All right, everyone's got an item or weapon now, plus a boost to their existing divine aspect. More powers will come soon, I promise.

To anyone else watching, don't feel that just because the game's already started that you can't join in. You'll have to start out as an Unawakened, but you'll get upgraded very soon, I promise, if you do.

I love your choice of weapons for Lupo. They are perfect for a boxer. They don't have much reach, but he doesn't have to change his tactics or learn how to use some other weapon.

GM POST

At the moment, this only really applies to Kiki, but since it'll apply to the rest of you very soon, I figured it best to get this out in the open now so everyone can plan accordingly.

As freshly Awakened Scions, everyone has received the aforementioned boost to their initial divine gift, as well as a weapon. Once everyone gets their focus, you'll get your additional powers as well. I, as the GM, reserve the right to veto someone's power as necessary, but let's talk about the two types of powers that we'll have to worry about.

Subtle powers are not unlike your divine gifts. They can be used without most people realizing it's beyond mortal ability. They're not flashy, but like the name implies, they're also subtle. There's only so much they can do. Most of these powers enhance qualities about a Scion: physical, mental, etc. With an effort of will, these can be pushed into performing quite extraordinary feats, but doing so will tick that usage up from subtle to overt.

Overt powers are much more flashy, and much more akin to outright superpowers. Most Scions and the more intelligent Titanspawn try to avoid overt displays of power in public view, lest the mundanes realize something's up. Summoning your divine weapons is considered an 'overt act'.

Once a freshly Awakened Scion has their focus, you (the player) can select from the following for their additional powers:
  • Two subtle powers
  • One subtle power and one overt power
  • One powerful overt power

For instance, Paul Brighton is a Scion of Apollo, the Greek god of the sun. He's got a subtle power of persuasion, and an overt power of sunfire. He can conjure up flames of sunlight, which he mostly restricts to using when he's got something trapped in his chain weapon.

Anna Green and Art Mooney both have a subtle power of perception, enabling them to track prey or people, and subtle powers of wits, enabling them to react quickly to attack. Anna ticked her perception power up to 'overt' briefly (the flash in her eyes) when she used it to see through Kiki's invisibility.

Ordinarily, it takes quite some time for a Scion to climb the ranks and get more powers, but our heroes here are destined for greatness, so they'll likely get upgraded more quickly than most.

Still working on Kiki, but this is just so I can remember the new Lupo.

Lupo

Combat Mimicry - Any fighting move/style he sees even once, he can copy perfectly. No matter how good his enemy he only has to fight them once to be as good as they are.
Inner Focus - Not only allows him to fight in any possible condition (total darkness, blinding snow, etc), but he can block out all distractions.

Divine Attributes:

Stamina - His stamina is much higher then the normal persons. He doesn't know the meaning of the word 'quit'.

Strength - He is far stronger then your average person.

I will Put the rest of his stats later and keep working on Kiki

Riley

Subtle: Just Go with It: If she isn't being overtly hostile or taking any obviously flashy actions or otherwise drawing attention to herself people tend to ignore Riley's presence.

Overt: This isn't the Scion You're Looking For: Sneaking into places can be difficult. Rather than take the stealthy approach Riley is able to at will assume the guise and voice of the person the observer expected to see the most. While this is a fairly powerful ability it has the immediate draw back in that she has no clue who the observer is seeing and can therefore backfire if she acts improperly.

Liam

Overt (powerful): Awareness of the Creator: Liam is able to talk to the world, literally. He is able to communicate with the primal forces of nature and "ask" favors or information of them. Anything that is a taint/blight/threat to the land he will be aware of simply by being in skin contact with the earth. Further he can speak with natural animals, plants, spirits, elementals or whatever else that is a part of nature that may be present. This is not a one sided power however. Nature expects much of its creator and her children. Should Liam fail to aid nature when it is threatened then it will remember and be less inclined to provide him aid. Further he can't just order nature around. If he wants an animal, elemental or spirit to do something for him he must promise something in return. Lastly this power has its limits. Obviously in a crowded man made structure, or the heart of the city very few spirits of nature will be present, and making skin contact with the earth is all but impossible in large urban settings.

Working on an overt for Kiki, but it would need GM Approval..not sure if it would be considered overpowered or not. Since she already has invisibility, no powerful overt for her . I just wonder what her divine boost to stats will be . Maybe agility and speed?

Anyhow..here is the overt..I call it..

Prismatic Spray

A rainbow colored mist sprays out from her hand/hands that will blind any target and apply ONE random effect from a list of seven (one for each color of the rainbow).

Red - Any target hit by the spray catches fire.
Orange - Any target hit by the spray falls sound asleep
Yellow - Any target hit glows brightly..pretty much making it impossible for them to hide.
Green - Any target hit suffers a mild poison which is not fatal..but not fun either
Blue - Any target hit becomes passive. Not wanting to fight or do much of anything.
Indigo - Any target hit suffers blisters and boils..doesn't do much but annoy them
Violet - Any target is teleported (safely) two miles in a random direction. They will not teleport into a wall, over a chasm, or any place that might hurt them however.

Just a thought for ya, and its very much in keeping with Iris. Why not have Prismatic Spray put mundies to sleep and make them forget the last several minutes before going to sleep?

Used on non-mundies it could stun/disorient them instead.

The only issue I see with it now is that there is no real way to determine what gets hit by what color, other than J2K just making a ruling, which would get to be a PAIN every time its used.

Yeah, I think Kiki's Prismatic Spray, as Mytical described, is a bit too powerful. I could see it getting upgraded, especially as she hits demigodhood, but Chanlin's idea-- effectively a quasi-neuralyzer (or memory worm, if you're a Whovian).

GM Ruling-- Prismatic Spray can work as a knockout gas/quasi-neuralyzer, that can work on anything at Kiki's power level or below. Anything above that, all it will do is stun or disorient them, without affecting their memory. That work for you, Mytical? (I'm a reasonable GM, and willing to let the players have some say in things.)

Riley and Liam's powers pass muster. Nice work on making sure there's drawbacks to the overt powers as well. Liam's power, in particular, is in fitting with the Celtic geasa since he's required to tend to the world in order to still receive the benefits of his power. Well done.

As for Lupo, the Combat Mimicry power ('Seen That One Before' as I'm mentally calling it) and Inner Focus power both work, and I did state that Lupo got a boost of strength when he received his cesti, so those all work as well.

I was going off a spell in D&D combining Prismatic Spray (blindness) with Prismatic Shield (the big difference is that the shield you would have to save vs ALL the effects to get past it (and the effects are probably not exact I don't remember what color did what on that spell). Way I was thinking was it would be one effect each time it was used, for all/anybody hit. To give Jay a way of saying "Well I definitely don't want this person burned..he/she is a major player" and applying whichever effect he wanted. (ie no 'roll' or anything needed..Jay would be able to choose whatever he wanted each time it was used).

TL;DR Jay could pick one effect of his choice and have everybody hit with it be effected by THAT effect, not a different one for each person. I thought it would be funny to never know what it was going to do

However, I am fine with the changes. Basically it is for those people who CAN see her so she can escape. She is not a combat person. I thought about some sort of poison that she could apply to throwing weapons or her hands..but this power goes better with her being Isis's daughter. Also thought of a rainbow bridge which she could use to transport her or anybody else to anywhere she wanted swiftly..but didn't know how one could explain a rainbow over a city...*laughs*

Heh, duly noted on the possible effects and how it would be GM-based. That may come into play when Kiki gets it upgraded, but hasn't got control over it yet.

As for the whole rainbow bridge thing, recall the last game. Agatha Riggs was a daughter of Heimdall, and she had a knife forged from a piece of Heimdall's sword, which allowed her to cut a 'hole' in space through which she could travel to various places in the nine realms.

Kiki's prismatic crystal pendant-tool can't do that... yet.
