Scion Solo Adventures


Scion Solo Adventures

There are many ways to play role-playing games. For most of us, the immediate picture in your mind’s eye is that of a group of friends around a dining room table with everyone sat in front of their character sheet and dice, books scattered around.

It is probably more likely that most role-players are actually sat in front of their PC playing their favorite game via chat on Discord or maybe a virtual desktop or even writing posts to send to a forum in a PBP game. Time is so precious today that the combination of trying to schedule enough time regularly enough to host or join a regular game is beyond the means of far too many players.

When you can play, often the only game available is some form of D&D, just because that is what people know. It is the lowest common denominator of RPGs. If you want to play something more offbeat, like Scion then you are probably going to be forced online.

Or, there is another option. Too many games get bought only to languish on Storyguides bookshelves. This booklet will address that.

Solo play can offer a unique experience. In all other forms of role-playing, there is a loss of fidelity between what the Storyguide, or GM, describes and what the player imagines. This happens with every scene, every NPC, and even how every piece of dialogue is delivered. In solo play, there is no loss of information. The understanding is perfect.

This book will show you how to solo play and get the most out of these solo sessions as it is about providing the rules. It is one thing to have the tools but if you don’t know how to use them…

DriveThruRPG does not support Community Copies. The entire text of this supplement is viewable in the Full-size preview. If you cannot afford the cover price, please feel free to use the preview with my full blessing.

I have World of Darkness and Vampire Requiem, I notice on your WoD Solo Adventures supplement you say to use this one as it's expanded. The Scion part threw me, so should I get this one?

Also, as one of the WoD Solo reviews mentioned would this work with the Chronicles of Darkness series (to which, confusingly, World of Darkness belongs), or the old World of Darkness series (e.g Vampire: Masquerade)?

The full-size preview of this title and the WoD Solo Adventures both contain the entire supplements. If you take a look at them, and see which one best fits the versions you play. I would hate for you to buy the wrong one.

I personally now use the Scion rules for all of these games, but then I wrote them, so I am biased.

Would this be compatible with Trinity Continuum, which uses the same ruleset but with a vastly different setting?

This book uses wordlists to provide improvisation prompts, a bit like word association. Although a couple of the provided wordlists may not be suitable, there is a link on the least page to where you can find free compatible wordlists. This means that you should be able to replace the wordlists if they are not working for you.

Given that one change, everything else should be compatible.

Do you have to buy other scion books to play it, or are all the rules included in it ?

These are just add on rules. You must have Scion to use this supplement.
I would imagine it would be highly illegal to sell an alternative core rule book.

I think so, but you can download the entire PDF as the full-size preview. Why not grab it and see if it works for you?

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.
