Scion RPG 2nd Edition Review – Part One – Scion: Origin

Scion RPG 2nd Edition Review – Part One – Scion: Origin 

Scion is an urban fantasy roleplaying game (RPG) of a very particular sort and one that’s likely to appeal to fans of fantasy fiction.

I should note that a whole team of people worked on this book, from writers to artists and editors. It’s not clear who wrote on which section, however. So, where I’ve felt the need to mention the writers by a name, I’ve credited Chris Spivey himself, as the mastermind of the book. My apologies to […]
