Few tales are told of Hades, whose very name inspires fear and penitence, remind us of the inevitable fate which we all share.
We however, mean to tell you such a tale. So listen carefully...
You are a child of a god - some sort of lesser god, demi-god, hero, villain perhaps -- a character out of Greek mythology. Across the river Styx lie the various realms of the Underworld -- Erebus, the abode of the dead; the Asphodel Meadows, where ordinary souls are sent to spend their afterlife; the Elysian Fields, reserved for the righteous and heroic; and Tartarus, an abyss as deep as it is dark, where the wicked receive divine punishment.
Do you have the courage and cunning to cheat death?
This is an Amber-like, where you'll be playing a character out of Greek myths. Please try to pick one that others will know, or at least provide the GMs with as much information as possible if you're choosing a more obscure inspiration. We'll help you with character creation.
Have an idea or three for a character from Greek mythology. We'll do some character creation before the game.
Some knowledge of Greek mythology is good!
No reference at all to the comic of the same name (The Wicked & The Divine) - I just stole the title.
