While it is well-known that not every God is as potent as Zeus (and not every Goddess as brave as Isis), even the Gods themselves tend to“forget” their long-lost cousins and great-aunts twice-removed on the other side of the family. Among the immortals, the uber-powerful feel there are some deities best left off Junior’s wedding invitation, ignored at holidays, or obscured deep in a poorly updated Wikipedia page.
In Extras (Supplemental Yet Can Be Useful On Occasion Scions), a select number of these rare Gods, Goddesses, and their Scions have been thrown under the spotlight. From the oft-overlooked Queen of the Porcelain Throne to a brave-but-curious Scion who loves the outdoors, discover how the pantheons feel about these add-ons and their place in the War against the Titans.
This book is compatible with Scion: Hero. It includes:
10 playable Scion extras from 6 pantheons
Deadpan humor. Because RPGs are dead, ya know?
Song lyrics for Sci, Scion Style. We expect to see a fan video.
Easter eggs! Not the literal kind. That’d be too messy. The “Oooo…Fans might want to…” kind.
HAPPY APRIL FOOL’S!
Today, I am thrilled to announce that I am the Firefly brand manager for Margaret Weis Productions. I will also be writing for the line, too! Margaret Weis has been a joy to work with and I have a fantastic team filled with very, very talented people.
The Firefly license, which encompasses the hit Fox television series by Joss Whedon, will incorporate role-playing games and supplements so you can game in the ‘Verse.
More news to come!
Today, I am pleased to announce that both New Hero Volume 1 and The Lion and the Aardvark, Aesop’s Modern Fables are available for purchase in the US.
The first anthology includes a detective noir story titled “Fangs and Formaldehyde” about a vampire named Atlas who will die if he gets too emotional. “Bored to Fu,” a modern-day fable about a mouse, a dragon, and productivity, is featured in the second collection.
You can buy both books, in print or digital, direct from the Stone Skin Press website. If you have questions about other places to purchase them, drop the publisher a line.
I hope you enjoy these stories! They were a lot of fun to write!
A-hem. I am part of a Kickstarter for a “hack” guide to Cortex Plus. My essay, titled “Roleplay Like You’re On TV” pares down the character concept into basic building blocks so you can play ANY television character from ANY genre and ANY show.
As of this moment, it’s already fifty percent funded — so join us! And please . . . grab those convention spots where one of us will GM a game IN PERSON for you!
The Cortex Plus Hacker’s Guide is a collection of articles and essays for use with either Cortex Plus Drama (as seen in the Smallville Roleplaying Game) or Cortex Plus Action (as seen in the Leverage Roleplaying Game.) In order to best take advantage of the guide, you’ll want to own either or both of these games, though many articles are neutral to whichever Cortex Plus game you favor. — SOURCE: Margaret Weis Productions: Cortex Plus Hacker’s Guide on Kickstarter.
On the Kickstarter page, you’ll find a video and details about the rewards. For more information, read about the Cortex Plus Kickstarter on FlamesRising.com.
