Scion and Trinity Continuum take new direction under Storypath

Scion, Trinity Continuum

Working together on the Storypath system — the shared Onyx Path in-house dice system — Scion developer Neall Raemonn Price and Trinity Continuum lead developer Ian A. A. Watson came to a startling realization.

“As we worked on the themes of the different games, we realized there was more than a shared power scale,” Price said. “Scion‘s treatment of gods as modern celebrities synchronizes perfectly with Aberrant‘s treatment of superheroes in reality culture, while Æon‘s sense of hope in a post-cataclysm future strikes similar chords with one of Scion’s alternate settings.”

Accordingly, Onyx Path is proud to present the title of the newly-combined setting: The Divinity Continuum: Psion.

“Unlike other proposed crossover properties, like Exalted vs. the World of Darkness, we realized that combining Scion and the Trinity Continuum was both a good idea and feasible due to IP ownership,” Watson said. “The Storypath system was ultimately conceived as a way to represent modern mythology. But if we really wanted to truly explore everything that genre had to offer, we could only do that by combining both lines into a single, cohesive whole.”

“Also, each line has a core and three main sub-lines, which is pretty convenient, and will save us a lot of time,” agreed Price. “We’re very excited for the new directions and opportunities offered by combining our gamelines into one humongous, harmonious book,” Price said.

“And think of how big that Kickstarter’s going to be,” added Watson.

Onyx Path founder Rich Thomas, in a statement, claimed that Price had been fired in 2012.

      I don’t know what you’re talking about. This is totally 100% legit. I even timed this announcement to coincide with N-Day (though we ran a few days late waiting for the hip new logo to come in).

    Rich’s mistake was firing Neil only once. You gotta fire him at *least* three times before it takes.

    I always have to ask on anything posted on April 1st, but is this part of April Fools?

    I know you are joking but I’m totally going to run a Scion vs Aberrant game some day

    I could almost get behind this idea. There really is a lot of similarity between the two.

      That’s what makes it a good April Fool’s joke.

    This right here:

    “Unlike other proposed crossover properties, like Exalted vs. the World of Darkness, we realized that combining Scion and the Trinity Continuum was both a good idea and feasible due to IP ownership”

    The definition of my own personal terror.

    Nope, nope. Nope nope nopety nope.

    Nope.

    Sweet Christ-on-a-bike, if you’d mentioned Novas + Aeon few times in their my head, quite probably, would’ve gone splodey.

    Well played.

    Is Exalted vs. the World of Darkness still planned?

    • Ian A. A. Watson
      April 3, 2016 at 9:05 am

      Planned in the sense that there are people — notably the Exalted team — who’d like to do it? Yes.

      Planned in the sense that it’s on the production schedule? No.

        I hope it makes it there! A lot of fans would like to see what you come up with.
