The Demi Dozen is a game of Scion: Second Edition, where the player characters are the offspring, progeny, or chosen of various deities. It follows the adventures of the S.S. Iphigenia, a doomed cruise ship, lost in the lands of myth and trying to sail home.

The Storyguide running the game varies from chapter to chapter.

Regular Cast Edit

Premise: Edit

Our six heroes all boarded (or stowed away) on the Iphigenia, a world-record-sized cruise ship built by tech billionaire (and Scion of Hermes) Byron Blake. The ship was aptly named, as it was secretly a massive sacrifice to propel Byron into Godhood. While the heroes did manage to stop the ritual, the ship was lost in the mists between realms, and now sails through terra incognitae and various otherworlds as it tries to find its way home. Onboard are several of "Byron's Besties", his cabal of Scion investors who intended to join him in godhood, and are actively trying to finish the ritual by sinking the ship. Also complicating things is the presence of player character Dani, who is an AEsir fated to die on a sinking ship.
