A millennia-spanning mystery for use with award-winning Monster of the Week system and other horror games!

In ancient Greece a group of Spartan children who survived being „left for death” became the new, multi-bodied incarnation of the mythical Hydra. United by a hive mind they head for Sparta to get their revenge. They can be stopped but not killed so once stopped they’ll surely be back. For example – now!


It’s still Sparta! is a mystery that takes place in two incarnations both in mythical ancient Greece and in contemporary Sparta. The players first temporarily take the roles of Spartan heroes who try to stop the monsters from ravaging their city. Clio, the Muse of History, promises them that their memories of this fight will be given to their successors when the monsters strike again. When they do in our times, it’s up to your regular hunters to finish the Spartans’ struggle and defeat them for good.

In the mystery you'll find:

  • A millennia-spanning struggle between Hydra and Clio
  • Advice and rules for running a unique, two-layer adventure for Spartan heroes and modern monster hunters, including a special one-use character sheet
  • Locations and NPCs to make both ancient and moderns Sparta vivid, living cities
  • Advice on fitting the Greek mythology into mythology of your ongoing campaign.

It’s still Sparta! is the third installment of Monsters of Europe, a series of mysteries inspired by facts and legends from all around Europe. You can find the first one: The Haunted Case of Eleonore Zugun and the second one, Blood in Budapest.

Running the mystery using default rules requires Monster of the Week core rulebook, available from Evil Hat Productions:

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.
