A pawn in motion is worth more than a stoic Queen…

In 1851 two men play one of the most famous games of chess where one player sacrificed all but a Bishop and Knight where he still managed to checkmate his opponent. The game is infamous for proving that a queen isn’t worth its point cost if it doesn’t do anything.

The Gods are in Heaven and all is fine. However, the Titans are coming. The Gods are held in check by powerful and old oaths that keep them in check. Those that claim to server the Titans are held in check by those same oaths, it is only through proxies can either act.

As the Gods cannot directly influence the world they must move through proxies. Cults, true believers, mystics and Scions. The Scions are the strongest pawns they have, how do the Gods use the children that were sired in a moment of “weakness” without losing these pieces or worse make them into another piece all together.

They must be used carefully for they are not as easily lead as mortals.
