White Wolf releasing a new game
« on: February 24, 2007, 11:11:35 AM »
White Wolf is releasing a new game (and no, this is not another thread about vampires with schlongs). It is called Scion and as far as I can tell it is about the mortal offspring of the Gods. Could be fun, anyone know more about it?

I'm putting my money on the fact that its going to be like exalted but in modern times,  but thats just my guess.

Basically yeah, but with Greek and Roman gods giving you power.

Sounds interesting, but not my cup of tea, I'd rather have Exalted in the First and Second Age.


Also...

one good thing about it.


God of War Modern

Scion: Kratos.

Actually, it's not just Greek and Roman gods...  They just comprise one of the Six pantheons (think clans).  Ragnarok, Ancient Egypt, Japan, Central America and the final grouping of West Africa, Caribbean and South America produce the other Pantheons.

Sounds interesting.  :)

Depends on how well they actually research their background material.  They've had issues in the past when they've delved into mythology (primarily in dealing with Egyptian, Near Eastern and Greek).

I have hopes for this game.
Those hopes include, for example, acces to ICBM as a 3 or 4 dot background.
5 dots should give you something better than ICBM.

Inter Continental Balistic Missile? That would be my guess, though I'm not quite sure.

Yeah. One of the few mortal-made equipment types that a god can care to use.

Sounds like an interesting idea, but if it is a part of the WoD, it'll be screwed up.

If a stand alone title, it'll be fine with my palette. I want the new Changeling book now, dammit.

It's not part of WoD...I think. I also want Changeling. Part Fairy Tail, part Horror...how could you go wrong?

I never played Changeling, but I'd like to. I think I'd make a pretty good Troll.

I once had some very ambitious ideas for a Changeling game here on E, but I came to my senses. I do think I'm perfect for the role as a Satyr though.

The closest I ever got to Changeling was the Dark Ages:Fae sourcebook.  *sigh*

Mind you, it was still a great book.

oooh there's a new Changeling coming out?  I have all of them too I think, minus one kithbook, and the kithbook on Boggins that WW denied us.

I picked up Deliria but haven't really gotten to play it.

Yes, a new Changeling is coming out for the nWoD. Woot. Yeah, I asked Conrad about it. You know, they were nearly complete in production, it just never made print because it didn't sell.

They wanted to wash their hands clean of it...until the release of what they thought would be bad. Dark Ages: Fae and Exalted: The Fair Folk.

People loved the games so much, they HAD to release it for nWoD, people were demanding it.


The back of the Promethean: The Created book is a black picture with

"Changeling"

Coming in 2007.

They've put up a bit more info on Changeling.  Looks like the new main book will be released in July at Origins in Ohio.

Also, friend picked up Scion by WW, and that's looking pretty cool too!

*chuckles* The NYT bestseller status of the Merry Gentry series certainly didn't hurt the interest in faerie as a fiction and rp concept.
