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.

This is essential material.

This got me back into D&D after I was disillusioned by 4th Edition and it's still something I pick up and read every once in a while.

I would not be a game designer if it were not for this book.
I cannot recommend this strongly enough; it needs 7 stars.

Download it. Play it. Revel in the grandeur of being a Grecian hero, and if you're doing it online, let me know so I can join in.


Excellent

*****

I've always loved the Greek Myths, and this product really helps capture the feel of them, and a few alterations (like the rules for Bronze in UC, as well as Armor as DR) make this something that's a pleasure to DM for. For $Free.99, why have you not downloaded this yet?

My Review--------
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.

Why I oughta.....

It's pretty cool though and designed to be real gritty. No spellcasting classes besides the old one-eyed hag type, very limited healing, not a bunch of magic items and stores for them. It really looks cool and the alternate rules for handling the differences are really well thought-out. I love the change to Poison and plan to implement that in my game immediately.


I only skimmed it so far, but I'm interested to see how well it could be fused, theoretically, with Green Ronin's Trojan War (which is a bit higher magic in tone). SKR does great work, so I know eventually I'll dig into this, though I have spent a bit more time digging through Hungry Little Monsters so far.

Seriously, this looks tons of fun. I just downloaded it. Now if I could only find some players. Maybe a PbP?

Fake Healer, if you are going to DM a PBP, I'd definitely like to join. Never been in a PbP game before, but I'm willing to learn.

Thanks for the kind words. :)

Don't forget to check out the freebies and previews for this book: link


I got this awhile ago when it was available elsewhere - and I've been recommending it highly anytime someone asks about 'Greek Rules'.

No jokes, please. ;)

I have the rules (yay, Sean) and enough time for another Play-by-post, if it were to come to pass.


Maybe I'm completely dull, but in what way I can download this file? I can't find any link or something like that. I know maybe I'm an idiot but simply I don't know :P

Thanks very much. This was simply so simple that is looks difficult.

No problem. It probably confused you (I know it confused me) as there are some things which you can just download and some you have to add to your cart and "purchase". It's an easy thing to overlook. =)

Any talk about "Pathfinderizing" this supp?

I don't have much incentive to spend time upgrading a product that is free, but of course the community can do so. The base classes can just switch to the PF version, the Hellenic Sorceress probably needs some tuning, and the example monsters could use a look.


The OGL content from this product (minus the monsters at this time) has been updated to PFRPG and added to D20PFRPG.com.

Mashing up this with my (also old) Mythic Greece setting for Rolemaster will make for a new challenge for my group!

Ruyan.


Hello,

I have a question about the Leaping Strike feat. It says "Medium size" in its prerequisites. Is it Medium size only, or at least? (would a Large creature be able to take it?)

Thanks.


Hmmm... nobody interested in older books?

In addition to my previous question:
If it is Medium-only, can I take it as a Medium creature and use it once Enlarged?
If it is not Medium-only, are the jump DC static or dependant on the size difference?

And... since this feat says it activates when I jump during a charge, can I use that jump to skip over some difficult terrain as well?
Can I activate Flying Kick during the same charge?

If anyone answers, thanks.
