Titanomachy (A Collection of Threats for Scion Second Edition)
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
by Moros F. H. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/29/2020 17:59:31

The Knacks, Relics, Guides, and antagonists are good and are welcome additions to Scion. However the lore and Creatures are overall bad. The Creatures are not built in any way like how the rules for building one is described in Hero, the lore in general with the exceptions of the Kami, Orisha, and Deva are often poorly written, nonsensical and often arbitarly ignore mythology for conflict that is often more boring or lesser then the conflict already present in the source mytholog. The biggest example being Nidhogg who for some unfathomable reason has himself but spelled properly(Nidhoggr) as his rival when he already had a clear cut rival in the mythology: the eagle at the top Yggdrasil, a rivalry forged on constant insults they send to each other. Which is replaced by a riverly with his properly spelled self over who's the real Nidhoggr? Worst of all Nidhogg's write up contradicts the devaloper's assurance that Scion Dragon would not be treated as canon by the rest of the gameline, except Nidhoggr is a full Dragon in the Scion Dragon sense. In general the lore feels like the worst parts of 1e's lore, nonsensical changes that add nothing at best and at worst are activly worse then the conflict already present in the source material which is the worst kind of change

Nemetondevos: Revised

If you are playing a game featuring the Nemetondevos, you should absolutly get this. I can't empthize how much I prefer this to the official version, it's so much more accurate and fun, with a PSP that doesn't have an innate power that's partly useless or a motif that can be mechanicaly removed. The rewrites for the gods are so much more intresting, I love Ceronnus's write up empthathizing he's a god of commerce and trade not the wilderness just to name one. I also like how much the writer tries to inform about the cultures that the pantheon comes from, about how it lived and how it functioned, which is definatly helpful for running a game that focuses on the Nemetondevos. All in all this is a must have no question

Mysteries of the World: The Scion Second Edition Companion
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing

This is probobly the best Scion 2e book so far. The Loa and Yazata are fantastic, and the new Purview rules are amazing and I can't wait to use them. The crafting expansion is also real great, I especially love the amplification rules. The only issue is the Nemetondevos, they are super inaccurate and seem to be based solely on appealing to pop culture steriotypes rather then the actual history, and they suffer heavily for it in my opinion. But everything else makes up for that and more. I've been playing as a Yazata Scion of Atar and it's been awesome. Heavily recemend this, just keep in mind what i said about the Nemetondevos.

the setting is great, especialy the Numirians. "crafting is a form of worship" is an awesome idea that more games should use.

Supernatural Path: Vigilante

The idea of a non-divine mortal gaining Legend feels rather redundant considering the Wolf Warriors exist and fulfill that same role and also the same role of being ardent followers of a worthy cause.

Scion Second Edition Book One: Origin
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing

I love the setting, especically since Scion now actually has a setting for once. I love that the devalopers have actually done their research and have hired a more diverse team of writers who can help give a more accurate description of each religon. I love how much freedom the game system gives you in creating what you want, like how I was able to easily make a talking eagle as a PC thanks to the condition rule, I love the air of mystery of Origin tier(even if I do personally prefer the more epic and magical feel of Hero tier). The editing could definitely be better, there was some important stuff here and there I missed initely due to the text not giving it much attention or was vague. Still a must buy though for lovers of urban fantasy, mythology and more systems that encourage you to make your own ideas!
