This book by Sean K Reynolds gives you everything you need to run a campaign in mythic Greece. Rather than cramming dwarves, paladins, and otyughs into a Greek setting, The New Argonauts presents a low-magic campaign (but still with a touch of the fantastic and divine) where the focus is on Greek-style heroes, their battles against strange monsters, and great quests. This book gives insights on how a low-magic campaign affects character concepts and game balance, an overview of Greek culture, history, the Olympian pantheon, the original Olympic Games, and advice on running a mythic Greek campaign. Gamers who love crunchy bits can find new feats and spells, a set of heroic powers derived from godly bloodlines, a campaign-themed spellcasting class, simple magic items based on parts from mythic monsters, and over thirty monsters drawn from the Greek myths (many rewritten from the core version to suit a low-magic campaign).

About the Cover Artist: Brooklyn-based illustrator Gerald Lee went through college thinking his soon-to-be mentor Tony DiTerlizzi was in fact a girl. Fortunately, Tony was amused by this mistake and agreed to take Gerald as an apprentice. Gerald has a certain knack for meeting great artists throughout the industry and applying what he learns from them (through trial and error and a lot of imagination) to his own art. Expect to see a lot more from his drawing board.

Sets the tone incredibly well.

I've got an MA in Ancient Greek History, and bitter experience made me approach this warily. However, I was presently surprised. The ideas within 'feel' right, artfully finding space for an Odyssey/Argonauts style romp in the d20 ruleset - well played, sir.


Haven't Playtested yet, but I really intend to soon!!!

Oh my. Where to begin. Another good SKR and company product! I read through it and felt like I could actually use this to lead my Players through a Mythological Greek movie-style campaign! I can't wait to finish my Savage Tide face-to-face path and start up a short path in this setting! I may start a short PBP also, if I can find the time to.
Good job again, SKR and Co.
