I eagerly awaited this book and I was not disappointed.
This is not a game for laying historically, 100% accurate Greek adventures. It is for playing the Greek Adventures of Myth, Hollywood, and Harryhausen. Clash of the Titans meets Troy meets 300 meets Jason and the Argonauts.
The simple yet flexible and very role-playable Barbarians of Lemuria game engine provides the perfect set of rules for adventuring in Hellas and the publisher exploits that to the full extent.
You get several new careers as well as some excellent takes on old options. Add to that a very nice and detailed set of origin countries, some new twists on boons and flaws, and you get an easy-to-understand character generation system that lets you quickly make up complex Hellenic Heroes in only a few minutes.
The author adds some new abilities, like Kreos and Fate, to help round out the characters as they adventure, and some new abilities, incluing Greek Bardic Magic, allow for some nice additions to the BoL line as well as being fun on their own.
Mass combat, followers, and sea travel (and battle) are expanded on in the 106 page rulebook, along with pages and pages of monsters and creatures from greek and Hollywood mythology.
I'd say this is a must for any fan of BoL or Greek Adventure roleplaying or Harryhausen film adventures...
