Designed to be
While maintaining a lot of the 5e flavour, we are also changing and expanding the rules, offering a game play that is both familiar and refreshingly challenging.
Faithful to the sources, the mythology and the historical period, we have created unique and original character classes that sometimes blur the lines of what is typically found in most swords & sorcery role-playing games. The characters are rich in flavour and role-playing hooks, but also armed with original abilities and powers.
Aiming to reflect the intense relationship between mortals and Gods and the unique flavour of magic in the Greek cosmos, spells have been re-worked, magic has been tweaked and new rules have been introduced, which bring to life the realities of Greek, Egyptian and Chaldean sorcery and worship.
True to Ancient Greek mythology and cosmos, our world is a world of men and women, heroes defending civilization and fighting for glory, setting themselves against men, beasts and Gods. The Greek cosmos does not have elves, dwarves, halflings and other such races, typical in fantasy swords & sorcery games. There is a multitude of mythological beings, peoples and monsters across the Land of Myth, but they are not the heroes of our story.
The Heroic Age of
the Trojan War
The storyline of the game combines the timeless aspects of the Greek mythological heritage with the heroic legacy of the Trojan War. This is an epic world of magic, journeys to the Underworld, conflicts, and challenges by the Gods and Fate, where every adventurer aspires to attain Heroic status and reach Apotheosis.
Who We Are
Seven Thebes is a London based start-up company with a strong Greek background, dedicated to creating tabletop games and especially pen-and-paper role-playing games. Our focus is on developing anthropocentric games, based on actual mythological and historical traditions - although we are constantly exploring new horizons. Our first game, 'Land of Myth: The Age of Palaces', has been developed with strong foundations on actual Ancient Greek primary sources on mythology and history, while at the same time, creating a fun and epic environment based on the 5th edition .
