    What a fantastic interview! Full disclosure, Scion is my all time second favorite game (just after Werewolf: The Apocalypse), so I may not be neutral. That said, i feel like this was your best one yet. Kudos to Dixie for masterfully steering the conversation throughout and to Neil whose well thought-out answers managed to express complex ideas in ways that were both accessible and inspiring.

    Thank you everyone.

    Also Thor. Oh my GOD, Thor. Pure gold!

    “No!” – Thor, God of Thunder.

    Just a thought – but Scion having fewer degrees of Scale of “Godlike” than Aberrant, fits when you note the difference between how Narrative Scale works between the two games. In Trinity Continuum a Scale difference of 3 is going to give you a x4 multiplier to damage or successes. In Scion it gives you x10, and a Scale difference of 4 jumps to x100, while Trinity Continuum just goes the next notch up to x5.

    So you do becoming “godlike” at lower number Scale in Scion bares out in the rules – it’s not just a difference of what constitutes “godlike”. Now this doesn’t impact DRAMATIC Scale, but that naturally fits the ability of Heroes to stand up to the Gods being an important component in Scion.
