Scion’s Dragon and Mythos Kickstarter is now live!

News

>>> Join us now! <<<

The ancient powers never fully went away. They wander our roads and cities, mingling with the teeming masses of humanity. Characters in Scion 2nd Edition begin as humans touched by fate, heirs to great powers and incredible destinies. In the core setting for Scion, characters discover they are the children of Gods, inheriting mantles, accomplishing great deeds, and deciding their own destinies. It’s a game about divinity and humanity, and everything in between — and now, with these two expansions, everything beyond as well. Scion: Dragon and Scion: Masks of the Mythos open new pathways, new origins, and new secrets for Scion Second Edition.

Scion: Dragon details the stories of Heirs, those chosen by Dragons to act within The World as their agents. It is the story of discovering history, subverting enemies, and espionage. Your Draconic patron seeks to embroil you in millennia-old plots and ancient grudges as shadowy manipulators. All the while, you must learn their secrets, and either embrace the Dragon’s goals for you or make your own.

Masks of the Mythos is a sourcebook for Scion: Origin and Scion: Hero. While the majority of Scion focuses on real-world mythologies and ...READ MORE

Dragon Tentacles Are Coming! [Monday Meeting Notes]

Monday Meeting, News

Tomorrow, as I write this, on Tuesday the 19th at 2pm Eastern US time our dual Kickstarter for Scion: Dragon and Scion: Masks of the Mythos arrives to bring chaos to your order, and a whole lotta options to your Scion gaming!

As I’ve mentioned before on this blog, this is a new sort of Kickstarter format for us – so it’s pretty exciting! Even though we have run multiple book reward KSs before, they were for the sort of book one and book two for a game line, not two very different books like these.

James, our Kickstarter Concierge and all-around nice guy, will be juggling providing all of our backers with updates and text section for both books and answering questions about both as well. We want folks who are backing for both books to have an exciting but not overwhelming KS, of course, and we also want to provide backers who are drawn to only one of the books to get the updates that keep them enthralled!

Not to mention a wide variety of Stretch Goal rewards!

Fortunately, we’ll have ...20 COMMENTS

Now available in PDF and print from DriveThruRPG: Cults of the Blood Gods for Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition!

When you have already experienced death, why have faith? 

If you accept that you and everyone like you is cursed by God, why cling to His word?

When you return from the other side as a blood-drinking monster, what purpose serves belief?

Kindred build and are drawn to faiths for myriad reasons. The exertion of power over a flock. Satisfying their Hunger and their Beasts. Elevation of the self. Reassurance of the possibility of redemption. A grand plan they forged or that was bestowed upon them by secret masters.

While some vampire cults span the globe hiding in plain sight, others are fringe faiths with morbid practices and ancient conspiracies lasting centuries. Others such as the incestuous Clan of Death and the malignant Church of Set — arguably the largest vampire cults of all — believe in a destiny that will enable them to impose their wills on the world of the living and the dead.

Whether for power, salvation, or transcendence, all Kindred cults wallow ...3 COMMENTS

Add Title Here [Monday Meeting Notes]

Monday Meeting, News

I didn’t forget the title – that’s a joke as we’re in the week before we start a Kickstarter, see below, and that gives me a little time to touch on topics other than letting folks know about whichever KS we’re running and how cool it is. And really, they are all cool for different reasons otherwise we wouldn’t be running their Kickstarter, right?

With that in mind, I’m going to look at something that a bunch of folks have touched on in the comments sections of our social media, this blog, for our KSs, and with our recent Survey. What it boils down to is that some of our community are concerned when projects other than for their favorite game lines move faster through the creation process and out into stores and/or DTRPG.

There’s a lot of ways this concern is expressed, and I’m going to try and cover them as best I can. Before I do, though, let me lay in the groundwork for how we do what we do.

First, we publish a bunch of game lines, as you ...34 COMMENTS

Jackie’s Dreaming: A C20 Bundle Benefiting Nicky Rea

News

As we covered in the Monday Meeting notes, long-time White Wolf contributor Jackie Cassada passed due to COVID-19 complications recently.

Her partner and collaborator of 57 years, Nicky Rea, also caught COVID but survived with lasting complications, and is facing tremendous medical bills, and may soon become homeless.

The pair were perhaps best well-known for their contributions to the Changeling line, so we’ve partnered with Bundle of Holding to offer Jackie’s Dreaming: a Changeling20 Bundle. All proceeds go to Nicky.

Thank you.
