Hero Games - The Olympians
From the back cover:
"The Olympians. Remember Zeus, Hera, Athena, Apollo, Poseidon, Dionysus - the Gods of Classical Greece, the ancient deities who inspired men to heroic deeds?
The second war against the Titans was long and difficult. When the gods had finally won, Zeus decided to re-open the portal to Earth. But instead of ancient Classical Greece, the Greek gods emerged into 20th century Earth.
Some are taking to it better than others. Stunning Aphrodite has joined the ranks of super models, and Hermes is doing PR for an overnight courier. Zeus, however, is unhappy at the changes that have occurred since he left Earth. And in the depths of Tartarus, Cronus and the other Titans plot their revenge.
Is mankind ready for the second arrival of The Olympians?
The Olympians Contains:
- Full write-ups for the principle Greek gods, including details on their current activities. Hunt with Artemis, or party with Dionysus! There are also statistics for prominent monsters from Greek myth, including the Cyclops, the Nereids, and the Furies.
- Guidelines for creating additional Greek gods, including gods as Player Characters.
- Full details and layouts for interesting Greek locations, including Olympus and Tartarus, the Land of the Dead.
- Campaign guidelines for using the Greek gods in a Champions campaign.
