    One thought on “Scion Hero (Scion)”

    1. A month or so ago, I heard that a friend was going to run a Scion LARP. So, I said to myself, maybe I should read the book to get some background on the game and the setting? I had heard that the rules were legendarily terrible, but ticks and Rabbit Reflexes (see below) and so on aren't going to be a problem in a LARP, so how bad can it be? Surely there's plenty of useful background and setting information I can use even if the specific rules aren't going to be important, right?Well. Funny that. [...]

    2. In short, Scion: Hero is a great idea poorly executed.In Scion: Hero, you get to play a modern Hercules, wandering the earth, kicking butt and taking names while Zeus (or Ra, or Thor, or Baron Samedi, or Ameterasu, or some freaky Aztec diety, or some god from a pantheon you and your friends ported into the setting) is off fighting a war against the Titans, cthonic elder powers who predate the world and would like to see it destroyed. Your power cap is determined by your fame, but that same power [...]

    3. it was a good precursor to what Exalted would become, but it's just that, an alpha version of something better.

    4. Isn't the most amazing RPG in the world, but the setting is interesting and you can have a lot of fun making interesting characters. The game is what you make of it and a lot of the rules, stats, and mechanics are more suggestions than rules you need to follow. If you are really creative you can combine some of this stuff with 5E D&D but you really have to sit down and put a lot of work into it.

    5. This actually seems like a pretty fun game, and I kinda want to run it for some of my friends soon. Scion is, in essence, a lot like American Gods or Percy Jackson in RPG form. Various pantheons of gods are real, and they've all been given the Titans as ancient enemies to make it easier to have them work together against a common enemy. Of course, the Titans have escaped from their prisons, and it's thus up to the Scions, the children of the gods, to stop them. One thing that's interesting with [...]

    6. It's hard to review this kind of book as it's not really a novel. For those who play RPGs however, this book is a refreshing look on Mythology. Joesph Campbell would be proud.In the beginning the Titans strode creation as its masters until the young upstart gods wrenched the power from them and sealed them in the underworld. However, it was not just the Greek gods who did this, the Egyptian, Norse, Japanese and Aztec spirits also hold tales of great, primordial darkness being sealed away from cr [...]

    7. Originariamente 1 di 3 (poi di 5)Il primo di tre libri di gioco di ruolo originariamente pensati per una linea a parte della White Wolf. Il concetto è che i protagonisti sono figli di dèi di qualche antico pantheon, appena “Visitati” dai rispettivi genitori; inizialmente dispongono di facoltà limitate, e devono usarle attraverso qualcosa prima di poterle sviluppare – autonomamente – a livelli più avanzati. Buona parte del libro è dedicata alla spiegazione delle regole per questo sis [...]

    8. Great idea. But terrible execution.The game at the Hero level is why its getting 2 stars. Beyond that it dosnt quite deserve one, because once you get to Demi-God or God level, the game is broken. And i am quite used to broken games, i have played Exalted since the start of it, and had E6+ chars running around. But while they can break settings, they dont break games.Demi-Gods in this game just breaks it all and makes things un-fun. Things quickly become a headache. But the pantheons and the set [...]

    9. One of my favorite roleplaying games. I am a big fan of mythology and playing on an epic scale. This book delivers both with a side of great writing.
