Scion: Car Competition


Automobiles are entrenched in The World’s culture, and they’ve changed travel forever. The Gods are not immune to the changing culture, and many Scions have incorporated it into their legends, pushing themselves to interact creatively with vehicles. The Scions of Hephaestus had a particular attraction to vehicles, often modifying them beyond the human capability for speed or maneuverability.

These and other interested Scions often come together for competitions and test racing or craftmanship. Car culture is so popular with certain Scions that they developed a game based on them. The game is sometimes called “The Autocracy,” which a few Scions think is a hilarious pun, while others consider the joke to be in poor taste. Most just call it “the competition.”

The competition consists of multiple ways for Scions to play with vehicles when they are together and an opportunity to tell legendary tales of their feats. Powerlift a car in the middle of a battle and use it like a baseball bat? Throw a truck a mile to take out an enemy running away? Did you trick out a motorcycle to make it a Relic? How are those driving skills?

All of these are ways in which Scions try to outdo each other. Some prefer the heat of battle for their moment of glory, some choose to express themselves through nuanced storytelling in their cars’ design, others weave tales of impressive feats or clever uses of vehicles, and still others hone their skills of repairing or modifying the internal machines and external bodywork. Creativity, originality, and innovation are the central ideas of the competition.

Scion Origin Phone PDFScion Second Edition Book One: Origin (Phone Version)

You are the child of a God, born to the magic of yesterday and the promise of tomorrow. You live in a World of myth, where every ancient story is true. Your ancient enemies, the Titans, stir in their prison beneath the lands of the dead. Their spawn issues forth from lands of myth, and the specter of war falls across the heavens. In this age of turmoil, you seize your birthrights and feel the call of your blood.

Find your destiny. Live the myth. Embrace your Fate.

Scion is a game about Gods and humanity, and everything in between. It’s a game about mythic Deeds and the reasons people talk about those mythic Deeds. Scion: Origin details the Scions when they’re still (mostly) human, before the Visitation that introduces them to the divine World — they’re exceptional humans, perhaps, blessed with luck and skill or cursed with ill fortune and strange trials in their lives, but humans nonetheless.

This book includes:

  • The core rules and character-creation information for Scion Second Edition, powered by the Storypath system.
  • An in-depth look at the basic setting of Scion (called the World).
  • A list of the major players — the Gods, Titans, and Legendary creatures that comprise the setting.
  • Storyguide advice on running games for pre-Visitation Scions.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
