the scion

anonymous asked:

Is Jane Austen read in Scion, or is her work banned? Also, what is Sim Warden's career?

Scion has done its best to seize or destroy literature from pre-Scion days, as they want people to forget that time. Copies of certain classic novels do exist, but only in the archives of certain libraries. They’ve also been edited to remove any trace of religion, spirits, or the supernatural. Many of them ended up in the Old Library at Sheol I, which is how Warden was able to read Frankenstein in The Bone Season

In Austen’s case, an edited Pride and Prejudice might be hanging around in an archive somewhere, but something like Northanger Abbey would have been burned. 

Sim Warden has had several careers, but Musician is his calling.

OKAY. LISTEN UP TABLE TOP RPG FANS

SO. THERE IS THIS GAME CALLED SCION. ITS PUBLISHED BY WHITE WOLF. THAT IS ALREADY A POSITIVE. 
THE PREMISE IS THAT YOU ARE CHILDREN OF THE GODS TRYING TO SAVE THE WORLD. 
THINK PERCY JACKSON MEETS AMERICAN GODS.

I KNOW WHAT YOU’RE THINKING. 

WOW. WHAT PANTHEONS? 

ALL OF THEM. 

  • Greek 
  • Egyptian
  • Hindu 
  • Chinese 
  • Japanese 
  • Norse
  • Aztec 
  • Vodou 
  • Irish 
  • Gaulish 
  • Persian

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!!!! 

What really caught my attention was the more “modern” gods that represent folk lore or cultural phenomenons. These are the crazy ones. 

EUROPEAN CONCEPTS! 


That’s right! Your dad could have fucked a guillotine to make you! Or your daddy can actually be the Marx ideal workforce! 

BUT IT GETS EVEN BETTER! 

There are the Americana folklore characters! 

Give me one good reason why you shouldn’t be playing a game where you play the spawn of Paul Bunyan 

THAT’S FUCKING RIGHT. LUMBER DADDY. 

or. or. or. or. or. 

THIS IS THE CHARACTER YOU’VE BEEN WAITING TO PLAY ALL YOUR LIFE.

Seahawks on Active Deployment

I’m very proud to say that the 99th Aleutian Seahawks are now sitting in one of GW Wolverhampton’s cabinets! With the addition of the command net vox and a second Tempestor, all squads are now complete and ready for display - equipped a bit oddly, perhaps, but ready nonetheless.

No small amount of thanks to @a-40k-author for making these gits popular enough for me to get around to painting them in the first place. Good luck with your own Stormtroopers, and Ave Imperator!
