PDF + Hardcover, Standard Color Book

You are the child of a God, born to the magic of yesterday and the promise of tomorrow. You live in a World of myth, where every ancient story is true. Your ancient enemies, the Titans, stir in their prison beneath the lands of the dead. Their spawn issues forth from lands of myth, and the specter of war falls across the heavens. In this age of turmoil, you seize your birthrights and feel the call of your blood.

Find your destiny. Live the myth. Embrace your Fate.

Scion is a game about Gods and humanity, and everything in between. It’s a game about mythic Deeds and the reasons people talk about those mythic Deeds. Scion: Origin details the Scions when they’re still (mostly) human, before the Visitation that introduces them to the divine World — they’re exceptional humans, perhaps, blessed with luck and skill or cursed with ill fortune and strange trials in their lives, but humans nonetheless.

This book includes:

  • The core rules and character-creation information for Scion Second Edition, powered by the Storypath system.
  • An in-depth look at the basic setting of Scion (called the World).
  • A list of the major players — the Gods, Titans, and Legendary creatures that comprise the setting.
  • Storyguide advice on running games for pre-Visitation Scions.

Is the PDF or the book updated with errata from a couple years ago? I see a few people asking and no answers...

Hello! I'm looking to purchase the PDF and Hardcover of both Origins and Hero, but need a question answered first. What is the difference between the "Premium" hardcover and the "Standard" hardcover? Glossiness? Color saturation? What would you consider the 1E hardbacks?

Thank you!

The primary difference between Standard Color Heavyweight and Premium Color Heavyweight books is the ink and process in which the books are printed.

Standard Heavyweight Color uses inkjet technology. This option offers lower cost but the colors won't be as sharp or bright as a Premium Color book.

Premium Heavyweight Color uses a digital offset press. This option offers superior color quality but is more expensive to produce.

Does the POD include the errata fixes?

Even if it does, the final PDF has a lot more mistakes than what is actually listed in the Errata. So I'd wait a while if I were you.

Ever so many errors. And the errata doesnt help horrible layout consistency.

Does this version have all the errata applied to it or is it still the pre-errata version from a couple months ago?

If I remember from last update I've got this is current version with all the errata incorporated.

Is this only available as a PoD? I thought Onyx Path said they would be printing Scion as an offset book and putting it into distribution like Pugmire.

The owner of my FLGS said that it was being printed and that he could order it; although he wouldn't be unless specifically requested since he has beef with Onyx Path.

Just like Pugmire, Monarchies of Mau, Cavaliers of Mars, the Scarred Lands Players Guide, and Changeling: the Lost 2nd Edition the Scion: Origin and Scion: Hero books have been released in multiple formats (PDF, PoD, Offset for distribution). We're not going to promote those other options on a DriveThruRPG page however.

Thanks for clarifying that.

Original electronic
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.
