Olympian Breed - Setting Primer & Character Creation Guide

Watermarked PDF

Save the world it’s your birthright

This is an age of myth, before the beginning of recorded Greek history.

YOU will play one of the great demigod heroes, born half human and half God. Do you know the truth about your blood? Will your demigod seek immortality through brave deeds or through guile? Will you choose to embrace your destiny or let the Gods push you to your fate? Will your name be remembered and as everlasting as the Olympians themselves?

Experience the age of heroes before Homer’s Iliad and the Odyssey when demigods roamed the world, slaying horrifying titans and fulfilling ominous prophecies, and explore the classic themes of Greek mythology—heroism, faith, love, tragedy, generosity, and sacrifice in this adventure for the Savage Worlds game system. Your demigods will fight to overcome their own human trappings and prove to be more than just mere mortals while discovering that their Godly parents are far more human than they were led to believe.

Are you up to the task?

The setting primer includes everything you need to create characters in this world including a custom character sheet, a map and some detailed setup about the game.

I’ll start this review by first saying what Olympian Breed is not. It’s not a complete mythic Greece setting for Savage Worlds. Rather, Olympian Breed is a series of short adventures that are set in mythic Greece. You don’t have to be a scholar [...]

Nice brief introduction to the setting, good production values, BEAUTIFUL map of the region. My one complaint is that it's a bit thin on background--but, more than likely, if you're considering running a game set in Greek legendry to begin with, you're [...]

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.
