Live By The Blade (A Jumpstart for Scion: Dragon)

Selected Option:

An agent of Kazim-Azizi has acquired an ancient relic — the Sword of Damocles — and intends to bring it to the History Gorger’s lair and add it to the Dragon’s menu. 

A group of Heirs (the player characters) have the skills and talents necessary to steal the weapon back, and keep it in The World a little longer. Kazim-Azizi’s agent is going where even Scions fear to tread: to the island of Lemuria, where the light of forgotten stars shines on long-lost soldiers and missing wonders. Allies and enemies aren’t always what they seem, and there’s always room for a double-cross. 

In this jumpstart, the characters must track down the Sword of Damocles and retrieve it before the Maw of Lethe devours the weapon, but the Dragon’s Heirs have plans of their own.

This jumpstart adventure includes everything you need to play a full game of Scion: Dragon.

  • A complete story designed to be played in one long session or over the course of several sessions.
  • Five ready-to-play Dragon characters.
  • Condensed Storypath core rules to help facilitate Storyguides running the game.

Scion DragonScion Second Edition: Dragon

You have been chosen by a Dragon, gifted with magic and the incredible ability to shape shift into one of their terrible and awesome forms. In a World of myth, yours has been rewritten time and again, and yet Dragons remember all truths. You are an agent in an ancient war, working behind the lines and preparing for a battle for the fate of The World.

Discover the Truth. Find yourself. Make your own destiny.

Scion: Dragon details the stories of Heirs, those chosen by Dragons to act within The World as their agents. It is the story of discovering history, subverting enemies, and espionage. Your Draconic patron seeks to embroil you in millennia old plots and ancient grudges as shadowy manipulators. All the while, you must learn their secrets, and either embrace the Dragon’s goals for you or make your own. 

The Scion: Dragon is a standalone game in the World of Scion, and is meant for use with Scion: Origin. Inside, you will find:

  • Character creation system for Heirs; those chosen by Dragons to enact their plots in The World.
  • Knacks, Spells, and all the draconic magic wielded by Heirs, powered by the Storypath System.
  • Six Flights: Draq, Joka, Lindwurm, Long, Naga, and Serpent Dragons, all suitable for patronage of your Heirs.

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.
