    I wonder what things like video games and movies look like in this world. Is it just assumed that most larger than life heroes (Lara Croft, Indiana Jones, etc) are Scions?

    I sadly imagine that there's a negative impact on science fiction. So much SF is based on imagining more exciting worlds, but seems like the Scion world is pretty full of adventure and wonder on it's own. Would things like Star Wars, Star Trek, or Doctor Who be replaced by something more grounded in Mythic Reality? Maybe the Enterprise is an actual ship traveling between the various godly realms and whatnot?...

    Reading resources

    So there's obviously lots of fun fiction out there about the gods and other myths. But what resources do people like to use for information about the myths themselves, non-fiction? Any particular websites to give some more info, or any books people like? Most of my knowledge is limited to Greek/Roman mythology and some Norse and Egyptian stuff.

    Every time I read about Scion, I can't help but think about the Saints from the Saint's Row videogame series (mostly from before SR4, but including Gat out of Hell). Start as small time hustlers and criminals, get more and more famous as time goes on, eventually becoming international celebrities making tons of money, still doing the same kind of criminal stuff (Fatebinding?) and eventually having to travel to Hell, rescue one of their members, saving Santa Claus, etc.

    Does anyone else get this vibe from those games?

    Other supernatural creatures

    Ok so I know that all myths are true and there are a plethora of various mythic creatures running around. However, I was curious about non-mythic stuff out there, like vampires, werewolves, fae or changelings, demons, angels, etc. Is there a place for them in this kind of universe? Also, are regular humans able to do magic, maybe something similar to Mage, Dresden, or Witchcraft? Do human-only magical organizations exist?

    Also, how many scions are supposed to be out there?

  • Wait a minute. If the Ministry joining the Anarchs leads to them being more unified and hierarchical, could they eventually evolve into a sort-of-Sabbat (mysticism, packs, "freedom") while yet another faction become the anarchs of the Anarchs? So end of the day we would have Camarilla, Sabbat (maybe?), the Ministry Anarchs, and the anarch Anarchs?

  • I think it's important that these elders couldn't defend themselves. A central theme of VtM (in my mind at least) is that vampires, for all their pretentions, are parasites and monsters, not the lords of humanity. Sure individually they are powerful, almost godlike, but there are more humans, humans have better technology, and when their attention is turned to vampires the Kiddos of Caine better keep it cool or they will have some problems. So I like the fact that in spite of the huge power of the Inner Circle and the leadership of the Giovanni, they were still vulnerable to a coordinated strike...
