      More I was going on memory and forgot; I thought he'd be mentioned later.

        You know, the way they keep blowing through the stretch goals, I wonder if it'd be feasible to have making the Companions be print books as a stretch goal?



        What is tolerance? It is the consequence of humanity. We are all formed of frailty and error; let us pardon reciprocally each other's folly. That is the first law of nature.

            There is a POD option.

              I’m happy 😊. There’s a whole section in Chapter One of Masks of the Mythos about how the Mythos relates to more traditional Scions (and Titans).

                Great chapter by the way. I am enjoying a lot both books, they open Scion to another entire concept, one that fits better to my games, that is there is a real true behind tall the true from the myths.

                Dragons remember the World as it was before gods and humans, and Mythos are just out of universe stuff.

                In a certain way Mythos fluffy can give another view to “all myths are true”, reality is no more than a dream of a chaotic mind, and gods can shape this dreams, changing the past as it goes.

                  I'm really looking forward to the mythos callings. Cosmos may be a perfect fit for a character I'm building for an upcoming campaign.

                    Hmmm... we were previously told that Arcane Calculus was the PSP, but only some of them have it (and there are other new Purviews like Hibernation, Transference, and weirdly "Dreams" [what would that cover that Darkness doesn't?])... so is there an additional PSP all Mythos Scions have access to?

                    Also perplexed how the Cosmos purview exists and Azathoth doesn't have it.

                      Could you point where in PDF is this quote? I cannot find it in Preview 1 of MotM... I would like to point this to my 'sceptical to Mythos in Scion' players, to encourage my later chronicle idea.

                        Yeah that first section of mythos has turned me off to it. I think I am just going to stick with dragon

                          We in the Mythos Dreams are a really big deal, but have no special association with Darkness. Really dreams in Mythos deserve their own perview simple by virtue of them needing to be able to do so much more and the degree of importance they play.

                            My two new Scion series ideas, based on Kickstarter materials…

                            Enemy Within - Hero to Demigod game ( possible God ) – Using Scion Dragon
                            Myth Level: Heroic ( to Bronze, I suppose? )
                            Espionage/secrets game. PCs are Heroes in Pantheons. Lately, they uncover literal Ancient Reptilian Conspiracy – with biggest Dragons at the reign of it. All the Titanomachy conflicts between Gods and Titans are just next machinations of Dragons. And Big Lizards are just to sweep the Gods and Titans alike, once and for all…
                            Option: If Theros of Atlantis are used in game, they bring news to modern Pantheons about return of ancient enemy – Dragons – that once defeated Atlanteans.
                            Ending: PCs build coalition of Pantheons to stop Great Wyrms from return to World en masse – and defeat Dragons overloads?
                            Twist: ???
                            Problem: ‘Ancient Reptilian Conspiracy’ maybe hard too pull realisable – as with any Ancient Conspiracy Trope. Especially, with Gods level Dragons planning it.
                            Inspirations: ( Reptilians Conspiracy Media? ), V (2009 TV series)

                            Horror from Outer Space - Hero to Demigod game ( possible God ) – Using Scion Dragon
                            Myth Level: Heroic ( to /very dark/ Silver, I suppose? )
                            Pulpish horror game – so called Lovecraft Lite. PCs are Heroes in Pantheons. Lately, they uncover that Great Old Ones are coming! PCs need to build Pantheons coalition to beat the literal Horrors from Outer Space…
                            Option: If Theros of Atlantis are used in game, they bring news to modern Pantheons about return of ancient enemy – Great Old Ones – that once nearly wiped out Atlanteans and whole life on Earth.
                            Ending: PCs with coalition of Pantheons stops Old Ones more and more faster invasion on the World?
                            Twist: ???
                            Problem: Starts maybe as a bit pulpish horror – with finding cultists, then Lesser Servants, etc. But can come to truly apocalyptic proportions – with literal End of the World finale. Think of Call of Cthulhu RPG where PCs are Scion Heroes…
                            Inspirations: ( Cthulhu Mythos media – especially, more action oriented ), Robert E. Howard's Conan stories and its Hyborian setting are tangentally connected to the Mythos, as are a number of his other works (Kull of Atlantis, Bran Mac Morn, etc.) – all about Heroes beating ancient horrors, many time literally taken from Mythos.

                              Darkness is going to need a substantive rewrite then.

                                Darkness has only ever had very weak power over dreams. It's not like massive overlap doesn't happen in all of the previews. You can already use any boon from any perview is you can argue how it works with the desired perview.
