Since I was young, dabbling in dice and decks on the tabletop - I always found it difficult to connect with Historical games and systems that themed around real-life events. I envied the likes of my friends who would dabble in battle from across the ages whilst I sat and played with my fantasy board games, deep into mythology and lore. The combination of Greek History and Mythology has now been combined as part of an upcoming RPG, and it is currently on Kickstarter.

Players head into Aegean - a tabletop RPG focussing on a band of Mythic warriors in search to build a city free of slavery and rich in culture across the Aegean Sea.

Whether you are looking to make friends or enemies across the Greek isles - that pathway is your choice. Players could access the neighbouring islands as part of trading and negotiations, however, if you wanted to go to war and annoy a God or two along the way - the Aegean Sea is your oyster!

Heading into the game system Aegean, players will enter a world that never existed as mythology and Greek history have teamed up to create a truly interesting turn of events in time.

It isn’t all gods and monsters in Aegean (although that is a particularly good bit to focus on in Greek mythology…), mythical creatures such as centaurs, nymphs and tritons are no stranger to the lands of Greece - ready to engage with humanity once more.

The system used is simple, utilising a dice pool of D10 for your actions: “The resolution mechanic uses a familiar D10 dice pool. Each die that rolls an 8+ is a success and the more successes you roll the better your achievement.”
