In the annals of the Greek myths one of the earliest stories tells of a rebellion in the Heavens; Of how one god rose up to strike down his Titan father and free his siblings from confinement within his very stomach. He succeeded and imprisoned their primordial forerunners, leaving them to do what they pleased and live on in the legends of heroes and countries. Many see these are stories. Flights of fancy from an era where people searched for answers to that which they could not explain. The gods of old are just stories after all, right? Such is not the case. Not only did these mystical figures and their stories come to pass but one detail is forgotten by many. The slew of freed gods did not all fall in line with the brother that saved them. Others went across the land and sees, finding their own place in the world and creating their own followings. The Aztecs. The Norse. The Japanese and Chinese. The Voodoo. The Irish. The Egyptian. The Hindu. While they all claim their own origins all of them originated from the same place in the beginning yet forged their own legacies as the ages passed on. Each were distrusting of the other, always ready to go at each other's throats were the threat of the Titans escaping their imprisonment not such a dire threat. Mutually assured destruction kept them in each other's good graces -- for the most parts. As the ages passed and the faith of their followers dwindled many began to take human guises, fulfilling their divine role in their own way among mortals. From time to time one -- whether from simply seeking comfort or pleasure or simply knowing the result -- a godly being in disguise would couple with a mortal and create something chronicled of numerous times in the Greek epics - a Scion. A mortal with divine blood, able to do things beyond any mundane human. None are born knowing what they are nor are they told until well into their teens. Upon this Visitation by their godly parent -- or a supernatural representative -- a Scion is given a new purpose in the world. The Titans themselves are held back from destroying the gods and the world of mortals but their creations, the Titanspawn, seek to ravage both. The Gods themselves are limited in their ability to interfere in mortal affairs but often the deities of various pantheons will group their children together to help battle the Titan threat and begin their legend as a modern hero. Despite these forces banding together there is still a darkness on the horizon. A destined battle for everything looms on the horizon and it's set upon the shoulders of those willing to stand up for their world to save all from the Titan's forthcoming wrath. ------------------ Scion is a tabletop game game created by White Wolf and set in a world where the children of gods duke it out against the myths of old to keep the world safe. The game puts a party of scions born of various gods and pantheons together, creating a party of exceptional and sometimes clashing individuals as they try to figure out the gifts they have been granted and how best to use them. I have yet to decide whether this will be a chat or forum based RP though I will go over those who join to check their preferences. While this is base on an often combat focused tabletop game I will be putting a lot more emphasis on roleplaying and how a character reacts in battle rather than a straight up dice duel though rolling will still be a bit part of this as randomness of whether someone succeeds or fails creates for interesting situations to interact in and respond to. The books contain information on the various gods and their favored powers and stats but if you have a god not listed that you'd like to be a scion of them approach me and such a thing can be generated. Note that 'gods' are very definite in the Scion world. Powerful supernatural entities are often not gods and thus do not sire scions.
