    The evolution of the Storypath system is tied to our work on Trinity: Continuum, a world of hope, heroism, and peril, and Scion, a world where the children of the old gods walk the earth. Early on, we found that both new editions of these games had similar system needs, because their characters are larger-than-life and fight in epic battles on a grand scale. We knew we needed a system that could accommodate everyday citizens on the street, superheroes soaring above skyscrapers, and gods of the sun and sky, but we also wanted rules to help facilitate the connection between the player-characters, their organizations (Allegiances for Trinity and Pantheons for Scion), and their values. To move forward, however, we needed to take a step back, because the first editions of Trinity: Continuum and Scion used custom variants of the Storyteller System which powered Vampire: The Masquerade and other classic White Wolf games. Despite the differences between those variants, however, at its core the Storyteller System was designed chiefly as a horror game for creatures that could be effectively fought by human opponents. In other words, the Storyteller System is great for vampires, but it didn’t excel at portraying superheroes…or gods! To us, this meant that the stories of these action-adventure games were hindered by their original systems. The Storypath System was designed as a new set of rules, inspired by the legacy of the Storyteller and Storytelling Systems, in addition to other story-centric rules. The Storypath System keeps the focus on narrative, story-built play, and action-adventure. It also draws inspiration from a number of other influences that focus on a cinematic high-octane action and storytelling, as well, to create a streamlined experience for epic stories. Within these pages, you’ll find a preview of the rules and examples for both Scion and Trinity: Continuum. We hope you enjoy the new Storypath System and are inspired to roll the dice and tell great stories! - Onyx Path Design Team
  2. The morning comes and final preparations are made for the trip to Mamoru Kyotei Toshi. Horses are watered and fed, gear is secured, prayers and offerings for safe travel are made. Shun and Etsuko, as Unicorns are wont to do, checks each horse, ensuring they are in good physical shape and making saddles and packs are properly secured. One of the most tangible perks of being a Jade Magistrate is quickly apparent. Not only are travel papers not a requirement, but the benefit of freedom of movement across the lands of the clans is not to be underestimated. Traditionally, to reach Mamoru Kyotei Toshi from Tsuma, one would have to stay on the Imperial Roads and travel east, all the way to Otosan Uchi and then north to Mamoru Kyotei Toshi. And old, disused road connects Shiro no Yojin (Castle of Vigilance) and Shiro sano Kakita, left over from when the Crane clan controlled the castle. Since the Matsu claimed the castle, the road has seen little use. It has not been properly maintained, but is still serviceable, and taking this road is a much more direct route to your destination, saving easily a week of travel. The trip is long and largely uneventful. Most of the daylight hours are spent riding or occasionally walking your horse in order to stretch the legs (especially for those new to riding). Breaks are taken with some frequency and lunch is typically eaten along the side of the road at a suitable spot or in a small, roadside 'diner' (barely more than a tiny kitchen with a counter at which you can sit and eat). Nights are spent in way stations, inns or the occasional estate or castle in the Lion lands as some of the local daimyo or governors hear that the Topaz Champion and the saviors of the Lord Prince (Darling of the Court) is passing through. In general the Lions are less concerned or impressed by the Topaz Champion as they are by the fact that you all protected the Hantei line with such honor. Along the roads through the lands of the Lion, you are met by many Matsu patrols. A few words from Kageko and the display of your jade orbs means that there is little incident. You pass by Shiro no Yojin (Castle of Vigilance), a castle the Matsu captured from the Crane near Tsuma with it's massive, eight story tower. The castle is built beside a river (to the rear) and on a massive earthen mound with a single path leading the the gates between two watchtowers. Set atop the mound, the main tower reaches easily a hundred feet above the plains giving a commanding view of the plains for miles in every direction.. Days later you pass Shiro Akodo (Loyality Castle) to the northeast. Keen observers will notice that Akodo castle is not what it once was. The daring and glorious acts of the Matsu family have begun to eclipse the history of the Akodo family. Akodo Toturi, the new Lion Clan Daimyo as well as the Emperor's general and military advisor, commands the Lion armies from the castle. It is fairly common knowledge that Matsu Tsuko, the new Matsu Daimyo sees Toturi are weak and far too cerebral and is constantly pushing for an attack to reclaim Toshi Ranbo and avenge her betrothed, Toturi's own brother. Toturi though, has been unmoved by her relentless urging. From Shiro Akodo the road leads north through the northern most stretch of the Lion's lands toward Mamoru Kyotei Toshi, passing through the new Crane lands, recently acquired from the Lion. As you rest in a way station one night in the lands of the Crane, a rider is dispatched and come the next morning a Crane bushi arrives after breakfast, greeting you all. "Konichiwa. I am Hideji Daizo no Doji. Lord Hideji would like to extend an invitation to the Topaz Champion and all of the Lord Prince's guardians and Jade Magistrates to be his guest at his castle so that you may rest during your long journey and enjoy his hospitality. He currently hosts Lord Daidoji Uji as well as dignitaries from the Lion and Phoenix and would be furthered honored with your presence." the Crane says after a respectful bow. "The castle is not far, only hours from here and I have been instructed to guide you there should you see fit to honor my Lord by accepting his invitation." he further adds. Notes. Please Read. Konichiwa: "Good morning" Hideji Daizo no Doji: Vassal families introduce themselves by adding the name of the family they serve. So in this case, "Hideji Daizo no Doji" means "Hideji Daizo of the Doji" with the vassal family name being Hideji. After the introduction they may be referred to by their vassal family name. (See the "Great Clans" entry of this post for more information).
