The New Argonauts

Watermarked PDF

Updated: This new version of the file has easier-to-read maps and corrections to the feats and monsters sections.

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).

Be sure to read the readme file.

MYTHIC!!!! I housemates and I decided to do an Ancient Greek setting in Pathfinder. I started doing research, reskinning Golarion's top 20 gods to Greek, looking up tips for running Greek games–THEN STOPPED WHEN I FOUND THIS BOOK! It's got all the in [...]

I thought the idea of picking a rules system to write a game was to pick something that really fits. Instead most of the book is a list of parts of the d20 system that you can't use. He should have tried using Savage Worlds, Runequest or Entropic's sys [...]

Severly disappointed with this supplement. The HUGE limitations it encompasses on the players are unsurmountable in my opinion. Basically the only option to play is a human fighter, and that's not what I'm playing fantasy games for (this being made for [...]

I was pretty disappointed. Free is free, of course, and considering the respectable effort put into organizing this supplement there are certainly things you can glean from it. But even though the author disclaims at the beginning that he is not trying [...]

Original electronic
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.
