Scion and Trinity Continuum take new direction under Storypath
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.
