HELLAS is an epic space opera in the style of ancient Greek culture and legend. Every player character is a Hero in a story that you will help create, with the power to influence the settings and elements of the game. HELLAS spans multiple generations, allowing for the continuation of the epic story even after the death of a Hero, in the style of the epic poets of old.
This book contains:
- rules and charts to use a modified Omni System with a Grecian flair
- a life path system to construct a detailed, epic back story for your Hero
- mechanics that allow for permanent change in the universe, to ensure the players are the primary (and most important) elements in the story
- an introductory campaign, setting the stage for the first 25 years of this century-long epic, along with a dozen short "side-quest style" adventures
- detailed maps, descriptions, and statistics for ease of play
- and so much more!
May your brave deeds be remembered forever, as you lead the Hellenes to victory!
