A Purview is a set of powers accessed by the gods and their offspring in Scion. Purviews are groupings of powers based on a common theme. A single power within a Purview is called a Boon.

There are three types of Purviews: all-purpose, pantheon-specific, and special. Any god or scion can learn any Boon from any all-purpose Purview, provided they have the right means, but only members of a particular pantheon may learn their specially-created Purview reflecting their innate natures and values. Special Purviews can also be accessed by any god or scion, but are learned and activated by a different means from the more standard all-purpose ones.

Gods have innate access to their Purviews, but scions cannot channel the energies to do so, and therefore must have Birthrights, specifically relic-type ones, to learn and use the powers of the gods. If a scion succeeds in gaining enough Legend to attain godhood, they no longer need rely on their Birthrights for access to Boons.
