brought this up before and confirmed that this is on top of the one point in calling you get as an Origin character for a total of five. Also, all the sample characters show a total of five dots of callings.
