I don't find Scion all that bad. I've run plenty of games of it, and while it does need some rules tweaks in places, there's nothing a decent GM can't work around. I played a tabletop campaign from start up to Legend 8 demigods, and we ran into very few problems.

I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with Scion 2.0 :)

Yeah so am I but then again I am still waiting on Exalted and was not part of the Kickstarter. :(

I think I may also do something related to this - Ideally playing, but I am also considering running something, but need victims players, so you guys have another ST when the rules eventually come out.

Oh man...

I've been running this with my meat-space crew for about 4 sessions between my CPA exams.    It is such a blast to run as a GM.

I'll also probably try and con Kyrsa into resuming our Exalted solo.   I've been a bad boy on that front.   >_>

It's time for me to see if I still have that spreadsheet, and what I need to update. Or contact one of the ... two people I shared it with and update that.

Should this group still be  looking for others i'd be interested in giving it a crack.

I think we'll need a little time to digest the new rules before we start working on game ideas. I'd like to try a fight or two under the new rules to see how that works first. That does seem to be one of the larger changes.

Yeah, I'd like to get maybe a week or so to really sink my mind into the content before trying to jump into things. That said, a lot of the stuff will simply be me learning to do it for the first time, since my previous experiences with Exalted were almost entirely absent combat and I am never a mechanically inclined sort of person to begin with.

The Ex3 rules are relatively straightforward, actually, except for the amazingly stupid names. Well, and the amazingly ugly art. First time I see a non-free PDF where I have to actively disregard the art, because man, is that ugly >:)!
Back to combat, if they had named "withering attacks" as "beats" or simply "preparation actions", it would have been much easier to digest, and mostly make sense.

I don't find Scion all that bad. I've run plenty of games of it, and while it does need some rules tweaks in places, there's nothing a decent GM can't work around. I played a tabletop campaign from start up to Legend 8 demigods, and we ran into very few problems.
Then you're either a much better GM than me, much less mechanically inclined, had amazing luck with your players, or a combination of those.
I'm going to hope you're simply a much better GM than me, because that would be the best for any game we play :P!

Yeah seriously, at least one artwork blatantly plagarizes other art pieces, and there is a lot of poser art that looks like they got some unpaid interns to do it. I didn't pay for an expanded art budget if it meant they just used poser.

*chuckles* Might be a bit of each. The group I was playing with, we'd all been playing together for years, over a dozen different games, so we're pretty used to each other's ways by then, and rotated amongst 3 GMs, so we all got to play. We ran a sort of episodic format, ranging from a couple of sessions to a couple of months per story.

Bouncing between devising a setting in the Scavenger Lands to torment give for those who would play with me and actually reading rules. They seem so much less difficult to read through than 2e. I am happy.  :D

Scavanger Lands is always a good place to start I reckon :)

They do have a certain charm to them, though I am kind of sad that I won't get to play out the Realm's way of stomping on satrapies... at least, not initially. That said, anyone who wants to make a kingdom might be able to with much more ease than you'd expect anywhere else.

There's quite a bit of typo and typography errors, plus some text outright missing or being hidden under images. We'll be getting the fully finished copy later. This is just the beta to the release, so to speak. 95% finished aside from bugs and fine tuning.

It is, however, good enough to work with. I already got an idea for a sorcerer/snake stylist cheat, gambler, and general person of ill repute.

This wasn't supposed to be "the beta to the release." This was supposed to be everything but the final cover, and if there were any errors they were supposed to be so small that they'd only be caught by having thousands of people looking.

Also, the quality of the art (plagiarism issues aside) is depressing. There's good stuff, but it's the laughably awful stuff that stands out.

How long have we been waiting? This is the best they could do? I want my money back, or at least I want to downgrade to PDF-only.
