[Kickstarter] Scion 2nd Edition surpassed $310,000


While I was never the biggest Storyteller system supporter I have played (mostly OWoD Hunter thanks to the X-Box games) and find that in the right climate the system is very enjoyable.  Scion has been an offshoot that I have wanted to play in since I first learned of it thanks to a series of reviews done by Game Geeks.  Unfortunately the few opportunities I have had met little success (mainly at cons where as an alt. player I got bumped when all the players showed). That said, while I backed at the $20.00 level for the pdfs I see little hope in finally playing ... however, this stretch goal opens up an entire world to the Storyteller system that has been locked away until now.  From the backer update:
Having passed $310,000, we will create a Community Content section on DTRPG.com that will allow folks who adhere to our standards' guide to create and post their own Scion 2e material on a royalty basis. We will also open Scion 2e to licensed publishing with other companies. Setting up these programs is something we have never done before, so it will take work to figure out the details, but we believe Scion will become all the richer a game line with these programs in place.

That's right, following in the coat tails of Wizard's Dungeon Master's Guild, and the upcoming AGE, and Cortex Community Sections a licensed ST setting will be open to the community for legal content creation and profit.  In my opinion Scion is the best ST setting for this due to its mythological background and high degree of interchangeable playstyles. 
 
With this in mind I may have to venture into the world of Roll20 to get hands on with a setting I've wanted in on for years.

The Robathen's Coin Parts 1 -3

A long time ago I released a short story on drivethrufiction called "The Rabathen's Coin - An Arame Tale" that was meant to be the start of a series staring a mysterious thief named Arame.  Well, five years later and I have sold maybe six copies.  With that in mind I figured I might as well break it up into two or three parts and post in on the blog.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.



I.
The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

I am starting to see a theme evolving here ... and it wasn't even planned.  Enjoy, and feedback is always welcomed!


Genius Loci's Outlook for Feb/March 2016

Gate File 001 - First Approach
This is the next and the big project for the month of February for my Patreon and the one I want to push for public release in March/April.  The Gate File is being developed for 5th Edition SRD and will incorporate Modern rules and make suggestions as to that fact.















The Smoke Giant's Heir
A second 5th Edition SRD release, The Smoke Giant's Heir was originally meant to be published last July but ran into a number of difficulties including lost maps, Scribus and libre files becoming corrupted due to system failures as my tower died a slow and horrible death.  The Text is written out for this one but one map still needs to be redrawn and the layout needs to be put through Serif now that I have it back.


More Fantasy AgeI don't know yet what I want to do exactly but I want to start doing a fan version of my favorite MMO using Green Ronin's Fantasy Age system.  Obviously this will be a "serial numbers filed off" deal for the possibility …
