Bringing a touch of Greek Mythology to the world of Dungeons & Dragons, Mythic Odysseys Of Theros is a new campaign sourcebook which is coming to the tabletop later this year in June.

The new book takes you into another world from Magic: The Gathering. A lot of the focus is around the deeds of heroes, the slaying of massive monsters and deities that control the fates. Theros features fifteen gods that you can pledge yourself to as you play through a world heavily inspired by ancient mythology.

  • Introducing supernatural gifts—abilities that set your character apart from the common throng. Mechanically similar to character races, each one gives your character a variety of traits.
  • Select one of the new races for your character—such mythic peoples as the leonin or a satyr.
  • New subclasses include the Bard’s College of Eloquence, masters of oratory; and the Paladin’s Oath of Heroism, an affirmation of destiny laid out for you by divine providence.
  • Encounter mythic monsters, creatures whose power and renown are such that their names are truly living myths. More than simply legendary, these creatures have abilities that will create a challenge fit for the gods.
  • Wield god-weapons, signature items of the gods that allow your character to stand apart from other heroes. These can be a gift from your deity or perhaps you boldly stole it from them in a bid for ultimate power.

It is nice to see that the folks at Wizards Of The Coast have taken some more from the world of Magic: The Gathering and built it into their roleplaying world. As with anything that anyone does for Dungeons & Dragons, you don't have to be a Magic fan in order to get the most out of this. You could just use some of the options presented here in order to bulk up your existing campaigns set in different worlds.

I like the idea of taking monsters and races from these campaign sourcebooks and then using that to add a bit more spice into your traditional campaigns.
