I've got it.  It's cool, but the nature of Epic Attributes means that you can expect a disproportionate focus on Epic Dexterity from most PC groups.

I've picked up the rulebook, but my local group isn't looking to play it right now. I'm giving it a try on RPOL and see how it goes.

I've been wanting to host a Scion game ever since the game came out and I actually read it. It originally looked stupid, but after reading, it's quite awesome.


Or hell, I'd like to play in one. ^.^

You weren't the one who didn't have room for Zara by any chance, were you?

I don't think so. The one I'm in is (Scion) Vengeance and Rebirth, and the GM is Weaver of Fate. I'm just waiting to get my character (Scion of Heimdall) approved. We're still at the character generation stage. Looks like 3 are already done.

Ah, ha!  So you're not the GM, but rather, the one who got to him/her first!  *Plots bloody vengence.*  :P 

Kidding.  Hope you have fun.

If its any consolation, I didn't get into the first game I'd planned to either. And I see another one starting over there too.

Thats the most recent one I can see. Not a game starting, but it looks like enough interest to get one going.

Agreed, but I'm not going to run it. Someone else will have to GM.

I certainly would not mind playing either.  I've just recently begun flipping through Scion and I quite like what I've seen.  It does seem like there's quite a bit of general interest going, we should be able to get a game started without too much trouble, if someone decides that they'd like to GM.

If no one else stands up soon... 

Hmm...  If I can squeeze in a tad bit of research, would people be interested in a small, fictional African nation where a band of Scions are organizing a revolution against the dictator?  Not sure if the dictator is native or a remnant of Aparthide(sp?) but (just to pick at some of my own emotional scabs) another major villain will be the countries church of england archbishop who'se happily imposing western mores on the place. 

Is that interesting?  Or not cosmopolitan enough for you guys?  We could set something similar in South America or some other region where the military wasn't big enough to wipe out scion rebels with a cruise missile.  Likewise, the protagonists could be trying to reassert traditional African ruler ship, democracy, or set themselves up as more benevolent kings.

I would actually like that alot. Throw in a few shady goverment officials from Western democracies that are famous for supporting dictators, and some greedy multinational corporations and I'll be there.  :)

Not to put too fine a point on it, Muse...but if you don't have time (or whatever the problem is) to run your other games, why would this one be different?

Well, if my roommates don't leave me alone to run at the night's I asked them too, then I won't.  other than that, though, I hope to have time because I've sawed off so many other of my games.

I'm bringing my Exalted game over here from Rpol, so if anyone would like to hop aboard... 

Meanwhile, for Scion: 


In 1915 (or thereabouts) the British granted self rule (dominion) status to Natal. When the Union of South Africa was formed Natal petitioned not be included and the British agreed.

None the less Natal and South Africa were allies. and shared similar systems. 

The nation remained under Afrikaner rule 'til, in 1988, three half-brothers of Zulu ethnicity lead a revolution against Afrikaner rule.  One, who had taken the name Shaka, seized the title of president for life.  Another offered no challenge to his half brother's power, but studied and remained as an advisor.  The third returned to the countryside, taking up the ways of the bandit-rebel again as Shaka's rule became oppressive. 

The country is now inhabited by 30% Zulu, who are the military and political power, landlords in the countriside, technicians and soldiers in the citties. 

10% Afrikaner, who control a disproportionate amount of the wealth, trade, and technology. 

40% Bantu, who are forced to remain in the peasent class. 

15% Swazi, also downtrodden, but some are slowly clawing their way out of the countriside to become an underclass in the citties through connections in Swaziland. 

5% assorted immigrants, including a substantial number of affluent Indians.
