Description:

Blood of the Gods is a Wild Talents setting for heroic roleplaying in the ancient Greece of myth and legend. 

Blending well-researched history with the power and savagery of Greek mythology, it lets players take the role of heroes and heroines who are descended from the gods themselves, gifted with powers from their divine forebears and from the gods they have chosen as patrons. But each must beware hubris! The gods are watching.

Blood of the Gods provides everything you need to launch a Wild Talents campaign of epic heroism in the ancient world.

Contents

  • Heroes and Antagonists (new skills, weapons, the Divine Hero archetype)
  • Gods and Religion (hubris, contact with the gods, gods and titans, Olympian gods and goddesses)
  • Gifts (divine powers built with Wild Talents rules)
  • Ancient Greek Culture and Beliefs (divine heroes, the polis, philosophy and technology, women in mythic Greece, and more)
  • Real and Mythical Places (from Argos to the Underworld)
  • Events (an overview of the 6th century BCE)
  • Example Characters (seven heroes ready to play)
  • Monsters (16 creatures from Greek myth)
  • Sample Adventure: Funeral Games (intrigue and heroism—which will win out?)
  • Sample Adventure: The Golden Fleece (follow the path of Jason of the Argonauts!)
  • Adventure Seeds (six ideas to build new adventures and campaigns)

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
