We’ve been silent too long!

April 1st, 2017

Hey Guys, its been tooooooooo long since we've gamed and podcasted with you all! So its been painful trying to get the group together between new jobs, health issues and well life in general! I've been wondering if we should startup a new group of Scions and what your opinions of that would be or if their was some ther game you think could fit in here on the podcast. I'vebeen told Gods of the Fall or Savage Rifts might be good place holders, but of course I'm wondering what you guys think! I'm still trying to get some of the group together to do a Prequel Viking era story that is back story to the Demigods mission but well see how that works out.

I'llput up a poll on the Patreon site that everyone can vote on!
